Anastasia and Christian Get Closure in Fifty Shades Freed

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.

For those readers that saw the first film, Let me start by saying this review is written by a fan of the first one. I didn’t read the books but I saw the first movie and while it lacks great dialogue it still provided a sexy and entertaining escape from the real world for a couple of hours. Like the first movie, I watched the sequel on Valentine’s Day like most of America. My viewing at the movies was sold out at least. Unfortunately, while the sequel provided more depth into the characters of Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey, the film lacked structure with a cluttered and chaotic script.
