Inept Director Ruins the Show
27 November 2008 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

There were great performances by some of the best magicians in the world, but you'd barely know it by watching this show. The director either hates magic or has no idea how to present a television program of this nature. At every turn, performances were undercut by outrageously bad visual choices. Instead of letting the act's talent speak for itself, the choice to frenetically cut among multiple cameras often ruined the effects, doing great disservice to the talent involved. At crucial moments, a bad angle, far shot or audience reaction took you out of the moment and spoiled the flow and impact of the effect in progress. It was maddening, especially during the first of the two syndicated hours. Could this be why there's no director's credit here on the IMDb page?
