‘The Prestige’ created a remarkably captivating and gripping film through the performances by Bale, Jackman and Caine. Each fulfilling the story-line perfectly, encapsulating with great vigour, the rivalry between two magicians being exacerbated when one of them performs the ultimate illusion. This suspenseful plot was never disappointing, accommodating the audience with immense fascination and enthrallment. Plot flaws were scarce; however the court case wasn't explored in as much detail as would have been appreciated. Nevertheless, the elements comprised fashioned a sense of realism or rather naturalism. Nolan’s stylistically beautiful film was supported with gripping content, maintaining a dark, malicious experience.
