Critic Reviews for Sleight
Magic tricks become shorthand for the power of personal transformation in JD Dillard's modestly scaled thriller that's equally an accessible domestic drama.
Sleight never shows much interest in exploring how blackness can inform its genre's tropes.
Sleight's greatest trick is hiding expected action for so long, only to capture attention through more familiar dramatic trappings.
Underneath the film's unconvincing portrait of urban woe ... is a well-paced superhero narrative that keeps you engaged.
Sleight is a film that may not feel as fresh as, say, Chronicle, but its low-budget genre sensibilities mixed with more urban undertones speak directly to the sort of entertainment audiences are craving these days.
