Viewer reviews

Uhh....Question
★★★★
Why make a sequl if the first movie sucked Brussel sprouts — Pineapplelover8837

Worse than the 1st Fifty Shades
★★★★
I didn't think FS Darker could be worse than the first FS given E.L.'s co-producing. This movie isn't worth the $15 nor your time. Very dissapointing. — Geri Hazelitt

So much better than the first
★★★★★
A lot better than the first. The extended, not released in theaters version is even better. Sure it's a bit different than the book but that's almost always the case when adapting a movie from an extremely long and detailed book. — Jae D

Can't play it
★★★★
I have and issue playing the movie is not even 24 hours since I start watching it and I can't continue watching I want a refund!!! — Jacky4188

Making sense
★★★★★
It is a continuation on the fifty shades grey and I'm beginning to understand the whole story with the fifty shades darker. I like it when Christian is becoming more normal and falling I love with Ana. 😍 it is mKing sense why Mr. Grey is a little sexual and perverted. lol I love the movie! — Krystaljan

Ummm no
★★★★
Movie had no point, no plot. Still unsure what it was about. — Ummmhhhuuuu

Bought it but won't play
★★★★
This review is solely on how it's not playing when I clearly purchased the movie. Fix this issue! — goddess of luck

Should have listened
★★★★
I was warned. I read the reviews and still thought maybe it's not as bad as they say...wrong!! It's horrible, awkward and painful to watch. If you thought the first one was bad this is much much worse. Just don't buy or even rent this at all!! Waste of time and money! 😩😩 — rokwu01

Worst movie ever!!!
★★★★
Don't spend your time & money on this movie... it's better just to watch the trailer — SOUTHWRITER

Hot
★★★★★
Oh this film was very hot and make me crazy ... and because of that i slept with the first man that i see and that was very good... and i think i like this position of sex ..thank u christian and ana❤️ — f_.tme

I like movie
★★★★★
The best movie — Carlos sole

Mainstream Porn
★★★★
Its just porn released through mainstream media. The characters have no depth, which makes sense because how are the characters going to evolve if they keep having sex in every scene or pretend to be brooding in the rest. No wonder this used to be a fanfiction of Twilight. Christian Grey is the adult version of Edward Cullen with BDSM thrown in. — LemonEmpire

Better than the first
★★★★
I thought this one was definitely better than the first one. It had more of a real relationship and some good edge of your seat drama. I'd totally watch it again — Raven's Gate

Much better!
★★★★★
I was very disappointed in the first film. This one stayed true to the books. Much better! — *Kierra*

Dissatisfied
★★★★★
I rented the 1 st movie and was surprised I liked it. I never read the books. Not a romance reader. I did enjoy the first movie- but this?? Total crap 💩. Can already see the sequel and seems to me this flick was to set up the 3rd movie. That 1 if done well I think will be a major improvement. Basically soft porn. 💄💋👄👅👥 — Gamer holdem

Needs Different Actors
★★★★★
Acting sucked but the story is descent. — dddgry

Bad at best.
★★★★★

Books better but not disappointed ☺️
★★★★★
Yessss 💖💖🙌🏻🙌🏻🙌🏻 — Cbearbarcenas

Unrated is the way to go
★★★★
The theatrical version was disappointing and felt rushed. The unrated version is sooo much better and gives those little extra details that help you connect to the story. It's too bad they didn't just go with the unrated, the movie would've gotten much better reviews. The movies are really good for people who enjoyed the books, if you didn't read them I don't think you can really appreciate the movies. And Dakota Johnson is excellent in her role. — Jojom28

So Romantic and Sexy
★★★★★
OMG I LOVED THOS MOVIE! It was so much better than the first because they show more of the romance, love, and sex. It's amazing! — TORTURECHAMBER37

Loved the movie!
★★★★★
Don't get the haters of this movie. Think it was very entertaining and very hot. Better than the first. If you're not a fan of the books, probably will not enjoy the movie. If you loved the book, you will love the movie. Thought the unrated version was way better. — marlittle

Just Awful
★★★★★
Unless you are amongst the most die-hards of the genre's target audience, don't bother. It's really tedious. — PalmTree29

What a difference
★★★★★
The Unrated version of this film is 100000x better. I watched both versions & did not like the rated version AT ALL. My first watch was with the Unrated & loved it. My second watch was with theatrical and I stopped it right away & didn't care to finish. Honestly should of released this movie the Unrated way 💯 — Nate Prettyboy

Boring
★★★★★
This book had so much passion...even beyond sex. This movie was flat. The charaters reacted like they were bored of there lives so let have sex. I was so disappointed with sence where he went submissive. — jennie38

Meh
★★★★
Porn. That's all this is. — Warlar

1 star for the actors who gave their all to...
★★★★
..this snoozefest. This was painfully predictable, wooden, and sexual tension even though there was alot of bump and grind with toys added. I mean, even the sad parts and so-called scary parts packed an impactless punch. — Feminine Divine

Loved the movie!!!!!! Can't wait for 50 shades freed!!!! ❤️❤️❤️❤️❤️ — _lovely12

Dakota Johnson a shades worse
★★★★★
Johnson is an inexperienced actress. To put her up with Jamie Dornan is an insult. Without him these movies are nothing but smut. She's soooo bad and unbelievable!! — Ea/san diego

Terrible
★★★★
Complete trash, just like E.L. James. — ChenZhiMeiCA

What a joke
★★★★
Dont care for the movie but 9% is laughable when "get out" gets 99% — Rottentomatoes is a joke

The sequel was terrible! The chemistry between the actors was not there. The first one was way better! Disappointed in the film! Not sure how the next one will turn out, but hopefully better! — MANIFESTATIONS

Interesting
★★★★★
Was pretty good. A bit long, probably should had made it into a TV series instead but great on making that money! — Nicky77756855775

Fifty Shades Of Fantastic
★★★★★
With the release of the Unrated Digital & Blu Ray DVD James Foley has made the Darker even better. If that's possible. Amazing extended scenes and cut scenes bring more to an already marvelous movie. Fifty Shades Darker was Beyond my expectations. So brilliant. Dakota Johnson and Jamie Dornan have so much chemistry they light every scene on fire. The screenwriter didn't forget the fans and made sure those pivotal scene are there. Every emotion went through me watching FSDarker. I cried, I laughed, I felt their pain. Definitely a movie I'd see more than once. I also loved the supporting Cast. We actually get to see their friends & family and they actually have more than one line. Marcia Gay Harden As Christian's Mother was cast so perfectly. She truly is an amazing Actress. She bought me to tears. Thank You, E.J. James for writing this wonderful, beautiful love story of Christian & Anastasia. And Thank You Dakota Johnson & Jamie Dornan for bringing these characters to life. — NJ423

Great game and not forgyvcvy very Go you gytry great — Mardgjhfddfyyyhfdfgffchj

This movie gets zero stars from me 👎🏻
★★★★
This is one of the worst moves I've ever seen. I'm so glad I rented it and didn't waste my money in a theater. The sex scenes that are supposed to be hot and sexy aren't. The actors have zero chemistry. It's like watching 2 blank spaces together. The books were 1 million times better then this trash. — jen108

Fifty Shades Darker 💕🌹
★★★★★
Despite the many negative reviews that follow this trilogy, I actually enjoyed the books and the movie adaptations. This movie is much better than Fifty Shades Of Grey. Although I will say the unrated version is 10x better than the theatrical. More excitement, danger, and surprises leaves you wanting more. So fulfilling as a fan of Fifty Shades! Can't wait for Freed! 🍿 — jadedpayne

So much better than the theatrical version
★★★★
It's not always going to be perfect, considering the fact that books to movies will never be what you imagined, but with all the crap this franchise gets, the unrated version here is SOOOO much better than the theatrical version. If you love the books and don't care about the critics, this version is so much more cohesive and fulfilling! Enjoy it! — ch3ssa

great movie
★★★★★
They did a great job making the second Fifty Shades. Normally when sequals come out they always get try to hard and loose themselves in getting great reviews. They story was plaid well, not over done it was as if they were saying the story themselves. Great job! — Kris6187

Oh what the hell
★★★★
The first 45 minutes is just painfully slow. And the entire movie is brief talking and sex.. its awful. Why did I rent this .. — SamanthaJewel

Fantastic
★★★★★

Unrated version is 10x better than theatrical — thata1980
