The movie is shown in the Philippines with noticeable blurs and screen blocks as introduced by the local producers even prior to review by the local movie regulatory board. This was an attempt to get an R-16 rating for the film to be shown on more cinemas and to a broader audience. However, the film still received an R-18 rating. See more »
In a particular scene Christian is shown using his MacBook, then closes it when Ana walks in the room. The apple on his MacBook was not lit up when he was using it, so in fact he was staring at a dark screen on his MacBook when he was supposedly doing business on it. See more »
Sorry but I can't get over Jamie Doran.. I mean he comes from playing a serial killer in the Fall (who tied up women and murdered them) to .. Well. 20 mins of sex. The movie is boring and predictable. The fine line between abuse and pleasure is so thin it's almost non- existent. Lacks any of the raunch or controversy promised, and is instead tiresome, banal and as thinly plotted as a porn. I haven't read the book.. and I have to say I didn't finish the movie. I don't think i missed much by leaving 20 mins early, but it was just boring. If a man had written the book he would probably have been jailed. Its beyond understanding what people see in the book/movie. Unless all the women I know are telling me lies and secretly want to be tied up and abused by a perverted man.
