Well Worth Watching!!

Most of us in the UK have seen the BBC Series 'Hustle' and it's pretty good although it suffers that it only has an hour to get to twists/plots 'in your face' - however it's very good.

'Now You See Me' is a film that gives you a whole lot more time to really explore this sort of caper - and it does it really well indeed - yes, there was some of it that was pretty easy to guess, but there was a lot more that wasn't.

The feel of the film was very fine indeed and there were many good performances - but this film was all about the plot (twists and turns abounding!) and it worked really very well - the plot and cast worked well together and the film sped by (the best way of judging a film!). It was a great way of enjoying a couple of hours and held my attention throughout...

....Ok, some of it was pretty easy to see 'it coming', but for me that didn't matter - it's only a film and I can forgive the makers for some of the contrived scenes - there was a lot more to this film that I really enjoyed and will go back to again.... and so should you!

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.

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.

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.

An unusual, entertaining and thought provoking film. It's the story of four magicians, each with unique talents, who are summoned to a mysterious meeting before eventually seeming to rob a bank during their show. They are pursued by the FBI and a man who seeks to uncover and expose them. But what is real and what is illusion?
An intelligent and engaging film with a good cast. If you enjoy a film that makes you think, this is definitely worth a go.

I think a fair description of this film is like an episode of The Hustle but on steroids.
Okay the acting is not the best you will ever see but its far from rubbish.
The 4 main characters you may not care about but this does not detract from the enjoyment of the film.
It has been labelled by other reviewers that if you know anything about magic you will find this film utter garbage. Fortunately then that I am not a magician nor do I aspire to be, I merely watched this as an avid film buff.
The production of the film is commendable & I am sure would have looked even better had a I purchased a blu ray
I can heartily recommend this as an enjoyable way to spend around 2 hours

A transparent climax; an awful twist. Likeable moments litter the first half but they are buried beneath nonsense. The fantastic cast simply can't manage to hide an offensively stupid script. I don't like to leave negative reviews, but I felt I had to level the playing field a little with all the glowing commentary which somehow surrounds this film. I awarded two stars because I actually enjoyed the first thirty minutes, and up to a point found the overt stupidity endearing. With regard to the film as a whole, two stars is probably very generous.
