Unique, Keeps You on the Edge of Your Seat with All its Twists and Turns (by rannynm)
I absolutely love this film. "Now You See Me" is like nothing I've ever seen before. "Now You See Me" tells the story of a group of magicians called The Four Horsemen who use their skills to pull off some of the greatest international robberies of their generation. Featuring Daniel Atlas Jesse Eisenberg , Merritt McKenny Woody Harrelson , Henley Reeves Isla Fisher and Jack Wilder Dave Franco , the Four Horsemen make a dream team of street magicians. Since they have made their stunts public, allowing the world to "witness" the robberies, authorities are <more>
in hot pursuit of the four, now wanted criminals. Detective Rhodes Mark Ruffalo is accompanied in his search for the illusive magicians by Thaddeus Bradley Morgan Freeman and French detective Alma Dray Melanie Laurent . Will the Four Horsemen be able to pull of their final act without being caught, or will it be curtains for the criminal performers?The plot is so original and full of fresh ideas and witty comedy. I love how fast paced this film is, I swear there isn't a dull moment from beginning to end. The plot itself has so many twists and turns it should be a pretzel, but it keeps the audience guessing the whole time and hits you with major shock factor. The acting in this film is incredible. It features a group of incredible actors - Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson and many others. I love how each character has a unique quirk and personality that you can really see, but they all work together so well. The cinematography and special effects in this film are phenomenal. It is bursting with rich colors and textures, drawing you into the magic and making the illusions appear so real. The soundtrack is also amazing. It is suits each scene very well, while keeping a consistent theme and feel throughout the movie. "Now You See Me" is definitely not one to miss.It's hard for me to pick a favorite character because I love all of the Horsemen, but when it comes down to it I have to say I like the characters Daniel Atlas and Jack Wilder. Daniel, played by Jesse Eisenberg, often tries to assert himself as the head of the Four Horsemen. He is controlling, very specific and difficult to deal with, but he is also the funniest character which is attributed to all of his demanding qualities. I love every film Jesse Eisenberg is in and I think he is perfect for the role of Daniel Atlas. I also like Jack Wilder, played by Dave Franco, because he is the craftiest of the magicians. He isn't the "card trick" or "read your mind" type, he's just a good old fashioned pick-pocket for whom no door is ever locked.. He is sort of the "muscle" to the operation because he is able to help the horsemen get out of tight situations and he is also very funny.My favorite scene is when the Four Horsemen have to escape from the FBI after their second robbery. Jack Wilder has to stay behind to burn secret files. When he has an unexpected run-in with Detective Rhodes, an action filled fight sequence and high speed chase follow. This scene is filled with suspense, action and incredible stunts and it shows that the Horsemen are always two steps ahead.I recommend this film for ages 12+ because of violence and mild mature language. Overall I give "Now You See Me" 5 out of 5 stars. See Raven's video review on kidsfirst.org
Questions answered and what to love about this movie (by doublekkluke)
Despite all the nasty reviews it has received, I believe Now You See Me is one of the best movies ever, I watched it 7 times in 3 days and the thrill was never taken away, I just caught more of the plot. Who says in that it is impossible to re-watch, obviously they haven't tried it. People may say that there are some big plot holes, but I can fill in those because remember the closer you think you are, the less you actually see. explanation #1:spoiler: People say they tried so hard to steer the viewers away from guessing Dylan was behind it all and it fell apart, untrue, they give many <more>
big hints maybe not obvious ones but still. Merrit says he has big daddy issues, he gets protective, he fails from the start, he knows less than he should, he is dismissive about all magic, but pays really close attention to the parts about Lionel Shrike. #2:the eye, people say the movie would be better without it, but then what would their motivation be? They want to be great magicians and the way to get in as Alma explains is to blindly follow a chain of commands...#3 carousel ending, they said how Lionel Shrike performed his famous card in the tree trick with a man who worked at a carousel.#4Thaddeus Bradley framed, he debunked Dylan's father, which led to him doing the safe trick which led to his death so Dylan wanted to avenge his dad.#5 lack of character build up, false because it shows changes throughout, Jack, a kid, a con, he's scared, he's tired of being unappreciated, then he gets his big moment and he dies, but really he pulled off the whole end heist and finally changed like the card death symbolizes for ex. and there are many more things you probably missed by looking too closely, look at the big picture next time because the more you think you see, the easier it is to fool you.
Very entertaining with some originality (by Afflock)
Just caught the film on Friday opening weekend. To sum it up in one word is "entertaining". It has the special affects you would expect from ILM behind the scenes. While a few plot mechanism may seem familiar, there is enough original content and spin that it will keep your attention throughout. It has light humor throughout which keeps the experience light hearted. The strong points are the script, acting, directing, cinematography, and visual affects. Yes, it is about stage magicians, but movie magic is used to keep the illusion alive and not actual stage theatrics. The only <more>
noticeable weak point is it has potential to be a little bit better in execution of some of the plot twist and it keeps a few important details a little too subtle for one viewing for some viewers.It is a story driven film and not so much a character driven story. There is enough character development to make sense but not balanced enough to feel as engaged to every character. You will understand the characters but may not root for them as much as I'd like. Morgan Freeman certainly holds the screen well and his lines keep people up to speed if they miss something. His character is something of an in movie narrator, but done well from a writing and acting perspective. Jessie Eisenburg's character is also entertaining and engaging as one of the Four Horsemen the name of the magical stage performers .It has multiple plot twist, some big and some small. These keep you engaged and trying to guess the next move or explain what just happened. A good film to watch with friends and talk about afterwards.It has a good mass appeal and has only a little cussing 3 words I can remember , violence from car chases , or intense scenes magic tricks gone wrong where possible bodily harm is implied but not seen to not keep the younger viewers away. The plot twist may be too complicated for non-teenager youth. Overall it is very entertaining.
As someone who enjoys trying to figure out what's coming next 'Now You See Me' was incredibly entertaining. Perhaps you'll fare better in terms of whether or not you can guess what's happening but regardless it should be a fun exercise.Aside from that the performances were all really good. The director had a nice pace in terms of have things progressed and there didn't appear to be any parts of the movie where certain scenes were clearly sped up a personal pet peeve of mine .I was able to see a pre-screening for the movie so there could be some bias in my review free <more>
movie helps, right? but I am planning on going to see it later today so I obviously don't mind paying full price to watch it again. That and I've pretty much told everyone I know that they should see it in the nicest way possible in order to keep expectations reasonable.Definitely recommend you to go see it because it's a fun movie/experience :-
Great new thriller with an incredible plot! (by Meredithhughes)
I have to say I was skeptical about the movie when I first saw the trailer but I was blown away by how great the movie was when I saw it and I think it's one of my new favorites. The movie is a great mystery thriller with just the perfect amount of comedic aspects in it. I thought the acting was great in it with awesome performances from Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman, Jesse Eisenberg and Michael Caine. I also have to give Dave Franco some credit because I was pleasantly surprised with his acting and I thought he did a great job.Overall, the movie was fantastic and I <more>
recommend that everyone goes and sees it. The plot is so original and well thought out and it keeps you guessing the whole time with new twists all throughout the whole movie.I defiantly would give give it a solid 9.
MAGIC is always the answer to everything. (by andre_rox99)
NOW YOU SEE ME is crime/thriller film directed by Louis Leterrier, starring Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fischer, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman & Michael Caine.The film revolves around 4 magicians, who rob a bank, using magic. The police want to know how they did it, and why.The trailer of Now You See Me, was quite short, to be honest. It didn't reveal a whole lot of information, however, it gave just enough to engross the viewer. The idea of magic and detective worked quite well together and since it was a story never touched before, I decided to give it a shot, <more>
and so I booked my ticket for Now You See Me.My immediate conclusion at the end of this film: IT IS ONE HELL OF A TIME. Yes, magic and good acting has managed to get the better side of the audience. With such a great star cast, Now You See Me is a smart, intelligent film with many twists that will only be understood when watched under close attention. The final twist, at the end, is one you don't even see a mile away; its that good.So, Now You See Me is a great time. It takes a lot of thought though, but if you do so, its possible to understand the whole case and have a great experience. Like the title of this review says: magic IS always the answer to everything, including the ending.NOW YOU SEE ME: 9/10
Like a Vegas Show, Entertaining but Lacking of Much Else (by griffolyon12)
Imagine Now You See Me as Ocean's Eleven meets The Prestige and you sort of get what director Louis Leterrier was going for with this film. Is Now You See Me as successful as the aforementioned films? Not necessarily, but it's a fun movie that deconstructs the acts of modern magicians.The story follows four Vegas magicians, known as the Four Horsemen, who rob a bank in the middle of one of their shows. What follows is a cat-and-mouse thriller where the FBI chases after these magicians, always one step behind, trying to figure out how they did it.Where Now You See Me works best is when <more>
Leterrier creates cinematic sequences showing us how these magicians used real-life magic tricks to befuddle and dupe both their victims and the FBI. As well, if you want a film with twists and turns, this one will not disappoint. While most of the major twists can be found out before revealed, there is still a joy in watching those twists unfold, thanks to Leterrier's Sherlock Holmes' style of visual deduction. However, the script often falters in one of the most crucial areas, that of character.Leterrier and company are constantly trying to balance the breakneck pace with the large cast of characters, and it just leaves the characters hanging out to dry. Character development is sorely lacking in Now You See Me, to where I never really cared about any of the characters. Part of this is because the film is constantly shifting points of view. The first thirty minutes follow our Robin Hood-like magicians, and then it switches to the FBI agents tracking them down, but then the film has the magicians constantly one step in front of the FBI to the point that it makes the FBI often come across as buffoons, and I find it hard to care for characters who are so easily fooled. Ultimately, I feel that had the film focused entirely on one set of characters, like the magicians or the FBI, the film would have been stronger and been easier to find a focal point, but as it is the film's core is often muddled.While Now You See Me may not be a grand slam, it's still entertaining, thanks to the thrills and visual style of the film. Bottom line, if you're a fan of the heist genre, you'll like this movie. For me though, it just lacks a further script rewrite to have become one of the best examples of the genre.I give Now You See Me an 8 out of 10!
Solid acting, fun, and fast-paced...great job! (by Big_D_Box_Office_Score)
Eisenberg, as I'm sure many will notice, is beginning to develop his own typical character: the quick-witted, arrogant-yet-jittery, young smart guy. But instead of running facebook, this time he's one of the top magicians in the world. And he's perfectly cast for it.The movie follows 4 magicians or illusionists in various stages of their careers, as they all receive mysterious invites to join up. After meeting, the "Four Horsemen" go all Robin Hood, robbing banks and stealing from CEOs as part of their shows, and giving the money away to the audience. The Incredible <more>
Hulk I mean, Mark Ruffalo, plays the FBI agent trying to lock them all up, while Morgan Freeman plays the narrator explaining everything to you I mean, the ex-magician trying to debunk the magic really, that's just a clever way to get Freeman to narrate stuff Pros: - Everyone puts on a solid performance. No weak points acting-wise, great job on casting. - It's fast-paced, the action never hits any dull parts. And even the small romance scenes don't drag on long enough to take away from anything. You're pretty locked-in from start to finish. - Particularly great scenes between Eisenberg, Ruffalo, and Harrelson in the first half of the movie. - Great ending, if you've been paying attention. Cons: - You wish there was more dialog between Eisenberg and Harrelson. - The 2nd half of the movie might move a bit too fast again, pay attention. - Somebody thought this was a Marvel movie for like 5 seconds, and had The Hulk fighting Gambit wait is that a bad thing?...Overall, this movie is a solid flick with some great actors that you shouldn't sleep on. It clocks in at just under 2 hours, but it won't feel that long at all.
Loved this movie. Gotta say the "cool" factor got to me in every crucial aspect of this flick. It is difficult to be "cool" without being corny or coming off silly. Even Woody H. is getting to be enjoyable to me and he's never been one of my fav actors. The storyline is simple and it moves fast with no time to get bored. Each character is acted out really slick, not superficially deep although I would have enjoyed more character development and kept my attention.The two heavies, M. Freeman & M. Caine, were very good, of course, and give the movie two solid <more>
performances that complement very well the other cast members. Mark Ruffalo was spot on - gosh he's good, why hasn't he made more movies I wonder? Love him as the Hulk .Jesse Eisenberg is so dang believable that he better do something else quick or he's going to be forever etched in my mind as an illusionist! His character's glances and demeanor are great with, to me, an underlying sense of he can't believe how good he & the other 3 are at what they do. I loved that about each character - they weren't arrogant to the point of unbelievability or boredom. It's like they all were on a ride they could hardly believe. LOL, I kept looking at Isla Fisher and thinking, "Is that Amy Adams?" But I knew it couldn't be. And Dave Franco - the look-alike baby Franco brother did a good job with his smaller part.I know I've said it already, but this movie is cool. It had me believing that the tricks could be done. One of the best movies for what it is - entertainment, plain and simple. My friend and I left saying, "good movie, I liked that." Definitely a big screen movie.Oh, and guess what? They guessed the card I & my friend picked! How'd they do that??
