    Clever, but predictable plot. Even though, I enjoyed watching it. Amazing acting and directing.

    "Are you watching closely?"

    Christopher Nolan is a talented filmmaker, so I was looking forward to “The Prestige”. I was expecting a film that was showy, but it surprised me with subtlety. It was like a good magic trick that is confident and subtle and classy. With solid performances from Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman and the always watchable Michael Caine, it’s a study of magic and illusion and obsession. While it seemed slow to me at the start (maybe…

    Re-watching more of Christopher Nolan's earlier works, and I think I made a good decision by doing so. The Prestige is just incredible the second time that is often overshadowed by it's more popular works like The Dark Knight and Inception. Hugh Jackman and Christain Bale put on a wonderful performance. The storyline was just so intriguing, and David Bowie as Tesla? What? That's just insane. Nolan really knows how to sell a story, and The Prestige is no different.

    The Directors Series-Part III: The Christopher Nolan Retrospective
    "Are you watching closely?"

    Christopher Nolan's 2006 magician film, The Prestige opens up with something that is slightly akin to his 2000 film, Memento, in which we are to assume that we are already getting opening moment spoilers seeing Robert Angier's (Hugh Jackman) death, similar to Leonard Shelby killing Teddy in the beginning of their film, leaving us with the asumptions that Teddy was "John G". That is not the case here.…

    On a visual level, The Prestige is possibly Christopher Nolan's more breathtaking achievement and considering he's such a visually gifted director, that's quite impressive. The plot was engaging and the acting was strong. Both Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman were at their finest. The only thing I disliked about it was the ending. The plot twist was tricky, unconvincing, and in the end underwhelming. Nevertheless, the film as a whole was remarkable and the way it ended could not ruin that.
