This review is from: Now You See Me [Blu-ray + DVD + Digital] (Blu-ray)
Showmen have no soul. This is a typical show-boating movie that has only one purpose: to look cool. The easiest way to do that is to turn the characters into some infallible "winners" who are always in control of everything. To me, all that control is seriously boring rather than cool. I like to see movies where the characters face challenges, have doubts, are faced with tough situations and sometimes fail. That feels real. This one felt like some perfume commercial where they're trying to sell you a cool image, rather than a product. It never had any soul.
I'm not even that concerned about plotholes and poor dialogue.
I think it may appeal to some teenagers or people who are into "reality" TV and celebrity culture.
