Almost everything that happens in _Sleight_ made me think “Oh, this is just like where this happens in that other, better, movie”. But the fact that it’s original IP overall is refreshing, and just because someone else did it **better**, doesn’t mean _Sleight_ doesn’t do it very well.
_Final rating:★★★ – I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
I saw this movie last year when it came out. I thought it was very cool and a nice take on the superhero origin story, along with “young black man makes it out of the ghetto” story. Not very believable towards the end, but the acting and the rules they established earlier on made it work.
All the actors in here were great and the movie looked very good too.
This movie went nowhere
At the start it felt like I was in for a treat. I felt like something very interesting will happen in this story. But little did I know that was the zenith of this movie. Everything went down from that cliff.
On the hindsight the story is not so different form any other poorly written action movie. The directing was interesting enough to make it seem like this had something in it. If you have watched this movie and liked it then take a break and really think about the story. It is utterly ridiculous.
This is not a good movie and I would recommend skipping it.
For Fantasy Lovers Only
The first several scenes of ‘Sleight’ follow the indelible Bo (Jacob Latimore) as he masterfully performs card and coin tricks for friends and strangers, the likes of which suck you into his world with genuine intrigue.
Yet Bo’s world is complicated, juggling his responsibilities as sole guardian of his little sister’s welfare and dealing drugs for a local thug.
At this point I was already somewhat puzzled at Bo’s choices to make ends meet financially. Why the drug dealing? I personally knew a couple of street magicians back in San Francisco who raked in hundreds of dollars a day with their showmanship -why not Bo? His high caliber of illusions certainly qualifies, yet he prowls the night away with copious amounts of narcotics while his little sister is watched over by a kindly neighbor.
Sorry, that just doesn’t make a lot of sense.
As our story develops we learn Bo’s mastery of magic involves a fair amount of electronic aids, which proved to be a real let down for me in a couple areas.
First, we WANT to believe Bo has a natural inclination to near superhuman qualities in order to do the things he does, yet come to find it’s merely high tech gadgets at work.
Second, the mutilation of the laws of physics and electromagnetism will ruin the fun for anybody with a working knowledge of these sciences.
I would give a layman’s explanation as to why, but that gets into Spoiler Territory.
It’s enough to say Bo’s devices are pure fantasy and impossible to construct in this day and age, but it is fun to watch.
Director J. D. Dillard and company put this film together on a relative shoe-string budget of only $250,000 dollars (it’s grossed six times that so far), which all by itself is an accomplishment.
By comparison, big budget Hollywood has a long history of complete train wrecks costing 100 times that amount, but only delivering half as much.
All of the supporting roles were adequate if not a little shaky, with the exceptional stand-out performance by Dule’ Hill, who portrays Angelo, the high-functioning and affable drug baron who’s charm and effect is polished and impeccable yet can deliver extreme pain and misery on any enemies at the drop of a hat. His character alone added much to the story.
Aside from that, combined with a truly baffling ending, ‘Sleight’ with all it’s potential entertainment value makes two or three fatal errors which dropped it from a rating of 8.5 to a merely adequate 6 in this reviewer’s eyes.
‘Sleight’ delivers, but only the minimum amount required.
