Bad Reviews of '50 Shades Darker...

Rolling Stone Magazine gave the movie '50 Shades Darker' only one star and went on to explain...

"The plot? It's basically the same as the first time: Ana goes back to Christian after he rescues her from her sexual predator of a boss (Eric Johnson). Christian lets Ana touch him now (hint: he'd been sexually abused as a child), but only in designated areas that he marks on his body with lip gloss. Such gallantry! And for guys looking for Valentine's Day ideas, our heroine seems to adore her present of vaginal beads – the gift that keeps on giving! – and having her butt spanked a rosy pink. No ugly, red bruises here, except to logic and sanity. And what to make of Ana's suddenly stunted vocabulary. Seeing Christian's boat, she sighs "beautiful." The sight of his mansion evokes another "beautiful." And eying the gown Christian's mom (a criminally wasted Marcia Gay Harden) wears to a costume ball, Ana can only say ... "beautiful." Were there only a limited number of words allowed in the script?

Rotten Tomatoes gave the movie 3.3 out of 10 stating...

"Lacking enough chemistry, heat, or narrative friction to satisfy, the limp Fifty Shades Darker wants to be kinky but only serves as its own form of punishment."

ign.com did not give a great review either, saying...

"Fans of Fifty Shades of Grey will undoubtedly be pleased with the continuation of this tale of one woman doing her best to fix the man with whom she is, perplexingly, in love. The characters, however, are at best skin deep, the various storylines remain unexplored, and the chemistry between the cast is minimal. Anastasia's bending over backwards to please Christian is far more frustrating than endearing, and his forcing her to acquiesce to what he wants for her is more than a little horrid. The last movie in the trilogy is due out in a year's time so perhaps it will cause all that has preceded it to make more sense."
