william k Lively, entertaining crime drama is simple, but straightforward and suspenseful. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Lacks energy, but nothing wrong with it. Dante The Magician was apparently a legend, so there's a bit of history there. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/22/23 Full Review joe m Dated yet enjoyable crime caper about a bunch of charlatans trying to fleece an old widow out of her millions and the cops who are out to stop them. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Read all reviews
