The closer you think you are, the less you’ll actually see.

An F.B.I. Agent and an Interpol Detective are tracking a team of illusionists who appear to be pulling off bank heists during their performances. Real magic? Or elaborate criminology?.
We are in the realm of the fantastical, where illusions and impossible tricks reside. It’s a nifty backdrop to this splendidly flashy slice of misdirection hokum. Our four magicians, each with their own personal skills – and calling themselves “The Four Horsemen” – enact a number of elaborate stage shows that has all members of the law baffled.
Their rich benefactor played by Caine, is smug about his charges, Freeman is the myth buster trying to unearth the secrets of the “four”, while the cops are constantly pulling their hair out. What does it all mean? How will it pan out at the end?. Well it’s great fun, the tricks are expertly staged, the cast give gravitas to their respective characters, if only the big reveal at the end wasn’t a bit too far out there…
There’s a bit of a steal and a nod to another heist caper film, while that finale can make or break your overall opinion of the piece. Yet the journey is so enjoyable and intriguing, it’s kind of forgivable anyway… 8/10

Like a Vegas Show, Entertaining but Lacking of Much Else
Imagine Now You See Me as Ocean’s Eleven meets The Prestige and you sort of get what director Louis Leterrier was going for with this film. Is Now You See Me as successful as the aforementioned films? Not necessarily, but it’s a fun movie that deconstructs the acts of modern magicians.
The story follows four Vegas magicians, known as the Four Horsemen, who rob a bank in the middle of one of their shows. What follows is a cat-and-mouse thriller where the FBI chases after these magicians, always one step behind, trying to figure out how they did it.
Where Now You See Me works best is when Leterrier creates cinematic sequences showing us how these magicians used real-life magic tricks to befuddle and dupe both their victims and the FBI. As well, if you want a film with twists and turns, this one will not disappoint. While most of the major twists can be found out before revealed, there is still a joy in watching those twists unfold, thanks to Leterrier’s Sherlock Holmes’ style of visual deduction. However, the script often falters in one of the most crucial areas, that of character.
Leterrier and company are constantly trying to balance the breakneck pace with the large cast of characters, and it just leaves the characters hanging out to dry. Character development is sorely lacking in Now You See Me, to where I never really cared about any of the characters. Part of this is because the film is constantly shifting points of view. The first thirty minutes follow our Robin Hood-like magicians, and then it switches to the FBI agents tracking them down, but then the film has the magicians constantly one step in front of the FBI to the point that it makes the FBI often come across as buffoons, and I find it hard to care for characters who are so easily fooled. Ultimately, I feel that had the film focused entirely on one set of characters, like the magicians or the FBI, the film would have been stronger and been easier to find a focal point, but as it is the film’s core is often muddled.
While Now You See Me may not be a grand slam, it’s still entertaining, thanks to the thrills and visual style of the film. Bottom line, if you’re a fan of the heist genre, you’ll like this movie. For me though, it just lacks a further script rewrite to have become one of the best examples of the genre.
I give Now You See Me an 8 out of 10!
Now You See Me… kinda wish I hadn’t…
This movie really leads you to believe that its going to be exciting, intriguing and thrilling. Instead, you may come out of it feeling like you yourself have had a magic trick played on you.
The characters are cocky and annoying. Its hard to develop any sort of connection with them. All the magic tricks and illusions are very unrealistic. The “romantic” element of the story is incredibly forced; almost thrown in at the last moment because the producers were like “oh ya! we forgot to add the romance”.
There’s nothing subtle about the tone of the movie. You’re constantly reminded that there is a mysterious element that you are not seeing. And when it is finally revealed at the end, there is hardly any surprise at all.
Worst of all, there are too many things that happen in the movie inexplicably. You find yourself waiting for information that never comes. Questions are posed that leave you wondering why something happened, but then they’re just abandoned and never reexamined.
This movie made me angry. I felt like it was condescending to me the entire time. Fast talking “quick witted” characters using dialogue spoken so fast with convoluted vocabulary, camera shots that were shaky and always moving. It was trying to confuse me with smoke and mirrors to make me think that it was exciting, intriguing and thrilling, but realistically it was not.
