Fifty Shades Freed (2018)

I am back with the last and final review of the Fifty Shades series. I admit that writing these always makes me laugh. Here we go again..

If you are not of age in your country and you are not allowed to see the movie in the cinemas. The movie will be sixteen plus or eighteen plus depending on the country. I suggest not reading this post. Although I do think it’s safe to read I don’t think it’s something you would like. If you want to see the movie and/or just read the post you can do that at your own ‘risk’.

What is the movie about?

Fifty Shades Freed is the third and final instalment of the Fifty Shades trilogy. After accepting entrepreneur CEO Christian Grey’s proposal in Fifty Shades Darker. Anastasia Steele must adjust not only to married life but to her new husband’s wealthy lifestyle and controlling nature.

What did I think?
How do you call a film that is the best out of terrible choices? Fifty shades freed apparently. When the credits started rolling, I looked at my friend and we had the following conversation.

“It was easily the best out of all of them”. “It was still bad”. “yes better than those don’t necessarily mean good”.

The film started so well, I thought ‘Yes, this is it’. The climb was cool; the climax never came. Which made me sort of upset because the waiting was long. The wedding dress Ana wore was amazing. The trip to Europe was cool. The Jack B-plot was stupid.

The film left a lot more to your imagination. Which makes the best kind of films/stories. You don’t have to show a male body part to be put into a female one to be a sexy film. The suggestion alone is enough for most people. In this film, the directors got the hint and did more of that.
I did like the fact that Christian knows Ana well enough for him to understand that there is something wrong. As well as the fact that Ana was smart in how she put her phone in the bag so it could be tracked.

The ending, if I was reading it I would have closed the book and looked at the wall for a solid five minutes. It was bad. I feel that a lot of writers want to tie all loose ends, neatly in a bow. Which you don’t have to. I never understood how writers can build up to have all these problems, which yes can be overcome but not in two seconds. It doesn’t work like that.

The whole Jack story could have been a lot better. Or it should have been left out. This storyline was like a weak coffee when you want to drink coffee. An utter disappointment. The music in this film was good, I liked it. It was by far the best part.

Ana is much more badass in this film; I think that is very good. She is a much better character in this one, they both are. You might ask if I recommend this film. Sure if you saw the other two by all means go and watch it.


Anyway, have you seen this film, what do you think?

Lots of love,
