‘Magic Mike’ Movie Review – More Than Softcore

Jordan Magrath

Jordan, who currently resides in Seattle, WA, has slowly become a film fanatic over the past couple of years. He attributes his love for film to the smash hit THE DARK KNIGHT which has created an (un)healthy obsession with both Christopher Nolan and the Batman franchise. Although he appreciates all genres of film, his favorite movies are typically psychological thrillers, with an emphasis on non-traditional narratives.

    The language was disgusting.  Every sentance was the “F” word.  Two of us walked out shortly into the movie.   I hope a lot of teenagers miss this so called movie…

  2. I’m so glad you enjoyed Magic Mike! I already thought I was going to enjoy it because the trailer looked great, but I thought it was even better than I expected. It was funny, the story was compelling.

    I also agree with you that this is one of my favorite Channing Tatum movies (although I haven’t seen 21 Jump Street), he was really great in this. Matthew McConaughey was brilliant and I also liked Alex Pettyfer. 

    And I love that you even enjoyed the dancing, haha! I was like even stripping aside, this is an awesome show.

  3. It definitely deserves the R-rating (like I said), but with the material, I think I’d rather see it be more risky rather than playing it safe for a PG-13 rating.

    I give the film a lot of props for keeping me entertained even though it was a stripper movie.
