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.

Surprise at language

I was surprise they said no language and Sam Elliot let's out a G#[email protected]#$m. This is offensive to me and my family.

Boring, but fine for the teenagers obsessed with Marvel

Not a good movie, except for seeing Nick Nolte in his full glory. I mean come on, that's the real win here for humanity, basically Nolte playing himself on screen... very entertaining. OK, that aside, again... not a good movie, but language is not nearly as bad as most movies teens want to watch in 2020, and there is no sex neither sexual content. Yes, there is an exposed male backside for a few seconds, but it is in no way sexual. There's hardly even romance, let alone inappropriate content. Very violent, no real redeeming messages to speak of... Oh and there's no real plot either, but hey... we covered that right? I think I may prefer to share with my kids the old Hulk TV shows instead of this, more entertaining... Just remember... Nick Nolte. Totally worth it, unless you can watch any other movie, then you should do that...
