Quality Film
Verified purchase
After enjoying Fifty Shades of Grey, I was compelled to buy Fifty Shades Darker on Amazon digital. While this movie isn't as funny as the first, Darker is a well made film on multiple levels. While Grey was well acted and funny, most of the funniest parts came from bad writing. Don't get me wrong, Dakota and Jamie are fine actors but weren't given an equally quality effort by the writers. That changed with Darker. The writing, cinematography, and acting are all superb. While it can't hold a candle to the great movies of film history, Fifty Shades Darker is a quality film.

Now it makes sense
Verified purchase
We learn in this installment from a photo that Ana bears a passing resemblance to Christian's crack addict mother as well as an ex g.f.- --brunette, fragile, and waifish. He has a defining "type" and Ana is it. Once this was shown, his obsession came across as more logical. Still, the disconnect is there --she is not submissive and therefore theirs is an uneasy match without work.
This one is better than the first, I think? Mostly because Jamie Dornan is so attractive. I also like his driver played by Maximilian Martini for his rugged reassuring stage presence. Thank you.

Best of the 3 "Fifty Shades" movies
Verified purchase
By far the best of the 3 "Fifty Shades" movies. There is real character development and a sense of exactly why Anastasia goes back to Christian and how together they are able to make a loving relationship. Not only does Ana grow up into a professional woman, but she is able to handle the lack of emotional development that has kept Christian in his BDSM world since he came back to Seattle. However, the writers of this script have given him the chance to show his growing love for Ana and her continued ability to overlook the unnatural way he has dealt with women before. If I had one criticism of the film, it would be that not having Dr. Flynn in any of these movies was a poor decision. When Christian tells Ana the "he is working on it" when she confronts him on his need to punish her, those words mean nothing to the audience. This movie stays very close to the book as far as events occur - but Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Darker told by Christian are far more fulfilling as entertainment - and when you have read these books, you can overlook some of the poor segues from one crisis after another. I think both Dakota and Jamie had much better dialogue to work with - and of course, the sexual scenes are very well done.

Watch from the Human Behavioral Perspective and look from a deeper point, much to be gained, Excellent writing/directing/Acting
Verified purchase
Bought for my wife, she has now watched it like 7 times... This is not a movie about sex, it is about character traits, environmental behavioral impacts on the human mind and the needs which are derived from such impacts. As both a Sociologist and a Clinical behavioralist, having practiced for over a decade in the clinical setting and over 3 decades within field work I can say the characters are much more realistic then many may realize. Watching from this perspective makes the movie much more complete as an experience. Extremely well done! This is not about sex, it's so much more! That is a byproduct.

Dakota improved Ana for me
Verified purchase
I rarely like sequel movies, especially compared to the books. But wow, Dakota Johnson makes Ana come alive and improves the character and story for me. Really enjoyed the soundtrack too. I know they're working on movie 3, I hope it is even better. I do recommend watching!

Not HD and worsen as they come
Verified purchase
I have bought the unrated HD version of this trilogy, and the first thing I want to point out is that they are not HD as advertised. The image is not that crisp to begin with, and it deteriorates significantly if I zoom in on it.

As for the films, well, a good part of the dialogue does not make any sense unless you have read the books to fill in the skipped parts, or your friends who have read them will tell you how in the world something came to be.

Just a couple of examples: on Fifty Shades of Grey, what led to Christian's belting Ana at the end of the movie? In the book, Ana woke up, Christian was playing the piano; they talked; she teased him by running from him; he got mad because she could fall and get hurt and for making him wait. In the movie, they made sweet love before sleep and he woke up seething like an angry beast, wanting to punish Ana for heaven knows why. On Fifty Shades Darker, how did Leila know that the car she destroyed belonged to Ana? Well, because Christian was such a doofus that he bought the woman he is in love with, whom he considers so especial and different from the others, the same car he gave all his subs.

In short, these famous Hollywood film makers made tons of money being as thorough as a bunch of second graders would have been, skipping parts of the story with no regard for continuity or meaning. Incidentally, viewers do not mind because, mostly, the movies are just long infomercials showing how easy and fun life would be if we had money to burn on expensive superfluous stuff and all the time in the world to indulge in our pastimes. As if all this wasn’t enough, just like the books, the second and third films are progressively worse than the first.

Movie is better than the book and the movie isn’t good at all. Great soundtrack.
Verified purchase
Well, I gave this movie a star for the soundtrack, one of the best i’ve Ever heard. Danny Elfman is a genius. Otherwise, so many things wrong here. I really hate when new directors take over a tent pole from women directors and change the looks of the actors in some sort of attempt to woo a female audience. Jamie dornan looks like Stephen Amell, barely recognizable. The time table of the story is less than two months in the story he ends up gaining close to 40 lbs of muscle. The soundtrack is totally needed because there is hardly any dialogue... But the movies are better than the books, so rare. So sad. Should have a trigger warning for intimate partner abuse. Important characters and scenes cut out of the movie entirely.

Worthless teenager drama
Verified purchase
Writen by a 8th grade girl?

This is just a pathetic female fantasy of: young homely girl offers nothing to the relationship, but is able to land the most eligible billionaire on the planet... except his character is that of a child (perhaps to tweak the female mothering aspect?)

Oh, and there is no D/s aspect at all, no one, zero, nada
