Modern David Copperfield!!

Looking at the rating on this I was sceptical it would be appropriate for my kids. There is a lot of drama around the whole thing but it reminds me of my childhood watching David Copperfield. It’s a certain type of Magic, do or die and he tells the tales of magicians who have failed. If you thought your kids were going to go out and try in these stunts then no but I feel like the average 8 year old is mature enough to cope with this and enjoy it!!! There’s a lot of hype but as an adult I quite enjoyed watching it with the kids!!!
