Oh my God!! I feel like I have to post this for all to beware. I just watched the absolute worst movie about magic ever filmed. It is called "Magic Man" and stars Billy Zane (that should have been my first clue). The only redeeming quality of this movie is a cameo by the Great Jeff Hobson doing a quick cigarette bit. The list of illusions performed are as follows. It is supposed to be a murder mystery/thriller. I actually laughed my *** off the entire film...the acting and plot were so bad that it was actually entertaining. Not only did it star Billy Zane, it also had Armande Assante and Robert Davi (you will recognize him). Though the "stars" of the film only had supporting roles. The main actors were two Russians who spoke horrible English....this totally added to the humor of the film. I would recommend it to other magicians due the fact that it was sooo bad it was actually funny. The movie actually did a full exposure on the workings of the Asrah levitation, though not on purpose.... No worries though, I would venture that less than 500 people world wide will ever see this film!

Illusions/tricks performed:

Buzz saw that kills the assistant
Dekolta Chair
Drum illusion
Appearing Rose
Coin from ear
Sword box
Appearing dove (Super Lame)
Walking on water (ala Criss Angel in a pool)
Appearing glass (Super Lame)
Glass to dove
Jeff Hobson!!! Does a cigarette routine
Appearing aces
Walking through a mirror
Fully exposed Asrah levitation.

I've found it available for download on Trrent sites. If it is THAT bad I won't bother paying to watch it, LOL.

Google it.

I remeber seeing this a while back, the acting was very lame!
The ashra looked like Joseph Gabriels prop.
The crystal casket drum illusion looked nice.
