There's plenty of room for Improvement

As a fan of the books and a critic of the movies, I didn't hate it but I wouldn't say it's good either. The soundtrack, as always, was beautiful and really helped carry the movie where there were many areas in which it was lacking. The relationship, although more romantic than usual (screen portrayal wise), still felt like it was not enough to mask the lack of sensual and romantic chemistry. The actors quoted that a lot of these scenes felt very mechanically instrumental. It replicated just that and no manner of music or extra attempts to hide it worked to cover it. Although there is much storyline to cover in this story, transitions sucked. The whole movie felt like cut and paste. No scenes glided together to form beautiful picture into the next. If transitions were painted out beautifully, this movie would not only be more easy to follow but more likely to be liked.

Just walked out of the movie & I Absolutely LOVED Fifty Shades Darker!! It was phenomenal!! Jamie & Dakota's chemistry was insane & Christian is so hot????. The plot is wonderful; you will laugh; cry; and wish that you had your own Christian Grey. I definitely give this movie 5 stars & will be seeing it again. I cannot wait until Valentine's Day next year to see Fifty Shades Freed!!

Sexy Love Story

The movie is amazing. The Chemistry between Jamie Dornan & Dakota Johnson really brought the characters of Christian & Ana to life. I felt Darker was better than FSOG. James Foley as the new Director really brought a warmer feel to the movie. Really showed us how much these two will do anything to be together. A major Thank You to Screenwriter Niall Leonard (E.L. James husband) he made sure to stick closer to the book and we got pretty much all the major favorite scenes in. I intend to see it again. Once was not enough.

This movie could have been directed and edited to make it a descent movie. No, it's horrible. Yes I read the books and of course it can be difficult to translate a book I to screen. But for the love of the higher powers this movie is just horrible. I new it wasn't going to be great but I went to see it with my girlfriends to have no. What happens, just a butchered movie. Please please just someone remake the movie.

Thought that the story and acting would improve in the sequel. That was not the case. Save yourself the time and money on this movie.
