Provide a good opinion about the movie and give your rating as soon as possible, be consistent on it and spend the rest of the time proving your point to the readers, also make sure your point is clear and consistent, don’t confuse them with sugar coated words, be honest and frank but use words wisely with professionalism. Prove your point and try to persuade your readers that what you are saying is true.
- Give highlight to your rating. Starting your rating should be done as your personal opinion, but it also has to be highlighted with real evidence. For example, you say the movie was bad and you have it, don’t leave it like that. Give a general reason why and try to provide some scenes that prove your opinion which will entirely support your rating.
- Analyze the plot but don’t reveal it entirely. Try to do some brief hint of the plot but make sure you leave some things still unexpected especially when stating a scene, you don’t have to entirely narrate what happened, and you just have to let the people know that such scene exists.

Your review must help them decide, so try to give a great ending to your review and try to persuade them whether to watch or not, and remember to take your rating into account in telling them what to do.
