Magic Mike’s Last Dance Review
In this final instalment, Magic Mike takes his last dance as he follows a wealthy socialite named Max (Salma Hayek), who hires him to do a special job for her. Max is in the middle of a divorce, and she wants to reclaim who she is. In doing so, she wants to revamp the outdated play in place at The Rattigan Theatre to something more empowering. She wants Mike to help recapture the magic of the night they spent together through dance. By creating a story dipped in female fantasy. Women’s desires are all wrapped up in this one play that Max and Mike design. Mike teaches intimacy, consent, connection and appreciation of women through dance. There is no stripping without an intimate connection with women in the audience, and that’s what makes Magic Mike’s Last Dance so entertaining to watch.
Channing Tatum and Salma Hayek have incredible chemistry together. It felt so natural and playful that their relationship was so believable as business partners and lovers. Steven Soderbergh ended the trilogy on a high note as he explored human connection through dance and women’s desires by unifying them in the audience with the stage performance. Soderbergh’s direction worked for the women in the audience watching the movie and the women in the film watching the theatrical performance. There are some gorgeous shots when framing the dance sequences, and Soderbergh made you feel everything with the characters. The Magic Mike trilogy has closed out in the best way possible. It was a deconstruction of what male stripping looked like, whether it was done for the money or to have fun and get women. Now, they made it more meaningful for women to reclaim the fantasy for themselves.
