I’m gonna be hard to really talk about this one simply because it was really hard to understand what get what the films was even about until the very end of the film. As time went on and I had more and more time to really think about what I’ve seen I came to the idea that, Now You See Me is a really great film.
Sure it’s not done in the way we’re use too, they leave a lot of information out, much of the film is a guessing game, who did this? Well the ending is shocking and I wont spoil it for you, I expect for you to just go out and watch it. However let me tell you why I think this film is good.
It’s about Magic
While I watched the film The Incredible Burt Wonderstone and it also about magic and yeah I did give that film a low rating. However this is about the big stage magic and some of the tricks are really well done. The characters are all tied very well with what they do and I believe in them as the film goes on, not to talk too much about it, but Wonderstone was lacking that element.
Now some of the other elements of this film, it follows a group of magicians who come together by a card given to them by some unknown force. The film then jumps to them doing a show and they’ve been doing it for a while. They go about and rob a bank and it looks really awesome and cool how it goes down. Then the best part happens, they really some how did rob the bank.
The chase and thrill ride starts to what comes around to being some really crazy tricks and the FBI are hot on them, but they can’t catch them in the act. All the actors in this film are wonderful and I know the theme and directions and some of the unexplained events and reasons are confusing in some points.
I know there are times when this movie really goes to make a really good film at the end of it, even with those problems I did find with the film. Honestly I enjoy it hard to follow the first time, but once you get it, it’s pretty awesome. I really wish they’d do more films like this because it was different in a good way. I recommend renting it if you’re not a fan of thrillers like this.
