Good movie!

Mar 02, 2017

Just an endless series of twists, making everything lose its punch. The final twist barely makes any sense at all; it does come out of left field, but not because it's so shocking, but rather because it makes so little sense. The cast is a great little combination of old legendary stars like Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson, and Morgan Freeman and younger talents like Jesse Eisenberg (THE SOCIAL NETWORK), Dave Franco (21 JUMP STREET), and Isla Fisher (WEDDING CRASHERS). One actress that I think is greatly underappreciated is Melanie Laurent, who I first saw in INGLOURIOUS BASTERDS; the French actress shines brightly no matter the role and she plays every scene with perfect nuance. This impeccable casting aside, the story is a mess, a terrible hole-ridden mess. It's such a shame that you get these incredible actors together and this is what you give them. I wouldn't recommend it.

A group of illusionists are recruited to pull off one of the biggest bank heists to be done ever before. Each performer has their own set of tricks allowing them to bring something different to the table. Whether they are making you disappear, reappear, or speak another language, these world renowned illusionists and magicians are ready to show you what they are made of. Released in 2013 and directed by Jon M. Chu and Louis Leterrier, this heist thriller will bring you on a rollercoaster of emotions and action. The combination of incredible special effects and acting make this movie one for the books.

This is the type of movie I was looking for. Full of deception and trickery, this movie is very clever. It is all about magicians – but none of it is magic. Of course, as we all know, magic isn’t real, and it isn’t real in the movie either. The magicians brilliantly execute tricks to make them appear like magic. These guys are master illusionists. The careers of the magicians is kick-started with a huge bank heist, which gets them into trouble with the FBI. The ending is one that I did not expect at all – a huge plot twist. I really enjoyed this movie and would definitely recommend it.
Rating: 4/5

Now You See Me is an incredibly captivating movie following the story of four expert magicians who call themselves “The Four Horsemen” as well as the FBI who are chasing after them. The ending will completely blow your mind, as it is completely unexpected. Of course, there are amazing actors featured in this movie such as Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, and Morgan Freeman. If you’re someone who loves magic and twist endings, you should definitely watch this movie. 5/5 stars.

This movie is the best movie ever!!!! I love the heist has magic woven into it. Not to mention Jesse Eisenberg and Dave Franco are so cute!! Also I never really liked Mark Ruffalo but his performance in this movie is on par. I can't wait to see the second movie!!! I hope that they make more and more of these movies. They are so cool!!! Not normally the movie I would choose but it is actually quite well done and very interesting. I've seen clips from the second film and I'm glad that they added a character just as good as the main girl in this film. I hope that I like the second as much as the first.

We get a movie every week and we rate them from 1 to 10. This was the first time we have rated a movie 10. Great movie. Kept us guessing and had many surprises throughout.

I don't get all the negative reviews, maybe some of you just don't get magic. If so I would avoid the entire fantasy genre. I thought the movie was magical and well I think that's the one word I would use to describe this movie. Magical. I will leave you with a quote from W.B. Yeats. "The world is full of magical things, patiently waiting for our senses to grow sharper"

A great film with great acting, a bit of suspense and some laughs. This was pure entertainment, I highly recommend it.

It was entertaining with a good cast and writing. You have to suspend disbelief a lot else you'll find yourself quickly poking holes in the plot. But it was fun in general.
