Fifty Shades Darker Reunites Jamie Dornan And Dakota Johnson With Their Sex Tools

This ridiculous second entry in EL James’ S&M romance bestsellers is no pain, no gain.


Fifty Shades Darker (R21: mature theme and sexual scenes)

Starring Jamie Dornan, Dakota Johnson Directed by James Foley

She traces his hunky chest with her lipstick; he dribbles ointment on her pert breasts in S&M games synchronised to soft rock, shot like glossy ads. The returning leads Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson from 2015’s Fifty Shades of Grey do the best they can, and Johnson continues to show screen-charisma promise. But Fifty Shades Darker, the second installment of EL James’ Fifty Shades ‘mummy porn’ female fantasy bestsellers, is ridiculous complete with reproachable gender politics as Seattle millionaire Christian Grey entices a newly independent Ana Steele back into his life and under his domination by showing off his assets, everything from deluxe penthouse to family jewels. Kim Basinger, who would know kinkiness from 9½ Weeks (1986), plays his ex among sundry shadowy figures trying with no luck, sadly, to destroy the tedious affair. 1.5/5
