Fifty Shades Freed: 4K Ultra HD Blu-ray Review











The Movie:

Believing they have left behind shadowy figures from their past, newlyweds Christian (Jamie Dornan) and Ana (Dakota Johnson) fully embrace an inextricable connection and shared life of luxury. But just as she steps into her role as Mrs. Grey and he relaxes into an unfamiliar stability, new threats could jeopardize their happy ending before it even begins.

Finally the conclusion of this franchise has come around. These films haven’t really been the best but since I gave the other two a shot I was willing to do the same for the third one. Storywise, it’s so much of the same things that you’ve seen in the previous entries (which I had a problem with) but the one thing that I found a bit intriguing was the inclusion of sabotage (and other things) to Christian’s company. Unfortunately it didn’t play out or pay off like I would’ve hoped. That aspect of the story felt like it was from a typical soap opera. I really liked the cinematography in the film and there were certain moments like the car chase scene that made it feel like I was watching an action movie for a second there. It’s not really the best film out there but believe me I’ve seen waaaaaay worse. There are some moments that do seem interesting but they don’t explore them enough. If you’re a fan or have experienced the other films in the series then you’ll definitely want to get this one but if you’re more like me and don’t have a “connection” to the material then you’ll be left scratching your head as to why people like it. 6/10

4K Presentation:

The film actually looks really good in this format. There is some very nice clarity within every scene. The black levels are almost perfect and with there being plenty of scenes in darkness or low light it was a nice improvement. There was definitely no shortage of flesh in the film so seeing the details as far as skin texture and tone was a nice touch. Colors also look nice and vibrant and that is way more evident during the beach scene as well as the car chase scene.

Special Features:

The Final Climax – A BTS feature that goes in depth about the characters, story and also includes interviews with the cast.

Deleted Scene – One very brief scene that isn’t really too interesting.

Christian and Ana by Jamie and Dakota – The two main actors talk about their experience on the series.

A Conversation with E.L. James and Eric Johnson – A feature that looks at the series as a whole and how it was adapted into films.
