G.I. Joe: Retaliation (2013)
Some things you never see coming. The president has ordered the world’s elite training force — the G.I. Joe team — to be terminated for treason, and those who survive face off against Zartan and the world leaders he has influenced. Spoiler alert: Channing dies after the first 20 minutes, but it’s 20 minutes worth watching. Pwaaroof! What was the scriptwriter thinking?
Magic Mike (2012)
“The law says you cannot touch, but I think I see a lotta lawbreakers up in this house tonight.” Great buns, pecs, chiselled bodies and six-packs — shame about the script and the lack of stripping. If you’re looking for a movie with a storyline, this isn’t it. The only decent thing about this movie is the eye candy — and Channing, of course.
The Vow (2012)
Your heart will flip-flop and take the tissues. Newlyweds Paige (Rachel McAdams) and Leo (Channing “Cutie-pie” Tatum) are in a perfect little bubble of love until a car accident shatters life as they know it. Paige sustains serious head injuries and, when she wakes, has no memory of her life with Leo. Leo does his best to win back her heart. Based on the true story of Kim and Krickitt Carpenter.
10 Years (2011)
Who got fat? Who got rich? Who got hot? Who didn’t change? It’s the night before the class reunion, and a group of friends realize they haven’t quite grown up. Channing plays Jake and stars alongside his wife, Jenna Dewan-Tatum.
The Son of No One (2011)
Rookie cop Jonathan “Milk” White (Channing Tatum) is working in the neighbourhood where he grew up when old secrets start to rear their ugly heads, threatening his career and family. If you enjoyed The Taking of Pelham 123, Takers or Spy Game, you will probably enjoy this movie.
Dear John (2010)
Special Forces Army Sergeant John Tyree (Channing Tatum) is on two weeks’ leave when he meets Savannah Curtis (Amanda Seyfried). It’s love at first sight. Though the two are separated by distance, their love story continues through a series of letters until he returns.
Public Enemies (2009)
In Public Enemies, Channing goes gangster in his role as Pretty Boy Floyd. It is set during the 1930s crime wave, and the Feds are on a mission to take down a bunch of American gangsters. Channing stars alongside lots of eye candy, like Johnny Depp, Christian Bale and Stephen Dorff. Take a bucket for your dribble.
She’s the Man (2006)
When the girls’ soccer team is cut and the coach refuses to let her play for the boys’ team, Viola (Amanda Bynes) poses as her twin brother while he’s in London for two weeks and joins the soccer team at his elite boarding school. When she ends up falling for her brother’s roommate, Duke (Channing Tatum), there’s just one small problem: Duke thinks Viola is a dude.
Coach Carter (2005)
Taking on the job of basketball coach for his old high school, former champion athlete Ken Carter is disappointed in the attitude of the basketball team and its poor performance on the court and in the classroom. In an attempt to change this, he draws up contracts with each player, and when they break the contracts, he benches the entire team. Channing plays Jason Lyle, a member of the basketball team. Never having played basketball, Channing had individual training to get him up to speed.
Step Up (2006)
It’s like Dirty Dancing on steroids. Channing Tatum plays Tyler Gage, a kid from the wrong side of town. He’s caught vandalizing the performing arts school, which results in his getting a chance to win a scholarship and dance with professional dancer Nora, played by Channing’s now wife, Jenna Dewan. Channing also has a role in the sequel, Step Up 2: The Streets.
Side Effects (2013)
This movie just goes to show why Channing is still the sexiest man alive. Smouldering onscreen, he will set hearts racing in this provocative thriller. When Martin (Channing’s character) meets Emily, he sweeps her off her feet. Their happiness is short lived, and Emily ends up being prescribed a drug that throws her entire world into chaos.
21 Jump Street (2012)
Popular jock Jenko (Channing Tatum) and his dorky friend Schmidt (Jonah Hill) join the police force and end up as partners. The pair goes undercover to bust a drug ring supplying high-schoolers with synthetic substances. Surprisingly funny, Channing will have you rolling in the aisle with his comedic timing.
The Dilemma (2011)
What would you do if you caught your best friend’s wife cheating? This is the dilemma Ronny Valentine (Vince Vaughn) has. In this predictable comedy, Channing is the shining light as a lovable meathead called Zip. Just looking at his tattooed, muscly arms makes the lame attempts at one-liners worth it.
Decorated Iraq war hero Brandon King returns home only to find out he’s being shipped out on another tour. This movie has everything: action, scenes where you’ll need to get the tissues and lots of eye candy, with a shirtless Channing, Ryan Phillippe and Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
