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.

Terrible story about a boy who grows up keeping a secret two man-slaughters that he committed, one which was self-defence and the other which was an accident. There you go, from that alone you can see not to bother with this terribly acted (Yep, by Tatum), boring, and messy cop drama. Anybody underage that wants to watch this should be more aware of how bored they will be more than what bad it's doing to themselves.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
