Now You See Me (2013)

2 Jun

Like any good magic trick, Now You See Me takes things one step at a time, building interests and expectations until the final reveal. The film starts with three twenty-somethings and Woody Harrelson robbing millions from a bank and outsmarting our nations FBI by playing magic tricks. Sounds campy right? What follows is a cat-and-mouse game between the magicians, Mark Ruffalo, and a mysterious third party lead by Morgan Freeman. Sure, it’s as outrageous as it’s premise may seem, but it’s a fun movie and I was kept well-entertained. Also worth mentioning is the outstanding cast who fill the movie with an overflow of witty banter and coolness – by now, what else can we expect from Jesse Eisenberg in a tux?

6/10 stars
