This is the latest in a long line of game-changing Indian horrors, such as, err, you know, and, erm, that other one. OK, OK, I can't think of any because who the fuck watches Indian horrors? Well, apparently, I do. I did have my doubts before putting it on because, well, it's an Indian horror, but it did stand up to Hollywood horrors in both production quality and disappointment factor. I found that I couldn't care less about the characters and I was too tired to be arsed with the subs, which is unusual for me, so I turned it off afer an hour.
I was recently complaining about how bad horrors are nowadays and someone recommended this to me as one of the good ones. I will never again listen to a word that person says. If you told me a group of stoned 14 year old boys wrote the script to this film, I would absolutely believe you. It starts off well but then goes totally off its tits and ultimately just doesn't make sense. It does, though, at least try to have a narrative - even if that narrative is all over the fucking place - unlike a lot of the shit horrors nowadays that reply purly on jump scares.
This is about the life of The Amazing Randi, a young boy who became obsessed with magic who then grew into a man that hated seeing people being misled by con men claiming to have real abilities. He spent his career calling out the likes or Uri Gellar and Peter Popoff and he could prove that they were faking it. It's an interesting account of an interesting invidivual.
If you're 14 and think gangbangers - one of which is a moustache-laden tattooed Jamie Lannister - going to prison and having fights is cool, you'll probably like this. Unfortunately I'm not and I don't. Nor am I particularly keen on fighting, prisons, tattoos or moustaches. And I positively dislike the Lannisters. So, yeah, you guessed it; not the best.
The boys in the space program didn't half have to go through some shit as they pushed the absolute limits of flight. I enjoyed how this film wasn't dumbed down as well - as often many are today - because fuck the idiots.
