Magic Mike review

A story with flex appeal

Channing Tatum stars in Magic Mike.

Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

Jake Wilson It is tempting to see Magic Mike as two films in one: the first a crowd-pleasing dramedy about a loveable loser, the second a chance for Soderbergh to amuse himself with surprising visual choices and transitions between scenes.

    This is probably the worst film I have ever seen, and I have being watching at least one a week for a very long time. It is the type of drivel that could only originate in a US film studio. The story line is weak, to say the least and the characters are very poorly developed. The actors must have been desperate for money to get involved in this. If you enjoy watching semi-clothed men cavort like prats then you will probably enjoy it. But you would have to pay me (a lot!) to watch it again. Surprised that in the UK it was awarded a 15 certificate, as it is almost soft porn and not suitable for young people. In short - RUBBISH. Don't waste your money. I've awarded half a star because it's not possible to award less than that on the system.

    Not just an embarrassment of gorgeous male bodies but a film with soul. Superficially a flesh fest but this film has depth and a few pertinent messages for us all. Channing's dancing is amazing !!!

    Yes Channing danced well, the story initially seemed to be going somewhere but it was like they got to a point and realised there really wasn't any story to tell. It was a girls night out but the movie was disappointing. Matthew McConaughey reminded me of Woody Harrelson. Basically the movie is crap... I wouldn't waste your money.

    Great movie, I laughed a lot and was touched by some of the more serious aspects. Plus channing Tatum is an amazing dancer- with or without his clothes
