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.

Like it says, "nerve shredding"

It is very gory, but I am 13 and watched it by myself and I was alright with it. A couple of the scenes made me cringe, but I am good with blood, and knowing of kids of 2018, it should be what they are used to be seeing, so I think they can handle it like me. NOT IF THEY ARE SENSITIVE.

This title has:

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

Disappointing.

The last 25 minutes or so are incredibly suspenseful, but the majority of the movie is dull, with nothing ever happening. I relly wish that more of the movie was like the last 25 minutes. Really, most of the film is devoid of anything.

Too much violence
Too much sex
