Movie Review: Now You See Me

now-you-see-me-wallpaper-7filmsWe had been to the Reel Cinemas at the Dubai Mall today to see ‘Now You See Me’. The choice was between this one and After Earth but somehow After Earth with the Smiths didn’t make it for us.

I really liked this movie. “Now You See Me” is like nothing I’ve ever seen before. “Now You See Me” tells the story of a group of magicians called The Four Horsemen who use their skills to pull off some of the greatest international robberies of their generation. Featuring Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Merritt McKenny (Woody Harrelson), Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco), the Four Horsemen make a dream team of street magicians. Since they have made their stunts public, allowing the world to “witness” the robberies, authorities are in hot pursuit of the four, now wanted criminals. Detective Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) is accompanied in his search for the illusive magicians by Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) and French detective Alma Dray (Melanie Laurent). Will the Four Horsemen be able to pull of their final act without being caught, or will it be curtains for the criminal performers?

Even I was skeptical with Woody Harrelson in the role of Merrit i must say he was brilliant. The action of the movie and the pace is really good and ever gets boring. It takes the one or another unexpected turn and the end is not what you would expect after the first 10 minutes. But it is great to watch.

A must see movie this summer with a brilliant Morgan Freeman. Watch it while it runs.

Favorite Quote: First rule of magic: always be the smartest person in the room.
