Carr’s “The World’s End’ Movie Review” Can’t Make Up Its Mind

In response to Kevin Carr’s 703‑word review of The World's End on 7M Pictures

By ,

Kevin Carr’s “The World’s End’ Movie Review” offers two options for readers to choose from but both fail to deliver. The radio review is just audio from the movie followed by an extremely rushed summary of the written review, with no substantial support given while the written review gives away too much without any real direction. Readers would be hard-pressed to find another set of two reviews less deserving of their time.

Carr’s review is a collection of thoughts trying to decipher his overall opinion of the film. Readers must sift through his tendency to go back and forth with what he’s trying to say. In fact, this review is less about giving a balanced review to the reader and more about Carr writing for himself.

There is no consideration with regard to spoilers, as Carr mindlessly tries to sweep his exposure of the film’s main plot twist under the rug and distract readers with his obtuse rhetoric. Readers are subjected to Carr’s lamenting Hot Fuzz and Shaun of the Dead more than once in this piece and it gets real old real quick.

If readers are looking to read the kind of review that can’t make up its mind and fails to move on from one point to the next then they should definitely look no further than Carr’s submission to the field.
