Now You See Me: Revealing Magic’s Secret!

Last year, K/O Paper Products, Summit Media Entertainment and Lionsgate released and produced a new film titled Now You See Me. It is directed by Louis Leterrier (Transporter, Unleashed, The Incredible Hulk & Clash of the Titans) and written by Boaz Yakin, Edward Ricourt and Ed Solomon. It features an amazing ensemble starring Jesse Eisenberg (Rio, The Social Network, Zombieland), Mark Ruffalo (The Hulk in Avengers, The Kids Are All Right), Isla Fisher (Wedding Crashers, The Great Gatsby), Woody Harrelson (2012, The Hunger Games, Zombieland) and Dave Franco (21 Jump Street, Warm Bodies).

Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

The movie packs an amazing story, cast, and effects. Joining this package is its charming and alluring music.

The story and plot are really praiseworthy. The connections between each of the characters were spectacular. Themovie was also filled with great plot twists that will fill you with awe. I can say that the film’s writers were really genius to be able to create such masterpiece that will surely tickle everyone’s brain questioning how this and that happened.

Another thing that makes this movie great is the ensemble of casts and their performance. The cast performed very well and created each magic trick fooling the viewers. Surely they were taught and trained even before the shooting commenced. And I can say, they really did a nice job!

A downside of this movie is its ending. Its not just a cliff hanger, but it supplied us an insufficient ending. If you’ve watched this movie and some of your questions werent answered, your one of us that is wanting an explained and complete ending. I think its really a good thing they ordered a sequel for this film.

As a conclusion, I can conclude that Now You See Me is a movie with an amazing plotline, great casting and a bit of a let down ending. If you really wanna know some dangerous and magic tricks that will surely put you in jail or no, I’m telling you, WATCH THIS MOVIE!!
