If you don't like this, we can't be friends.
I don't have all the words right now but this film is a work of art.
All of these films share one commonality, that being a kind of emotional center that humanizes a cast of monsters.
The movie's not perfect, but it sticks the landing of its message. It was engaging - thrilling at times - and I personally thought it was a great time.
Besides a couple things that do feel inaccurate like the nonchalance of the main drug dealer the movie is worth a watch. But it's those little things that doesn't make Sleight a great movie. If a drug dealer would act like that he would be caught the same day. But other than that the story is entertaining. Jacob Latimore did a good job with his performance. The tricks are maybe a bit over the top, certainly at the end, but I guess it's fine being a fictional story. I don't really like magic anyways, unless you explain me the trick afterwards. But I'm not saying it's the best movie ever in this genre. But certainly better than all those negative reviewers wants to make you believe.
So we have a promising young black student, who has to drop out of a scholarship to deal drugs and perform street tricks. He's committed, though, implanting a bunch of metal in his arm to give himself the (totally bogus) ability to manipulate metals with a twitch of his fingers.What does he do with these skills? Steal things, break into things, get into fights.I'm pretty over the stereotyping of people based on skin colour.
I read others reviews before watching and found the more positive reviews to be about right but to be fair, both myself and my Son enjoyed it. I believe that for the small amount of improving that this Film could of done with it still deserves at least an 8 for so many reasons... the Acting believable, the Story is gripping, the magic is awesome, It even made me smile and the suspense in some parts is quite intense. I will recommend to others and would watch again.. This is just one of those films that could of been better but still delivered a satisfying view....
If you think that "Sleight" is a movie about some street hustler that can do cool magic tricks, you are in for an eye-opening experience. It's the type of movie that's setting the stage for a phenomenal superhero series unlike any other. The movie's gritty criminal aspect creates a powerful gripping story.Sleight is about Bo (Jacob Latimore), an intellectually gifted teen who gets in way over his head trying to provide for his little sister Tina (Storm Reid) after the death of their mother.Director, J. D. Dillard made a great choice in casting Jacob Latimore as Bo in the lead role. Latimore has a charismatic charm on the big screen that draws the audience attention. This movie will definitely raise Jacob Latimore's star power in Hollywood and make everyone take notice.
