The Fifty Shades of Grey film has been met with mixed reviews by Valentine’s viewers in Northampton today.
While one cinemagoer said it was like “a Walt Disney film,” and another said they were “disappointed by the ending,” more than one viewer said they “thoroughly enjoyed it” and some are already looking forward to a sequel.
Based on the erotic novel by E.L. James, ticket sales for the film, which was released yesterday (Friday) have already grossed more than £5 million across the UK.
It was screened more 30 times in Northampton yesterday: 18 times at Vue in Sol Central, and 16 times at Cineworld in Sixfields.
There was a mixture of opinion among cinemagoers who celebrated Valentine’s Day today watching the film at the Sol Central cinema.
Vicki Wright said: “It wasn’t as detailed as the book, but it was a good watch.”
Arooj Shah, who came from Portsmouth to see the film with her friend, Kobiha Jeevaratnam, said: “There were some funny bits to it, but I didn’t really like the ending.”
