Our Rating: ★☆☆☆☆
Story: Romantic drama sequel directed by James Foley which follows a wounded Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) as he tries to entice a cautious Ana Steele (Dakota Johnson) back into his life, who is trying to move on with her life without his influence.
However she demands a new arrangement, with no secrets, no rules and no punishment, before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian’s past start to circle the couple, determined to destroy their hopes for a future together.
Verdict: The first movie wasn’t great and sadly this sequel does nothing to improve the franchise. I wish I could be more positive about this movie, but I just couldn’t find anything redeeming here. The dialogue is pretty awful, I don’t know anyone who actually speaks like this in real life. Unless you’re a die-hard fan of this franchise stay well clear of this.REVIEWS
