Storyline Heading

DETAILED STORYLINE
.
Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Thriller - This is an ensemble caper thriller that pretty well balances its screen time across its all-star cast though Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Melanie Laurent, and Morgan Freeman get the most focal attention. Magic tricks play a strong part but no actual fantasy magic. Language, adult subject matter, and some violence make the film too intense for young children.

Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Good As imperfect as Now You See Me might be, it's a lot of fun and features some effective performances from well-known and well-respected actors.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good It's slick, deliberately silly, and sprinkled with visual confetti — Steadicam spins, lens flares, CGI trick shots.

USA Today Full Review
Average Boasting a terrific cast and a flimsy plot whose logic disappears faster than a rabbit in a hat, Now struggles to pull off its cinematic sleights of hand.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average The outrageous setup more than suffices, and the film gets a lift from offbeat characters, especially Daniel and Merritt, and humorous dialogue.

D ETAILED S TORYLINE
The Four Horsemen, a magic super-group led by the charismatic Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), perform a pair of high-tech, high- profile magic shows, first amazing audiences by remotely robbing a Paris bank while in Las Vegas, and then exposing a white-collar criminal and funneling his millions into the audience members' bank accounts, baffling the authorities with their intricately planned capers.

FBI Special Agent Dylan Hobbs (Mark Ruffalo) is determined to make the magicians pay for their crimes -- and to stop them before they pull off what promises to be an even more audacious heist. But he's forced to partner with Alma (Melanie Laurent), an Interpol detective about whom he is instantly suspicious. Out of desperation, he turns to Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman), a famed magic debunker, who claims the Paris bank trick was actually a meticulously planned illusion. Dylan and Alma begin to wonder if the Horsemen have an outside point person. If so, finding him (or her) would be the key to ending the magicians' crime spree. But who could it be? Or could it really be... magic?

As pressure mounts and the world awaits the Horsemen's spectacular final trick, Dylan and Alma race to stay one step ahead of the magicians. But it soon becomes clear that outmaneuvering these masters of illusion is beyond the skills of any one man -- or woman.
