Fifty Shades of Grey a story about a college student named Anastasia Steele, who ends up meeting billionaire Christian Grey for an interview , leading to sparks flying between the two.
An unexpected turn of how the story of Fifty Shades of Grey was told was by infusing humor into the film. This allowed the audience members to loosen up while watching the film, it also helped the film seem like it wasn't taking itself way too seriously when telling a story that to some is considered taboo .
Though, when it came to Christian Grey's character and the issues that are within him, that story was treated with respect and seriousness, along with how it affects his relationship with Anastasia, mainly when dealing with inabilities of being able to be in a normal relationship.
Dakota Johnson was surprisingly good as Anastasia Steele, her comedic timing was perfect and she was able to play the naive, innocent woman that Anastasia was described as, as far as when it comes to portraying the character in the way I remembered from the first 9 chapters of the book that I've actually read.
Jamie Dornan was also good at portraying the fictional character of Christian Grey, he was like I remember of how the character was described, as well in the first 9 chapters of the book, a man who lacks real layers of emotions, yet of course, not when it comes to Anastasia when she's able to chip away at him.
Though there was a handful of positive aspects of the film, another being the music soundtrack for the film, there was many things that felt like they were lacking. One example, that stood out the most was the transitioning of scenes weren't done smoothly. It strongly felt as though some real important takes, that were meant to help keep the stability of the story were left on the editing floor.
Along with this issue, the sex scenes were more of a hinder to the film than a positive impact, as they were drawn out and took away from time that could had been used to development some of the side characters that were introduced or possibly help develop more of Christian Grey's backstory.
Overall, Fifty Shades of Grey had positive aspects to it, but also had some aspects that I wish were done differently or weren't in the film at all.
