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.

For 13 and Over, but....

definitely not worth subjecting your children to the gratuitous violence in this tedious, overwrought, unnecessarily drawn out film. The pacing is dreadful, the dialogue uninspired and the odious plot neither clever nor fresh. As a matter of fact, there is NOTHING -- I mean NOTHING -- here that hasn't already been done to death AND more effectively. (Clearly Kyra Sedgewick appears as a favor to someone important.)

Well acted satirical thriller

The cast makes Villains worth watching, Kyra Sedgwick in particular. This cast perfectly executes their roles and it lifts up the entire film. It’s short and it’s not groundbreaking by any means but it’s a satisfying watch.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
