Movie review: 'Magic Mike' (VIDEO/PHOTOS)
Stripped to its essentials, ‘Magic Mike’ is all fun
Steven Soderbergh makes movies about sexy subjects, then strips away the sexiness about them. He is fascinated by process, often to a clinical extent.
In recent years this has been true of “The Girlfriend Experience” (starring real-life porn star Sasha Grey as a high-priced Manhattan call girl), “Contagion” (about a viral outbreak that claims lives worldwide) and “Haywire” (featuring mixed-martial artist Gina Carano as a special-ops agent seeking revenge for a betrayal). Even the glitzy, star-studded “Ocean’s 11,” one of Soderbergh’s most pleasingly escapist films, takes its time laying out every detail of its ambitious Las Vegas casino heist.
