The aim of this thesis is to elaborate a set of stylistic characteristics of the review as a text variety (Textsorte) and so create the basis for an analysis of selected examples of film reviews published in the Internet magazine of "Sputnik", the MDR Youth Radio Station. An introductory description of the text corpus, a survey of the current state of research on text variety/text typology (Textsorte/Texttypologie), text-variety style (Textsortenstil) and the review as a text variety is followed, in the second chapter, by a characterization and working definition of the term 'review'. The analytical apparatus required for a description of the style of the review text variety is then elaborated. This provides the groundwork for the analysis of film reviews, a largely unresearched subset of reviews. The final part of this section is devoted to an illustration of trans-sentential stylistic effects on the basis of two specimen film reviews.
