This movie was a lot of fun! I was on the edge of my seat, anxious to see the magic tricks, how they did the tricks, and what they were going to do next to top the last trick...especially to pull of this heist on a global scale. And the end completely threw me for a loop. Love the surprise ending. All the actors did a great job!

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.

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!
