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. The cast play off each other well, Woody Harrelson's smart mouthed mentalist being the pick of the bunch and the magic-based format provides plenty of opportunities for flashy set pieces and even an exciting...
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. The pair approaches an ex magician names Thaddeus Bradley. Screenplay was top notch with lines: “I hate people who exploit other people.” My life is happier when I believe that.
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 2013.
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". It was not a spectacular movie but it was not bad at all.
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. Mark Ruffalo is the movies saving grace (at least up until the end.) The movies script is clumsy and clunky but Ruffalo brings so much charisma and fun to his roll, that he almost single handedly makes up for it; almost.
Excerpt: Now You See Me (2013) PG-13 A team of illusionists, led by J. Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg) and Merritt (Woody Harrelson), are robbing banks while performing magic in front of audiences. Its up to an FBI agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol detective (Melanie Laurent) to not only stop the team, but to find out what’s the team’s magic secret of robbery success? This is another film where a great cast is let down by a lesser script.
