FIFTY SHADES OF GREY (MA) DIRECTED BY: Sam TaylorJohnson STARRING: Dakota Johnson, Jamie Dornan ★★ REVIEW BY: Julian Wright In cinemas now
After Christian takes Anastasia’s V-plates, she is suddenly revitalised and bopping around the kitchen making him bacon and eggs for breakfast – like a grateful, submissive homemaker should?
Going for a good 45 minutes back and forth about whether or not Anastasia will sign on the dotted line, Grey tries everything to persuade her, coming off more like a sex pest than a suave potential boyfriend.
Admittedly, director Sam Taylor-Johnson keeps us on our toes, expertly teasing us until the big reveal and drawing the best possible performances from her cast despite often wretched dialogue.
However, this mix of sex and danger has nothing on the almost 25-year-old Basic Instinct.
