Wattpad story as a film...

I honestly don't know what I was expecting from the synopsis given. I saw the trailer on iqiyi and thought it was going to be a steamy romantic love-hate relationship film and it simply didn't deliver. There were a lot of directional and script-writing decisions that were terrible and I felt bad for the cast to have to act them out. I have no idea if the main actors themselves are bad or if the script being bad made them seem terrible. The major issue is that the hate in love-hate is so overdone and aggressive that the female lead looks so dumb for still loving him. This is worsened by the fact that it's framed as sexy. It was not at all and I also blame the director for this. The director decided at some point that in every scene the male lead must corner, grab, and be five centimeters from the female lead's face in order for the scene to be interesting. However, when there's no sexual tension/chemistry between the leads and it's obvious they aren't going to kiss it's pointless and weird to do it so often. It is obviously done to make up for the lack of quality of the script and to keep viewers watching. I could go on and on which my issues with the plot but I think this is enough for anyone interested to get the jist. I wouldn't recommend this film, even if you're just looking for a quick something to watch. It was not good.
