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.

Shallow guilty pleasure

The movie makes no sense. No more violent than Marvel. 30 f words. Topless Halle Berry and the bizzare use of oral sex as torture. Fun.

Waste of time...

Despite a cool explosion in the beginning, there's nothing else here worth seeing. Literally. The story is hard to follow, the acting isn't good (which is surprising), and event he rest of the action scenes are dull. Parents: if you or your kids end up seeing this horrible movie there are some things you should know: there's bloody wounds with every action scene, nudity, strong sexual content, and pervasive language. Bottom Line: Don't waste your time on this thriller when there are so much better ones out there. Thanks for reading! - Movie Man
