Fellow movie-goers: While the FIFTY SHADES films showed S & M could be romantic, the newest shows that suspense can be boring.
Open Date: 2/09/2018Movie URL: www.fiftyshadesmovie.comDirector: James FoleyCast: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan, Eric Johnson Rating: Rated R for strong sexual content, nudity, and language.
Here’s the premise: Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian and Ana fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins.
I will be the first to admit, I do not get the attraction to these films, but the romance aspect has always been pretty steamy. The romance in the latest film is pretty good as well, but the suspense is very much lacking. The beginning was intriguing but quickly was muffled, and the climatic ending to the ordeal was over much too soon and with a whimper rather than a bang.
The acting was mediocre, as was the dialogue, and the romance was not enough to keep me interested in the film so I cannot really recommend this installment of FIFTY SHADES.
