Summary: Entirely predictable tricks or illusions often turn out to be more entertaining precisely because we know that we are being taken for a ride, and yet wait for the thrill of the final flourish. This film is just that. From the beginning of this movie 4 persons are presented before us, who, with considerable charm and style, make us root for them. In sharp contrast, it also sets up other characters in shades of gray and black.
Conclusion: Now You See Me was brilliant, Its rare you get a magic based movie, which is a shame because I love magic (not that I can do any). Not only was it very interesting to see all their tricks and how they did them, it was also very well thought through. Don't expect a Harry Potter type movie, this seems very much real. Every actor played their characters brilliantly as I believe none of them have ever done anything like this, apart from Michael Caine, in 'The Prestige'.
