As promised in my preview post, here is my review about this film.
As I said in my previous post, I read the trilogy and I am a huge fan. I was waiting for it release. Finally , I saw it. I reserved my ticket one months ago. We went, with a friend, to the AMC cinema on the 84th street /broadway. Do you know that there are recliner seats in this theater? You have the feeling to be in your bed ! It’s magic ! I did not know this concept because we do not have this type of cinema. However, if you see a late night movie, there is a risk that you feel asleep.
- The actors
The actors are very great. I can feel the alchemy between the two main characters. Even if I did not like Dakota Johnson (Anastasia Steel), I think that she is a great actress. Moreover, she reveals another personality trait of Anastasia: her arrogance. In the book, Anastasia is very « passive ». She does not refute Christian. Jamie Dornan (Christian Grey) is perfect !
- My opinion
I was very surprised by the quality of the movie. I did not know but the movie was available in Imax ! However, I was a little bit disappointed with this movie. I know that it’s really hard to resume a 400 pages book in two hours. In my opinion, certain important scene are not in the movie. Moreover, I did not feel the same passion with the movie. In fact, there are not the thought of Anastasia, which are very important in order to understand correctly the relationship between the main character. However, I am always disappointed when I watch a movie adaptation; so I do not know if my opinion is very relevant.
However, I did not think that Fifty Shades of Grey is the new Twilight. Indeed, even if we can find the same love triangle between Christian, Anastasia and José such as in Twilight. The theme and the feeling are very different. Moreover, the target is very different ! But I hope that this movie and trilogy will have the same success !
I think I will watch him again after its release in DVD !
