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.

Thankful for Common Sense Media!

I am so thankful for Common Sense Media and other parents taking time to write reviews! I checked this movie out from my library and then decided I should look it up. Most of the reviews said it was all right, but I read one about two cops turning into crows and attacking a boy. I decided to preview this on the movie. I only watched this one part it was about two minutes but it was scary! Granted I don't like scary movies at all, but their eyes turned black and their teeth grew and their hands changed into claws. I think it would have given my 10 and 11 year old nightmares. I didn't watch the rest of the movie but if your kids get scared easily don't watch this movie.
not rated for age
