Scream 4 Reviews
On the downside, sometimes Scream 4 feels too parody-like and artificial. It's hard to tell when Scream 4 is being meta because it's so meta that it makes fun of being meta. It will occasionally confuse the viewer, maybe even to the point where Scream 4 doesn't even feel watchable, depending on the type of person you are that is.
All in all, Scream 4 is a successful reboot that cleverly combats its decayed premise by making fun of its own premise, which can understandably feel a bit too confusing for some viewers.
Not as good as the first, but it's better than the 3rd one
However, the downside of its many genres though, is that some of its viewers will, understandably, not perceive how or when "Scream 4" is trying to incorporate one of its many genres into itself. So, this can inevitably cause any ignorant viewer to somewhat misunderstand the film, and because of that, "Scream 4" would be called a "perfect film" due to the fact that it has so many genres, hence it has many ways to be positively interpreted.
In all, "Scream 4" is original, entertaining, well directed, mostly well written, mostly well acted, and is solely based upon a bold provocative about how social media and fame can greatly affect people. But, the film does suffer from a lack of coherency, some shoddy character dialogue, and one or two underwhelming performances.
