Over the top Unrealistic and toxic movie

Worst movie (in fact the whole serie is the WORST) ever that has hilarious/funny lines. As we know that movies escape from reality and they will never show realistic things (1. they can't and 2.Movies love to be overly dramatic ; like i mean over the top). This movie and the whole serie is a perfect example (I am going to talk about this movie and the whole serie together). What is unrealistic in this whole series is 1. love/romance (in reality no Mafia dude is going to love you like Massimo loved Laura bc that never happens but only happens in movies) , 2. a so called good looking Mafia dude (he really isn't good looking he just looks like a ordinary man to be honest) 3. the portrayal/depiction of abuse/rape, sexual assault,BDSM and Stockholm Syndrome 4.Sex. What is realistic in this movie is the simulated sex. Sex is completely faked in this whole series (the actors DID NOT have REAL SEX at all in the scenes and on the set) ; Movie Magic remember ! There was an intimate coordinator during the scene, the sex is choreographed and most important of all the actors used prosthetics/modesty garments/pillows and other tools to avoid/stop genital contact (and to create an illusion of sex). This is how sex is simulated in movies. The whole series does use Visual Effects such as Computer Generated Imagery . The sounds in the whole serie (such as the heavy breathing/ moaning and groaning sounds of Massimo and Laura in the sex scenes are fake/acted out). But these sounds are also exaggerated/manipulated by sound engineers and the sound team/crew to make it look like the characters are having a so called passionate sex when they are actually not. This whole series does depict sexual assault, abuse, rape and even coercion . But the way this movie expresses it is unrealistic. People who escaped from their abusers and sex trafficking experienced even worst/dangerous and scary sexual assault, abuse, rape ( some people tried to escape but couldn't bc they got killed or ended up in even more trouble). But the people who did escape they will say that what they experienced was more realistic than what this whole series shows and what they experienced was nowhere near what this whole series expresses. The abuse in this whole series is not sexy at all but it is very disgusting/horrifying. The production team of this whole series made it look sexy bc of putting a so called go looking mafia dude in it + the dramatic fake sex scenes and the sounds of the characters during the sex scenes exaggerated it to keep the audience engaged in the movie. I personally feel like the whole series needs to be aware of how they express/the way they depict BDSM, Stockholm Syndrome, sexual assault and abuse bc it might be sending a wrong message to the audience. The depiction of BDSM, SS and abuse in this whole series is absolutely unrealistic/ misleading. Also the romance/drama between the mafia dude and laura is really funny/unrealistic (i felt like I was watching rom-com animation or something Lol ). This whole series gives a wrong/dangerous and toxic message to young women and teen girls that a if a bad boy who looks good looking (like Massimo or should look good looking like him) sexually abuses/tortures you that means love (Lol not even close). Again no bad boy (BTW this bad boy thing is a stereotype thanks to movies like 50 shades of Grey, Twilight and after 1/2 ) looks good looking (especially Mafia dudes or any gangster dude at all , this is the reality). This whole sequel promotes gender stereotypes to. I will say this to the production crew of this movie that if you want to present the idea of BDSM, Stockholm syndrome, sexual abuse/assault try to present the idea a little bit more realistic and not unrealistic at all. This whole sequel is making fun of people who have BDSM, Stockholm Syndrome, people who escaped from sex trafficking/from their abusers this is unacceptable and this things should not be considered as a form of entertainment at all.

This title has:

Too much sex
