Tips for Writing a Film Review - Guide 2021


A review can be a lot of fun, but it takes more than just stating your opinion. When you review a film, you should provide the reader with information that will help them decide whether or not they want to see the movie. Here are some tips for writing reviews from Dissertation Writing Services article:







Describe what happens in the movie without giving away your plot summary (see "Plot Summaries" on page 8). Show how the story unfolds by describing individual scenes and using vivid details. Breathe life into your description by including dialogue between characters so that the reader becomes part of the action.

Give your opinion about the quality of acting or other aspects of production—but make sure that this is an objective view rather than a personal one.

Be sure to mention the title of the movie and the name of its director at least once in your review. You can also include a few key actors' names in parentheses after their character's name when you are describing them on-screen. If there is an official website for a film, this should be included as part of its "film facts" (see below).

Describe how the story comes together through special effects, music, and editing.

Here is my review of Ocean's Twelve from thesis writing service article. I'm not going to give away everything that happens, but I will tell you about some funny scenes and interesting characters. There are lots of details to help paint a picture so that you have a clear idea of what the movie is about.



Ocean's Twelve (Warner Bros.) takes place in Europe after a group of thieves has robbed three casinos and left Las Vegas. Danny Ocean (George Clooney) has been set up by Terry Benedict (Andy Garcia), owner of the casinos, so that he can't go back to his old lifestyle. So, he decides to split up with Rusty Ryan (Brad Pitt) and others who helped him with his plan and then try to get revenge on Benedict. 



He wants to rob one more time before leaving for good—the museum where Benedict is showing off paintings from an exhibition that will become his next big casino project. With help from new friend Isabel Lahiri (Catherine Zeta-Jones), once a con artist, he gets in the museum for a sneak preview. 



Benedict comes in and they have an argument that leads to Ocean getting into a fight with him. As the art enthusiasts are running out of the room where the paintings are hanging, Rusty breaks into them. He takes one off the wall and hands it to Isabel as she runs by. She holds it up quickly so that no one can see its back but makes sure her boyfriend (Don Cheadle) can take photos with his digital camera—photos that will be hidden on their website for later proof when they need it. He then hides several other paintings before going to help Danny get away from security guards and police who have come after them!
