Downtrodden but world-class magician resorts to crime and betrayal. Oh yeah, and magnets can stop bullets.

I tend to put a lot of store in Metacritic and IMDb scoring, and chose to see this film based on those. The acting and production values are adequate, but the story is completely preposterous. Not only does it completely disregard any notion of physics. but assigns zero value to the brilliant sleight of hand the protagonist displays, and instead shifts into unnecessary and gratuitous "hood" action. It even largely ignores its own bizarre reality. Worst of all, the protagonist seems to have no moral compass at all, willing to screw anyone without the slightest regret. I give it a two for being competently made, but the script deserves a -10. Disgusting.

Don't buying on fake reviews and bragging trailer

Its not comic "Iron Man" at all, its even not a decent superhero-to-real life film, because second half of movie is a poor absurd, and a plot itself very-very stupid and cheap, and there is no sci-fi - just fantasy and weird fiction, and yes I clearly see where they rip-off this super- ability (anywhere, lol, but plot from... hello mr. Christopher Priest!) and a way they realize it (from Tetsuo Iron man of course - and this funny how they trick all in a trailer, and ONLY because of this I give it a two stars). In all other parts... well its another boring story from da hood, where home-grow HOOdini (ha-ha, okay three stars) sell drugs when he actually can do money from his "magic" and why he do all that he do in second part? Only for a plot! This is stupid. If you want a good indie movie about this "theme" go to "Super" (2010) its hilarious, but some how much realistic than wanna-be-serious "Sleight". "Sleight" really nothing, but waste of your time and this is sad. Like all this 10 of 10 reviews.

Perfect title for the movie, I was tricked into watching

Didn't know a thing about this movie going it, except that it involved some magic (ala Now you see me)

While there are some magic, it doesn't even try to base it on actual magic. all camera tricks & editing that can't be done in real life. And the story doesn't really make sense if you look into it.

***SPOILERS***

This supposedly smart 'engineer' implanted an electromagnet in his arm that looks like he got in a car accident. Then later on, tells us that there are fine wires running down his arms to his hands UNDER his skin (with no scars). REALLY?! You got an infected car wreck on your upper arm and then tell us that you have wires surgically implanted in the rest of your arm with no scars, all by yourself with one hand?! And the purpose of this is to levitate/move metallic object. Again, none of the writers seem like they took basic science. Magnets has no effect on precious metals or LEAD! So you can't levitate a silver ring, rip out gold teeth or stop lead bullets.

Also, why make him this smart (seemly moral) dude if you're just gonna have him deal drugs, steal from his friends and dealer. If he really is smart and made an electromagnet implant that work, why doesn't he just sell it. And no bs about magic secret, a lot of magician sell their tricks & props for profit. And the whole reason he got into magic was to find out one trick, which that magician told for free. There is nothing in this movie that shows he's as smart as the movie claims. Everything in this movie makes him out to be a hustling hood rat (with a heart, but only for 3 people) who hates being a hustling hood rat. That's like saying peter parker hate being spider-man when he could be rich selling his web fluid.

Lastly, on him owing his dealer money. He needed 9 grand, why not sell his car? He could've easily gotten 10k for it. Again, this dude is suppose to be smart?!
