Storyline

When the world of male strippers and diamond smugglers collide the outcome is not what you'd expect. A comedy with European flair and gun-toting theatrics, 'Magic Boys' is chock-full of action and unremitting twists and turns. When two male strippers mysteriously disappear from outside his London club, Terence, a gruff and notorious diamond smuggler needs to find a replacement fast. His old colleague and former diamond man Jack Varga comes to the rescue offering up his own recruits, but as is to be expected, Varga has ulterior motives. Enter the two misfits, David and Zoli who have just lost their jobs at the champagne factory, now under the ownership of Jack Varga. Through a hapless series of events, David and Zoli find a handwritten contract employing the 'Magic Boys' for an irresistible sum of money. They arrive in London via private jet and soon realize the mess they've gotten themselves into: that the 'Magic Boys' are in fact male strippers. Meanwhile, Varga has kidnapped ...

Trivia

The producer Gabor P Koltai was arrested (and later released from prison) with the charges of tax fraud by movies that do not exist in reality. Magic Boys was one of the movies the Hungarian tax authority claimed to be one that was never actually made. The producer believes that the best way to challenge and rip off the charges against him is to do a countrywide theatrical release of these movies he is working on right now for many of his films. The premier date of Magic Boys in Hungary is the 18th of October 2012 to be shortly followed by Cycle, his animated science fiction (also one of the theoretically non-existing movies) in February 2013 in the theaters in 3D stereoscopic.

Funny in places! 3/10
25 January 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Review: To be honest, I really was expecting this film to be really bad, but it turned out to be watchable. When I saw that Vinnie Jones was in it I thought that it was going to be your stereotypical Vinnie movie, but the director actually worked on the storyline, even though it does get a bit ridiculous after a while. It was good to see Michael Madsen back to his gangster self, and Vinnie Jone does play his usual English tough man, but it I did find some of the scenes quite funny. I liked the way that the different stories intertwined, but if must admit, Jamelia really can't act. It's not anything amazing, but it is different and unpredictable. Watchable!

Round-Up: Whenever I see Vinnie Jones and Michael Madsen in a movie, I expect a low budget weak film with a bad storyline, but as this was made by a Hungarian team, they actually came with something fresh but silly at the same time. I think that this is Jamelia's acting debut, and it wasn't anything promising. The 2 Hungarian wannabe dancers were quite funny and they mixed up the story well, but Michael Madsen did stand out from the rest. He actually seemed to care about his performance, which is a bit different than some of his other movies where he looks like he just wanted the wages. It does get a bit crazy near the end, but it's not bad if you don't take it that seriously.

Budget: $2million Worldwide Gross: N/A

I recommend this movie to people who are into there comedy crime capers diamond smugglers and strippers. 3/10
