Did we miss something on diversity?

Don't understand other reviews

Ok. I saw some reviews that said this is more like PG 13 quality because there wasn't a lot of adult content. So I proceeded to watch it with my 9 yr old. No there isn't a lot but what is there is not suitable for children. For example a man gets decapitated and its geaphic...so regret letting my son watch..its not suitable for children..adults fine. I picked to much violence..its not not but considering children. Any is to much!

This title has:

Too much violence

Terrible remake has nothing special.

The Oman is very bland. The deaths are predictable.
