The general vibe of Erick Weber’s words are off-putting and annoying in “Final Cut Call: Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2.”

Readers will be impressed by the excellent writing skills and construction, however some will be alarmed by the negative tone of the Weber.

Final Cut Call doesn’t come across as an angry fan boy’s perspective, not at all, however there is a tinge of nastiness that makes one question the intentions of the critic. As a result, the simultaneous attack on humor and attempt at humor by the critic himself, falls flat.

To the credit of Final Cut Call, the opening statements are clear and express a strong opinion for the reader. However, the open is discredited by the critic’s description of the lead character as a “wussy”, which seems odd for an animated film.

Perhaps the biggest flaw of Final Cut Call, is Weber’s failure to address the positive and negative effect the film will have on children. Instead, Weber appears to be intent on a takedown, rather than a composed and comprehensive offering to the reader.

Final Cut Call is well-written and has a visually rich presentation, however the negative vibe of the critic is not pleasing, and the snark is annoying rather than comedic.
