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 Movie. Much More Profanity Than Review Indicates.

I love this movie. It's one of my favorite war movies, but it has much more profanity than the rated review from Common Sense Media indicates. I would say it should get 3-4 marks for language, not 2.

This title has:

Too much swearing
age 13+


This is a decent war movie. It's more suitable for older teens and adults because of language and violence. There are better WW2 films out there, this becomes predictable early on.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much swearing
