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.

This a review of the product, not the movie (at least at first).

So far I have watched in both a full hd tv and a HD 720 projector. The colours are vibrant even in the projector and the blacks are satisfactory. Using a 5.1 to 7.1 product was as good as it could have been and there were no scenes in shich I had to play with the volume. That means that they did a really good job with the audio of this movie. The experience was enjoyable and everything a bluray should offer.

The bluray comes with two choices. You either watch the there cal version or the extended. This is a features not many blurays have. The last time I came across this feature was in Beauty and the Beast. Usually they release two different copies of the movie and name the extended a collectors edition. That was not what happened with this one.

A goof is the addition of a final scene in one version which takes you in the desert with the gang getting their next mission. The reality is that they wear different clothes because the scene was a merge of one deleted and one alternative scene. Nonetheless it's great to see what happens after even if after a closer inspection you realise what they did in the cutting room.

Finally the menu has an easter egg which completely fooled my mother and the navigation is smooth and follows alog if order.

The movie is enjoyable and the features of the blu ray enhance the experience. For me it was a merge of The Tourist and Sherlock Holmes, while heavily sparkled with magic. Not bad,not bat at all.

Now You See Me (NYSM) is the tale of four street magicians, united by an unknown master to perform the greatest heist on Earth. Lead by the showman Danny Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg - The Social Network) the team are all recruited by a tarot card. Their first show, they rob a bank in Paris - seemingly whilst on the stage in Las Vegas and scatter the haul into the audience. The people love them, the cops are all over them but to formally charge them means that the Federal government believes in magic on an institutional level. Hands tied, the cops are frantically trying to unravel their act and call in magician-buster Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman - Oblivion) to work out just how they are doing their illusions. As the acts ramp up in scale and criminality, the desperation of the lead investigator Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo - Avengers Assemble) begins to show, will he manage to stop this quartet of magicians before they reveal their final flourish?

First, spoilers probably follow, so please stop reading here if you don't want to know what is wrong with this film. NYSM has some big names all around (Michael Caine, Freeman, Harrelson) and was marketed like some sort of intellectual magic-crime-film but unfortunately it's completely ruined by it's own theatrical trailer. Do yourself a serious favour and don't watch the trailer to NYSM if you intend on buying the DVD - also not something I can recommend.

Well where to start with this very original and thought provoking tale of deception and intrigue..

The film carries it's self very well from start to finish, we see 4 street magicians make their way to the top of their profession after they are recruited by a mystery person, they then perform in a Series of large stage shows in which they appear to pull off amazing heists and spread the wealth among their audience. My only disappointment with the story line was that we skip a year from their recruitment and go straight into the shows, there could have been a lot more depth in their progression and training together that we just don't see.
However the story line is intriguing and keeps you gripped right to the very end.

The acting itself is wonderful from the likes of Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine, they play their parts very well and the characters are very believable.

I will myself be buying a copy when it is released for my collection and I am sure I will watch it many times, although some things could be improved and there could be more depth in parts of the story line and the characters this is a fantastic watch and I am surprised anyone was didn't enjoy it.

Now You Buy It.
