Now You See MeSarah Marshall
With a handful of blockbusters under his belt already, director Louis Leterrier really stepped up his game with last year's magician-heist movie, Now You See Me.
His most recent previous credits included the poorly-received Clash of the Titans and the adaptation of The Incredible Hulk which really didn't do Bruce Banner or his alter-ego justice on the big screen. But with Now You See Me, Leterrier really shines in the director's chair.
With one of the best casts I can remember seeing all last year, the script keeps you guessing at every turn, not only wondering how these magicians are pulling off the heists, but also whether or not their magic is real, and exactly who is leading who in the game of cat-and-mouse between them and the FBI, hot on their tail.
Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco lead as The Four Horsemen, a group of illusionists who take their show to one of the biggest stages in the world: Las Vegas. Their show peaks with a brilliant trick, pulling off a bank heist in real-time. The trick? The bank is in Paris, and their unwitting participant begins the trick with them live in Vegas.
With FBI and Interpol called in to bring the magicians to justice, the movie only gets better, with Mark Ruffalo and Mélanie Laurent hunting the Horsemen as they continue to gain in popularity in the public's eye, and Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine making things even more interesting with each having a stake in the group's capture.
The beauty of magic is, of course, in not knowing how the trick is done. Yet even when the film invites you into the knowledge of how some of its tricks are pulled off, you're still left stunned and entertained by its genius.
Though some of the film's pacing at times feels a little off, with the odd conversation held for slightly too long or not enough, the movie as a whole is incredibly fun to watch, and holds up great to a second (or, in my case, fourth) viewing! And with Now You See Me 2 slated the horizon, the film has launched a somewhat unexpected franchise for the future, and I can't wait to see where Leterrier and co. take things next.
