A young street magician is left to take care of his little sister after his mother's passing and turns to drug dealing in the Los Angeles party scene to keep a roof over their heads. When he gets into trouble with his supplier, his sister is kidnapped and he is forced to rely on both his sleight of hand and brilliant mind to save her.
Almost everything that happens in _Sleight_ made me think "Oh, this is just like where this happens in that other, better, movie". But the fact that it's original IP overall is refreshing, and just because someone else did it **better**, doesn't mean _Sleight_ doesn't do it very well. _Final rating:★★★ - I liked it. Would personally recommend you give it a go._
I saw this movie last year when it came out. I thought it was very cool and a nice take on the superhero origin story, along with "young black man makes it out of the ghetto" story. Not very believable towards the end, but the acting and the rules they established earlier on made it work. All the actors in here were great and the movie looked very good too.
