Magic Mike XXL Review

Magic Mike XXL Review

**********Warning the following article may contain spoilers. You have been Warned!*******************


Three years after Mike bowed out of the stripper life at the top of his game, he and the remaining Kings of Tampa hit the road to Myrtle Beach to put on one last blow-out performance.

My Thoughts:

I really had no expectations when I went into this screening. I had screened Magic Mike when it first came out and wasn’t really impressed with that movie. So when the credits started to roll for Magic Mike XXL I was surprised to find myself pleasantly entertained. I would go and put myself out there and say that the sequel is better than the original.

The whole premise for the movie is pretty much a Male Entertainer road trip to Myrtle Beach for one last bang before they retire and move onto other things. Along the way the boys stop in Tampa to hang out with Mike who decides to join the boys as they head north.

I will say the ladies will not be disappointed  in this movie one bit for the eye candy that they will receive. Though I will have to say that no one goes full monty in this movie there is still plenty for ladies eyes to devour. I will say for the men that they do add more ladies in this movie but we do not get the types of views that we received in the first one but it is still very enjoyable for all to see.

And my god the cameos. Like I said in my previous review ( Ted 2) this is the summer of cameos and if used well cameos can be a good thing in a movie. And I have to say there is one cameo in particular that once I realized who it was and what he was doing I was totally amazed by his moves.

And then of course you have everyone’s favorite dancer tWitch who has seemingly been on everything. While watching this movie and seeing both tWitch and Channing Tatum on the screen doing there thing I was like this is the adult version of Step Up. I don’t care if you are male or female that last dance scene if you aren’t enjoying yourself (not that way) while watching it than you have an issue.

My Recommendation:

This is an enjoyable movie with eye candy for both sexes and you will be entertained. If nothing else take your girlfriend/wife to see this movie and I am sure you will be much appreciated.
