aikugur disagreed with the rating and said:
When Miss Peregrine and Miss Avocet talk about the attack... they talk about an attack lead by a man. Maybe they don't name it, but the whole conversation is about how dangerous is Mr. Barron.

Mr. Barron wasn't the only one attacking, and the attackers aren't all men.

@aikugur, by that logic, any movie about any war in recent history will fail, since they were all "lead [sic] by a man."

There is also the scene where Miss Peregrine asks Fiona to get a carrot for dinner, Fiona asks how many, and Miss Peregrine says just one.
