Very entertaining movie with a great fun cast. I thought this was going to be like Jumper with better actors and my husband had to drag me to it. It is in fact nothing like that and I'm so glad I went it's just a lot of fun like you want a summer movie to be and feels like you saw a really good magic show (I'm not a magic geek but who doesn't want to be amazed!)

It was ok. Was I entertained? Yes. But being entertained can't make me overlook the UNBELIEVABLY impossible scenarios in this movie. I know this is a movie about magic, misdirection, illusions and all that crap. But come on. The ending was SOOOOOOOOOO far fetched that it was border line retarded.

Great effects! Cast was perfect casting! Many twists, lots of action.....very well done! I've seen it twice and will own it when it comes out on video!
Great Big Screen Movie! Small screen won't do it justice.

I was really, really looking forward to this movie. I mean, they've been pushing advertising for this for months and months. I thought the plot would be on par with the tricks that wowed us in the previews. Not so much. With such a great cast it is inexcusable that this movie is barely watchable.
I felt cheated at the end, and found myself growing more and more frustrated with the focus the movie put on Ruffalo's detective character as the movie dragged on.
I walked out of the theater feeling very let down, and that is a truly rare thing for me. I was so angry at this movie that I created this account and wrote my first ever review. It's not the worst movie ever, and is probably worth a Saturday night on Blu Ray, but there is no reason to pay $10 a ticket to see this now. The only thing that isn't below average about this movie is the cast.

I loved it....then again I am a Jesse Eisenberg junkie. That man could read the phone book and I'd give him an Oscar nod anyway.
That being said....I did feel like the plot was a bit too much and quite complicated. Also, some plot ends weren't tied up at the end. The ending was indeed though, a complete and utter surprise.
