GOOD TV MOVIE! A LITTLE TOO ON AND OFF THOUGH
27 May 2000 | by (Chicago, Illinois) – See all my reviews

Okay, this was a good movie, a lot of special effects which were pretty good at the time especially since this was on TV. I liked the acting, and the cameos.

SUMMARY: Mandrake, a famous magician of the mystic arts, is hired by Robert Reed, who plays a tycoon, to help him defeat these men that want to destroy his amusement park.

I luckily have this movie. I enjoy it very much. *** 1/2 stars
