Where the first Fifty Shades film was at least alluring and intriguing, such is not the case for Fifty Shades Darker. This is a film purely for people who like the main characters and simply want to know what happens with them. The film itself is very slow, very bland, and really doesn't live up to all the hype. I tried reading the book, and I gave up halfway through. It's no better.
