It's just a completely forgettable film in every way that will leave your mind as soon as the credits start. Huh, come to think of it, maybe this film did do something right after all: it disappears completely, just like a real magician would. Tressler places Rhodes in a reproduction of a similar safe that his dad kicked the bucket in and abandons him to suffocate, yet Rhodes escapes and is saved by the Horsemen. Bradley uncovers that he was really Lionel Shrike's accomplice, and he had been taking on the appearance of his opponent as a major aspect of their arranged demonstration: he had uncovered Lionel's first demonstration wanting to be stunned by his second demonstration, just to desert the Eye after Lionel's passing. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. Hollywood seems to think that pushing the limits beyond is a good thing, forgetting that most of us with a brain get bumped right out of movie land magic once a movie shows reminds us of how false of a premise it is. Lizzy Caplan performs the fifth and hottest horseman, and she does a fairly nice job at her function too.
The illusions and suggestions are extremely cool, to say the very least, but the entire presentation is something that I doubt I will need to revisit. The entire cast returns,excluding Isla Fisher,who is replaced by Lizzy Caplan. If you ignore my advice and still watch this, then prepare to have your disbelief suspended, battered into screaming submission and then vomited onto the floor. The first one was a little better, but still had the terrible acting, despite the magic of Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson, they were unable to rescue anything. Rhodes and the Horsemen are then taken to meet the pioneers of the Eye in a mystery library in Greenwich observatory. Re-watch the first film instead.
This movie has a lot of thrills and some questions are yet again left unanswered,but this time it is forgivable. If it's the right one, means the government can track you, so we recommend you to install virtual private network to avoid it! But the truth is everything is stupid and lacks credibility. Giving people two hours of enjoyable cinematic fun has disappeared from the equation. The fight sequences in this movie are bad, they're poorly shot, and I could barely tell what was happening. Mainly, the problem is the scenario.
This time,Walter Mabry,a tech magnate,recruits the Horsemen into pulling of their most impossible heist yet. If you like superhero movies - watch one of those. I can not really describe it, but underneath the trickery and flamboyance, there is not really much to keep in mind about this movie. To summarise, the movie is bad in everything story line, acting, dialogue Don't even bother to watch it. But in this one, they tell you.
Now, they are just annoying and try soooo hard to look cool with their crappy dialogue and outrageous tricks. So one day, I actually sat down and watched Now You See Me after hearing a lot of mixed reviews about it. Be warned, you will lose over 2hrs of your life watching this crap. Rhodes mediates and claims to recover the gadget yet is caught by Mabry's powers and taken to a close-by yacht where he learns Mabry is following up for the benefit of his dad, Arthur Tressler, whom Rhodes utilized the Horsemen to uncover in the primary film. The characters were painful to watch act as the lines and script was so awkward, they could not even make it look good. How can we top the preposterous nature of the first film with something even more improbable and ridiculous? This movie was so poorly written, I felt the need to make as many people aware to avoid paying for it. I'm not wasting any more time writing about it.
Actually though, was kind of movie that actually needed a sequel? Mabry conscripts the Horsemen into stealing the data-mining device developed by Case from a secret facility underneath a local casino, to prevent Case from using it. No jaw-dropping revealing or mind hack or anything like that. They go into the room and discover a staircase; the camera zooms out to the stairs, framing an Eye. A sequel to the 2013 film Now You See Me, it stars Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Daniel Radcliffe, Lizzy Caplan, Jay Chou, Sanaa Lathan, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. Before Bradley leaves, he requests that Rhodes be his successor in the Eye's administration and demand that the Horsemen enter a window ornament. Overall a decent thriller with a nice cast.
So this film has a problem that is evident early. The plot was bland and dull and dragging. I cant overstate how much I hated this. Because there is really nothing very believable in it. Not to mention the story twists it spices in which are preposterous to even think about and sprinkled with silly clichés and dialogue that not even Ruffalo or Freeman, two of the greatest actors, manage to make even passable.
All the tricks were kinda impossible, but at least its all make sense after they showed us how they did it and added with an interesting plot twist at the end. It saddens me to see Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson and Michael Caine agreeing to play in these dog gone godawful movies, I can a only assume they need a paycheck. I think it's for Morgan Freeman you have to love him even in dumb movies , the musics and the laugh I had mocking it. They lift in their base of common thievery to a grand strategy of manipulation out once more to expose evil company heads along with their nefarious schemes. It just highlights how stupid is the script.
They find that the individuals from the Eye incorporate Li, Bu, Allen, and Bradley. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Recently added or updated movie. At the Shard, Mabry, Tressler and Chase find that Rhodes is as yet alive and catch the five, taking them on his private plane. The joke is on us for spending money on this turkey! Rather than the dull stereotypical You See Me two, they should have tagged it You Do Not.
There is no grit of grounding of actions, stuff just keeps happening on top of other stuff and without any kind of character or story implications the film becomes more of a showcase of dull visual tricks. Its sequel starts out with the same unpretentious and fun vibe of the first only to slowly escalate up to what becomes one of the most lifeless and visually painful experiences of the year. I can not help but feel as though they missed an extraordinary chance for a very fantastic name for their own sequel. I used to think that the characters in the first movie were good and well tough out - they were good as a team and fun to be watched. And the trailer for this movie looked like it would be more of the same, which I was completely fine with.
