RJG Rating- 85
Mike ,a male stripper introduces his new friend into the business.
Starring- Channing Tatum,Alex Pettyfer,Cody Horn
Director- Steven Soderbergh
This is a complete Channing Tatum powered movie.From the start to finish hes in control of the movie.He might not be the greatest actor in the business ,but hes very convincing.All the supporting actors are good and help Channing push the movie forward.Alex Pettyfer was average ,Matthew McConaughey was good.
The story for Magic Mike isnt much different from that of movies like ,women themed strip dancing movies.Its sort of predictable and there are not many twists.But in no way is the story dull.The story captures most point of views of the business.The story of 2 men ,one an amateur and the other nearing the end his of career ,was an interesting contrast.
Direction by Steven was excellent.He crafted a movie with a simple story into an interesting movie that keeps both male & female audience engaged.The movie had a balanced dose of comedy ,drama ,dance and a bit of romance too.
Overall,Magic Mike is a fun and enjoyable movie for the adult audience.
