Watch or Nah?: Fifty Shades Freed

Hello World,

I know this is even a day later than the day late post, I said would deliver, but it's just been one of those weeks. Better late than never, right? Anyway, I asked you guys on Wednesday, what movie I should review next, and the majority of you said Fifty Shades Freed, so without further ado, here is my review of the final chapter in the Fifty Shades saga. 

Film/ Television Show Information

Name: Fifty Shades Freed

Genre: Romance, Drama

Director : James Foley

Main Cast: : Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson, Eric Johnson


1 = Trash

2 =Meh

3 = OK

4 = Solid

5 = Bomb

Acting/ Performance


The acting in this film is decent. I repeat the acting in this film is decent. If you've followed the Fifty Shades saga from the first, then you know how incredible that statement, because it has been such a long journey to get decent acting. So I repeat the acting in this film is decent. There are times, where I felt the actors were bored of the lines they were saying. I don't know if that's a knock on the writing or performance, so I'll just take off for both. 



The writing is lazy. It's just random narrative pieces tossed together, just buying time until the sex scene or Audi product placement. This film was written like a 2 hour ad segment for Audi. If you've ever wondered what would happen if car companies also made movies... But the story itself if not bad. It's not great, but it's definitely better than previous story-lines in the Fifty Shades saga.



This film was created like a commercial or like a reality TV show. There are scenes in this movie that look like a transition scene from Keeping Up with the Kardashians. There were some good visuals in this film, but it was mostly just an advertisment for the top 1% lifestyle.

Costume Design


 There was just nothing particularly special about the costume design in this movie. I don't feel it took away from the film or added anything. 

Editing/Special Effects


I've said before this film was a made like ad, and watch the car chase scene, and tell me that's not the same techniques used in car commercials. You can't! The editing choices in this movie were just a no. When watching a film, you shouldn't be distracted by the camera edits. The editing was strange and distracting. It pulled you from the story, and made you wonder things, like "Why am I this close to her face? What is this adding to the scene?" 



The soundtracks have consistently been the best part of these movies, and in it's final chapter, it continued to follow suite. 

Overall Rating (average the rating numbers above)  - 2.6/5.0

Recommendation: Nah!😕

If there was an award for most improved movie franchise, Fifty Shades would deserve it. This film franchise has gotten consistently better with each movie, which is sad because the final movie was still not a good movie. If you've watched the other movies in this franchise, then you NEED to watch this movie. This movie will provide you with a great conclusion of what a decent Fifty Shades film could be. Otherwise, you've tortured yourself through the other 2 movies for no reason. On the other hand, if you have never seen a Fifty Shades film in your life, now is not the time to start. You will not appreciate anything about this film. You will not see it as a work of improvement, you'll just see it as a bad movie. I also feel like this is a franchise where you need to see the previous movies to understand the plot, because the story-lines are connected. Overall, I would not recommend this movie, unless you're already a "fan" of the Fifty Shades franchise. It's just not a good movie. 

Au Revoir,
