The third and final part of the trilogy “Fifty Shades of Grey” has been released this Valentine’s day. As it was a much-awaited movie, it doesn’t end with the bang that people were looking for. However, the best-selling E.L. James trilogy didn’t disappoint its fans in terms of drama.
If you are the kind of adult who doesn’t want to watch Marvel movies, you can go and watch the final part of the trilogy. It exactly gives fans what they came for:
more visits to the “playroom” for some lightweight sadomasochism, more eye-rolling plot mechanics involving Christian Grey’s troubled past, more reactionary views on love and marriage, more money shots of sports cars, private jets and vacation homes that only the 1 percent can afford and more attempts to turn what may be one of the duller couples to ever grace the screen into two captivating characters. For good measure, the filmmakers also toss in a butt plug.
Given that the Fifty Shades flicks have so far grossed nearly $1 billion worldwide, the answer seems to be yes. This installment should likewise draw a good crowd, although perhaps less than the other two films as viewers begin to grow tired of the same old bedroom routine.
Fifty Shades Freed begins with the couple’s glorious wedding, followed by a honeymoon that includes stops in Paris and the Cote d’Azur. At one point during the trip, Christian gets a little rattled because Ana wants to go topless on the beach, but that dispute is quickly resolved when he whisks her back to his giant yacht and takes out a pair of handcuffs and the story goes on.
However, Dakota has been good throughout the movie with sexy looks and a good sense of humor. On the other hand, Dornan is such a bore that Dornan seems to be doubling down on the stiffness and gives his line readings like he’s reciting from a teleprompter. For a man who can buy anything he wants, including the woman of his dreams, Grey should maybe try investing in a personality.
In short, the movie is good to watch for fun but it is disappointing for the fans, too. As there are many scenes which don’t make any sense for the story. Watch it and decide for yourself whether you like it or not.
