a review of/for

I know that it is correct to say "a review of a new musical". Is it also correct to say "a review for a new musical"?

The point is that I came across "There are mostly five-star reviews for the product on Amazon" in


  • @helenmai, I think the point of the Amazon usage it that the reviewer is awarding stars for the product.

    A review of a musical is not generally seen as an award.
    However I think most people would accept

    There were rave reviews for the new musical.

    In this context, the meaning of review has shifted to 'good or bad assessment'.
