Fifty Shades Freed | 2018 | R | - 10.4.5

In this sequel the new Mr. and Mrs. Grey (Jamie Dorman and Dakota Johnson) struggle to reconcile the gaps in their financial and cultural backgrounds while they fight the unwelcome ghosts of their past and engage in explicit sexual activity. Also with Eric Johnson, Arielle Kebbel, Luke Grimes, Eloise Mumford, Rita Ora and Marcia Gay Harden. Directed by James Foley. [1:45]

SEX/NUDITY 10 - A shirtless man (we see his bare chest, abdomen and back) blindfolds and shackles a woman's wrists and ankles to an upright frame (she is wearing a skimpy lace bra and thong underwear) and pulls down her bra and kisses and bites her nipples as she groans and gasps (we see her bare breasts, abdomen and upper thighs); he then applies a large buzzing vibrator on her shoulders, between her breasts, and then between her thighs several times as she begins to shout, and he then abruptly stops, unbuckles the shackles and she becomes angry and stomps away. A shirtless man (we see his bare chest, abdomen and back) approaches his wife in the kitchen: she is wearing a knee-length robe and she spoons ice cream onto her chest twice, licking it off, then spoons some onto his chest and rubs it down to his groin, the camera pans up and the man pushes down her head (indicating oral sex below the frame) and he gasps; he pulls off her robe to reveal a slip, sits her on a table and spoons ice cream on her inner thigh, licks it off and begins to lick the genital area (it's concealed by her slip and the camera cuts to her gasping face) and he leans her back on a table and thrusts (we see his back and bare buttocks moving) as the scene ends. A husband lays his wife on her back on a bed (she is wearing a slip that ends mid-thigh) and we see his chest, back and buttocks as he lowers a sexual aid to her groin below the frame; she writhes and he lies between her thighs, thrusting and the scene ends. A shirtless man removes a lace beach cover up from his wife, who wears a bikini, and he removes the top (we see her breasts), places her onto a bed and handcuffs her wrists to her ankles with cuffs and chains, kisses her, bends between her legs and thrusts as the scene ends. A woman pulls over in a car and kisses her husband passionately, then climbs onto his lap as we see the lace top of her thigh high hose and she thrusts up and down for several seconds as they both gasp.
 A woman wearing a bikini bottom lies on a beach chair on a crowded beach (we see the side of one breast and later the breast and nipple along with bare thighs and lower legs); she later sits up and her breasts and nipples are seen until her husband covers her with a towel. A nude man in profile is shown in a shower from his head to the top of the buttocks and pubic area; his wife enters the shower and we see her nude from head to navel as she stands behind him and reaches for his crotch below the frame (he gets out of the shower) and we briefly see their bare buttocks. A woman wears a large towel wrapped around her, revealing cleavage; she removes the towel and we see breasts and nipples, along with thong underwear as she puts on a bra and panty hose.
 We see close-ups of various body parts: a bare female shoulder, bare male shoulders, a bare female thigh and female breasts and nipples, and a man's bare buttocks and thighs as he lies between a woman's bare buttocks and thighs while thrusting (we do not see genitals). A long shot shows the bare back of a man who is thrusting, his buttocks and legs covered with a sheet (we do not see a woman). At home a husband places his hand under the skirt of his wife and begins to lift one finger toward her crotch as the camera cuts to her face; she twitches and the scene ends.
 A man and a woman in a deep bubble bath reveal bare shoulders and we see her bare back briefly as she leans to embrace him. A man and a woman kiss passionately for several seconds in three scenes (one scene is during their wedding). A man and a woman kiss briefly in several scenes. A woman keeps touching a man on the shoulder, wrist, hand and arm; the man's wife tells the woman to stop making eyes at him and to keep her hands to herself.
 A woman sits with her back to the camera while wearing a corset and thong underwear (we see bare thighs and full buttocks). A blurry long shot shows dozens of women wearing bikinis on a beach (we can see some cleavage, bare abdomens and bare thighs). Two scenes include several women wearing low-cut blouses and dresses that reveal cleavage. A woman lies in bed wearing only bikini underwear and her arms cover her chest. A woman purchases a very short dress with a neckline that ends at the waist to expose cleavage, while the back is cut to the top of the buttocks. A shirtless man wears knee-length shorts or jeans in several scenes. A painting of a female torso shows breasts and indistinct nipples. A small armless female statue in a home includes breasts with no nipples.
 Several scenes take place in a bondage dungeon where pain devices like whips, chains, and restraints hang on walls. A woman opens a drawer and we briefly see half a dozen glass and rubber sexual devices.
 We hear that a man used a sex tape to blackmail a woman.

VIOLENCE/GORE 4 - A man slaps a woman hard in the face twice, knocks her to the pavement, and kicks her in the stomach (she is pregnant and the baby is OK later); the injured woman shoots the man in the knee, knocking him to the pavement as he grunts and she falls back and lies unconscious with blood around her mouth. A woman arrives home where a man grabs her and holds a knife to her throat until another man and woman (they're bodyguards) point guns at him and the female guard beats the man and knocks him to the floor; she holds him down and we see blood streaming from his mouth.
 We see a cell phone photo of a woman bound and gagged and when her friend sees the photo a man threatens the friend over the phone that she needs to bring him money or he will kill the bound woman.
 A husband yells at his wife for becoming pregnant and she threatens to leave him. We hear that a man attacked a woman and she has a nightmare about the man coming up behind her and stroking her arm, and she is startle awake. We hear that a man broke into an office and set it on fire. We hear that a helicopter was sabotaged to crash. A man tells a woman he dreamed that she was dead, lying on a concrete sidewalk. A man and a woman argue several times, once to the point of shouting while the woman cries.
 A woman is taken into an ER on a gurney and we see blood on her mouth and cheek; we later see her in a hospital bed with an oxygen tube at her nose; her eye is blackening and her cheek is abraded and we see a square of gauze taped to her forearm. We see the image of an ultrasound with a fetus. A man and a woman briefly visit a small cemetery in the rain.
 A woman runs to a washroom stall and behind the door and we hear her vomit and flush the toilet (we hear that she is pregnant).

CAVEATS

Be aware that while we do our best to avoid spoilers it is impossible to disguise all details and some may reveal crucial plot elements.

We've gone through several editorial changes since we started covering films in 1992 and older reviews are not as complete & accurate as recent ones; we plan to revisit and correct older reviews as resources and time permits.

Our ratings and reviews are based on the theatrically-released versions of films; on video there are often Unrated, Special, Director's Cut or Extended versions, (usually accurately labelled but sometimes mislabeled) released that contain additional content, which we did not review.
