This film was written, directed and starred in (plays Simon Conjurer) by Stuart Paul, who took his name from the credits completely. It was produced in 2006 under the name The Legend of Simon Conjurer, and yes it is Jon Voight under all that makeup and a fat suit.
At 138 minutes it's too long by 128 minutes, and I can well understand why Stuart Paul with-held his name from this his own writing and directing creation.
A twee message movie, not ever sure whether it's supposed to be an adult tale for children (but far too much language), a children's story for adults (too childish and simplistic) a parody (of pantomimes ?) or a comedy (unfunny in the extreme) the film fails on all levels, despite Jon Voight describing it as an adventure none have gone on before.
Or will ever want to again, Jon.
