The process of writing a movie review is similar to the process of writing a book review. A movie review should be informative and persuasive at the same time. Below are simple steps on how to write a movie review.

Step One: Choose a movie.

The first step would be to choose a movie that you want to review. You can write a movie review for any kind of movie that you prefer.

Step Two: Know the basic details of the movie.

Make some research about the basic information of the movie such as the genre, director of the movie, the cast, the setting, as well as the awards that the movie won.

Step Three: Watch the movie and take notes.

To write a good movie review, it is important that you watch and fully understand the concepts and ideas presented in the movie. You might forget about some details so it is recommended that you take notes while watching the movie.

Step Four: Write the introduction.

You have to start by writing about the basic details and a very short summary of the movie. It is important to include a short summary so the people who have not watched the movie yet will know what the movie is basically about.

Step Five: Write the body of your review.

In this step, you will have to share your thoughts and comments about the movie. You should judge the movie by its storyline, how the script is written, the acting of the cast, how the movie is directed, the editing, background music, background and costume designs, as well as the animations (if there are any). Give your constructive criticisms and explain your thoughts clearly. Also try to determine and discuss the exact scenes that may support your statements.  Aside from that, you can also agree or disagree with the ideas that the movie is trying to impart to the audience and elaborate on that.

Step Six: Write the closing paragraph.

Your conclusion should include your overall evaluation of the movie. I have mentioned that a movie review should be informative and persuasive at the same time, so in this paragraph, you should also state whether this movie is worth watching or is just a waste of time. 

Step Seven: Refine your work.

After writing your movie review, it is advisable that you read it again from start to finish and do the necessary editing.

Finally…

The process of writing a movie review is an easy task if you just follow the simple steps listed on this article on how to write a movie review.
