Great! Recommend by a former colleague from work, I watched it without too high hopes for it an was certainly awed by the entertainment it proved! Definitively going to watch the sequel.
What was a little annoying IMHO were the special effects, e.g. when the horsemen meet for the first time in the abandoned apartment in New York and see the plans projected into thin air or when the Building Block where the final showdown takes place is illuminated with the rotating tiles and such, because they are absolutely unnecessary!

This movie is so ridiculous. It's just so absurd. Rewatched this in anticipation of going to the sequel in a few hours. Man oh man. If it has less than 10 twists I'll be disappointed. (Update: Not disappointed!)

Four talented and diverse magicians are hired by a mysterious organisation to perform heists live on stage, giving the money out to the audience. Sort of like Robin Hood but with magicians.

If the premise of Now You See Me doesn’t really make sense to you, then the bad news is that actually watching the film will not make things much clearer. Magic tricks are not the best way to pull off a heist, and heaven only knows why you’d want to do it while showing your face to the world.

For those of us able to move past the naff concept, then this is a film that actually serves as relatively good entertainment. It’s slick, has certain clever moments and is bolstered by an all-star cast.

If you’re after some mindless popcorn munching fun then you could do far worse. Just don’t ask questions and try not to think too far ahead.
