Now You See Me Review


Magic is a part of the movies; misdirection, tricks up the sleeves, things not turning out as they appear, being shown only what is allowed. That makes movies about magic perfect for the movie magic treatment. Now You See Me marks the second film about magic this year with the other being the comedy The Incredible Burt Wonderstone which wasn’t as successful as it wished to be nor that well received critically. So this marks the second in the calendar, one which should be supported as it features a strong cast of not exactly A-listers and is an original idea rather than a sequel or adaptation. Louis Letterier is at the helm after the not-so-great remake, Clash of the Titans, as well as the troubled, muddled The Incredible Hulk. The director does receive too much of a hard time considering his debut, Unleashed, is a fantastic action film.
