Magicians movie review

Stage Struck

movie poster magicians

Movie poster, Magicians

After a disastrous guillotine accident on stage, a pair of British magicians split up their act. Years later they are forced to reunite for a contest.

When every man and his dog hacks a script, the result is a dog's breakfast.

Yep, this is a tedious, uninvolving and directionless tale of mediocrity falling to it's own level.
