Have you ever seen a movie that was amazing but had no idea how to write a review about it? This blog will help you to understand everything you need to know to complete your first movie review. For this guide, we’ll be reviewing the new blockbuster film, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom.
First things first. You don’t have to write an essay for your review; in fact, anything over 500 words is considered too long for most online publications. Instead, keep it short and sweet with just three or four sentences!
You’ll need to answer the question: Will I recommend this movie?
One of the essential parts of a review is to give readers a summary of the film. Make sure you highlight the main plot points and what you liked or disliked about the movie.
You should also include a star rating and a brief blurb that tells readers why they should see the movie.
And don’t forget to include your own opinion!
First and foremost, you want to include your opinion. Write down whether or not you liked the movie and why.
Second, you want to share your thoughts on writing and directing. Include whether the script was good, if the actors were believable and if the cinematography and sets were effective.
Third, you want to share your opinion on the film’s themes and messages. Were they thought-provoking? Did they resonate with you?
Finally, you want to include your thoughts on the lasting impact of the film. Will it change your life? Will you be telling your friends about it?
It’s essential to give your readers enough information to decide if they should see the movie for themselves!
If you want to write a movie review, here are the basic guidelines for what you need to know:
Only 5 steps to a great movie review!
Let’s say the first sentence should be the general overview of the movie, so you want to write something like, “Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom is a 2018 film about a volcano that threatens to wipe out an entire island.”
The following sentence can be a personal opinion about the movie. In this case, you could write, “The movie was suspenseful and captivating, even though some scenes were a little predictable.”
The third sentence can be a brief takeaway from the film. “Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom is a great summer blockbuster that will keep you on the edge of your seat!”
Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom takes place three years after the events of the first film. Isla Nublar has been abandoned, with all animals residing there either dead or in zoos. One day, the island is rocked by the death of its dormant volcano. As a result, dinosaurs escape and roam freely across the island once again.
Realizing the danger, Claire Dearing creates the Dinosaur Protection Group to save the creatures from extinction. She hires former military man Owen Grady to train her group of specialists in handling these animals. When Claire gets word of a new hybrid species of dinosaur, she leads her team to bring it back alive.
Owen, however, doesn’t want to risk any lives to capture the dinosaur and instead wants to kill it. The two eventually find a middle ground and decide to capture it alive. However, Owen soon realizes that they’ve been tricked and that they’ve been lured into a trap.>>END>>
One of the notable reasons people go to the movies is to see the characters. If you can’t name any of the characters, you probably won’t remember the movie long after it’s over.
We’ll use Jurassic World as an example. The two main characters are Claire Dearing and Owen Grady. Claire is a former Jurassic World operations manager, and Owen is a former member of
That’s all you need! You don’t need to detail what each character does or how they relate to the plot. Keep it short and sweet with your review and
leave the rest for those who want it.
Jurassic World: the Fallen Kingdom is a film with a wide range of emotions. The acting was excellent, but the directing was not. There were moments when the camera was shaky and could have been better.
Overall, Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was a fantastic movie that I would recommend to anyone who loves dinosaurs (and even if you don’t like dinosaurs, it’s still worth watching).
Consider everything you witnessed in the movie and decide how you feel about it. Does any social context accompany the image? What was the initial premise for the picture, and how well did the makers execute it? Take note of how it was shot and the techniques that were employed. For example, in Alfred Hitchcock’s picture Psycho, which he produced and directed, we notice an unusual zoom effect known as vertigo. Consider which performer had the most impact on you and why. Compare and contrast this performance with their previous ones. Discuss the film with your friends or family to develop new ideas to support your point of view or present a contrasting one.
It’s time to settle everything together and write a review now that you’ve done your research and prepared your work. Gather all of your ideas and arguments and stick to the outline you created before.
Make a general synopsis of the film so that readers can see what problems it can cause, but don’t give too much away about the ending because they may not have seen it yet. Make a list of the main points you liked and those you didn’t. Use evidence and examples to back up your claims. Comment on the film’s uniqueness and compare it to other films in the same genre, with similar themes, or directed by the same individual.
