Editorial Reviews

Product Description

In this visually spectacular blend of astonishing illusions and exhilarating action from director Louis Leterrier (Clash of the Titans), four talented magicians mesmerize an international audience with a series of bold and original heists, all the while pursuing a hidden agenda that has the FBI and Interpol scrambling to anticipate their next move.

Cinematic sleight of hand and digital prestidigitation drive Now You See Me, a slick popcorn movie about four magicians coming together to pull off a heist and maybe right a wrong at the same time. Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco play the Four Horsemen, who each have their individual skills (Harrelson is a master hypnotist, for example) but have combined to put on an amazing show in Vegas--a show that culminates in robbing a French bank. The authorities don't know how they did it, but an FBI agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol agent (Mélanie Laurent, Inglourious Basterds) start tracking the Four Horsemen as they prepare a second performance in New Orleans. A professional skeptic (Morgan Freeman), however, suggests that these performances are only the preamble to a much bigger trick, and that maybe the Four Horsemen themselves are misdirection. The excellent cast (which also includes Michael Caine) and the unrelenting pace give Now You See Me the illusion of sense and coherence, and the movie can be fun if you surrender to it. Don't think too hard about the illusions themselves; the real fun of magic is not being able to figure out how it's done, whereas we know exactly how the "magic" in Now You See Me works: editing and CGI special effects. Even the few tricks that are supposedly explained fall apart with a moment's thought--they wouldn't actually work. The most compelling element of the movie is the developing romance between Ruffalo and Laurent, two charming actors who know how to let emotion simmer under the surface. That's a different--and much more enticing--kind of magic. --Bret Fetzer

5.0 out of 5 stars Now you see me -extended cut! September 7, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
Compare with the original cut, the story and relationship among characters are much more intense and make sense better!
I watched Now you see me 3 times in the theater and bought the bluray/dvd combo, yeah I'm quite a big fan of the film and waiting for the sequel as well.
This is why I'm giving 5 stars :) Please enjoy!

5.0 out of 5 stars exhilarating fun May 13, 2013
I just saw this movie at a screening tonight and more than once the audience cheered and clapped with excitement. This is and intelligent, entertaining film that's fun, funny, and exhilarating -- refreshing in the summer of sequel blockbusters a la Ocean's Eleven. I didn't think it'd be this good, but the plot is written extremely well. I don't want to spoil anything, thus I'll just say that this is one of the best executed cat-and-mouth chases I have seen where everything is truly an illusion.

Don't blink, or you'll miss a lot of the intricacies of the plot. This is definitely a movie to watch and rewatch several times.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE CLOSER YOU LOOK, THE LESS YOU SEE July 9, 2013
The film opens with four quick character introductions of "street" magicians. Daniel (Jesse Eisenberg) uses street magic to meet pretty women. His former assistant Henley (Isla "Legs" Fisher) does a stage act. McKinney (Woody Harrelson) is a hypnotist who uses his ability to shake down people. Jack (Dave Franco) uses his slight of hand to pick pocket people.

The four are summoned by Tarot cards (Lover, High Priestess, The Fool, and Death) to a common location. After the credits they become the world's greatest stage magicians while performing crime. They are followed by FBI Dylan (Mark Ruffalo) and Interpol Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent). Meanwhile Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) is exposing their seemingly impossible tricks on the Internet.

The film keeps you interested as to their next trick. The movie drops clues as to what is going on, but again there is the classic misdirection here too. It is s fun popcorn action film filled with mystery, drama, action, and humor.

Parental Guide: One f-bomb. no sex, or nudity. Some sex discussion. Woman in bra.

5.0 out of 5 stars Keeps you guessing just like any great magic show June 21, 2013
What an amazing movie!

The first time I tried to watch it I ended up getting sick from bad Mexican food so we went and tried it again.
Boy am I glad we did!

The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo

The greatest thing about this movie is that it keeps throwing things at you that you don't see coming. For those of who you don't know, the movie is about four magicians who are brought together by these special cards. They become worldly famous and are under the management of one man. The movie focuses on their last three shows and how they tie in together with each other.

They did an awesome job at keeping the audience surprised. Even my boyfriend was surprised and that's saying something! The movie makes you think and wonder and it keeps your attention the entire time! The ending is completely unknown throughout the movie, unlike all those other movies where you know the ending right from the start. This one will have you saying "WHAT JUST HAPPENED?!"

Alesha's Rating:
10 out of 10 for sure!

4.0 out of 5 stars Twisted smart plot September 13, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
If you like movies with good acting, fast action, and twisted plots - this is a very good one. You must pay close attention to the detail to get the whole story but when you do you'll be rewarded. I loved it but my wife was luke warm.

5.0 out of 5 stars Now You See Me, surprise hit of the Summer June 10, 2013
Now You See Me is take what you know about the Ocean's Eleven movies and other caper films with magic used as a secret alias and what do you get is a better than expected caper film that ranges from Morgan Freeman to Michael Caine. It can keep you guessing with so many plot twists to keep you entertained and happy all the way to the very end and talking about it with friends or perhaps the person sitting next to you. This breaks the history of movies that have magic themes in the film while this film is more that a magic flick but a fast-paced action movie, it's a fresah film to get people away from the big mighty blockbusters out there right now and I will get this movie when it arrives on DVD very soon!

4.0 out of 5 stars Come in close...but leave your brain at the door! September 1, 2013
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Now You See Me, the hit caper thriller from Louis Leterrier, and serves up the most fast-paced, glitzy, action-packed, twisty-turny, fun, crowd-pleasing cocktail imaginable...but forgets to make any of it make sense. The CONS of Now You See Me, and then PROS are conjured up by me below. AlakaZAM! Let us begin.

CONS: Breezy fun as it might be, when the movie tries to be serious it fails miserably. When the movie races at fast-pace, giving us sleight of hand, impossible feats of magic, and witty banter, all is fine and dandy. When Now You See Me tries to explain itself logically, it comes off as trying too hard. As Michael Caine says in The Prestige, we _want to be fooled. But we don't want to be cheated, and the admittedly unforseen twist ending was shocking for one breathless second, until we realized how extraordinarily unlikely, impossible, and silly it actually was. And also, the use of CGI for magic is a dubious choice. When we know what we are seeing onscreen was generated by computers and some greenscreen, it's harder to feel amazed and awed by the spectacular tricks.

PROS: But hey, I'm taking this too seriously! NYSM is the perfect film for a night of carefree entertainment. Now You See Me combines healthy doses of action, humour, twists and turns, suspense, and a fresh sense of fun to make one of the rare original but engaging blockbusters out this year. It's no wonder Now You See Me was a surprise hit, outgrossing The Lone Ranger and Pacific Rim in the States.

It's success is due in no small part to it's talented and diverse cast.
