‘The Prestige’ created remarkably captivating and gripping performances by Bale, Jackman and Caine fulfilling the roles and succeeding the story-line perfectly of the rivalry between two magicians being exacerbated when one of them performs the ultimate illusion. I felt this was an undeniably astounding plot that accommodated the spectator with immense fascination and enthrallment. A little sceptical of the court case as an overall perspective; although they explained the entire story in full detail, they should have depicted the judgement or verdict that was enforced upon Alfred Borden and why the decision was made. But for me, each and every element and component of the film fashioned a sense of realism and sincerity from each actor, creating a mere beautiful film, yet still being very spiteful and malicious. Quintessential Nolan, providing an aberrant yet terrific production.
