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 for young children!

My 5 year old daughter watched this and was in love with it! It tells a great story. My 12 year old daughter watched it in class aswell and thought it was a bit violent, but I think it was amazing! 10/10 would recommend. #WAPon

Very well made movie with some minor violence

For starters I think anybody that is 10 and up at least can handle this and for parents who look at the rating being R, that is completely An overeggaration . There is near to no blood due to the action being fast paced, there is one brief scene of Magua, the main antagonist cut out a heart but again, the scene is very breif
