Trivia

Goofs

It's implied that Christian's room in his parent's house was his as a teenager and unused for some time (He says it was his room "once upon a time"). However, some of the books are too new to be his as a teenager: The book, "Kill City Blues", by Richard Kadrey, was published in 2013, when Christian would've been 25, and "A War of Gifts" by Orson Scott Card (2007), when he would've been 19.

The worst film I've ever seen
13 February 2017 | by See all my reviews

While not having particularly high expectations, it must be said, I did go into this film with an open mind. However only a few minutes in and I already felt the urge to leave and fill my brain with something less awful and mind rotting.

It's not just the non-existent plot and hammy acting that let this film down, although they were major factors, the chemistry between the two leads was like watching two planks of wood getting together. None of what I saw made me believe he was an irresistible sex god with a dark side. And with Ana, let's just say biting ones lip every time something is suggested gets a bit old.

Furthermore, without wanting to spoil, is her IQ supposed to be about 50? I have to ask because she pretty much agrees to everything he says, and not in a dom/sub kind of way, more just because she doesn't seem to have the mental ability to argue. You have to wonder how she's employed in the first place.

I've seen some absolutely dire films but I can honestly say this is the worst film I've ever seen.
