Channing Tatum (Step Up) sizzles as the irresistible Magic Mike – the shining star act in ‘Xquisite’ – a steamy men’s dance show. Along with his mentor, Dallas (Matthew McConaughey, Tropic Thunder), Mike takes young dancer ‘Kid’ (Alex Pettyfer, I am Number Four) under his wing to school him in the fine arts of partying, picking up women and making easy money!
From director Steven Soderburg (Ocean’s Eleven) Magic Mike is a hedonistic thrill-ride jam-packed with stunning moves, shimmering six-packs and the kind of relentless entertainment guaranteed to satisfy!
Inspired by leading man Channing Tatum’s real-life background in male stripping, before he hit it big in the movies, Magic Mike is an accomplished, rounded slice of often-delicious entertainment. It’s also the kind of film that’s set to be enjoyed time and time again.
At the heart of it are a bunch of men who strip for a living. They include a buffed-up Matthew McConaughey, the aforementioned Tatum, and the new young entrant to their profession, played by Alex Pettyfer. Each of them is convincing in their roles, and looking non-too-shabby.
Yet Magic Mike, directed by Steven Soderbergh, has far more in its locker than a straight hour or two of men taking their clothes off. The film digs into the lives of the leading men when they’re off the stage, in the case of Tatum’s lead character, the difficulty of romance, too. That makes Magic Mike both deeper and a little uneven, certainly. But its proverbial finger is never far from the entertainment button.
The disc release is hardly exhaustive, but it does have extra behind the scenes material that’s worth taking a look at. It’s all got a promotional sheen on it, and it’s disappointing the extras don’t go much further than that. But Magic Mike is still a fine release, and a strong film. --Jon Foster

This is an extremely enjoyable film. Yes, it has hot guys with fit bodies and amazing dance routines. But also an enjoyable story too. The seedier side of this life is touched on but does not take over the film. Channing Tatum is amazing in this and he can certainly move, and of course we know this is loosely based on his time as a real-life stripper. Alex Pettifer and Matthew McConnaughey are also very good.
Easy watching, enjoyable and full of guys who are easy on the eye. Great entertainment! The DVD even has some extended dance scenes and a dance play mode where you can watch just the dance routines. What's not to like?!
The story is basically about a guy, Adam, a slacker who moves to Tampa to find work whilst sleeping on his sister's couch. On his first day of work at a construction site, he meets Mike, who is less than pleased to be working with him. The very same evening, Adam is wandering the streets and bumps into Mike outside a club and after a some persuasion, Mike agrees to get Adam in. Mike decides to string Adam along, subtley getting him to help draw in customers for that night's show in return for a little money. When Adam finds out what sort of business Mike is in, he's startled to say the least, but after a small taste in the limelight and lots of money to show for it, Adam decides to give it a real go. Mike and Adam soon become the best of buds, but it's not long before they run into some trouble.
The acting was absolutely brilliant in this film, not to mention the tantalisingly sexy dancing.Read more ›
The story however is not as deep or as philosophical as it thinks it is or as Soderbergh thinks he can make it but it is slightly more enticing than your average rom-com lets say. And kudos to Channing Tatum, who for someone i have unjustly discriminated against in the past, really is quite fantastic in this. Not to mention Matthew McConaughey who is sensational as a 'T.J. Mackey light' person of some merit to the scripts neat dialogue.
Magic Mike isn't revelatory but it does feel somewhat real and fluent in telling a basic rags to riches story and then turning that idea on it's head near the end. Theres too much titillation in this medium.. so, hell!, its time the ladies enjoyed the moment.
Loosely based on Tatum's own time as a dancer, `Magic Mike' is a film that has a sense of realism to it. The club is not huge, the audiences of adequate size - perhaps the dances themselves are a little over sold, but for the most part this is a typical Stephen Soderbergh kitchen sink type of drama, but with more baby oil. For the 20 minutes of oiled up men, you get 70 minutes of talking and mumbling to one another.
The spectacle of the dances is great - I am sure some people will appreciate them a lot. Tatum in particular shows off his prowess as a former dancer, the likes of Kevin Nash show that he was a former wrestler and can't really dance. It is the drama elements of the film that let it down. There is a central romance that fails to sizzle as the film is too downbeat and the female lead (Cody Horn) is dull. With no impetus between the dance set pieces, the film feels like a series of sparkling ups and then smack down into the doldrums. Soderbergh needed to hang more plot onto the dance sections, rather than shedding the story off like a pair of Velcro lined trousers.
Dancing, blokes, oil. You should probably watch it in HD for the maximum fun-age. My partner and her friends also liked the extras, in particular the one that just shows all the dances back to back.
