Now You See Me Movie Review

A group of misfit magicians get brought together by the mystical 'Eye' and are convinced to pull off gradually bigger and bigger bank robberies for the sake of the magical art. A rich sponsor (Caine) is one of the targets and Freeman portrays an ex-magician, who's trying to figure out how they do it and gets roped into helping the FBI. The tricks are all intriguing and well explained as to how they pull them off. Its not until the final heist that things get slightly unbelievable, going into the realm of silly. Its a shame as you buy into the rest of the magic and this brings you out of the illusion you are watching something believable. It basically boils down to a magical version of who-done-it? On the whole though a very entertaining movie and is something different from the usual summer film fodder.
