Andrew Garfield, Mahershala Ali, Ruth Negga, and five others received their first-ever acting nominations for 2017. While these actors are new to the Academy Awards, you may recognize them from their earlier work.
The first human born on Mars travels to Earth for the first time, experiencing the wonders of the planet through fresh eyes. He embarks on an adventure with a street smart girl to discover how he came to be.
Jamie Dornan revealed that he worked out very hard for his shirtless scenes and packed on more muscle for this film compared to the first film. Dornan said that for the first film, he was not very happy with his physique because he got cast just 5 weeks before filming, so he couldn't really achieve the physique he wanted for the character of Christian Grey. But for the sequels he said he had almost years to prepare, so he could get into the shape he wanted and he definitely wanted to make the character more physically imposing compared to the first film and he was able to do that with the extra time.

Maybe now would be a good time to go over what you expect of me.
I expect you to call me Ana. I don't expect you to fetch me coffee unless you're getting some for yourself. And the rest we'll just make up as we go along.

So as usual i will keep the review as spoilerfree as possible with rating multiple aspects of the film.
Acting: Yup, here we go again. Again dakota was functionable. Jamie
was stale, tried to put more emotion into his character which came out unnatural, etc. The side characters were over the top. The only actor i liked was the "stalker girl" you see in the trailers. She brought at least something interesting. Both moms also acted well though. 3/10
Story: The story wasn't as bad as the first one was. There was a new
interesting addition to it with Christian greys past, but it was executed so poorly.. It felt like the writers were like: god.. we cant do the same thing... what about a girl from greys past that stalks him... yea yea great. There were a few events which had nothing interesting to add to the story. It was just there as fillers.. I won't say much except for "helicopter-scene" and you'll know what im talking about. All in All, horrible as expected. 2/10
Characters: enough could be said about mr grey etc, but the one
thingI hate is constantly seeing weak women characters in movies. Ana isn't just weak... she gets convinced in a relationship she purely was against 10 minutes into the movie, gives him a kiss of a lifetime after their first date because he gave her a present, didn't go to new york for her job because mr. grey said she couldn't... etc. etc. etc. i could go on and on, but when multiple women write a story at least let her be strong in 1 single scene. she even had to be rescued by him TWICE! 4/10
Dialogue: this.. i cant take seriously. Again Mr. Grey would horrible
stupid lines which could only make soccer moms panties wet. It was so bad and unbelievable. You can tell the husband of the writer of the stories let in lines he normally would reject. "You're too... dressed" goddddd. 1/10
Cinematography: Again great. The movie overall might be sh*t but the
cinematography is always beautiful and well filmed.
Rated R-stuff: Yea, they did it again. Not a lot of SM this time
around. This time 3 out of 5 sex scenes didn't even feel sexy, but bland. Every scene was leading up to these scenes and normally i wouldn't mind that, if it had been interesting to watch. At least the first one had some sexy mystery to mr. grey, but now he is what we all thought he was: a controlling, stalking and abusive freak. 7/10
Verdict: Why bother? its a badly scripted romantic drama with soft-core-porn intentions, which don't play out very well. You cant even laugh anymore at how bad it is. Its just bad and sad to see a movie like this make money. Bad acting, story and horrible dialogue... go see LA LA LAND, any other Oscar contenders, or the lego batman film or john wick.. go see anything but this guys!
