Fifty Shades of Grey — Not as bad as most critic would have you believe — 6*/10

  • Story: Rather simple. Intro somewhat brusque. Interesting development. Perfect ending.
  • Characters: Acceptable, but we don't get to know them a lot, it's too short for that.
  • Dialogs: Piteous. They work for a book, but not a movie.
  • Scenario: Nicely paced, but there's not enough material to get anywhere.
  • Actors: Acceptable work. The only notable cast member is Marcia Gay Harden.
  • Photography: Very pleasing to the eye. Rich, and understandably so.
  • Sound: Great music, well scored soundtrack, but the ambient sounds were somewhat weirdly chosen, like some forest bird noise right downtown?
  • Special effects: None.
  • Synopsis & informationhttp://www.imdb.com/title/tt2322441/
  • Who is it for? Those looking for spicy erotic without having too much expectation. Think Harlequin in BDSM format.

There's been a competition on who's review would trash this little flick the most. I'm not sure why, but it's not that bad. Don't get me wrong, it's not a masterpiece, far from it, but it's nice entertainment. Contrary to complaints I heard, you might not see him as naked as her or as often, but you do see him well. Also, there might have been some better choice for Grey in Hollywood, but he's not bad looking.
