  • Summary: A mix of intrigue, magic, romance and supernatural mystery beneath a dramatic context, this movie is beautiful above sad. I did not find any new or fresh property, but I would say the scenery and the cast, become the film in a sweet caress to my eyes.

  • Summary: If there's one thing that can be said for the Illusionist, it's that it's a very beautiful film, full of poetic moments and carefully composed shots. The script itself falls a little flat, as the characters fade into the background as more twists and turns are added into the plot.

  • Summary: Edward Norton was great, but I really liked Rufus Sewell as the prince. Of the two magician movies that were released around the same time (this and The Prestige) I far prefer this one.

  • Summary: This came out around the same time as 'The Prestige' and both movies looked very similar. 'Prestige' is easily the better film, but this movie was good in it's own right and had it's own cool twist. However, I can't forgive the casting of Jessica Biel.

Sploich Reviews The Illusionist (2010)

  • Excerpt: I wasn't a big fan of Sylvian Chomet's last film, The Triplets of Belleville. I thought it was okay but I had way too many problems with it. In his second major directorial effort, he seems to have fixed a lot of the problems in Triplets, only he has created a few new ones in the process.
