Highlights

Lia and Brianna’s Relationship

“Love Kills” is a sex sells type of film, and the chemistry between Lia and Brianna is the selling point. For even beyond the sex scenes, there is something cute and playful about them.

Add in the complications of their relationship due to both having close relationships with potentially jealous men and while I wouldn’t say the chemistry compensates for a rather dry story, it gives you something to hold onto.

On The Fence

Getting Invested Into The Story

The main issue with “Love Kills” is that it lacks a notable hook. Lia is a submissive character who doesn’t bring anything to the film to maintain your attention and while Brianna has a story to tell and a past that makes her sound interesting, she isn’t.

After a certain point, “Love Kills” becomes the type of film that leans on sex and violence in an attempt to keep you engaged, but as that loses its luster, the film loses you.
