Honestly, I hoped that the "love" story between the naive girl and the narcissist will somehow turn out to be a bit less selfish and more real, but the truth is that this 3rd part was so boring.. nothing interesting happened. Hardin is still the same hurt, selfish, possessive guy, Tessa doesn't get smarter either... This relationship is so toxic! What they have isn't even love, is addiction. She is addicted to him, he is addicted to owning her. The whole vibe and even the erotic scenes felt a bit repetitive and outdated. The intimate moments between them were filmed very boring as well, there was no real passion.. I mean what was the point of them anyway? To fill up some time, cos they felt like a chore for them. To show us that Thessa is in control and she is the one leading now? I don't think that's the case.. she is addicted to him, that's all. I feel like this movie was going to be a bigger hit like 10 years ago. But in this day and age, it's not giving me enough. There were some absolutely pointless scenes ( I assume they showed them cos of the book, which I haven't read), like the guy in the restaurant. What was the point of that? To show us how possessive and self-absorbed Harden is? But we already know that :D I am very disappointed.. I mean I never been a huge fan of this movies cos they are triggering for me (if you've been with a narcissist, you know what I mean), but the trashy romance sometimes is cute to watch or at least exciting. This one was none of that.. I mean I can't believe this movie was almost 2 hours of nothing happening. A bit of pointless fights, a bit of erotic scenes (tho even they were boring...).. Too bad. The previous 2 were better. Yes, in this one Hardin maybe showed a bit more of his love for her, but meh..
P. S. I read somewhere that this and the upcoming next movie were filmed in Sofia/Bulgaria and I am from Sofia :D I had no idea, is this even true? Kinda disappointing if it is :/ cos the movie sucks ;D.
