Jackie K. Cooper’s “‘Prisoners’” Is Ho-Hum!

In response to Jackie K. Cooper’s 510‑word review of Prisoners on

By ,

Jackie K. Cooper’s “‘Prisoners’” showcases the clunky language one might find in adolescent essay writing. The reader will immediately notice strange turns of phrases and oddly placed words. Cooper is also quite lax on the correct usage of commas, which provides a rather unnerving reading experience for the grammatically inclined.

This is a ho-hum, boring review that provides less of a reading experience—and more of a tell-it-like-it-is hand-me-down rehash of one guy’s movie experience. The plot synopsis is far less than intense, and Cooper never veers from employing an uncomplicated writing style that is sure to leave some audiences either sleepy or incredibly restless.

The presentation of the review, located just underneath an enormous picture of Cooper’s face, may leave the reader feeling downright assaulted. Cooper’s head is far larger than Hugh Jackman’s face in the Prisoners’ picture chosen for the review, which although absurd, may provide a moment of comic relief for the reading audience.

The end of the review dangles a little piece of hope at the reader with one, and only one, insightful, well-written, and compelling sentence. This review will not linger in the reader’s mind for any artistic merit, spellbinding quality or otherwise creative content, but Cooper’s head might!
