Better than most people think
The movie is wildly uneven but lively and timely - in its own surreal way
The joyful confection is coated in a sparkly gloss, bright enough to gleam from the darkest, most cynical corners.
The film never slows down or bores, plunging from one harrowing sequence to the next.
A young street magician (Jacob Latimore) is left to care for his little sister after their parents passing, and turns to illegal activities to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets in too deep, his sister is kidnapped, and he is forced to use his magic and brilliant mind to save her. Sleight is another cheap straight to dvd film made by WWE and when we are supposed to get invested in our characters? and except a well made film we get neither of those. The film is slow paced and boring, the characters are bland and the acting is not that good plus the ending was disappointing and even comedic for no reason. (0/10)
I watched this at home on BluRay from my local public library. My wife skipped, not her type of movie.The story focuses on the poor side of town, Jacob Latimore is Bo, a smart high school graduate who takes care of his little sister. But Bo has to scratch for a living, he has been a Houdini fan and has developed a great facility of "sleight of hand" tricks and picks up cash as a street magician.But Bo needs more if he and his little sister are to get out of that life and he earns it as a drug salesman. Sometimes late at night in an alley, often times in his car. But he gets greedy and gets on the wrong side of his dealer, Dulé Hill as very brutal Angelo. When someone moves into his territory and doesn't leave willingly Angelo has the man's hand cut off. Bo has developed a trick that requires an electrical coil embedded in his shoulder. He can levitate small items like coins but he needs something much more powerful to combat Angelo, and gets help from his old high school science teacher.Cute Seychelle Gabriel as Holly plays the love interest for Bo, and Storm Reid is effective in the small role as Bo's sister, Tina.This movie was written and directed by young filmmakers trying to get established in the business, it is interesting enough but in the end relatively superficial, with not much lasting impression.
At the start it felt like I was in for a treat. I felt like something very interesting will happen in this story. But little did I know that was the zenith of this movie. Everything went down from that cliff.On the hindsight the story is not so different form any other poorly written action movie. The directing was interesting enough to make it seem like this had something in it. If you have watched this movie and liked it then take a break and really think about the story. It is utterly ridiculous.This is not a good movie and I would recommend skipping it.
