The Magician follows charismatic, yet volatile hitman Ray Shoesmith (Scott Ryan) around Melbourne while he is being filmed by a friend and neighbour. As he goes about his chilling business – threatening violence and in some cases making good on those threats – the camera continues to roll. Fuelled by offbeat conversation, dark humour and emotional crises, The Magician features a tour de force central performance from writer-director Scott Ryan. His character is a killer, a man who would as soon pull the trigger as not, but without smoothing out any of the rough edges Ryan makes you like him when what you should be feeling is utter loathing.
Acting was crap,could barely understand the stroy and my banana could of acted Arnold swharznegger better! Waste of time. Not recomendd
Nothing magical about this surge. One of the worst films I have ever seen. There is no magic about why this film is .99p Don't waste your quid.
Can Only Get Better
Proof that you should be a little more wary of what you release as a director/writer.
This movie may not be the one to watch but does have tiny occasional sparks of something that could be developed in future films from this crew.
Relatively speaking, there have been far worse movies made by hollywood and with massive budgets.
