“..watching "Magic Mike," you feel a lot like those two girls: skeptical at first, perhaps a little embarrassed, but before you know it, you're having a blast..”
by Barbara VanDenburgh [Arizona Republic]
2.5 of 5

“..unfortunately for everyone involved, it's fodder that's best left forgotten..”
by Courtney Howard [Very Aware]
“..this breezy offering ought to be subtitled "How Steven Got His Groove Back," as its typically high-minded director drops pretentions like tear-away pants..”
by Peter Debruge [Variety]
3 of 4

“..the storyline is derivative but there's enough to like about Magic Mike to make that more of a minor irritant than a major distraction..”

“..funny, exhilarating, down-and-dirty celebration of a different breed of costumed superstud..”
by Kathleen Murphy [MSN Movies]
Review rate : B+

“..a very mainstream film, a hit right to the sweet spot. But, it's full of heart, and it seems likely that audiences will fall under Mike's spell too..”
by Kate Walsh [The Playlist]
“..a beefcake bonanza with heart as well as muscle..”
by David Rooney [Hollywood Reporter]

MALL :

SUMMER OF BLOOD :

“..Summer of Blood tries very hard to be cool, but instead comes off as strained and aloof, with a number of satiric targets it could have aimed for but just bypasses altogether..”
by Drew Taylor [The Playlist]

THE CULTURE HIGH :

“..an amateurish hand is in the term-paper-like voice-over narration and the inclusion of underqualified talking heads..”
by Martin Tsai [LA Times]

“.."Rudderless" is a competent, well-acted melodrama, yet in scope and ambition it has the modest and serviceable scale of the small, not silver, screen..”

YOUNG ONES :

“..unfortunately this film is equally dusty, with a mishmash of ideas and self-conscious execution..”
