Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A bloody sniping. Some bloody wounds in a drug plantation shootout. 4 F words in a rap song in the background.

Know your child

Yes, this movie is violent. However, my 13-year-old son holds a first degree black belt in karate, and has been familiar with and followed the code of the martial artist since he was six (i.e., fight only in self-defense, don't attack). Although others may disagree, I feel that children who have had this training understand about the differences in the use of physical violence in movies and real life. I think the guns were over-present, though. P.S. We always enjoy the scenes of bloopers at the end of his movies; my son knows that during his career, Jackie has broken almost every bone in his body, and that violent actions do have consequences.
