Now You See Me

Now You See Me

Now You Wish You Hadn't is maybe a more apt title. A mess of a movie with nothing behind it (or should I say up its sleeves?). Where The Prestige was a movie about the power of magic as a form of storytelling, Now You See Me is a movie about how cool magic can be when it is done almost entirely by computers. The CGI in this film is obvious and therefore ruins any shred of credibility the silly story could have left unshredded. At the end there is, of course, a big reveal and while I won't spoil it for you here, just know that it's really dumb, and that each of the three big magic tricks that come before it are just as dumb. Almost entirely irredeemable, but at least it reminds people that Mélanie Laurent still exists.
