I don't know what these people are talking about! This movie is GREAT! I didn't even want it to end. Chris Nolan gets better and better. You'll have to wear you're thinking cap if you want to watch this one though. So if you're into mindless entertainment - you probably won't like it.

This was such a long movie, and like Dark Knight, it just kept going on and on, and then the ending was so stupid and even then they threw one more twist at youy. Greatest Movie, HA that's a laugh, Try Biggest Joke, just like Dark Knight was.

Stuffed with hard-working actors, sleek effects and stagy period details, The Prestige, directed by Christopher Nolan from a script he wrote with his brother Jonathan, is an intricate and elaborate machine designed for the simple purpose of diversion. Full Review

Bale and Jackman inject their reliable charisma into two otherwise very cold fish. Okay, I'll say it: If you see only one magic-at-the-turn-of-the-century movie this year, make it this one. Full Review

A visually stunning, startlingly clever sleight of hand that will have audiences pondering well after the lights go up. Full Review

The Prestige is utterly without pretense. It doesn't want to explore epistemological questions about the nature of perception and memory; it just wants to mess with our heads. And as a wily, slightly sadistic chess game of a movie, it succeeds quite nicely. Full Review

Variety
Clearly, director Nolan is aiming for something else. But the delight in sheer gamesmanship that marked his breakout "Memento" doesn't survive this project's gimmickry and aspirations toward "Les Miserables"-style epic passion. Full Review
