Review: Mikey vs. Max - The Rematch (Movimus)

Mikey: "You ready for a rematch?"
Max: "Oh yeah, I've been ready for awhile."
With those words, we begin the action part of Mikey Hanlon vs. Max Anderson: The Rematch from Movimus. I really enjoyed the first match (reviewed yesterday), so hearing that exchange got me excited. It's nice to see Max tip his hand that this isn't just an ordinary match for him. It feels like something he's thought about and worked towards.

Mikey (22/5'9"/174-lbs) has swapped out his black briefs for tiny floral briefs that wash out against his skin for a very provocative and sexy look. I just love his physique, so the gear choice worked for me.

Max (27/5'11"/185-lbs) opts for brown, which are his worst choice of the three matches, but it's not a big deal. He stills looks good. In fact, both guys look exactly the same, so this could've been shot at the same time as the first match. However, with the gear change, we'll assume some time has passed.

The 27-minutes of action is tight and intense, with one wrestler dominating the final score. It's a focused and determined takedown and domination. Mikey has to avoid Max's legs, which he uses very effectively here. It's a great game of cat-and-mouse, with the mouse getting caught and forced to tap multiple times.

Between this and the first, I prefer the first, but this one's advantage is the decisive conclusion. I actually wrote a 'tie' scenario in an upcoming story, so thinking about this topic makes me question that decision. Ties usually suck. Anyway, no worries about that here.

Tomorrow, we close out the series with the third (and final?) match between the two guys. Of course I encourage feedback!



  1. Alex I can tell you that your reviews get me excited. So excited, in fact, that I am choosing not to rewatch the third match right now because I want to enjoy your review first. Thanks as always.

    1. You're welcome. I'm glad you liked it. This one was more of a Quick Hit, since I just talked about these guys yesterday. Hopefully you still feel as excited after reading tomorrow's review ...
