Now You See Me movie review

Now You See Me is a 2013 thriller directed by Louis Leterrier. It stars a ensemble cast featuring Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine.

Four magicians, called the four horsemen, commit a bank robbery and the movie follows an FBI agent (played by Mark Ruffallo) trying to find out how they did it and to catch them. Aiding the FBI agent is a French Interpol agent (played by Melanie Laurent).

The heist scenes are excellently shot and the action sequences are very well done. The ensemble cast put on brilliant performances. Jesse Eisenberg is well cast as the charismatic leader of the four horsemen. The cat and mouse game between the four horsemen and the agents trying to catch them is very entertaining

It features a brilliant opening scene, showing Jesse Eisenberg performing a magic trick. This is a fantastic movie, which can be viewed multiple times. I highly recommend it
