The movie is full of visually amazing spectacle. The surprise ending is a little strange but its works. I hope there is a sequel. I would like to see more of the Four Horsemen.

I've always been a fan of magic, illusions, and these types of movies in general. I haven't seen a movie this well executed since The Prestige! I really enjoyed the movie's plot and how well the actors/actresses executed their roles. I would say it is a must see! =)

This movie is more like a lame magic trick than an exciting adventure. With so many misdirects, the movie becomes more muddled and contrived than interestingly clever. Too much vital info is underplayed and lost and too much is also neatly explained away by one observant character in a single scene. Mark Ruffalo is a grand highlight as always. Jesse Eisenberg is especially annoying: it's like watching Zuckerberg the insecure magician. Wait for video if you're at all interested.

It's easy to pull off elaborate magic tricks in a movie. This movie doesn't even try hard to make us believe that the magicians involved in these elaborate schemes possess any special powers. They are simply good at pranks and illusions, including mentalism, but the tricks they do are clearly within the realm of the movie and not enough effort is placed in making us believe that any of these tricks are possible outside of the Hollywood movie universe. Anyway, It's BS at its best and very little effort is placed on covering the BS smell created by the story. I can't recommend it on any level. It's a shame, too, because the actors are great and I was looking fwd to seeing this cast work as a team.

Wonderful! Totally different, fun, great ending and everyone applauded at the end.
The audience really like it!
A few unanswered along the way, but, total entertainment. Need more writing like this,
editing was good. Only comment, love interest could have been developed a little more,
but, that was not the point of the picture.
Everyone could see this film. Good for 11 yrs and up.
