Atypical road movie.......
4 August 2008 | by merklekranzSee all my reviews

Wrapping a road movie around a misfit group of wannabe magicians is unique, and this creativity drives "Magicians" into above average territory. With interesting dialog, good character development, and a reasonable story, the film succeeds in maintaining interest. The clunky magic acts are sometimes quite funny. All the participants, though flawed, never give up. Almost everyone will be left with a positive experience after seeing a disheveled bunch of losers transform into believers, and ultimately succeed in accomplishing their dream. "Magicians" is good uplifting entertainment, and recommended viewing. - MERK
