PHOTOGRAPHY STUNTS WERE WELL DONE. STORY KEEP YOU IN SUSPENSE TILL THE END, WHEN THEY SUMMARIZED DIFFERENT EVENTS. ACTION SHOTS HAD PLENTY OF FIRE AND KEPT YOU RARING TO GO FOR MORE.

I do not go by the critic's reviews anymore but fans reviews ... most of the time the critics do not know what they are talking about and I am tired of reading their nonsense comments ...

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.

This movie is TERRIBLE.
A good surprise ending is one where you can look back through the movie and see many overlooked clues that hinted at the ending.
This one just comes out of the blue with no clues of any kind.
Mark Ruffalo is at no point believable in his role. Morgan Freeman plays basically the same sort of person he always does.
There is no rhyme or reason why the 4 magicians needed to be brought together to pull this off.
The explanations for the magic tricks are so ridiculous a 10 year old wouldn't buy them. (After all, they are totally impossible, but the movie tries to say otherwise.) In addition, the results, which are the motive behind the whole thing, would not hold up in the real world.
I can't recall the last time I was so disappointed in a movie.

I didn't see the Social Network but Jesse Eisenberg is great as a ******* you'd like to choke in this, so he must have been great.
