An Irish cinema took a particular and “drastic” measure with the functions of “50 darker shadows”: it prohibited the entrance to single men. A week ago, when the film was released in the North European country, the Diamond Cinema of the city of Navan issued this message: “If you go to ‘Fifty Shades Darker’ and bring your boyfriend, it is better to have a Great space between you.
The film has a rating for people over 18, and single or married men who come unaccompanied cannot enter the functions. “The message’s spokesman, Paul Egan, justified the decision by saying that the tape starring Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan “could lead to all kinds of temptations, with the hormones of some women flying over the spot when they see it.” “I think it will be better to keep the men outside until we see if they can be controlled,” he added in a dialogue with the Irish Mirror.
Of course, the same film later clarified that it is not a prohibition itself, but rather “a recommendation.”
The critics shattered the film 50 darker shadows, cataloging it as disastrous and a little original plot. In this second part of a rather discreet sample of their perversions, Anastasia fled, so that ‘Fifty darker shadows’ had to rejoin the characters and then see how they were conforming to that new relationship between them. Here she has already left behind all her naiveté – although there is still some rather painful dialogue to remind us that she was a young and modest caste – and everything revolves around how much he wants him to be what he is without therefore having to get to do Something that goes against its principles.
The truth is that all this sounds very uninteresting since in the end, we all know that they are going to be reconciled, so all the grace is reserved in seeing to what point they can make their visionary something entertaining the different obstacles that have to go bypassing. Unfortunately, there is not the slightest interest in inquiring in any of them, being all reserved to blows of effect somewhat gratuitous that only got me to despair more and more.
What I am not clear is which one of them is integrated worse. On the one hand we have a lamentable subplot with the head of Anastasia – threaded Eric Johnson -, who certainly did not surnamed Hyde by chance, and who threatens to go further in the third installment, then the artificial tension of the old submissive Of Christian-inconsequential Bella Heathcote-without forgetting the poor use of Kim Basinger as the particular Mrs. Robinson of him.
However, there is a phase of the film that for me was what got that puts ‘Fifty darker shadows’ at a level slightly lower than its predecessor when until then some small drop of humor was avoiding. I mean a moment of great tension out of nothing that is so gratuitous that the only thing that awakens is incomprehension, but is that then its resolution is so delirious that one almost without forgetting that on top does not bring anything real in the dramatic section. A real disaster.
