    Saw a screening of this film. It is very well done and keeps you entertained and guessing to the end. The magic was mesmerizing and you get caught up in the spectacle. There is some profanity and a very brief sexual scene in which you see a woman in lingerie momentarily. Overall I was entertained and would definitely see it again.

    I'm really glad I only rented this one. Didn't live up to the buzz and has a very weak ending in my opinion.

    Short scene of sexuality with a woman in her underwear. Some innuendo and suggestive talk. Good story that has a great twist. Saw this for Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman who are good but so is the rest of the cast.

    The whole cast is extremely wonderful. Jesse, Isla, Dave, and Woody worked as a great team. The chemistry is done very well with all the characters. Mark Ruffalo is really good in the movie. The movie has tons of twists and turns that will leave your head spinning. I didn't have anything that I disliked. This is a really fun movie that will keep you at the edge of your seat. The magic is crazy good and the movie is one of the best summer movies You don't want this movie to disappear. Catch another movie review here

    Very disappointing. You have a two minute story at the start (which is the entire story) and a two minute explanation of revenge at the end with random "magic tricks" in between. When you see the magic you don't know if you are suppose to accept the high level of cgi which make all of the magic tricks look ridiculous or search for little clues which also turns out to be a waste of time. By the end, you are expecting a big payback for all of the time you spent watching the tricks but instead you get a "is this it" explanation.

    I love a good heist movie, and I enjoy the occasional magician movie as well, but I left this movie (which tries to combine the two) very disappointed.

    The cast list is amazing. But although Woody Harrelson stole most of the scenes he was in, generally the cast couldn't overcome the basic plot of the movie. The writers were trying to be way too clever for their own good. All the characters were playing their cards close to the vest, masking their true intentions to such an extent, that I (as a viewer) had little sense of who to root for. Everybody seemed about equally likeable and equally bland, with the exception of a few one-dimensional baddies not even central to the plot. The romantic chemistry between two leads, supposedly a key plot point, was simply absent.

    Consequently when the prestige is ultimately revealed at the end of the film -- when the plot finally becomes clear -- I just didn't care by that point. I was bored. I've been trying to find a good reason to recommend this film, but I can't do it. Sorry.

    I'm not surprised. The movie critics don't like the movie, but I think it was great. This movie is CLEAN! There is one potential sex scene that doesn't get anywhere and one riscay cleavage flash. Other than that there is no real foul language. I rated it ages 10+.
    This is a great movie full of tricks and magic. The opening scene even worked on me. It had some great effects that keep you interested. It's one of those movies where you have to try and piece things together. You are constantly trying to figure out if certain people are good or bad. The movie has an amazing twist that I would have never thought would have happened. Good movie and I will probably add it to my collection.

    This is a super dumb movie about benevolently clever magicians being chased by ridiculously dopey FBI agents. Not worth your time unless you are snowed in for 3 weeks and this is the only DVD available.

    Now You See It is a thriller and well-worth the rental. Maybe there is a little plot over-simplifying as far as the Grandmaster - Magician who has all of the revelations to bring out from up his sleeves but it is still fun and enjoyable. Good acting and a pleasant set-up as far as the twenty- and thirtysomething lead actors and actress. It is of moderate running time and has a satisfactory ending that doesn't require a sequel or buying into a multiple run of books and/or movies to be made. Volunteer with your outside voice when this title calls for nearby volunteers from the viewing audience to come forward!

    Loved this movie throughout, until coming to the very last scene. It left me confused and not able to figure out what it meant. The twists and turns throughout were great, but will someone please explain the last scene to me!

    This movie was very well done. The plot was interesting and the identity of the puppetmaster was unexpected. The special effects were great and the acting was fun and believable. The story was well developed and left me wanting to see it again now knowing what to expect at the end. There was so much going on it needs a second viewing. I enjoyed it very much.

    Loved this movie! This is much like an Oceans 13 or Sneakers. The acting and story-writing are very well done and the twist at the end really throws you for a loop. This is a movie you will want to watch again after seeing it.

    I enjoyed the movie quite a bit. There were plenty of twists and turns and overall was a lot of fun to watch. Seemed pretty clean as far as I can remember (even the girl in the tank was in a one-piece swimming suit). Recommend.

    Now You See Me has a very intriguing premise with strong characters and the mysterious element of magic. The story will keep you on your toes as you wonder how the tricks are done and who is behind it all. My only complaint is that when the big twist does come at the end and the mastermind of the entire plot is revealed, it breaks one of the fundamental rules of mystery stories: there should be clues the audience can pick up on to guess who it is. As it stands, I felt cheated because there was no clue at all. Still, Now You See Me is an entertaining ride and deserves a spin... See Full Review

    Absolutely thrilling movie. It keeps you wondering what is going on and how they are doing what they are doing. If you like magic in real life you will like the movie. Entertaining, great acting, suspenseful and with all the twists and turns it keeps you guessing the whole way. 4.5/5 the only downside to the movie is its more interesting then thrilling. It doesnt leave you with the feeling of it being a masterpiece however, it is worthy of watching more then once.

    Now You See Me gives you a good magic show through out the whole movie. If you don't like magic tricks you probably wouldn't like this one. Most kids have an interest in magic and would most likely enjoy seeing this movie. They even explain how they pulled off there tricks at the end.

    Overall this movie Is good for all ages and I would recommend this movie to almost anyone.

    No Maturity Rating | Worth Your Time

    This film has great pacing. A great cast that includes legendary actors Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, up-and-comers Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and James Franco's little brother, Dave Franco, who has improved his acting considerably since "Scrubs: Med School" (TV).

    You'll find yourself trying to guess along with the detectives as they fumble to solve these crimes that occur during a group of magician's showstopping illusions. This is a fun movie for those that like to play the guessing game from their theater seats.

    Pacing is good as are all the actors portrayals of their characters in this film.
