"MAGICIANS follows four world-class magicians on stage and off, exploring how and why these characters so passionately dedicate their lives to the craft of illusion. Their journey takes us from the most humbling of road gigs to grand performances on the biggest of stages, from finding love to terrible personal loss; and to the prospect of losing everything for a dream others don't understand. As we come to understand why each is obsessively chasing his own dream, we'll discover the unhidden secret: far more fascinating than the magic are the magicians themselves."

FAKE Reviews - Beware
17 January 2017 | by mendzelSee all my reviews

You know what film is an 8/10 or a 9/10? Wolf of Wallstreet. You know what film is not? Documentary on Magicians. Yet, judging by all of the high star ratings and glowing reviews, you'd think this film may win an Oscar(and one fake reviewer even suggested it!). Wrong. Fake reviews....they are plaguing IMDb.

Many of these reviewers have ONLY reviewed ONE FILM (This film!). The one reviewer who has multiple previously-reviewed films gives an unbiased, low rating. Surprise: 3 out of 4 people said his review was Not helpful. Weird right? A very insightful, unbiased review is met with such universal disagreement. I'm guessing These fake reviewers can't help but also sabotage legitimate reviews too. Pathetic.

Note to fake reviewers: at least pump in a few reviews for other films so you can appear to be a film fan and not affiliated with the film you are reviewing.

If anyone involved in the film (aka the fake reviewers) is reading this, please take note: YOU ARE RUINING IMDb! It has become a biased, fictitious ratings-land where the average consume cannot get an objective review of a film.

My suggestion: move along to a film that stands on its own merit and doesn't need to trick you into viewing.
