A series of random and repetitive scenes cut together
Before I start going reviewing this one: I didn't watched the first one because of the enormous negative critiques and the fact that it sheds the wrong light on real BDSM practices. So the second one I watched, but only because my SO insisted to watch it with me. She read the book and everything and summarized the story of the first one in 15! seconds.
But what then happens is beyond good or evil. There is practically no story. It is just predictable random scenes cut together to achieve movie length. It is meeting again + kiss, instant sex (because otherwise it would have been boring if she would really challenge him), some random party scenes, more boring sex, another scene were he crashes (he returns like Iron Man asking: What are you doing here? Not even a facial expression, which marks the peek of bad acting in this movie and how bad the writing of the dialogues is). + more sex. There are so many logical mistakes and the cringe factors, especially of the dialogues lets me give it 2 stars instead of just one. If you have at least some movie brain you will uncover constantly mistakes made by the director, cutter, writer or by the actors. So I got at least some entertainment back by spotting them. Thank god I have a GF which sees its the same and allows me to make jokes throughout the movie otherwise I would have left after 20 minutes.
Finally, watching this with 15 or 16 years depending how it is age rated in your region, I can almost assume that it gives you the picture/creates a narrative that you have to be a total unromantic spoiled brat to be successful and that this, the way the movie shows it, is the way to treat a women once you have established some connection to her. I almost would have gone more into political aspects or social power relations of this movie here but it is not worth my time and also I guess people are not so interested in this aspects anyway. Throughout the whole movie I was thinking, it would be worth more spending the movie time at home cooking a dinner for your SO than spending money and time on this garbage. The producers should shame themselves and donate some money to real victims of domestic violence and cure for drug addiction.
P.S. It was my first review here.
