Don't Let the Naysayers Talk You Out of Seeing Bound
Michelle (Charisma Carpenter) is a harried real estate agent with a lousy sex life. When she's attracted to a sexy stranger into BDSM, Ryan (Bryce Draper), she finds her sexual fulfillment is dangerously imperiling her job and her father's (Daniel Baldwin) company...
I just picked up Bound out of idle curiosity. When I decided to do a little research about the company that produced this film, The Asylum, I was rather perturbed that they specialize in a specialized sort of copycat films called knockoffs called "mockbusters".
Imagine my surprise when this movie, a "mock" of Fifty Shades of Gray, showed not only a titillating amount of skin (mostly Ms. Carpenter's) but some semblance of an actual PLOT (with a lovely denouement) and some very earnest acting! I believe that by keeping my expectations low, I was pleasantly surprise by how good this effective a film actually is. By all means, if you're looking for a little erotic movie to watch one evening with someone, I'd highly recommend Bound.
I'd give this movie **1/2 stars on Leonard Maltin's **** scale
