The Hong Kong comedy 大魔術師 (The Great Magician) (Blu-ray release 2012-3-15) started out really well, with great movie stars, cameos, and a smart script (initially). I thought this was going to be an excellent movie when I watched two thirds of it. However, the ending is incoherent with the early parts of the movies, and I found it almost incomprehensible as an important subplot involving a secondary villain is unresolved, and the characters undergo drastic changes with no reason. The tremendous potential in this movie eventually turned into disappointment for me.
