★ - less sexy than a skid mark
11 February 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Billionaire businessman Christian Grey can't take no for an answer, especially from Anastasia. She's moved on with her life and has a new job, but it doesn't take much to such her back into the darker world. My main problem with the first film was that it had no story, but this time it does. The problem this time is that the story is terrible and badly enacted - from the far-too-easy being drawn back into a relationship, see- it-a-mile-off boss's sexual predatory, hilarious helicopter crash to the consistently unconvincing romance. The vague attempt at exploring Christian's backstory is laughably pointless too.

The second problem, which can't be easily resolved is the casting. Johnson is so drippy, whiny and annoying, Dornan is wooden and dull, both of them lacking depth and personality. Put them together and it feels like a wax museum. Basinger is a great addition to the cast, but she gets absolutely nothing to do.

Johnson said this movie is sexier than the first, but it's still less sexy than a skid mark. The greatest criticism is that there was a lot of laughter during the romantic and dramatic moments, no one can take it even slightly seriously. Foley has taken the wheel, but it's still just a sinking ship - the hole in the hull caused by EL James herself. Let's hope Freed won't be divided into two movies...

1/5
