Goofs

When Madge is driving away her license plate is yellow and has six numeric characters. This kind of license plate was introduced in Tel-Aviv in 1971. Until then, at least since the 1950s, the license plates in Israel were red and had 5 numeric characters. The scene was set in 1969. The same goof also was seen on Uri's car after his first show.

True story twisted beyond recognition
22 June 2001 | by See all my reviews

I was under the impression that Uri Geller was illusionist using simple parlor tricks to impress his gullible audience. After watching this movie however, I realized that I was misinformed. It turns out that Geller is a superhero on the run from the military, that wants to use his powers for evil. Yes, it's that stupid.

Endorsed by Geller himself this is a lame, selfserving piece of crap. Is it drama, comedy, or sci-fi thriller? Who knows? It appears the director couldn't decide, and made it a little bit of everything, none of which has any redeeming qualities.

As a reasonably intelligent person this movie made me want to beat myself in the head with a shovel.
