Lee's Review: "Fifty Shades Freed"

Lee's Review:

For anyone who enjoyed previous entries, you'll be glad to know it's more of the same.

Upon the opening of Fifty Shades Freed, the movie series will zoom past the $1 billion mark at the global box office, an impressive showing considering the three films cost a combined $150 million to produce (that doesn't include marketing costs).

Fifty Shades fans have been gifted with the ending to the sadistic love story we've been waiting for ever since Anastasia Steel first went tumbling into Christian Grey's office.

But given time has moved on - and the current sex scandals tearing up Hollywood - cinema-goers may find the dominant S&M scenes involving Christian (Dornan) and his once enslaved lover - now wife - Anastasia (Johnson) a little hard to swallow.

As for Dakota Johnson, she acquits herself fine. Some may love the film, others may hate it, but that's the beauty of Fifty Shades we'll just keep talking about forever. Actually, they're absolutely horrendous.

Lee's Review: "Fifty Shades Freed"

All bad things have to come to an end. Hell, it might even be worse. Ana begins to get accustomed to her new role as taking over Hyde's former position and Christian spends the majority of the film trying to protect Ana from danger. Especially since they're now married. Then he rails against her going topless on the beach, and she learns that he doesn't really want children. His goal is one thing: To make Ana pay for what he believes she has done and give the Grey family reasons to be nervous. I imagine her acquiescence had nothing at all to do with Grey being a gorgeous billionaire with a lifestyle so extravagant and lavish, it makes the Kardashians look like welfare beneficiaries. While the first half has Jamie Dornan singing Elton John softly out of key, the second half has stalled non-conversations over cell phones.

The movie spends most of its time jettisoning its characters from one lovely location to the next. Dark and brooding is all good and well if there's something of substance beneath the mystery. The critical consensus for the film can be seen below. Whenever an actual potential conflict is introduced, like jealousy over a hunky writer or a sexy architect, it's nearly always immediately resolved or forgotten about by the next scene. Here are the most hilarious, savage takes.

All nonsensical plot and character issues aside, Fifty Shades Freed is going to be exactly what fans of the series expect: lovely scenery, quippy banter, frequent sex, and a tiny bit of danger. It's known for its sweet, sweet lovemaking. while in chains.

Critics have totally slammed this movie, and not in a sexy BDSM way.

If you're planning on seeing the movie, you'd better get there on time because these two don't waste any time saying "I do". But there is one catch, Jack is back and out for revenge, though it's not the revenge we think - i.e. wanting Anastasia.
