Much of what makes Now You See Me so entertaining — in a gaudy, disposable, Vegas act sort of way — is its ever-escalating ridiculousness.

By James Berardinelli
It's a little along the same lines as "Ocean's 11" in what it achieves and, like that film, there's plenty of Oscar power among the actors...

Entertainment Weekly

At times, Now You See Me suggests Christopher Nolan's "The Prestige" made with a throwaway wink.
Full Review

By William Goss
The film itself is sly and smug in kind, fleetingly enjoyable for all of its old-school showmanship and high-tech hokiness.

There's a great movie out now about magicians, sleight-of-hand maestros, illusionists, card and coin tricksters. Now You See Me is not that...

The editing of the action sequences is an insult to the idea of narrative clarity.

A superficially diverting but substance-free concoction, a would-be thriller as evanescent as a magic trick and one that develops no...

For all its showmanship, Now You See Me has a lot less up its sleeve than it lets on.

It's mostly smoke and mirrors. After Freeman's snooze became a YouTube fixture, the actor jokingly dismissed the nap, saying he was using...

This is a slick con, all flash and no substance. Now You See Me seems awfully sure of itself, with self-important, intrusive music,...

Do NOT listen to any of the critic reviews. I never do and hardly ever agree with them. Now You See Me is an action-packed one-of-a-kind thrill ride that left me amazed. I hardly ever write reviews (I...

Now You See Me is a fresh spin on a heist movie. Likeable characters, creative tricks, good acting, and a touch of action make for a smart and fun show. The one sore spot in this movie is the...

Entertaining. Nice twists and turns, some surprises. We never got bored, and didn't find much that was painfully obvious and predictable. We don't over-analyze plot points and evaluate how...

It WAS Entertaining

I can only imagine what the movie would've been like had they used the whole script. I remember when I was a tad younger and I would go to the movies and get drunk. My experience watching this...

This movie masters a concept shared by magic and movies: misdirection. As soon as you think you know what is going to happen, it takes you for a ride on a completely different direction. You'll love...

Just like Magic - you don't have to have meaningful depth for a movie to be good! Bad Critics!

It was a great movie with a great cast! No it won't win an Academy Award and believe me, I like my sub-titled foreign films like the best of the movie-watchers but a movie like this is fun,...

every now and then there is a movie that completely takes you away and into the movie. This is one of them, and the best movie I've seen in the last two years. Morgan is so good in his roll as...

Not as good as I expected!!!

The movie was decent. There was nothing extraordanary about it. I recommend waiting for dvd. It was not good enough to watch twice. There was a very strange twist at the end. It did not help the...
