Australian stuntman Grant Page goes to Los Angeles to work on a television series. He uses his spare time to lend his expertise to rock band Sorcery, whose act features duels between the King of the Wizards and the Prince of Darkness, with his cousin playing the Prince. Page helps the duo develop pyrotechnic magic tricks for their shows, and also finds himself in a budding romance with a magazine writer as he recounts to her his own exploits as a stuntman and daredevil as well as various stunts by other greats.
You won’t believe your eyes! Stunts! rock! It’s the new style! These people really thought they were onto something here, and their earnestness, regardless of talent, helps elevate the whole film. There is no plot to speak of, although a few tangental storylines keep things moving more or less ahead. But really it’s all an excuse to get from musical sequence to stunt sequence and back again. Over and over and over. Every moment is unbelievably absurd and surreal. Many of the stunt sequences are spliced in from other films the star, Grant Page, has performed stunts in. He plays himself, as do many of the other actors and musicians here, including the amazingly awful sorcery, whose live performances, as shown here, are filled with an audience who seem to all be wondering who the hell these people are. besides this, there’s a masked keyboardist! Stunts painfully gone awry! Chicks in gold spandex with guns! Wizards! Demons!
