Gabrielle Bondi reviews “Fifty Shades Darker” for The Young Folks


I’m a little loss for words about Fifty Shades Darker, the second installment of E.L. James’ Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy to hit the big screen this Valentine’s Day weekend. I’m not speechless over how good or bad the film is. Point blank, it is bad, but it’s just so appalling rudimentary that dwelling on the movie any longer might make me fall asleep. What was at the very least tantalizing and sensual in the first film is now gone in exchange for a wealth of questionable emotional drama that is sadistic in its own way.
