Not enough Jessie in my opinion. To much spent with the others. Not that its a bad thing but the trailers led you to think it was his film. The whole film is great with twists and turns thru out the run. Everyone does a great job, also not enough Michael Caine, to much Mark Ruffelo. You'll understand why when you see it. I highly recommend this great who done it movie. For me its a Blue-Ray buy.

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.

This is for sure worth seeing. I thought it was gonna be ok but all the cool stuff in the previews. Dead wrong. Great twists, great action, great actors/actresses, the whole package. Not a movie of the year, but for sure MORE than worth seeing.

Fun flick. When I saw the trailer last Fall, I made a note to go see it. Wasn't disappointed. Funny where it needs to be with witty banter between the leads, and solid performances by the "big" names (Caine, Freeman).

Too Clever By a Half

The premise of the movie -- expert magicians using illusions and magic to pull off three huge robberies to fulfill a vendetta -- is interesting and the movie contains several unexpected plot twists. It does keep you guessing until the end. But the movie goes too far in the complexity and sophistication of the illusions involved in the three heists so that they seem farcical and almost cartoonish. I don't regret seeing the movie, but thought it would have been much better if the illusions hadn't been so outlandish.
