Review - Magic Mike 2012The Ringer's Chris Ryan and Kevin O'Connor review Magic Mike, the latest film starring Channing Tatum. In the review, you will find out what they thought of the movie, the casting, and what to look for in a role in the future for Channing Tatum.
The Ringer gave the movie three stars. It had the best parts but not the best story line, the supporting characters, or the overall plot. The storyline was a bit confusing but it felt very corny and over the top. Channing Tatum did not have a good time in the movie, and the acting was just okay. There were no major standout performances in this movie, but Channing Tatum does have some good moments.
The biggest reason why the movie failed is because Reuben, Reuben! It is a movie that was made by two guys who are in love with each other, but then Reuben ends up taking a woman (Reuben) while he's with Reuben! That is a plot point that does not work and it was really bad!
Another problem that Magic Mike did have is that it was a bit too long. It took way too long for this movie to get going, which was frustrating for me because I really wanted to see how things would turn out from the beginning. If it was so great, why didn't they tell us more of what was going on and how things would turn out?
The most positive thing about Magic Mike was the fact that Reuben was great in the movie. The problem was that Channing Tatum and his wife, Scarlett Johansson were not. They were not convincing as they made Reuben seem like he was in control of everything, but Reuben ended up doing way too much. The movie just ended up being too long.
MAGIC MIKE IS GREAT MOVIEIn conclusion, Reuben is not the greatest actor, but he was good enough for me to think he was a nice guy. The acting in this movie sucked though, so that was another point I had a problem with. Overall, it was a pretty bad movie.
For those of you who liked Magic Mike, you will be happy to know that there is a sequel coming soon. This is something you should definitely check out. Also, the movie was recently ranked higher on my "Movie List" so you can see it too if you don't want to waste your time in reading a review like Reuben's!
Reuben's review is my opinion only and should not be taken as factual information. Anyone who reads Reuben's review is doing so for entertainment only and not for factual purposes. I recommend this movie for women, but not for men.
So I hope you enjoyed the movie, and it was not a disaster for you! Just remember, Magic Mike was not a movie I would recommend to a guy! Enjoy the movie, but do not see it for what it is!
