Magic back to product details

Fond memories of a very creepy ventriloquism act....

I liked the movie - the acting and cinematography were spot-on, the story was coherent and believable, and that was one creepy situation. Good suspense, a good cast, and an engrossing story make this movie, while not stellar, certainly above average. The special features, including a good history of stage ventriloquism, are also worth checking out.

Abra-cadabra! Zzzzzzzzz....

I found MAGIC tiresome and obvious when it made its debut way-back-when but, after reading a nice NY Times review around the time the film was supposed to appear on DVD, I thought perhaps I was too young to have appreciated it. Now, after viewing over half of the movie again, it still seems tiresome and obvious. Although it's fun to watch Ann-Margaret in just about anything, to see Anthony Hopkins so young again, and to enjoy Burgess Meredith in an especially good role, the story, screenplay and direction (first two by William Goldman, the latter by Sir Richard Attenborough) are lackluster: ugly--without the depth to warrant that ugliness--and slow.
