  • Fridge Brilliance: When Danny is being examined by Max's team of experts, the lineup is two scientists, a supposed real psychic, and Max himself, sitting in that order. Or, to put it another way, two scientists, and two supernaturals, perfectly split in the middle
  • Magnificent Bastard: Max is an Evil Sorcerer masquerading as a Stage Magician. Prior to the start of the film Max gave his mentor a magical ring which he used to steal his powers and kill him. Taking over his mansion, years later Max sets up a reality show for gifted young magicians as a ploy to lure out another wizard. Taking an interest in protagonist Danny Sinclair, Max convinces the public that Danny's magic isn't real while tutoring him in private, giving him a ring to "control" his powers with the intent of killing him, playing the same trick he used on his former mentor and almost succeeding.

How well does it match the trope?
