Set in the world of male strippers, Magic Mike is directed by Steven Soderbergh (Erin Brockovich, Traffic), who brings his usual style and intelligence to this hugely entertaining film. The film follows Mike (Tatum) as he takes a young dancer called The Kid (Pettyfer) under his wing and introduces him to tricks of the trade. But as he begins to recognise the limitations of his hedonistic life, Mike begins to question his career and life choices.
‘This is terrific entertainment with a sideline in wry melancholia and testosterone-fuelled philosophy.’ – Kim Newman, Empire ****
