Fifty Shades of Grey

Erotic. Shocking. Literary Failure. Just a few words that would describe the book which sold around 100 million copies worldwide. Now it has been adapted into a screenplay, how did it fare as a movie?

Anastasia Steele is a shy English Lit Major student who is tasked to interview a confident and sleek CEO, Christian Grey. While the interview lasted for a short time, Grey came into liking Anastasia and ultimately becomes involved with her. What Anastasia don't know is Grey's liking to sadomasochism.

The plot goes like this: "Girl meets boy, boy likes girl, but hey, I want to slap you so bad, you will like it, which I hope you do." Anastasia on the other hand seeks for intimacy which is contrary to what Grey wants. In the process, Grey ends up to be a changed man which turned the tables around.

While we are devoid of the graphic descriptions made in the book, the sexual encounters are restrained and becomes quite repetitive as the movie progresses and that becomes a bad thing. The movie becomes entirely long because nothing actually happens in between sex.

Fifty Shades of Grey is nothing but for the fans to please them. There is nothing special with the film. No exploration of the psyche of the Dominant (Grey) or the Submissive (Steele). The motivation of the characters are lost in the process and ultimately you will fail to care about the characters whether they will end up together or break up.

Fifty Shades of Grey is made for those who loved the books, but for those who expects the film to be engaging, then I would advise that the long wait you have to get yourself checked by the doctor is more worth it.

P.S. I suggest that you watch Nyphomaniac Vol. 1 and 2 by Lars Von Trier and starred by Shia LeBeouf
