DVD & Blu Ray: Magic Mike (15)
Saturday 24 November 2012
Matthew McConaughey, after his louche turn in Killer Joe, once again excels as an ageing, preening stripper in Steven Soderbergh's lightweight drama.
Channing Tatum plays Magic Mike, an amiable hunk who leads a troupe of male strippers (their moves are slightly fruitier than The Full Monty) and takes lost 19-year-old Adam (Alex Pettyfer) under his wing. He's also rather taken by Adam's stern sister (Cody Horn). An undemanding tale that lacks the bite and wit of, say, American Gigolo and Boogie Nights.
