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.

Before criticisms

This is an action adventure movie it is meant for everyone who love action and adventure movie so parents complaining that is not good for kids should not let your children watch it if you're not comfortable with it there's no need in them downloading it and letting their children will watch it I also have children but that doesn't mean I'm not going to enjoy myself I have TV for children I let them watch I have my mobile to enjoy my alonetime with my husband I downloaded it and it was ok I love adventure action movie so there's no need for parents to complain about the movie because it's something worth watching so if you think is not for childrens don't let your children watch it don't criticize the movie me personally I love it stop criticizing others people work and let those who will watch enjoy it is not a movie based on religion so there's nothing about this movie and to the directors and actors you all did well so kudos to all those who took part in the movie and made it a success love you guys
