In some ways an inversion of its predecessor, this film is complete fantasy fulfillment, for both the performers, who are now crafting on-stage personas to match their real ambitions, as well as their audiences. The Kings of Tampa, reunited for one last score, attempt to both relive the past and remodel themselves as they leave it behind. A victory lap.
The men look great in next to nothing (yes, no peen here). The next best thing about this needless sequel is its perpetually cheer and inclusivity. It portrays a community existing to allow women to indulge in some lustful gazing; a public place to celebrate their desires in the most colourful way. It features two sexy and funny roles from Jada Pinkett and Andie Macdowell (!). What's not to like about that!
MMXXL didn't wanted for a sec to be something huge,with fake expectations and cuz of that this flick works so fuckin great.A ridiculously,truly funny story that jumps three years after the events of the first movie.Things have changed,some characters have disappeared but those have been replaced inspired with several new interesting characters. Very energetic,great soundtrack/acting...pure(male) enterteiment. 9/10
One of the most fun films I've seen lately. I thought the first one was garbage, trying to remain funny and dramatic at the same time, but this one just went all in on the entertainment level. Story-wise this was pretty mediocre, as expected, but the dance scenes and soundtrack were just amazing. I'm not even ashamed to give this 4 stars.
This film has a far less interesting storyline than the original and suffers from some sloppy directing, but all is redeemed by Tatum's charm and incredible dancing (he is truly a delight to watch). It's a good time, but not a great movie. MAGIC MIKE XXL could have done without the Amber Heard character and subplot and greater focus on the relationship between the dudes.
