Bale as Tommy Cooper and Jackman as Paul Daniels, missed opportunity

Pleasantly surprised with this offering, decent script, acting and illusions. I have paid to see films that have not been as entertaining.Worth watching.

Dialog coach for Christian Bale?
This involving and detailed period drama ruined for me by Christian Bale's completely over-the-top Sweeney-like Mockney accent. Move over Dick van Dyke, your crown looks shaky. Elsewhere the dialog coach did a fine job with an almost unrecognisable David Bowie as Tesla. But in the final reel, Hugh Jackman's over-wordy never-ending death speech is accompanied by the least inspired orchestral scoring ever - a succession of rising then falling long chords, worthy of a Simpsons piss-take. Coulda bin a great movie - Michael Caine, who I don't care for particularly, was the best thing in it. By far.
