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.

Awesome movie for tween to teens and older.

Minimal bad language and sexual references, which so hard to get these days. Great escapism, would easily watch again.

Fabulous movie!

I was so happy I didn't listen to all of the negative reviews which almost stopped me from watching this movie. I thought everything about the movie was great and it was action-packed from beginning to end! I never watch a movie two times in a row but I did with this one!
