Well movie geeks, it’s that time, the final chapter to the unbelievable relationship of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey. I remember like it was yesterday, or should I say two days ago when I decided to re watch the first one, when Ms. Steele tripped over her own insecurities when those elevators opened and the dapper handsome Mr. Gray helps her up and it was love at first sight. Two movies later full of sex, love, whips, chains, and some of the weirdest conversations between two people and we are at the final chapter of the movie adaptation of the popular book series created by E.L. James and directed by James Foley.

In the third and possibly final installment, they have gone through all their baggage trying to balance out their wants and needs in the relationship and decide to tie the knot. The wedding is probably the only reasonable and normal scene close to real life that others can relate to. After that, it’s back to being the over the top fantasy out of a romance novel antics we all come to see. So, what do they do for the other hour and thirty minutes? I’ll give you one guess. While they had their clothes on they are dealing with flirty realtors, new bodyguards, and the growing obsession of Anastasia’s old boss Jack as he seeks revenge. You remember Jack, the one who tried to have sex with her in the office but it backfired and he ended up fired and she took his job. Of course, Jack is pissed, but its deeper than that and that gets explored in this film as they try to add more thrills to this thriller.

Dylan O’Brien is back as the title character, Thomas, along with his friends starting where they left off by completing a rescue mission for one of their own, Minho (Ki Hong Lee), one of the original runners from the first film, who was taken hostage by WCKD at the end of The Scorch Trials. That leads to a chain of events that leads to a final showdown between the runners and WCKD in the attempt to find a cure that is wiping out mankind and the freedom of those who are being killed from the failed experiments held by the organization.
