simply put, find out who wrote the script and avoid the guy forever
I start to suspect that scripts for these films are not even written by real people anymore. They must be using a piece of software that randomly arranges the same 200 lines and spits out a 'new' script. It is rated 7+ on IMDb only because we are brainwashed, conditioned to seek plastic films in which everyone's an actor but no one is a character.

Did I watch this with unreasonable expectations? Maybe I did. But no matter what you expect from something that has Morgan Freeman in it, it is not Transformers. While this movie is exactly that. It is Transformers meets NYPD Blue. It wants to advocate some moral belief while it fills your eye wholes with blue Vegas light. You have seen this movie before. Sadly.

Great Trailer but Deceptive Movie with Awful Plot Point
The smalltime magicians Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) are invited to attend a meeting in a weird apartment.

One year later, they reappear as The Four Horseman in a show in Las Vegas sponsored by the millionaire Arthur Tressler (Michael Caine) and they heist a bank in Paris from the stage and distribute the money to the audience. The FBI agent Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is assigned to the case and the Interpol sends the agent Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent) to be his partner. Dylan and Alma are completely lost in the investigation and the exposer of illusionists Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) gives hints about illusion. When the Four Horseman steal the bank account of Arthur Tressler during a show in New Orleans, Dylan and Alma believe that these heists are only distraction for a huge scheme but they are never sure about of what is true or illusion.

"Now You See Me" has a great trailer but is a very deceptive movie with an awful plot point. The fast pace is a distraction to hide the plot holes from the viewers, since the story is absurd. For example, how could the Four Horsemen build a safe without a trace? Or make the fake money? The FBI would easily track the vendors and consequently find who bought them. The twist is absurd and many scenes do not make sense, such as Dylan chasing Jack through the garbage duct or on the bridge, just as an example. How could the FBI not investigate the parents of the fifth horseman? The story happens in the present days, but the technology seems to be ahead of time. This movie may work on DVD or Blu- Ray, but it is a waste of time and money going to the movie theater to see it. My vote is five.

Title (Brazil): "Truque de Mestre" ("Master Trick")

One Of The Best Caper films of all time!
What If The Prestige and Oceans 11 Had a Baby it would Now You See Me Featuring Jesse Eiseberg(Zombieland) as J.Daniel Atlas , Woody Harrelson(Seven Psychopaths) as Merritt McKinley , Dave Franco(21 Jump Street) as Jack Wilder, Isla Fisher(Hot Rod) as Henley Reeves , Mark Ruffalo(Shutter Island) as Dylan Rhodes , Melanie Laurent(Inglorious Basterds) as Alma Dray, Michael Caine(Inception) as Arthur Tressler and Morgan Freeman(Evan Almighty) as Thaddeus Bradley. The film was brilliant at asking the question what if Magic film met a Heist it was brilliant the twist and the turns also it was funny, Dramatic and Thrilling it was a very memorable from the First Trick to the Last Trick also it was intriguing to see how Thaddeus and The FBI are trying to bring down/ catch the The Four-horsemen the film was a brilliant and intriguing to say the least also one of the best caper films of all time 8/10

Absurd plot. Waist of time and propaganda.
1. Painful attempt to create mystery 2. Painful attempt to instigate "doubt" with the cheap historical miss use to create nonsense. So there is a "puppet master" out there?, give a break.

3. Horrible suggestions. So according to the script, the audience should not ask because is better to stay ignorant. Is this how propaganda is delivered in 2012? I may ask. Suggesting the audience to be submissive and turn around and go home? Different context, I know. So beside being a waist of time. What is the purpose of the movie? If this is interesting for a movie producer, .. than anything and everything is worth being a movie with such expenses.

Now You See Me Critique.
Now You See Me Now You See Me is an action and suspense movie. Is a movie about four magicians that came together to do magic tricks and be famous. The stars of the movie are Jessie Einsenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman and Melanie Laurent. The movie take place in 3 principal places that are Las Vegas, San Francisco and New York.

Now You See Me is a mysterious movie that starts with four street magician's name, Daniel Atlas, Merritt McKinney, Henley Reeves and Jack Wilder. A mysterious stranger slips to them a card with an address and that's when they met. A year later after they receive the card, the magicians did one of the biggest magic shows in Las Vegas and became known as "The Four Horseman." The magic show they did brought them to serious problems that made the FBI, and an Interpol from France to look after them. Not only the FBI was after them but a former magician named Thaddeus Bradey who makes money by reveling the secrets of magician's tricks. The Four Horseman did another trick and didn't care who were trying to put them on jail and who they will betrayed. This next trick included stealing, escaping, revenge, hypnotizing and lies. After that The Horseman made their final trick, the biggest trick.

As I wrote before Now You See Me is a movie that take place in different places for example Las Vegas. Their first show was in Las Vegas. In their first show they made it seem so really when they travel to the bank of France. They manage to disappear all the money from the bank of France and appear in France. Later on, when the police were chasing them because they stole bank,they travel to San Francisco for their second show. For their second show the illusionist give away all the money from their producer to the audience that have been victims from their producers company. After giving away all the money, again the police, their producer and Thaddeus Bradey were after them.

Now You See Me had an amazing cast. One of the stars of the movie Jessie Eisenberg known from his roles in Zombieland and Social Network now plays an action role as an illusionist. Also the actor Woody Harrelson known from his role as Haymitch in The Hunger Games made a great job playing a hypnotist and a mentalist. Woody is the one who gives a comedy touch to the movie. Dave Franco actuation was really good, he can really play a kick ass character and an illusionist. Isla Fisher, the only girl in The Four Horseman, did a great job giving life to the sexy magician Henley. I think the first trick Isla performed to the audience was really awesome and we can see how perfect she was for this role. In The Movie Now You See Me I would have like to know with more details about who The Four Horseman were before becoming famous magicians. Also I would have like to see the evolution of two of the actors love story. Also what I really missed about almost the end of the movie was the participation of the character Jack Wilder in their last big magic show. He would have be amazing performing one last time with the other magicians.

Now You See Me was the best second selling movie in the time it was released. Meaning many people liked the movie. In the movie all of the actors made an amazing job. Something that I really liked about the movie that every time they played incredible tricks, they used distraction. Distraction was the main element of the movie. The Four Horseman always did something to distract the audience while the real magic was happening in other place. One of the lines that I really like about the movie and that was basically what the movie was about, was the line said by Daniel Atlas at the beginning of the movie. The line says: Daniel Atlas: "Come in close. Closer. Because the more you think you see the easier it'll be to fool you." In my opinion I rate this movie with 10/10. I really recommend this movie not only to the action audience but to everyone because it is full of suspense and excitement. I know you will enjoy it.

Lots of entertaining glitz but mostly empty
... that is perfect for a summer popcorn movie where you just want to sit and enjoy the on screen action and the theatre AC. Now You See Me is really well done, it's swiftly directed and there are no odd parts, and I knew what kind of movie I was going to watch so I am not disappointed.

On the other hand the movie did not surprise me, and the plot is mostly a gimmick you don't care about by the time the trick is revealed. The casting was great: gathering Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harelson... is a key factor of success here. These three are the most powerful and impressive performers of the lot, and Melanie Laurent comes just behind with a different kind of character that does help keep the story on track in between extravaganza scenes. Mark Ruffalo does the job but is not entirely convincing, yet I reckon the part was written in such a way that he must alternatively appear a funny fool and an a-hole, to end up looking a nice handsome dedicated copper... By far, not the easiest job on the lot.

I was surprised Jesse Eisenberg received top billing. He must really be hot property after the Social Network, but frankly Woody Harelson is by far the best of the 4 horsemen. Eisenberg looks as if he is not able to play something else than the Mark Zuckerberg type. Isla Fisher has little to play with and is thus underused, as always alas. And there's also a fourth horseman who picks locks but is quite pellucid.

All in all the movie runs very smoothly for its 115min runtime but it is mostly "in your face" entertainment and will leave no mark as a clever or intriguing movie.

It will go down in history as the best movie of 2013.
A lot of people also think there is no real magic in this movie. Since the condescending black guy, Thaddeus, debunks just about every magic trick in the movie.

Well, there is a lot of magic in this movie. One of them is the building leap where the 3 Horsemen turn into money. How does one explain that?

How did the 30-year-old New York Post paper featuring a two page article on Lionel Shrike get inside Alma Dray's Liberation newspaper in Paris? How did Dylan Rhodes escape the locked prison cell when he visited Thaddeus from behind him and then appear in front of him where the door is at?

In the interrogation room Merritt informs Alma about Dylan having daddy issues and that it's her first time off the desk. So he is a real mentalist. He can also feel energy through closed doors and glass when he acknowledges Fuller and Dylan looking at him in the room. Jack disappears from inside the curtain when Dylan grabs him at the joint. And appears on the other side. It's unexplainable, so it's magic.

And also, how did Atlas get the SUCK IT card inside Thaddeus' velveteen pocket before their second show?

We may never know whether the story of the cheating husband at the beginning is true or not. But we do know about Dylan having daddy issues and Alma being her first time off the desk. No one told Merritt. Well, least not about Alma. This is magic.

Thaddeus knew an unusual amount of information about the Horsemen plans and The Eye. So The Eye is real, or was real. He knew about the book Alma was reading called The Guardians of Horus. He even tells Arthur that whatever the grand trick is was designed long ago. How does he know this?

Another clue is the first meeting with Thaddeus when he tells them that they are being played because it's a game. Only Dylan can understand him.

Some people claim that there is no growth in the characters and that they are shallow. Again, not true. They had a start as individual acts, Merritt was successful at one stage, even had a TV show. He was trying to do a comeback with a book he wrote about hypnosis.

Before they leave the joint, Henley wonders who they are working for and Jack doesn't want to go to jail. Or get killed. Merritt is expecting a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Henley reminds them that they must stick to the plan and Merritt will get to do whatever he wants after.

Jack, since he is the youngest, is often treated unfairly. Even in the engineered Jet scene when he wants to speak about his part on the show. He is dismissed. Atlas and Henley used to work together back in the day and went their separate ways as Atlas was a control freak.

When they post a video on Youtube about Jack's death, Merritt also says they have started something bigger than all of them. And they have to finish it. In the lift at 5 Points Henley comments that she had a year of fun even if she goes to jail. This is character development.

At Central Park Merritt celebrates Jack for being 'a big boy now'.

The story is NOT about the Horsemen. It is about Dylan Rhodes. He is the one that grows throughout the movie. He is the one who is satisfied at the end. He is the one who had a goal. He is the one who knows what was happening and what to do.

After the inciting incident, Dylan gets a call from Fuller. He accepts the opportunity and goes to his office to start with the case. When he gets there, to cover his tracks, he acts like he doesn't want anything to do with the case. His plan did not or would not involve anyone outside the bureau, much less an agent from Interpol. He didn't see this one coming.

He later changes his mind when they let them go, confusing the agents. Again, to cover his tracks. When Fuller tells him about Thaddeus being in the show filming the Horsemen, he, to us, did a terrible job when he denies ever having any knowledge about the magic debunker. And only we can see this. Even when they meet Thaddeus at his offices, he had to convince everyone that he doesn't know anything about magic or his own father, Lionel Shrike. He acts like a dummy. We are the only ones who can see this.

At the empty Las Vegas theater, he did an excellent job when he 'pretended' that he didn't know how they stole the money from Paris. For Alma. He had to keep up with her for most of the movie because she was onto something. She's a researcher. A desk agent like Merritt said.

Of course Thaddeus won't last in jail. And yes Arthur's money is gone. Merritt can hypnotize people over the phone to get them to do whatever he wants. Even if Credit Republican of Paris gets its money back since the bank money is probably insured and the Elkhorn money inside the safe at the warehouse, the whole point was for Dylan was to humiliate his victims. Arthur Tressler's insurance career is over. After they exposed his company it will be done away with.

Thaddeus Bradley's ego is busted. He'll find it very difficult to return into the business after what Dylan did to him.

A week later and I couldn't remember the title....
Four street performers are recruited by some mysterious character and bank-rolled by Michael Caine. They decide to embark on what appears to be a socialist-inspired reallocation of wealth via "magic." It's Robin Hood in CGI but lacking in charm.

Did you ever go to a Harry Potter movie and see rows upon rows of disenfranchised middle schoolers longing to go from invisible to invincible? They had read the book and fantasized about instant fame, power and popularity.

Now take the most devoted Potterite and put this film in front of them and they will be bored and overcome with some of the juvenile "stupid" that flows through this movie. Even as fantasy, it isn't plausible.

Woody Harrellson is fun to watch. The money must have been good for Morgan Freeman to smugly mug his way through....only to be outsmarted in the end by a surprise ending that makes you want to stand up and yell "Really?" If you like movie dumbness which paints business as evil and average Joes as victims, you might enjoy this. But if you want to see real movie magic, rent The Prestige. It's much better and it will actually require you to warm up some brain cells....unlike Now You Bore Me.

Now You See Me (2013)
Now u see me is Brilliant movie to watch , The dialogue, Characters they are Excellent. Eisenberg plays the uptight J. Daniel Atlas pretty well, Mark Ruffalo was also brilliant in this film as well play his role perfectly. Dave Franco played a good part as well in this film and the rest of the Cast played Well.

Overall, this is an amazing movie, with awesome action, great actors and characters, a nice soundtrack and a brilliant script. Woody Harrelson had everyone in the room laughing.

There is nothing I love more than a great heist movie.love this dialogue, the closer you look, the less you'll actually see. A must watch movie :)

Would have been a lot better if the story was told from a different perspective.
First of all. I didn't give this movie a 1/10 rating because I thought it was completely awful, my personal rating would be around 4 to 5/10. The point is that the 7,5/10 it now has is far too good for this movie.

In the first half hour, the movie looked like it was going to get very good. But from the moment the FBI agent Dylan Rhodes is introduced, the entire movie goes downhill. I think this movie would've been way more enjoyable to watch if the story was told from the perspective of the illusionists..

At a certain point in the movie, the outcomes of the attempts by the police to catch the illusionists are extremely predictable. They're always several steps behind and they keep failing. It's quite dull to watch a 15-minute scene about an attempt of which you know it's going to fail. And some of the scenes were downright unacceptable, like the overly long chasing scene that made me feel like I was watching Fast&Furious.. Unlike most of my friends I didn't expect the ending. I guess that was because I was dozing away, something that has never happened to me before while watching a movie.

In short: a good first 30 minutes, and a not quite so good last 90 minutes. A waste of both your money and your time..
