Verdict on Love at First Sight
Love at First Sight is a romantic comedy following two strangers who meet on a plane trip to London. They come from different worlds and are travelling for different reasons but find an unlikely connection on their journey. It follows the two as they wonder what could happen in London and afterwards.
This is one of the most generic bland romantic comedies you will ever see. The dialogue between Hadley and Oliver is painfully unrealistic with the narrator popping up in Hadley’s life is too on the chin. However, despite the complaints, the reason for the travelling is excellent. Along with the highlight of most rom-coms, the supporting cast brings the story to life in the second half of the movie. Sadly, Haley Lu Richardson and Ben Hardy don’t have any real chemistry which holds the movie back from the love impact it truly wants to give us.
Where to Watch: Love at First Sight is available to watch on Netflix now.
Final Thoughts –Love at First Sight is a painfully generic romantic comedy.
