FIFTY SHADES OF GREY (2015): There Is Something I Liked…

Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan star in Fifty Shades Of Grey, the Sam Taylor Johnson directed film adaptation of E.L. James’ best selling book of the same name.

There has been plenty of well publicised negative feedback about the quality of writing in the book and subsequently, the film. Yet, all that seems to have caused minimal damage to the movie’s overall commercial success. 

Clearly the story of the masochistic relationship between a university student (Anastasia Steele) and a handsome, rich businessman (Christian Grey) is just too appealing. Thanks to some rather steamy content and a definitely mysterious Mr. Grey; a man audiences can’t help but be desperate to understand.

For me, there are no particularly stellar performances in the film. I remember laughter escaping my lips in response to some of the dialogue. Had the book been better written, perhaps the movie would be too. Nevertheless, by the end I did find myself quite curious about the tortured Mr. Grey. Though absolutely not curious enough to ever pick up the book(s) – in the event that the follow up films were to be cancelled.

Whether it’s the love story, sexy content or even the dialogue, if you’re planning to watch, I hope you’ll find one or two things in the movie worth the experience. Oddly enough, my favourite thing about Fifty Shades Of Grey, is probably not what one might expect. For it is  the following line delivered by Christian Grey within the first ten minutes.

The harder I work the more luck I seem to have’.

Happy Film Loving
