No magic

Witches who can't do magic..really the only magic seen by these witches were to morph into animals and 'mother witch' who turned a dingy castle into a palace and restored her sisters face.

As I count down the days till Avengers: Age of Ultron I have been appeasing my insatiable appetite for films with whatever I can, hence my visit to see The Seventh Son.
