Critic Reviews for Abra Kadabra

Flash does one of the illest moves this show has cooked up in it's 3-year-run.

Between the fancy card tricks and disappearing acts and fake limbs, the writers really made the most of his stage magician motif.

Dastmalchian is a lot of fun in the role of Kadabra. The character actor has been a charming presence everywhere lately it seems, so his appearance here almost feels like he's doing The Flash a favor.
