Magic Mike – **

Never thought I would ever watch a movie about male strippers! But this one got rave reviews and is directed by Steven Soderbergh, who at one time in movie history charmed me with movies like Out Of Sight and Traffic. And he charmed me again. The sepia coloured photography is super, the soundtrack is great and the acting is okay, especially by the lead actors Channing Tatum and Cody Horn, who I had not seen in any movie before.

The end however is abrupt and silly. It’s like the script writers ran out of ideas for a third act and then quickly added a few extra unnecessary scenes and finished it with a typical Hollywood ending that does not make sense at all. First half is great! Second half sucks. And the male bodies are ripped!
