'Fifty Shades Darker': What the Critics Are Saying

'Fifty Shades Darker': What the Critics Are Saying

First, it's already weird enough that he would have Ana draw on him with makeup (they didn't have any markers around the house?), but the most cringeworthy part is his reaction.

Vanity Fair had this to say: "You won't believe just how dumb the dialogue is in Fifty Shades Darker, and, yes, that's even if you've seen the first one". Newsday archly noted: "For a woman like Anastasia, there's only one real enemy, of course: another woman." Variety: "The new film has lost its predecessor's feminine perspective".

"I think if those people were to see the film they would see that Anastasia is an incredibly empowered young woman and everything she does is of her own volition", Johnson told the Press Association. What little plot there is resolves quickly and easily, but then the film keeps going, until you begin to understand what it feels like to be punished by a self-described sadist like Christian Grey.

Meanwhile, a sweaty-looking guy scowls in the shadows - Ana's spurned and evil boss, who has the extremely subtle name of Mr. Hyde - and one of Christian's former "subs" (submissives, not sandwiches) lurks around Ana's apartment looking like a "Twilight" extra. "For years my husband and I struggled to conceive a baby, we tried IVF and everything but after your movie came out we made a baby naturally". Several scenes are set in Christian Grey's childhood bedroom, where a poster for The Chronicles of Riddick hangs prominently on one wall, lending a surreal air to the moment where our hero pours his heart out to Ana while Vin Diesel looms just out of focus over his shoulder.

This comes after the Fifty Shades Darker cast has reportedly been banned from being "overtly sexual" on social media and interviews. She is accusing her of not really caring for Christian Grey (played by Jamie Dornan).

Now, let's be clear: the movie has received plenty of poor reviews. At first, Ana will not want to stay in Christian's apartment.

Again, this isn't surprising. "I thought, 'How dare you, ' but she's a very smart actress". Those scenes reveal the potential this movie had to be something female viewers could both enjoy and respect, not view as a "guilty pleasure" that's fun to watch but entirely problematic.

At the beginning of the film, the conflicted couple are still separated (Steele left her lover at the end of the first flick), though it doesn't take long for Johnson-as-Steele to take her billionaire boyfriend back.
