Excerpt: This movie was for me one big magic trick. Like many, I thought the beginning of this film was great. The presentation of the "Four Horsemen" was well done. Especially Woody was brilliant as the mentalist. His humor is natural and doesn't feel like forced or exaggerated.
Excerpt: A group of small time conjurers and hypnotists are recruited by a mystery figure to stage a series of high profile Robin Hood style robberies. Now You See Me is a flashy, mainstream crowd pleasing thriller that will appeal very much to fans of the Ocean's films.
Summary: Owen McKenna, Rio Rancho NM. Good entertaining film. The illusions performed in this movie were impressive, some good old magical tricks were used. The 4 Horsemen as they were called, each played their perspective roles well.
Excerpt: J. Daniel “Danny” Atlas, Henley Reeves, Jack, and Merritt McKinney were invited by Arthur “Art” Tressler to perform as the Four Horsemen. FBI agent Dylan Rhodes and Alma Dray from Interpol are tasked to investigate the mysterious heist of robbing a bank by the Four Horsemen.
Excerpt: I'm sure that if you look closely (as the film suggests in the opening) you will be able to pick apart the flaws in this fun caper - but I don't like to over-analyze things. Now You See Me just provides a great time - and features a killer cast - in one of the more enjoyable films I have seen in...
Excerpt: A team of illusionists(Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, dave Franco, Woody Harrelson) pull of some million dollar heists over the whole world, which is why they are hunted by the FBI and Interpol(Mark Ruffalo and Melanie Laurent)... I actually don't know why everyone hates "Now you see me".
Summary: I liked, perhaps even loved, everything about this movie except that it portrayed Morgan Freeman's character, the skeptic, as a scoundrel; and its message that magic is real is dangerous for society.
Excerpt: Now You See Me is a crime thriller about four magicians who are brought together by a mysterious fifth magician. The movie (despite its marketing) actually focuses more on an FBI agent (played by Mark Ruffalo) who is trying to stop them.
