Movie Review - Now You See Me
Now You See Me. I mean, it's a movie about magicians who somehow transport a man halfway across the globe to rob a bank in France. The premise continues with the magicians working to outsmart the FBI, Interpol and a naysayer Morgan Freeman who has made it his life's work to expose how elaborate "magic tricks" are really done and show that magicians are just con artists. As you would hope in a show like this, the trailer works hard to NOT give away too much while still showing you plenty of scenes from throughout the movie. I suppose a very discerning and prying fan could work to piece together scenes from the trailer to find some spoilers, but I preferred to be surprised.
PG-13 rating due to swearing, a sexually suggestive scene, an explosive car chase and a number of street-brawling style fighting scenes. They're not pushing for an R rating, but it's definitely a bit over my younguns…I'll give 'em a few years.
Go see Now You See Me and put some magic back into your life. For me, it's the best movie of 2013 so far. :)
4.5 out of 5 stars
