Is '50 Shades of Grey' all it's cracked up to be?

With the novel selling out to be a global phenomenon, I like many others, was pretty excited about ‘Fifty Shades of Grey‘ coming to cinemas for Valentines. 

Despite having not read the book, I was pretty sure that I would enjoy the film – after all, it’s meant to be an incredible ‘must-read’, isn’t it?

At the beginning of the film, I did find it quite entertaining – Christian Grey obviously being a main attraction! However as the film continued, I found myself beginning to get a bit tired (ok it was like 10 o’clock tbf but still). In my opinion despite the film’s duration being just over two hours, nothing really major appeared to happen – apart from lots of sex scenes (obviously); and just when I thought the plot was actually going to go somewhere, it ended! I do realise that it was intentionally left on a cliffhanger so that it could lead on to the upcoming sequels, but seriously?!
Ok yes, I will admit that I will most likely see the sequels should they come to cinema, but that is purely in the hope that the storyline improves; because overall I thought the first film was pretty disappointing.

What did you think?

  1. I laughed the whole way through. Just couldn't take it seriously! Still...managed to sit through the film, couldn't finish the book!
