Any moral criticism on the story behind the movie, while actually valid, should not be addressed against the movie, but rather against the book.
I am scoring the movie a 10, but I do admit that various element of the story are in visible contrast with principles purported by other movement like the "MeToo" movement.
Even in this conditions, one should not judge the work only on the basis of morality.
Look folks, this is a guilty pleasure type of movie nothing more nothing less, it's an easy target and nothing about it is believable or realistic, and what does it matter. Do you go watch Super-Hero-Movie #4000 for its oh-so realistic depiction of daily life? Don't think so buddy. So why hold this movie to randomly high standards instead of taking it for the silly fantasy that it is. At the end of the day the acting is good and the actors can make you care about the characters, and if you're into this sort of thing you can have a good time or even laugh at the absurdity of it all, or both why not.
There are a lot of negative things to be said about Fifty Shades Darker. But it does impress in one sense: The erotica lite sequel somehow manages to be worse than the stupefyingly bad "Fifty Shades of Grey."
Loved it. I believe this movie took on different turns which made it interesting. Maybe the first love scene was a little too much of jumping in the fire but sometimes feelings are over the top. I loved it.
After watching Fifty Shades Darker, I was super-confused! 'cause it was better than Fifty Shades of Grey in somethings, and worse than it in somethings.
Things that was really better than the first one are:
It was really emotional, and romantic.
The performance was better than the first one.
The story was more powerful, but sometimes it made no sense, and it takes us to the things that were worse than the first one:
The story sometimes made no sense. Like how Leila was really a slave to Christian?
And how did she enter the apartment?
A lot of nonsense **** happened!
Things I did not like in this movie are:
Somehow the sex scenes were not erotic, and I hated that!
It took everything in the novel without thinking.
And the Unrated version was useless!
But I liked it though!
The next fifty shades between an ordinary woman and a billionaire.
The film was not received well as the book was. Just like the first film, it has been another below average. Might be because of its theme. Usually this kind of films do great business, but ratings and reviews does not praise or encourage the film. So I doubt anybody will be bored of it, which means watchable film and instead it won't be their favourite.
The story continued and this time it was not based on experiment or any kind of agreement, but mutual understanding. So the billionaire Grey and Ana's erotic adventure sustains. With the small-small developments the film goes all the way to the ending. That means, those who are watching it for the selected scenes, will surely would have a nice time. But nothing was strong as any European film on the similar theme.
Apart from the weak storyline, there's nothing wrong with it. As to what this film is about, it served better. That's what I say to you not to expect full storied romance-drama. As usual the actors were good and another two films to come in the 'Fifty Shades' franchise. I hope they can be better than the first two. Overall, it is only for the selected audience, but curiosity makes everybody watch it and they all pour they perspective which is flooded with average to negative. Otherwise, it is an acceptable film.
"Fifty Shades Darker" was a horrible movie. The protagonists doing their usual things, the boring story and its forced change, of sure and no one is interested in this erotic sequel and the pure morbid it causes.
