Love Is For Never is a British film about a man, discovering his wife and/or girlfriend has been cheating on him, who becomes psychotic, putting the lives of everyone around him in danger.
Firstly, great title. The film may be as insane as anything, but a decent title can go a long way, and this one really evokes the romantic but dark spirit of the film itself (probably).
The rest of the film was also a lot of fun. Whether it may have been overly gruesome or overly violent for a romance, I don’t know, however it did have a lot of fast-paced and exciting sequences, coupled with a horrifically sappy romance that made it fine for anyone to watch.
In terms of the performances, they were pretty strong all round. While Phoebe Workman may have died a bit too quickly, and Naomi Wilkinson and Brooke Gerrie’s fighting was somewhat feeble, they provided a good deal of farce within the middle of the story.
Tarek Mokhtar, on the other hand, was just a bit too violent, but that showed his pure passion for the woman he loved, who was so brutally murdered by the absolutely petrifying Shahbaz Hussain, who I would not ever double-cross again if I were you.
Overall, then, this gets a pretty solid 8.4.
