Now You See Me (2013) Review

I went to cinema to watch this movie because of Alfred and Fox. I always have faith in their movie.

The poster is very much look likes Ocean Twelve and the movie is also about a catch and run between a group of modern Robin-hood thieves and FBI agents, except they were a group of young magician.

The trailer is interesting, the casting is promising. I did enjoyed the movie. The theme is fresh and the magic from the start is exciting. Everyone love magic show, and will love even more if the magician is good looking. But, the whole story is lack of logical plots, characters development and substance. This movie is an amateur junior compares with Ocean Eleven. But, it is enjoyable, a popcorn movie suitable for Friday night after a long and tiring week.

The starting of the movie is pretty cool but since the FBI and Interpol couple came in, the whole story became lame and stupid.

The magics they performed were improbable and lame after the explanation from Morgan Freeman. A extremely suspicious Interpol agent, obsessed with magic for no reason and no determination on catching the thieves.

The teleportation, the rebuild of the bank’s vault, the hijacking of the bank truck, the hypnotism, the real time robbing of a billionaire, the giant bubble, the highway chasing, the giant mirror trick in the vault and etc. Come on man, do not make your audience angry, you are making the audience feeling stupid for watching the movie. Do not push all the unlogical, ridiculous plot as magic. The twist at the end, so the hulk was a great magician who managed to enter the top of the magicians circle yet at the same time a busy FBI and also a revenger?

Overall, the movie is still enjoyable, just do not try hard and be Homer! Grab your popcorn, rest your brain and watch with your family or friends.

My rating: 5.5/10
