Fifty Shades of Grey

Critics Consensus

While creatively better endowed than its print counterpart, Fifty Shades of Grey is a less than satisfying experience on the screen.

Audience Reviews for Fifty Shades of Grey

    I won't even get into why the novel sounds like utterly asinine stuff and concentrate why the movie is probably a lot more tame and also nothing to get excited about. Sure, there are some entertaining and amusing parts and, of course, a few sex scenes that show a lot of Johnson, but once the whips are whipped out things get really repetitive until there suddenly isn't much of an ending and the film just stops. Especially the last 15 minutes with all the crying are really boring and annoying. Avoid and watch porn instead.

    With unintentionally hilarious dialogue, terrible writing, bad plot and just about everything being a disaster. Fifty Shades of Grey is nothing more than a porno with piss poor storytelling and dialogue. Though to be honest most pornos have better stories than this disaster of a flick. Best part, we're getting 2 more of these.... yay?....... please don't waste your time with this movie...

    Though the depiction of a BDSM relationship as solely abusive is ridiculous, and the characters are bland cardboard cutouts, some of this I actually enjoyed. It makes fun of itself occasionally and can actually warrant a laugh. Visually this film is pretty well shot, with balanced, eye catching frames, and beautiful visuals of the Seattle landscape. The soundtrack and songs were really tonally perfect, though I didn't see the film as a love story so much as an off-balance depiction of an already degraded and misunderstood group of people.
