very good. confusing but makes somewhat more sense in the end. asks a good question: does real magic exist? I dunno it might.

Owen McKenna, Rio Rancho NM. Good entertaining film. The illusions performed in this movie were impressive, some good old magical tricks were used. The 4 Horsemen as they were called, each played their perspective roles well.

This movie was for me one big magic trick.
Like many, I thought the beginning of this film was great. The presentation of the "Four Horsemen" was well done. Especially Woody was brilliant as the mentalist. His humor is natural and doesn't feel like forced or exaggerated. I find him irresistible in this role as a shrewd and highly intellectual lettered psychic illusionist.
Eisenberg has that natural arrogance of which I sometimes doubt whether this is played or it's his personality in real life. Fisher and Franco ensure the beauty portion of the film.

Morgan Freeman routinely steals the show as a cynical professional debunker and Ruffalo, who already has experience in the heist field starring as he did in the similar Brothers Bloom, acquits himself well as the befuddled agent in pursuit. It's obviously very contrived and the twist is a little obvious, and …

J. Daniel “Danny” Atlas, Henley Reeves, Jack, and Merritt McKinney were invited by Arthur “Art” Tressler to perform as the Four Horsemen. FBI agent Dylan Rhodes and Alma Dray from Interpol are tasked to investigate the mysterious heist of robbing a bank by the Four Horsemen. The pair approaches an ex magician names Thaddeus Bradley. Screenplay was top notch with lines: “I hate people who exploit other people.” My life is happier when I believe that.” “Faith can move mountains.” Soundtrack was lively and performances notably of Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo and Woody Harrelson were splendid. Cinematography, editing and plot were fantastic. Only minor blemishes observed by this reviewer were the lack of outcome for the rich Arthur Tressler, effects heavy related magic tricks ad the …
