The Good: The on-screen chemistry between Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) and Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steele) really seemed to work well. Grey seemed to maintain a certain level of mystery from beginning to end that manages to keep your interest. You just can't help but wonder, "What is going on with this guy?" or "What is he really hiding?". I think fans will appreciate Christian dropping his famous farewell line too. On the flip side, Anastasia shows a nice sequence of maturity and growth in her character development. Of course, the biggest highlight of this film are the erotic, sex scenes. Thankfully, the scenes were done in a very tasteful manner, and not made out to be a hardcore porn that sensational hype makes it seem. FInally, I thought that they ended the film perfectly.
The Bad: N/A
The Reason: The reason why there isn't a "BAD" listed is because it was hard for me to find anything really bad at all. The only thing I could suspect as being bad would be if they deviated from the books. Granted, I have not read the books which allow me to judge the movie on its own merit. But if I had to guess, I would say that this probably stayed true to the book and its content. I already know that fans of the books aren't going to need this review to go watch the film, so right now I'm talking to those who haven't read the books. After hearing all the hype, I can certainly understand the excitement of the fans. So don't be shy, go see this for Valentine's day, or any other date-night. When the film is over, there's definitely plenty of material to talk about. It's well worth the watch in the theaters. Call me crazy, but I have the sneaky feeling that a few stores may run out of batteries this weekend. Lol
The Rating: 9/10
