“Fifty Shades Darker” Review: Exhausting and Mind-Numbing


p style=”text-align:center;”>FIFTY SHADES DARKER (2017) Review
Directed by James Foley

Being unrealistic from story to dialogues, Fifty Shades Darker is almost unbearable. Not only that the film is a fantasized fairy tale of a grown woman, everything the film wants to present doesn’t make a good story. Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson always end up having intense conversations you just want to shout to them, “Get a room already!”

The film isn’t normal, maybe it does turn on some of those who wants romance, but Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey makes romance boring. You have to wait for more than an hour for the story to move forward, and twenty minutes after, the story introduces and ends another problem. It’s exhausting and frustrating to follow a story that doesn’t want to be told decently.

The first one was watchable, as the story introduces the characters in their getting-to-know each other stage. It was a bit fun and gives you an insight of an interesting behavior among rare people, but it was still bad. This sequel, turned bad into worse. It’s like the Transformers: Age of Extinction in the Transformers franchise where in you think you should feel at least excitement but there’s none.




“Fifty Shades Darker” is now showing in cinemas nationwide from United International Pictures, distributed through Columbia Pictures. Rated R-18 (UNCUT) by the MTRCB.
