Paranormal investigators Tom Buckley (Murphy) and Margaret Matheson (Weaver) cannot resist applying their rigorous scientific methods to the showy antics of blind spoon-bender Simon Silver (De Niro), who comes out of retirement for one last series of shows 30 years after a performance in which a member of the audience — his own harshest critic — was killed.
Even with flashes of invention and the game cast, it would take a wilier showman than Cortés to truly impress with this shabby bag of tricks.
