Disturbing scenes and too much violence in the series

Common sense fails!! This series is very interesting but is very violent. I am very sensitive to violence/disturbing images It is not like the other UCM movies They should have rated R this series Parents beware!!! Sensitive people beware. R rated material. I don't mind much about swearing, there is not much, but about disturbing violent imagery

Be careful...Common Sense Media Fail

When it’s good, it’s good. We could have skipped anything disturbing had Common Sense Media fulfilled its purpose. CANNOT BELIEVE Common Sense Media chose to exclude the brutal, cold murders, very concerning, as well as two scenes, one disturbing and twisted, and the other one could be confusing. One scene shows the friendship between two young girls in an orphanage, looking out for one another. However, it quickly reveals to be a type of fighting/training school where the same two girls that we just watched bond and care for one another, brutally beat each other. At the head nod of the school mistress, the little girl snaps the other little girl’s neck. It added no value and has stolen from the story and entire experience. CSM failed the audience on this. In what can be confusing, and completely unnecessary, another scene shows one woman grabbing another woman and holding her as she kisses her on the mouth. If we would have known about the little girl’s head snapping, we could have at least skipped that part. Why willfully neglect the exact screening that brought us to this site in the first place? Common Sense Media major fail.
