About Steven Soderbergh
...I hate to sound like a broken record but...Having just seen Magic Mike...! Soderbergh continues his artistic decline. The film is completely dead- aside from the dance scenes which derive (some) energy from the blasting music and the game performers. But the dramatic scenes are handled with such, what's the word, apathy-on both sides of the camera: The script is strictly cookie-cutter. Soderbergh's direction is nonexistent. And the acting, save for McConaughey, is throw-away. Cody Horn takes the cake and delivers one of THE worst performances I've ever witnessed. And eventually even the dance scenes wear out their welcome...and that's when the film truly becomes...NOTHING.
