Audience Reviews for Houdini

  • May 09, 2015
    The illusionist Harry Houdini and his wife and stage partner take the magic world by storm. From the opening credits, it's obvious that this film is a mash-up of period scenes and modern music and jump-cuts. Sometimes it works, as in Houdini's jump off a bridge, and sometimes it's ridiculous, as in the several times that Houdini gets punched in the gut. More modern interference comes from the neo-Freudian voice-overs, which are tell instead of show and so drenched in pop psychoanalytics that the film seems like a boring essay with a hip soundtrack. Adrien Brody is fine as Houdini; Brody makes a believable magician, but some of Houdini's marital scenes are forced. Evan Jones is discount James LeGros, and Kristen Connolly is nagging wife. Overall, I'm starting to think that broad biopics are less successful than biopics that center on specific event that stands in for the rest of the protagonist's life.
