Wow what a disappointment !! I personally loved the books ,i saw theback story behind all the sex of a broken man finding and learning tolove really beautiful. The movie , well there are so many things wrongwith it starting with the cinematography ,it's just all too perfectHollywood and not enough rawness and realness to it and i hate it .Nextis the cast i mean i love Jamie Dornan and Dakota is OK but they wereso not right for this movie!No chemistry or heat between them and verywooden analytical acting.Jamie Dornan in The Fall was awesome by theway i am not a hater.Other cast also was wrong from Elana to Mia and soon.The movie also seems very rushed ,I know it is an adaptation of thebook but not done smoothly in my opinion , It makes me really sad asthese movies could have been great if only they had gotten it right,Take a page out of "Nick Cassavetes" book because he directed TheNotebook perfectly.

I sat through the last half of 50 shades darker today because my sisterwas using my Macbook to watch it... Let me sum it up for you:
Him: "I'm not good with people because I'm mysterious."
Her: "I like mysterious, but I'm scared cause I'm fragile."
Him: "Don't be afraid, I'm the one who is afraid... of hurting you."
*Have Some Sex*
Her: "You're so thoughtful, maybe I misjudged you. Now I want to behurt... just not emotionally."
Him: "I always hurt people, but I would never hurt you... unless youwanted me to."
Her: "Ouch, you hurt me. Now my feelings are hurt and I'm sad and mywhole life hurts."
Him: "I'm sorry if I hurt you. I'll try harder, but I don't think I'llever change.'
Her: "I'm gonna pretend like I didn't hear that, but please don't hurtme again. I trust you to change for me- projects are fun."
Him: "Put these things in your ass."
Her: "No." Him: "Okay, I'm not good with people because I'mmysterious."

Billionaire businessman Christian Grey can't take no for an answer,especially from Anastasia. She's moved on with her life and has a newjob, but it doesn't take much to such her back into the darker world.My main problem with the first film was that it had no story, but thistime it does. The problem this time is that the story is terrible andbadly enacted - from the far-too-easy being drawn back into arelationship, see- it-a-mile-off boss's sexual predatory, hilarioushelicopter crash to the consistently unconvincing romance. The vagueattempt at exploring Christian's backstory is laughably pointless too.
The second problem, which can't be easily resolved is the casting.Johnson is so drippy, whiny and annoying, Dornan is wooden and dull,both of them lacking depth and personality. Put them together and itfeels like a wax museum. Basinger is a great addition to the cast, butshe gets absolutely nothing to do.
Johnson said this movie is sexier than the first, but it's still lesssexy than a skid mark. The greatest criticism is that there was a lotof laughter during the romantic and dramatic moments, no one can takeit even slightly seriously. Foley has taken the wheel, but it's stilljust a sinking ship - the hole in the hull caused by EL James herself.Let's hope Freed won't be divided into two movies...
Christian and Ana decide to rekindle their relationship, except this time there are no more rules or punishments. As they begin to get used to their newfound relationship, Christian's past begins to haunt Ana as Christian struggles with his innermost thoughts.
