As preposterous and stylized as it may be, Now You See Me is still an entertaining magic flick.
As I noted in my review for The Incredible Burt Wonderstone a couple of months ago, films about magicians seem to be an interesting topic for Hollywood these days. Especially in a film industry defined by visual dazzle and technical wizardry, the motif is more relevant in entertainment than ever. In Now You See Me, we have a story involving heists that are organized and executed through the usage of illusions. From the director of The Incredible Hulk and involving a star-studded cast, is this a caper flick that will turn the crime genre on its head?
