Review based on the movie, I haven't read the books
There was absolutely no chemistry between the main actors.
The sex is about as sensual as a log of wood thrown on the road.
The sets and art direction are excellent and create the perfect ambiance.
The music is all right in terms of theme and pacing.
She was irritating and there were way too many close-ups of her. Neither her features nor her mannerism could hold it.
He was every bit of gorgeous, but with a rather wooden performance; no pun intended, because he's as sensual as last year's sock.
Will I be watching Part II ? NAY.
Will I be reading any of the books ? NAY.
