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.

Great clean action movie

This is the reality of who and what we are fighting in the middle east. Two out of five stars... come on now. Not only is this a good clean action movie, but it does a good job showing the resolve of our enemies, and thus the resolve with which we must face them. Just because a movie is violent doesn't mean you need to give low ratings

Powerful, Violent Mystery-Thriller in Middle East.

This was a very good film. The performances were superb and the direction very well done. It can get confusing at times, but overall, the story seems fairly clear. The action sequences are rough but I have seen much more graphic violence elsewhere.

Too much violence
Too much swearing
