REVIEW: Fifty Shades Darker
Posted by Scott R. Garrigus

REVIEW: Fifty Shades Darker"Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson return as Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele in Fifty Shades Darker, the second chapter based on the worldwide bestselling Fifty Shades phenomenon. When a wounded Christian tries to entice a cautious Anastasia back into his life, she demands a new arrangement before she will give him another chance. As the two begin to build trust and find stability, shadowy figures from Christian's past start to circle the couple. Jack Hyde (Eric Johnson) and Elena Lincoln (Kim Basinger) join the cast, determined to destroy the couple's hopes for a future together. This time there are no rules." That is the official description for Fifty Shades Darker, now available on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray, DVD, and Digital HD from Universal Studios Home Entertainment, which has provided NewTechReview with a NFR copy for review.

Despite what you might think about the Fifty Shades franchise, both the books and the films have garnered a generous cult following. From a filmmaking standpoint, most critics (including myself) find these movies to be, shall we say, less than stellar (and that's putting it mildly). The scripts are devoid of any true substance and the acting is simply not good. Although, I must say that the actors really do try their best...
