Format: DVD
The film opens with four quick character introductions of "street" magicians. Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg) uses street magic to meet pretty women. His former assistant Henley (Isla "Legs" Fisher) does a stage act. McKinney (Woody Harrelson) is a hypnotist who uses his ability to shake down people. Jack (Dave Franco) uses his slight of hand to pick pocket people.

The four are summoned by Tarot cards (Lover, High Priestess, The Fool, and Death) to a common location. After the credits they become the world's greatest stage magicians while performing crime. They are followed by FBI Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) and Interpol Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent). Meanwhile Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) is exposing their seemingly impossible tricks on the Internet.

The film keeps you interested as to their next trick. The movie drops clues as to what is going on, but again there is the classic misdirection here too. It is s fun popcorn action film filled with mystery, drama, action, and humor.

Parental Guide: One f-bomb. no sex, or nudity. Some sex discussion. Woman in bra.

Now You See Me, like any great magician, is faintly smug. It knows it's ahead of you because you haven't been given all the facts, but it's out to make you enjoy yourself anyway. Louis Leterrier is a slick enough director that the film feels like a fun visual ride, full of showy flourishes and well-paced drama. There's even a car chase that feels punchy and well orchestrated. As Jesse Eisenberg and his fellow magicians race to stay one step ahead of the law despite Morgan Freeman's professional expose film-maker, and the FBI it can feel as if the odds are stacked too heavily against the lead quartet of actors. However, we're allowed to enjoy lead FBI agent Mark Ruffalo's company quite a lot, almost as if the director realises that he's made the magicians too cocky and self-satisfied to work properly as lead characters. In a way he's right - they're immense fun in small doses, and because they started as underdogs you can't help rooting for them. However, their writing is thin, carried over by the cast's charisma, and it's not the only flaw in the movie. Many of their tricks are simply too slick to be anything but movie magic, Leterrier forgetting that for a magic trick to be believable, it has to look a little rough around the edges - a little 'real'. In this age of camera tricks and CGI, anything that looks too slick to be performed by a low-budget magician fails to convince as something they'd really be able to pull off. Too many cheats like that are used, until there's almost no belief that the lead quartet could really pull off most of their illusions, and you end up feeling that they're ahead of the FBI as the script has cheated because it wants them to be ahead, not because of skill and effort.Read more ›

By T. Cosens TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 5 April 2014
Format: Blu-ray
A starry cast head up this magical mystery film which provides plenty of action and some mind boggling tricks.

A group of solo magic performers are brought together to perform a series of heists. They each specialise in a different field of magic. You have the traditional magician, the escapologist, the hypnotist and the street artist. They all bring their skills to these over the top , flamboyant shows.

The action comes thick and fast and aside from the the shows themselves, it is consistently fresh. A fight between Jack and the police officer on their tails which results in a frantic car chase across the city is a standout scene. The magic shows themselves are full of wonder and special effects.

It is only towards the end that you realise all the film has done is dazzle you. You forget what you are actually watching and the plot then begins to become a little muddled and fizzles out a bit. The quartet of magicians are never really fully realised. You dont know much about their backgrounds and every now and again you get a small nugget of information that never really goes anywhere. Also the conclusion seems a bit of a let down given the spectacular shows on display. In fact it feels as though the writers were trying to be too clever for their own good.

However the film is ultimately a lot of fun and very watchable. Some great action set pieces and special effects helps eliminate any concerns you may have about the story. All of the actors involved are clearly enjoying themselves so you cant help but be swept along too. You would also be hard pushed to find a more exciting ensemble of stars this year!

Showy, spectacular but eventually quite hollow this is a very entertaining film. Just dont rely on the big finale too much!

I'd seen so many trailers of this movie, all of my friends had recommend this one was a good movie to go and see at the cinema. I actually missed the chance to go, but from buying it one afternoon, I can say, I was actually very impressed. It wasn't quite what I was expecting, all, I will say is four very clever magicians and a twist, that you will not be expecting.
