    I left this movie feeling I’d been had. And not in a good way. show more

    It's mostly smoke and mirrors. After Freeman's snooze became a YouTube fixture, the actor jokingly dismissed the nap, saying he was using "Google eyelids" to check his Facebook account. You may find yourself attempting the same feat, because Now has little up its sleeve. show more

    There's a great movie out now about magicians, sleight-of-hand maestros, illusionists, card and coin tricksters. Now You See Me is not that movie. show more

    For a while, Leterrier does manage to conjure up a little bit of magic between all these charming actors. And then, presto: Just like that, it’s gone. show more

    A superficially diverting but substance-free concoction, a would-be thriller as evanescent as a magic trick and one that develops no suspense or rooting interest because the characters possess all the substance of invisible ink. show more

    It's all a little dumb, but the movie boasts several non-CG tricks and a few genuinely mesmerizing set pieces including a hand-to-hand-to-magic combat scene between Ruffalo and the spry Franco. show more

    The film itself is sly and smug in kind, fleetingly enjoyable for all of its old-school showmanship and high-tech hokiness. show more

    It's a little along the same lines as "Ocean's 11" in what it achieves and, like that film, there's plenty of Oscar power among the actors - a combined 15 nominations, to be precise. show more

    Much of what makes Now You See Me so entertaining — in a gaudy, disposable, Vegas act sort of way — is its ever-escalating ridiculousness. show more

    The editing of the action sequences is an insult to the idea of narrative clarity. show more

    Contrived twist at the end. Disappointing. Otherwise, fairly good entertainment.

    If you\'re going to make a movie about a group of magicians... please make it plausible. The CG in this movie was cheating. The least they could have done was make it look like it could have happened. Unbelievable piece of schlock.

    Wow! What a ride! Usually I can guess ahead in a movie but every guess was SO wrong. How about that ending? Run to get this movie on DVD.

    I enjoyed this movie... it was captivating from the get-go and the actors were all proficient. I loved the concept of giving to the poor.. almost like a real-life modern-day Robin Hood!
