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.

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.

Too many people feel the need to dissect a movie. I just want to be entertained! Now You See Me was entertaining. I really enjoyed it.
P.S. Isla has great legs!

You can sum up "Now You See Me" in one word, "fun." There's twists and turns and lots of misdirection. The bad guys get in the end, but you're not always sure who the bad guys are.

Really was not very good, the plot if it had one was disjointed and just felt like one long magic show that wasn't even exciting because on film anything can be done.
Didn't like the casting either, except of course Denis Freeman he's always good.
