A magician competes in an international magic competition where he goes head to head with a female street magician he has fallen in love with. This film shows great magic performed by a cast of professional magicians. Like a great musical where the songs and the story are seamlessly intertwined, Desperate Acts of Magic does the same, mixing story and magic as one.Written by
Okay, so this film is NOT going to win an Oscar for Best Picture. But it IS much fun. I found The characters are believable, and I enjoyed seeing actual magic that was performed without special effects. Some may think it mundane. In a world that has come to view Criss Angel as the epitome of "magic," perhaps a small story about folks who don't levitate seems too tame. Maybe the writers poke a little too much fun at the professional magician. Yet, if you cannot laugh at yourself, then you lead a sad life. This film may not be everyone's "cup of tea." But, then again, neither is magic. However, if you enjoy magic, magicians, or just want to have some fun, please go see it!
