You may want to jump off a cliff afterwards...
18 September 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I almost died of boredom during this movie and, judging from their faces, I'd guess most of the actors in it did too: the whole experience of 'Magic Man' is comatose and dismal. It's a depressing film because some impressive actors are painfully under-used, rudely shoved aside to give screen time to drab unknowns who plod miserably through their tedious characters, incapable of holding audience attention, whilst the likes of Billy Zane, Robert Davi, Armande Assante and Bai Ling are treated like supporting actors, with not much to say or do.

Inexplicably, the insipid lead characters are Russian but, just for the fun of being nonsensical, there's no reason why. Oddly, the very actor who's expert at playing Russians isn't one - that's the craggy but knicker-vibratingly dishy 'Wishmaster' Andrew Divoff, an actor with a dangerous charisma and a beguiling voice who should have been cast as the eponymous 'Magic Man', with Billy Zane as the maverick cop. And yet in this flapping debacle, he's wasted as some irrelevant red herring whilst instead, a robotic Russian hulk monotones the role of the cop, a sulky female with a face like a bulldog chewing a wasp relentlessly bores as the lady lead and Billy Zane just looks bemused.

Whoever wrote this film read the best-selling novel 'Carter Beats The Devil' and decided to re-heat the leftovers. They just forgot to add any story, any characterisation, any suspense or any drama. Whoever directed it lucked out in securing some major names in acting talent, then just treated them with contemptuous disregard. The final insolent punch in the face comes with the ending, with the cock-eyed climax of the "plot". As I mentioned at the beginning, try your hardest not to jump off a cliff - this movie will dissatisfy you in every conceivable way.
