To that end comes director Derek Yee’s The Great Magician, a step away from the director’s preferred urban action fare. Magician is the kind of colorful, polished amusement that could find an audience in urban markets around the globe. Respectable if not blockbuster box office is possible in Asia where recognizable stars and novel a subject could carry the day....

We can’t make magicians out of scientists -- we wouldn’t want to -- but we can help scientists “think in the groove” -- think like a magician. And we should...
