Ever notice whenever there's a non-comedy made about magicians they're almost always either using their powers of magic and illusions to fight evil or commit it? The pattern continues with the serial killer thriller Magic Man. The real magic might well be its cast: Billy Zane, Robert Davi, Armand Assante, Bai Ling, Andrew Divoff, and Richard Tyson.
Billy Zane stars as popular Las Vegas magician Krell Darius. Tourist Tatiana (Estelle Raskin, not familiar with her) just happens to be the daughter of a magician's assistant killed on stage during an illusion gone wrong. Of course she falls under Krell's spell, and, of course, it turns out her mother's death may not have been an accident after all, and, of course, Krell may have been in some way responsible. Could Krell be a master magician whose greatest trick is getting away with murder? And could Tatiana be next?
