Summary: A few twists and a few turns keep this movie watchable. It starts off at a frantic pace and just keeps on running from there. Thought all the parts were well played and the music certainly helped to ratchet up the excitement factor. Good idea for a movie and well executed overall. Certainly one to add to your list.
Summary: The trailer makes it look fantastic, the film didn't quite live up to it. It's clever and watchable but there was something missing, I guess I just didn't find myself liking the main characters.
Summary: This film kept us at the edge of our seats. The twist and turns were amazing. The red herrings kept us guessing until the end. What a twist was not expecting it. Good entertainting film to watch.
The plot emobodies the principle of magic. Be nice if as much effort had been put into the characters.

Summary: Points for the flashy effects and 'plot twists'. But there is a lot lacking in a lot of areas, such is the falsity of magic by the art of misdirection. Try to guess the ending if you think you are up to it. But don't try to develop a working theory from plot points as many are misdirection or just omissions of truth. I had the why early on but not the who or the how.
Summary: An excellent start but it then runs out of ideas and tries to keep your attention by fast talking and dramatic car chase scenes. Gets a bit boring by the end which has an unusual twist but nothing spectacular, which is hinted at the beginning.
Summary: Very good film for me it ticked all the boxes. To quote one of the characters to be a magician you have to be the smartest guy in the room. This film is intelligent, funny in the right places, very past paced even had a bit of free running (Parlour) for the action scenes. The film is in the right balance lots of things going on but everything is done well. The story 4 street magicians/con artists are brought together.
