Now You See Me Will Make Audiences Appear

Now you See MeSummit Entertainment has surpassed all expectations of storytelling, in the fantastic crime dramedy, Now You See Me. Advertised as a straight comedy, but far more than a “who done it?” and more of a, “Hey, how did they do it?” Now You See Me, is mind blowing. The writing team of Ed Solomon, Boaz Yakin and Edward Ricourt, play slight of hand on the audience as you are drawn into the story with the tag line, “The more you think you see, the easier it is to fool you.” Director, Louis Leterrier, keeps your mind wandering while making magic happen on screen.

The premise is simple enough, four street magicians are selected by a secret organization, to pull off three amazing heists that leave the FBI, Interpol and a debunker baffled as to how they are able to rob a bank in Paris, turn a rich man poor and vanish without leaving a single clue behind. They remain 5 steps ahead of everyone after them, and just when you think you have figured it out, PRESTO, you are right starting back at square one.

Jesse Eisenberg leads The Four Hoursemen as Daniel Atlas, known more for his slight of hand if not more so, his sharp tongue. Isla Fisher is the escape artist, Henley Reeves, Woody Harrilson portrays Merritt McKinney, the mentalist and Dave Franco is Jack Wilder, card shark. Michael Caine is Arthur Trussler, their benfactor, while Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent are out to debunk and put away the horsemen for committing these crimes.

Now You See Me is the surprise movie of the summer. If you weren’t a fan of Eisenberg before, you will definitely take notice now. Fisher is fantastic, although, you’ll catch her accent slipping in a few scenes. Harrelson always brings his A game, while Franco needed a bit more screen time. Ruffalo, Caine and Freeman were beyond superb and to be honest, I would watch them read the phone book. Laurent added final element to this film that gave it the extra je ne sais quoi.

Bank on a sequel, even though this film can stand alone without needing to tell a second story. Now You See Me, opens nationwide, Friday, May 31, 2013.
