Fifty Shades Of Grey Review


Very Good

After all the hype, it's impossible not to expect steam from this adaptation of E.L. James' mommy-porn bestseller, but the average episode of Red Shoe Diaries is friskier than this movie. Still, it's a well written and played drama, building an unusual romance with a series of scenes that are sometimes sexy but never actually transgressive. And the nicest surprise is that in the hands of director Sam Taylor-Johnson it becomes a witty tale of female empowerment.

It's set in the American Northwest, where Anastasia Steele (Dakota Johnson) is finishing her studies as an English literature major when she's asked by her journalist roommate Kate (Eloise Mumford) to interview Seattle's most eligible bachelor, billionaire Christian Grey (Jamie Dornan). Ana's awkwardly confident approach immediately gets under his skin, and he pursues her as if she's a corporate acquisition, complete with non-disclosure agreements and a contract that would make her submissive to his dominant. But she isn't so sure about all of this, and as she falls for him, she begins to make him break his own rules. Of course he thinks she should be punished for that.

Essentially, this film is mere foreplay, as the push and pull between Ana and Christian cycles through various set-pieces on the way to an ending that is clearly designed to get fans in a lather for films based on the second and third novels in the trilogy. And the studio would be wise to keep Taylor-Johnson and screenwriter Kelly Marcel (Saving Mr Banks, another story of male-female control) on board, as they have clearly beefed up James' novel with a strong dose of wry humour, bringing out the deeper themes rather than focussing on the under-developed plot and characters.

Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson

It is one of the most anticipated movies of 2015 - but of the hype surrounding Fifty Shades of Grey centers on how Sam Taylor-Johnson has chosen to depict the racier passages from E.L James' book.  That question may have been answered - at least in part - with the news that the film has avoided the restrictive NC-17 rating from US censors. 

Fifty Shades of GreyJamie Dornan plays Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey

The movie, about a handsome billionaire and his submissive plaything, has been handed the R rating, referencing "strong sexual content including dialogue, some unusual behavior and graphic nudity." That rating means those under 17 will need to be accompanied by a parent or guardian in the US, though does suggest that the content is milder than initially anticipated.

Jamie Dornan Guy Ritchie

Guy Ritchie, the British director behind Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch and the Sherlock Holmes movies, is keen to cast Fifty Shades of Grey actor Jamie Dornan in his forthcoming King Arthur movies. Ritchie wants the Irish actor to take the lead the franchise, according to The Sun.

Ritchie is said to have been "blown away" when he met the 32-year-old actor - which is a bit weird.

If you’re not a Fifty Shades of Grey fan, that’s ok, apparently the books and upcoming movie have more than enough of those already. When the PG-13 trailer was released last Thursday, it was mostly met with sarcasm and negative comments and reviews. Because, you know, the internet. But the story of Ana Steele and Christian Grey still has a lot of momentum.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Diehards Finally Get Full Trailer


Dakota Johnson Jamie Dornan Charlie Hunnam

This is your moment Fifty Shades of Grey fans – the trailer for Sam Taylor-Johnson’s steamy adaptation finally dropped on Thursday. This should ease any doubts about stars Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan, who both look pretty perfect for their respective roles.

Fifty Shades Of Grey
Story aside, the film looks visually polished.

But more than that, the trailer itself is remarkably tame. Set to a remix of Beyonce’s Crazy in Love (like the teaser from last week) the trailer includes Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey’s meeting and their deepening relationship, but it’s all firmly PG until the final three second. You guessed it, that’s when the crops and blindfolds come out and we’re reminded that this is the Fifty Shades of Grey and not just the latest soapy drama churned out by the Hollywood machine.

Fifty Shades Of Grey Trailer


Anastasia Steele is a shy college student who is forced to interview an enigmatic entrepreneur named Christian Grey. Their first meeting doesn't go as well as planned and subsequently she is shocked when it appears that he has a seemingly romantic interest in her. He's not the sort to go out on drunken nights or make any of the usual romantic gestures, but Anastasia remains captivated by the intense sense of mystery surrounding him. Some of that mystery is unveiled, however, when he reveals his sexual desires to her, but it seems even then his wishes are not of the usual kind. Christian asks Anastasia to sign a document in order for them to be intimate, and that coupled with the rope and tape he recently purchased starts to make her realise just what sort of sensual adventure she's about to experience.

When young college student Anastasia Steele meets a mysterious wealthy businessman named Christian Grey, she had no idea she'd be embarking on the sexual adventure of her lifetime. While he makes it clear that he's not the type for wild nights of drunken laughs or even for a bunch of flowers and chocolates, Ana can't help but feel irresistably intrigued by the beguiling sense of unknown surrounding her new obsession. Soon though, all is revealed when Christian insists she sign a document before they enter into any kind of intimacy, and putting that together with the bunch of rope and masking tape she saw him purchase at the hardware store, she starts to realise that she's about to enter into a relationship that is more out of the ordinary than she could ever have possibly imagined.

New '50 Shades' Snap Sends Swooning Fans Into Meltdown


Jamie Dornan Dakota Johnson E.L. James Sam Taylor-Wood

Lace fans and snuff at the ready, Fifty Shades of Grey fans, because a new promotional photo has been released ahead of the upcoming saucy movie. The brand new close-up features actor Jamie Dornan as lead character Christian Grey and has set author EL James' fans tingling with anticipation for Sam Taylor-Johnson's 2015 adaptation.

Pictured sitting in a car, presumed to be the black Audi R8 Spyder detailed in the books, Grey is intently focussed on something in the middle distance. He seems to have eschewed his smart business attire in favour of a more "civilian" black leather jacket and T-shirt combo.

It's unclear whether Grey's gaze is more seductive or scowly but fans online have been speculating that Grey is staring at Ana Steel, his lover, who is played by Dakota Johnson. Many have read deeper into the photo, asking why the film's team have decided to release this particular shot.

Adapted by Sam Taylor-Johnson, the 2015 movie will feature Dornan as Grey alongside Dakota Johnson, who will play the story's protagonist and narrator, Ana Steele.

The snap follows the first official promo poster for the film that was revealed on Valentine's Day this year. We see the back of a silhouetted Grey standing in front of a large glass window and looking out over Seattle. The shot was captioned with "Mr. Grey will see you now," referencing the first encounter the two main characters have.

Jamie Dornan Sam Taylor-Wood E.L. James

Jamie Dornan has revealed that he has a long-running dissatisfaction with his physique, despite having been a Calvin Klein model and now working on the lead role in the upcoming erotic drama, Fifty Shades of Grey.

Known for his oiled underwear adverts with Eva Mendes, breakthrough role in TV drama The Fall, and small part in 2006's Marie Antoinette, Dornan landed his first lead role in a movie after being cast as the BDSM-loving businessman Christian Grey in Sam Taylor-Johnson's 2015 adaptation of EL James' adult fiction series.

Remarkably, the actor is rather self-deprecating and has revealed that he doesn't quite see what all the fuss over his buff physique is about. "I don't like my physique. Who does? I was a skinny guy growing up, and I still feel like that same skinny kid," the Irish star admitted.

In a trilogy of books in which spanking and sex contracts are the norm, audiences will be surprised to hear there's little sex in the preview of Fifty Shades of Grey. Whilst fans are busy creating their own trailers in which S&M is definitely present, Universal Pictures, the studio behind the Sam Taylor Johnson directed films, are ensuring the films remain on the "vanilla" side of the sexual tracks.
