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.

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.

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 was entertaining with the "magic" tricks and special effects. Some parts were slow and I wanted the fast forward button. The score was wonderful and the cast fantastic.

This movie ranked right up there with Speed 2. Look it up. This movie had nothing, I mean absolutely nothing. People, Morgan Freeman fell asleep while being interviewed about this movie. I get that he's getting up in age but seriously, I would rather have the media talking about me sleeping on camera than about the biggest loser movie I was ever been a part of.
There were lots of shiny things on scene, but there was no plot, no acting(not good at least), and no sense. When the dust clears, this mess will rank way up the flops of the year if not decades lists.
Remember boys and girls, there is a reason a movie critic exists. I had forgotten and jumped on the LIKE everything bandwagon that seems all the rage right now. Not again.
If you want to argue with this review, YOU ARE HIGH.
