Fifty Shades Of Grey is an 2015 American erotic romantic drama film directed by Sam Taylor-Johnson, with a screenplay by Kelly Marcel. The film is based on E. L. James’ 2011 novel of the same name and stars Dakota Johnson as Anastasia Steele, a college graduate who begins a sadomasochistic relationship with young business magnate Christian Grey, played by Jamie Dornan. This film (along with Fant4stic) won Worst Picture at the 36th Golden Raspberry Awards. The film premiered at the 65th Berlin International Film Festival on February 11, 2015, and was released on February 13, 2015, by Universal Pictures and Focus Features. It is the first installment in the Fifty Shades film trilogy and was followed by two sequels, Fifty Shades Darker and Fifty Shades Freed, released in 2017 and 2018, respectively.

Plot

When college senior Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) steps in for her sick roommate to interview prominent businessman Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan) for their campus paper, little does she realize the path her life will take. Christian, as enigmatic as he is rich and powerful, finds himself strangely drawn to Ana, and she to him. Though sexually inexperienced, Ana plunges headlong into an affair -- and learns that Christian's true sexual proclivities push the boundaries of pain and pleasure.

Why It Sucks

  1. It is based on an already terrible book. Why make a book adaptation that already has really bad writing?
  2. Really bad acting, especially from Jamie Dornan.
  3. The film has barely any plot what so ever. It's basically just a plot for soft-core porn and abuse.
  4. The sex scenes just come off as disturbing, as they are just rape and torture!
  5. Christian and Ana's relationship has really bad chemistry. In fact, their relationship is more abusive than loving.
  6. The portrayal of BDSM in this film is so incorrect, it can be fatal to those who try it.
  7. Christian is a really unlikable character, as he stalks and abuses Ana throughout the film.
  8. Anastasia is also a huge Mary Sue. She's also a complete Bella Swan rip-off.
  9. Even the director, Sam Taylor-Johnson, hated the film. She said that her differences with E.L James caused her to walk away from the series.

Redeeming Qualities

  1. The soundtrack is good, especially "Love Me Like You Do" by Ellie Goulding and "Earned It" by The Weeknd, with the former being nominated for a Golden Globe award for Best Original Song and the latter being nominated for an Academy Award of the same title.
  2. Beautiful cinematography.
  3. The ending where Christian and Ana broke up was great.

Reception

Fifty Shades of Grey received generally negative reviews, with criticism of its acting, screenplay, and pacing, although Danny Elfman's score was praised. On Rotten Tomatoes, the film has an approval rating of 25% based on 269 reviews, with an average rating of 4.19/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "While creatively better endowed than its print counterpart, Fifty Shades of Grey is a less than satisfying experience on the screen". Metacritic gave the film a score of 46 out of 100, based on reviews from 46 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews". In CinemaScore polls conducted during the opening weekend, cinema audiences gave the film an average grade of "C+" on an A+ to F scale.

Trivia

  • The film was banned in Cambodia, Kenya, Malaysia, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, India and Zimbabwe.
