Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say Not yet rated
Kids say (1):

Found footage series and movies offer the viewer an immersive experience. Dealer puts its viewers in the middle of a drug war that neither they, nor their proxy characters, asked to be in. Unfortunately, the first-person point-of-view -- along with the English overdubbing and abbreviated runtime -- make Dealer feel more like a series of video game cut scenes, rather than a viable action show.

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.
