Bound: DVD Review
Released by Vendetta Films
There is a great movie called Bound.
Sadly, this film is not the version with Jennifer Tilly and Gina Gershon, but a straight to DVD release aimed at cashing in on the success of Fifty Shades of Grey.
Buffy the Vampire Slayer star Charisma Carpenter is Michelle, the daughter of a wealthy real estate owner who falls for a younger man played by Bryce Draper. Who happens to have an S&M Dungeon that he introduces her to awakening her inner BDSM desires (sound familiar?)
But this awakening causes more than a few problems...
Terribly acted with no real chemistry between Draper and Carpenter, one suspects the main reason some will go for this is a topless Charisma Carpenter. Dialogue and story are certainly non-existent and the sex scenes, such as they are, are nothing titillating or exciting.
In fact, this Bound is tied up by its own pretensions - a clear cash in on the EL James Fifty Shades trilogy and a film that lacks any actual bite at all, its only saving grace is its short run time.
