If you edit your review, you will find you can say the same thing using half the amount of words. Word counts aren't the only criteria to work with. The Flesch reading ease statistics are a good indicator of how your work reads, and you should aim for 60%-70%, which will give you a Kincaid grade level of at least 6.7 - age group of 13 to adult. If you use Microsoft Word you can turn the readability statistics on in Spell Check. Those percentages are for general readership. A different criteria will apply for the more technical or academic article. It's a very useful tool.
PS. You should check sentences as well as paragraphs with this tool to keep on track. Hope this helps.
