Magic Mike (2012)
Genre: Comedy, Drama
Another film that had a lot of hype and was recommended to me by others. Unfortunately, this one fails to deliver. I was expecting a funny, light-hearted chick flick that I could enjoy with a group of friends. However, the narrative was so dull that I swear I could have fallen asleep 😛 ! I kept waiting for something in the narrative to grab my attention and to suddenly be worthy of the hype…it wasn’t. The plots that it did have never finished off and the ending was a bit of “Is that all?” 😛 . Channing Tatum and Matthew McConaughey were good and were probably the only things keeping it from being a complete failure! The dancing sections were the best part (definitely for the choreography not just the men 😛 ). This is a huge disappointment with an unconvincing romance. I’m surprised there’s going to be a sequel . I’d wouldn’t recommend this unless you a huge fan of Channing Tatum 😛 . Enjoy 🙂 !
I give this film 1.5 Stars out of 5!
