Eric Kohn’s astonishing composition, “The World’s End,” is a perfect example of what the modern lover of cinema reviews needs today.

This is a powerhouse performance that is vast, engaging, thought-provoking, and essential. The prose of Kohn is far superior to his counterparts, and he sets himself apart from the common reviewer who only wishes to touch the new bar set by the masterly critic.

The superb first three paragraphs dive into the history of the trilogy, and explore themes with crisp and concise words. The language that is employed is significantly smarter than your typical review, and investigates the background of the film with potent brevity.

Halfway through, Kohn takes the time to introduce key plot points and addresses the tactics used by the director to set the pace and tone. The established context makes way for Kohn’s keen exploration of the main twist, and why he believes it to be out of place.  

“The Worlds End” by Eric Kohn is like a long Italian five-course dinner. Each serving is spectacular and prepared with thought and intellect by the chef. One may find themselves full by the end, but it is a good feeling, and you can walk away knowing that the experience was memorable and worthwhile.
