Now You See Me (2014)

A very clever plot with lots of tells. Three of four horsemen leave a lot to be desired. I found them collectively annoying. They are Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg ,Isla Fisher, the fourth Dave Franco does a respectable job.  Morgan Freeman mails it in. The other major star Mark Ruffalo is great. Melanie Lourent the French actress who lit up Inglorious Bastards also shines. Louis Leterrier who has a couple of Transporter movies under his belt directs with authority. A movie that was not magic but deserved better than the 50% Rotten Tomatoes gave it. If the horseman could had have galloped it would have been a huge hit.

Three Stars

  1. Good review Steve. Too many twists sort of put a bad taste in my mouth after this. It was fine entertainment, just a bit cheap because of that ending.
