I was expecting V for Vendetta or maybe even Leverage level misdirect and overall speed and fun of a movie or show. It sucks when a movie about magic gives away all of its secrets in one breath. I wasn't surprised by anything but the gender of the "fifth horseman," I thought it was the other one, if you haven't seen the movie that isn't a spoiler. I liked the cast, I wish they had been given a better movie.

The movie, in general, was good. The magic tricks, the scenery, etc, was good. However, the plot twist at the end was confusing, and it really didn't make any sense. We were left dazed and confused with more questions than answers as we exited the theatre. Judging from the conversations we heard around us, everyone was stumped too. Meh. Wait for it to come out on video.

I love the French girl, but her role was poorly tacked on, almost as if it was an afterthought, cheesy and unnecessary. I know it's not suppose to be a credible story, but there was far too much detail just brushed over for my taste. This would be a pretty good made-for-TV movie. Also, I hate when incredibly important details are quickly introduced at the last moment to explain hugely important parts of the plot. Then of course, oh yeah, this guy was somehow responsible for my father's death...
I guess by today's standards (summer blockbuster standards at that) this is an acceptable couple hours of entertainment. I thought it was an interesting idea. Poorly executed, very poorly written, extremely poorly constructed.

I really liked this movie. It kept me guessing the whole time and I couldn't figure out the ending. I found it very entertaining. Definitely a must see.

This movie has so many twists in it, you would think it would be boring. Not true! An edge of your seat thriller from beginning to end.
