Pssst, want to check out Sleight in our new look?
See all comments
Sleight is an action sci-fi film about a boy who can pull off magic... not necessarily tricks however. The film has a serious tone and we very much understand the hardships that this young man is going through which adds an important depth to his character. He is a street magician by day, but has to indulge in a life of drug dealing at night. This inevitably leads to disputes with the gang leader who he is affiliated with and this leads to Bo realising his full potential... albeit inadvertenty
For me, the story seemed to be similar to an origin story of an unnamed superhero.
The oacing is slow however, it all builds up to an intense scene in the third act
to see which of your friends have seen this movie!
