What If Reviews
What If isn't particularly memorable; this isn't a film that'll stay with you long after you've left the cinema. But it's a pleasing enough watch with plenty charming moments. You'll even forgive the predictable plotting because the actors steal your heart. Give it a chance, you won't regret it.
A fairly enjoyable way to pass an otherwise free afternoon, What If attempts to be different from the rest in the genre but fails to leave a mark.
Delightful but somewhat un-memorable, the energy of the film lies in the push-pull conflict between the two protagonists handled deftly by Radcliffe and Kazan - the whole question of love that cannot be...and hoping against all odds that it can.
The film also piles on cliché after cliché, making the happy ending painfully predictable. Director Michael Dowse has made great films in the past and he does his best to bring Elan Mastai’s terrible script to life. But there’s only so much that one can do with a mediocre plot and unlikable characters.
A film for all those who are simply in love with the idea of love. Whether you're a romantic or a cynic, this will leave you with a smile.
