magic-mike-xxl“I mean, if this really is our last ride, what if we make up some new routines? ” – Mike

Number of Times Seen – 1 (21 Jun 2016)

Brief Synopsis – Mike rejoins the “entertainment” crew one more time as the travel to an interstate convention.

My Take on it – Similar to the first movie in this series, I had no desire to ever watch this film because I didn’t foresee there being anything interesting for me to watch.

The first movie had the mentor/recruit issue that made it somewhat fascinating to watch in order to understand the hows and whys of this business.

I’m sure that most women will enjoy watching this movie just to see all of the male flesh that gets exposed and after decades of movies of this type being solely geared towards men, I can understand why women would jump at the opportunity to try and watch this film, (or the original).

The main issue I had with this movie is the lack of a real and sensible plot and is therefore even less interesting than the original from that perspective.

In the end, I would have to say that I hope they stop making films in this franchise because it doesn’t seem to add anything to the vast knowledge films have bestowed upon us over the years.

If, on the other hand, you’re only seeking a movie filled with male flesh, here ya go, dig in!

Bottom Line – More pointless than the first movie and also less interesting. Women will love this because of the amount of male flesh that gets exposed, but men probably won’t find the dancing very interesting to watch. The original had the mentor/recruit vibe that made us understand the ins and outs of the industry, but this one just feels like they were trying to find an excuse to give these actors more exposure time.

MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – The first time Steven Soderbergh has been the cinematographer of a film he didn’t direct.  (From IMDB)

Rating – Razzie Worthy (4/10)
