This was a very entertaining movie. It wasn't hard to determine who was behind the magical blueprints that the 4 Horsemen were invited to see. None the less, it was a good movie.

As is often the case with surprisingly gratifying movie theater experiences - walked in with zero expectations; left thinking it was a fantastic, totally entertaining couple of hours. Great energy & pace. One novelty: The movie successfully pulls a card trick on the theater audience. Woody Harrelson kills it. Rufalo is bearable for, maybe, the first time ever.

The movie wasn't bad, but not as good as the trailer made it look. It went too fast, the characters weren't developed and therefore didn't really draw you into the plot. It was a good idea, just not executed very well.

Entertaining action comedy about four magicians whose first show concludes with a trick that appears to have them rob a bank in Paris while they are onstage in Vegas. They shower the audience with money at the conclusion of the show, which obviously makes for a very enthusiastic audience. The magicians are trying to right wrongs, although if you are paying attention it's not hard to figure out who their actual target is. The cast is great from top to bottom and if you can sustain disbelief sufficiently this is pretty fun, if a little overlong.
