They shoot... and MISS!
How did so many talented or at least charismatic actors wind up in this
baloney? Nothing is very good about this movie but the worst things
probably are the screenplay and the directing.
Apparently this is director Damian Niemans heart-piece as he's both
written and directed it (and acted in as well). He's a card magician
himself and seems to have named characters in homage of other famous
magicians. This was his first feature film as far as I know, and
chances are it's his last.
It's hard to point to exactly what makes it so poor but I'd say the
story and character's are not believable (the screenplay) and the
directing doesn't give it any boost (the director). Plus the poker
scenes are bad in the worst Hollywood manner (super-hands, Hollywood
rules)! The supposed twists in the movie are either totally predictable
or totally unbelievable. They just end up tying a knot to a story that
at best can be described as "a few decent scenes"!
