"Sleight" Sets Stage for Intellectual Superhero
11 June 2017 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

If you think that "Sleight" is a movie about some street hustler that can do cool magic tricks, you are in for an eye-opening experience. It's the type of movie that's setting the stage for a phenomenal superhero series unlike any other. The movie's gritty criminal aspect creates a powerful gripping story.

Sleight is about Bo (Jacob Latimore), an intellectually gifted teen who gets in way over his head trying to provide for his little sister Tina (Storm Reid) after the death of their mother.

Director, J. D. Dillard made a great choice in casting Jacob Latimore as Bo in the lead role. Latimore has a charismatic charm on the big screen that draws the audience attention. This movie will definitely raise Jacob Latimore's star power in Hollywood and make everyone take notice.
