First the film is taglined the "World Phenomenon", which to that I say malarkey. Second at the end it says featuring an exclusive version of Beyonce's song "Crazy in Love", which to that I say who the f*** cares. As if anyone is going to care about an exclusive remix of a song that is 11 years old and not the kinky BDSM weird sex scenes.
Moving away from the marketing bull and on to brass tacks. The film actually looks decent and fun. Both leads seem serious in their potrayals and not going for the cheese factor. Maybe it is going to be a romantic journey filled with dark secrets and emotionally painful sexual moments. Who knows it might actually be worth the wait.
