Now You See Me - Movie Review


Almost as bad as having access to books, is having access to DVD's.  Frankly, I had not heard of "Now You See Me" before.  But then when I was checking it in and saw the line-up of Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson I decided it might be worth watching while knitting or crocheting or something.  I was a little leery because I'm not really a Harrelson fan, but decided to give it a try.  Texter actually watched it one day before I did and told me "Watch this movie!"

The premise of the movie is four street magicians are 'invited' to join forces by an unknown person.  Within a short time they are the hottest act going. Then they pull off a fantastic, unbelievable trick which is the first of three big tricks.  And they are messing with millions of dollars in the bargain.

Morgan Freeman plays a magician who is now known for his documentaries debunking tricks and illusions.  Mark Ruffalo is the harassed FBI agent in charge of catching the magicians. And the chase is on.

The effects/illusions/tricks in the movie are well done.  No sex, not much cussing, and the violence is pretty low keyed.  What is happening is a really good movie which makes you think while you are enjoying yourself.  Well worth putting the crocheting down to watch the magic tricks.  Definitely a movie worth spending an evening with.
