Fifty Shades Darker is the latest movie adaptation to come from E.L.James best selling series. The Fifty Shades book series quickly shook the nation becoming a sort after book by ladies. It was a nice surprise when it was announced that the books were being made into films! The first movie came out 2 years ago in 2015.
The sequel was anticipated by ladies especially when it was announced that ladies would have to wait 2 years until the sequel would hit the big screen. The movie was finally released on the 10th February 2017 and this blogger couldn't wait to see how the movie turned out.
After the first movie came out there was criticism that the leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson had no chemistry. I can say that if they didn't have chemistry in the first movie they certainly did have it in the second movie! In general it seemed this movie became darker and better than the first, whether the introduction of more characters like Jack Hyde helped, or whether it was because there was a lot more going on.
What was unexpected when watching this movie was the amount of times that it had the whole Cinema laughing. Now if you have read the books, you know that there isn't a lot to laugh about in the second book, but it seems that the writer did add some bits that had us laughing. Whether you were suppose to laugh or not is yet to be seen.
I will warn that there is a part in the movie that did make me jump as it was unexpected. I am not going to mention which part as there will be NO spoilers in this blog, but you have been warned.
After seeing the film this blogger immediately wanted to watch it again, or wish they could go on and watch the third movie sadly it is not planned to hit the Cinemas until 2018. In this bloggers opinion, the movie did do the book justice, including some crucial scenes.
Although some of the songs were not liked at the beginning of the movie, by the end they were loved. So much that the soundtrack is now owned.
I would recommend this movie to anyone who has read the books or anyone who watched the first series. Let me know if you have watched this movie or have booked into watching this movie. I would love to hear your thoughts on the movies so far.
