This movie has it all. David Bowie, Cockney accents, Rebecca Hall , Michael Caine giving everybody the business, clones. Everything
this is like objectively good but it could've been an hour shorter...
"Are you watching closely?"
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
Wow. That's the one word my mind can bother to think of after every viewing of such a film.
On the surface, Christopher Nolan's The Prestige may seem like a simple mystery thriller about two men trying to outdo themselves with each action, but once you "watch closely" as the film's antagonist (or are they all antagonists?) suggests so often, The Prestige is a film that defines human emotions. Nolan managed to create such a wondrously layered and complex epic…
I am sad to say that besides David Bowies brilliant portrayal of Nikola Tesla i hardly remember the rest of the movie.
imagine if Prince had played Tesla
"Go home. Forget this thing. I can recognize an obsession, no good will come of it."
How do I attack reviewing this?
Let's try this way:
- It was awesome.
- Christian Bale was awesome.
- Scarlett Johansson was awesome.
- Hugh Jackman was a bit less awesome but still awesome.
- It was confusing.
- It was intricate.
- It was a Christopher Nolan film all throughout.
- It was entertaining as hell.
- It was magical.
Imagine if you were in the audience every time these two went at it. Now that would be a worthy spin-off
Non esiste possibilità che se amate i fumetti non vi piaccia questo film il cui storyboard potrebbe essere tranquillamente spacciato per un graphic novel di Alan Moore.
One of Batman's...uh... Christian's best acting performance. Alfred Borden's sacrifices are certainly greater that that of Bruce Wayne.
