I've read Christopher Priest's novel about dueling late 19th-century London magicians. It's a novel written in epistolary format with each chapter and section written as entries into the journal of one of the main characters in the story. The novel itself is pretty straightforward as it tells the story in near chronological order. I was hesistant to embrace this film adaptation when I first heard about it since alot of the mystery of of the story wouldn't translate so well in film if they followed the strict order of how the story was told in the novel. For Christopher Nolan and his brother, Jonathan, to just adapt the novel straight-out would've made for a dull and boring mystery-thriller.Read more ›
Set in the world of magic, two practitioners (Bale and Jackman) start out together in an act devised by Michael Caine. When a tragedy strikes, Jackman loses his wife and holds Bale accountable. Though they go their separate ways, they never mentally disconnect. Jackman plots revenge, Bale retaliates and their lives become a complex game of one-upmanship--as each strives to be the better illusionist, to boast the better trick. The film is a sleek and nasty mechanism as rage and jealousy propel the action. While this has left some people feeling cold--there is no one to particularly root for--I found it refreshingly mean spirited and believable. Jackman and Bale both give great, passionate performances. Whether or not you like the movie, I think it would be hard not to see that these are two undervalued performers getting a chance to do some "big" acting. Caine is terrific, as always, and Scarlett Johansson is perfect as a woman caught between the feuding warriors.
As you might expect from a Nolan film, there are some surprises--some tricks to be revealed in the film's prestige.Read more ›

This film was spectacular-way above what we expected.
Very unpredictable plot twists, good character development and superb acting.
Would be willing to watch it again!
Not as good as The Illusionist, but very well done. The Tesla bit is kinda bogus.Published 6 days ago by El Chalao

|picture quality of the Prestige?||
Yes! Look for the Blu-Ray review on IGN.com and Hidefdigest.com, both saying it has one of the best transfers on Blu-Ray and from my own experience (I own it), it is fantastic. The only thing to be desired is more extras.

|Will there be a deluxe edition?||
Eventually we'll see a special edition but that's usually dictated by 1) the success of the movie 2) how well it sells on home video 3)when the film stops selling on home video companies elect to stimulate additional sales by introducing a special edition.
At least that's usually the case.
