A great movie, one of the best of this year. There was a bit of confusion at one point in the plot, but nothing serious.
The film's masterful storytelling did its job. The message was clear. No need to overdo.
The editing and acting was on point. However, it felt like a cheap remake of The Prestige/The Illusionist meets Oceans 11. I found the entire thing unoriginal with cheap camera tricks showing the magic tricks. The movie sets up the plot so the audience expects something spectacular and smart, but it ends up being a cheap way out. I was engaged throughout the entire thing but was left disappointed at the end. Maybe I had high hopes for a magic trick flick.
This film is so bad. What kind of person is a film about magic aimed at? I found it offensive. I'm stuck watching this rubbish on TV and am wondering how people can produce something like this and think it's worth putting their name to. Magic is bad enough to watch live when you at least have some mild curiosity about how it's done. But to make a film about it with cgi and impossible stunts! This film is so very bad. AbrakaBADra!
Nobody here? Spoiler warning: The movie is s parable of the 2008 financial crisis. The opening "bank robbing" is the General Societe, the Englishmen stands for the AIG in London and the head of all even looks like Timothy Geithner. Morgan Freeman is Obama. But while this gives the movie some depth and a bit to laugh it's full of simply unbelievable story telling (remember the trick in the FBI cell of one of the magicians who was cuffed and managed to free himself while cuffing the investigator? While this scene is later in the movie analyzed (because of course there is a camera in the cell) one asks herself why this analyzing wasn't done immediately? I for sure would want to know asap how this could happen if I were an agent ...) But then again, look what "errors" happened under the FED in real life... Apart from that 2008/Wall-Street analogy the movie has it's boring action sequences (oh yeah let's crash some cars again), fast video like cutting ... an average movie.
I read no reviews of this movie( so was not tainted by someone else's viewpoint)and watched it on Netflix the other night. I for one thoroughly enjoyed this movie for what it was, a romp through some of the things 'so called magicians' get up whilst setting up 3 cons which get bigger every time. Suspend belief, stop being hyper critical and just enjoy. Of course Michael Caine plays Michael Caine again but he's made a career of it anyway!
