Buy it... if you reliably appreciate cheap electronic action and suspense no matter how mundane or underdeveloped, because the vaguely melodic character portions of this score leave practically no impression.

Avoid it... if you had high hopes that Danny Elfman would resurrect his stylishly engaging musical personality of Fifty Shades of Grey that was diminished in Fifty Shades Darker, as each entry's music has yielded less stimulation than the one before.

Elfman
Fifty Shades Freed: (Danny Elfman) It doesn't seem to matter how soundly critics thrash the tawdry movies inspired by the already questionable E.L. James "Fifty Shades" novels; audiences continue to forgive the absolute idiocy of the plots and, for the third and supposedly final installment, Fifty Shades Freed in 2018, they afforded the franchise hundreds of millions of dollars in additional profits. The story of this entry attempts to satisfy everything the predominantly female audience fantasizes about: commitment, marriage, children, and naughty sexual deviancy sprinkled in between. Not only does Fifty Shades Freed continue exploring the kinkiness of bondage, discipline, dominance and submission, and sadomasochism, but it furthers the previous story's push into mediocre action as well. The two leading newlyweds, Ana and Christian, return to the gloominess of Seattle to face old foes, thwarting kidnappings and extortion in between scenes of unrepentant physical pleasures not sanctioned by most churches. If not for the nudity and BDSM, this kind of schlock would be best suited for the realm of television. At least the accelerated production of this movie, shot back-to-back with the prior year's Fifty Shades Darker, theoretically concludes the suffering for everyone not enamored with the cheap narrative excuse to push the psychology of sex. Composer Danny Elfman continues his work for the franchise and remains one of the more notably accomplished artists involved. Certainly, the veteran composer must realize the hideousness of these productions, and one can hope that he remains attached to them as mere means to solidify protests against him from the evil forces of organized religion in America. These projects have always been collaborations between Elfman and David Buckley, some of the concept's more memorable music actually the work of the ghostwriter. Their music transitioned from enticingly erotic in Fifty Shades of Grey to indecisively mundane in Fifty Shades Darker, the stylish appeal of the first score's personality largely lost as the plotlines delved into action-oriented intrigue rather than the intimate discoveries of the characters' competing interpersonal goals. By the time of Fifty Shades Freed, the kink factor has largely gone flaccid, and Elfman is left supplying ambient music to conversational and suspense scenes while continuing to dodge extensive song placements.
