NOW YOU SEE ME (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.6|5.0 Starsìììì

Now You See Me—one of the best acted and scripted films of 2013—turns into an unexpected ‘Wow!’ from its beginning to its end. A real visual and intellectual treat, the film easily earns its four-star rating. It’s a best work effort for Jesse Eisenberg (character J. Daniel Atlas), Woody Harrelson (character Merritt McKinney), Isla Fisher (character Henley Reeves), and Dave Franco (character Jack Wilder). The actors have been well paired with veteran, seasoned actors Michael Caine (character Arthur Tressler) and Morgan Freeman (character Thaddeus Bradley).

Storyline

Four very good magicians are coordinated to perform three world class tricks that rectify great wrongs involving millions of dollars. Interpol and the FBI coordinate to solve the tricks only to have the final story end with a real mind twist.

Additional Thanks

Best Work For Director Louis Leterrier. Thank you to Executive Producers Michael Schaefer, Stan Wladkowski, and Boaz Yakin for making the film possible. Additional characters/cast include:  Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent), Agent Fuller (Michael Kelly), Mark Ruffalo (character Dylan Rhodes), Evans (Common), and Cowan (David Warshofsky).


Buy a ticket? Yes? No? Maybe?

Yes. Classic and perfectly told, worth every dollar.
