  1. 1. FILM REVIEW Golden Rule THERE IS NO UNIVERSAL RULE OR FORMULA FOR FILM REVIEW Writing Plan A film can be viewed by everyone but the good review can generate only by serious film watching and understanding its inner meanings and thoughts. A good review can be written in paragraphs. Paragraph 1 You will need to include the following: name of the film, prominent stars of the film, basic plot), and type of film (Genre) and also can give one word verdict for skim readers. Paragraph 2 You will need to write a plot summary for the movie. Do not reveal the ending. Discuss prominent events and be sure to cover the entire span of the movie, except the climax. Reviews never should spoil the suspense. Paragraph 3 Discuss aspects of filmmaking. You may choose from acting, direction, editing, and costume design, set design, photography, background music, or anything else you may think of. Be sure that you are specific and cite examples from the movie. Paragraph 4 Stars are vehicle for movie. So there must be a good review on them. It should not limit on his/her acting but socio- cultural influences created by their character or star through this film. Paragraph 5 Give your overall reaction to the film as well as your opinion on the quality of the film. Also include your recommendations for potential viewers. Also try a rating system by give mark or star.
