Rafer Guzman’s “Cloudy 2” Review Is Stern and Stingy

In response to Rafer Guzman’s 397‑word review of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2 on Newsday

By ,

Rafer Guzman shakes a waving finger in “Cloudy With a Chance of Meatballs 2’ review: No food for thought”, but fails to expand on what exactly went wrong.

Review: Cloudy 2 opens with a concise summary about the original  film, but there is a startling absence of one true statement to hook the reader. The writing technique used by Guzman can be effective, but only if followed up by appropriate words that can grab the attention of the audience. Sadly, the critic does little to accomplish this feat.

The middle section of Review: Cloudy 2 is so lean and unsubstantial, that one has to wonder if the lack of content is an intentional ploy to counter the abundance of meat in the film. Only Guzman knows for sure, but the reality is that the critic’s followers expect the best, and the light meal that is served is hardly enough to satisfy the enormous appetite of the reader.

Review: Cloudy 2 closes out with vague statements on the plot and dialogue, and teases the reader with a weak character analysis. One has to scratch their head by the conclusion and wonder why the effort was made to continue on.  

Rafer Guzman tragically disappoints with Review: Cloudy 2.
