Now You See Me is one movie I sense that Hollywood is probably gonna wreck, reason being when I saw the ending I knew from there that a sequel is being worked on.
Now You See Me is going to remain in the minds of many as one movie all should see if Hollywood would just leave it as a standalone movie.

What makes this movie good is the idea that I’m being fooled twice in a movie, I’m following a group of magicians who are brought together mysteriously by a mythical group called the eye, as I’m being fooled by their robin hood tricks, another spin is waiting for me at ending.

The movie is a masterpiece. Its focus was directed towards the idea of making sure that the rich pays for oppressing the poor, and it did not digress at any point from that focus, from the get go the movie introduces the players both good and bad (based on your perspective) and we are immediately thrown into a rat race between the FBI and the four horsemen.

The movie plot is about four different magicians (Jesse Eisenberg as J. Daniel Atlas an illusionist and the ringleader of the Four Horsemen, Woody Harrelson as Merritt McKinley a mentalist, Isla Fisher as Henley Reeves an escapist and Dave Franco as Jack Wilder a sleight of hand illusionist) who got mysterious call cards inviting them to a meeting. They all show up to meet themselves as a group for the first time and they get to see a mysterious plan that will eventually begin the groups transcend of taking money off the rich and giving it to the poor.

In the mix is an FBI agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) with him is a lady from Interpol and together they chase this crew all over the place trying all they can to catch them unawares. Then there is the know it all Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman), a former magician who has devoted his life to exposing the tricks behind all the great magic trick that we all see and are amazed.

Now You See Me boast of an ensemble cast that will make you sit glued from the beginning to the end, the rich insurance company owner Arthur Tressler is played masterfully well by Michael Caine. Morgan Freeman made sure also that his presence was felt as he plays the annoying unfulfilled magician.

But the man that stole the show for me was Mark Ruffalo. I have to be honest I have seen Mark in many films and this is the very first time I get to truly appreciate him as an actor. His portrayal of the Hulk in The Avengers is mostly shadowed by the fact that the CG Hulk was more fun to watch than Bruce Banner.

Go see Now You See Me and no need to delay.


  1. What?!! This excuse of a movie didn't know what it wanted to be. It jumped all over the place. It had no soul and no strong characters. The plot, something that supposedly was the crux of the movie, led to nothing and gave us the most unsatisfying "deus ex machina" ending I have ever seen. I cant believe you liked this.
    I am not impressed

  2. And what the hell is up with the 5 million questions i have to answer before commenting? You should be making it easier for us to comment, not harder/longer.
