Magic Mike didn’t need his last dance. Warner Bros should have kept the franchise alone and not ruin it with this slow and cheap disaster.
In fact, the movie is a disappointing finale to a franchise that started off strong. It lacks the charm, humor, and depth of its predecessors, and instead relies on cheap thrills and clichés. The plot is thin and predictable, the characters are underdeveloped and forgettable, especially Mike’s new protégés who are nothing more than stereotypes. The dialogue is cringeworthy, full of lines that make no sense or try too hard to be funny. Even director Steven Soderbergh‘s work looks ridiculously cheap in this installment.
However, the only saving grace is Channing Tatum’s charisma and dance moves, but even those get old after a while especially when he’s not really dancing anymore. If you’ve seen Finding Magic Mike on HBO Max, you’ve already seen most of this movie.
Magic Mike’s Last Dance is a waste of time and talent that should have stayed retired, or behind the scenes.
Should you watch it?
Short Answer: No. The movie takes everything that works from the first 2 installments and throws it out. Instead, you get a half-baked low budget script that aims for romance and ends up being a cheap promo for the live show.
Where can I watch it?
Magic Mike’s Last Dance is now streaming on Max in USA and Crave in Canada.
