I love movies about magic and illusions. From Harry Potter to Now You See It (Yes the Disney Channel Original Movie) to The Illusionist, I love ’em all. This movie, featuring one of my favorite men in the whole universe, Jesse Eisenberg, is not short of magical moments.
The plot follows a group of Vegas magicians known as the Four Horsemen who rob banks during their act. Starring Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Michael Caine, and Woody Harrelson, the movie’s star studded cast doesn’t fail to impress. The movie has you running alongside the FBI to figure out what’s going on, and though the chase is incredible, the ending falls a bit short. It feels like they had a great idea but didn’t know how to finish it. Having said that, the movie is fun and exhilarating all the same, just don’t go in expecting a Fight Club level ending. Regardless of the cheesy stuff, the movie is awesome and it definitely sucked me in. I would recommend this one for sure!
