Fifty Shades Freed Draws The Curtain On The Franchise

Fifty Shades Freed is the best unintentional comedy of 2018
The other characters in the film contribute nearly nothing, the plot has more holes in it than a block of Swiss cheese, and the relationship between the lovers has lost its sparkle, dramatic tension and kinky edge.
"Vulture's Emily Yoshida takes a more in-depth look at the film's contribution to popular culture, lamenting that "[Fifty Shades Freed] treats its sex scenes the way the Fast and Furious franchise treats vehicle chases; set pieces to be gushed about while exiting the theater [sic]". Even when Anastasia has a nightmare, and we travel into her dreamscape, we're not seeing the world from her point of view, to get into her psychology of the moment; we're on the outside, watching her, while her old boss Jack (Eric Johnson) comes up from behind and tries to strangle her, which reads as hilarious, not frightening. Ana drives a auto; Christian drives a jet ski.
The third and (presumably) final movie in the Fifty Shades franchise is hitting theaters this weekend. So while Christian and Ana remained handcuffed to the same spot, while also resisting its uncensored, campy potential, Fifty Shades has proven to be neither a great love story nor a rousing erotic romance. Christian can't accept that his wife will no longer obey his orders, as she sunbathes in the nude, refuses to take his last name at her place of work and drives his Audi Quattro at top speed. Die-hard fans will also love Ana's new attitude in this film, as she fully embraces her confidence as well as her position at her Christian's side. "What she says goes".
They actually look like they're having fun for once, which is not such a bad thing. Hyde's hazily motivated attacks on Ana are quashed with laughable ease: Christian's collection of riding crops would be more likely to do her an injury. Here are the most hilarious, savage takes. Jack returns to make sure to put a kibosh on a happy newlywed beginning. Unlike the first and second films, he's not even feigning interest here as his performance is a million miles away from the ones delivered in The Fall and Anthropoid, where he proved that he can in fact act.
And for proof that Fifty Shades has helped sell luxury fashion in addition to lipstick, look no further than Monique Lhuillier, who's designed two of the trilogy's most memorable looks: Ana's masquerade dress in Darker and her wedding gown in Freed. Christian's "highly-skilled" security team are so weak-ass at their jobs that they can't make the connection either.
Fifty Shades of Hutt Jabba the Hutt is looking to get Leia'd.
Still, Fifty Shades Freed isn't wholly without incident. So when I got the opportunity to review Fifty Shades Freed, the climactic chapter of the noteworthy series, I did my due diligence and watched the first two movies as the lead up to the finale. Have dinner, a few drinks and cheer the new couple on their alternative life together.
In the end - Mrs. "If I don't think it adds anything or I don't deem it to be necessary to move the story along, then I don't think you need to see that part of me, or that part of Dakota [Johnson]", he told ET during our exclusive interview at the Palais Garnier the same day.
