Amazing film

I agree with the other review on here, this is easily one of the most beautiful and best written film this decade. The story is mesmerizing, it really draws you in, and the twist at the end, wow. I mean, wow. Even Sixth Sense's ending wasn't as shocking as this one. Eisenheim had me believing in ghosts and magic by the end.

I haven't seen 'The Departed' yet, the number one conten... read more

Everyone knows the story of boy meets girl, boy loses girl. However, there is more to this story here. Set in turn-of-the-century Vienna, Norton is Herr Eisenheim, famous magician (rather, illusionist), whose stage performance has captivated the attention of the Crown Prince, who is to wed Duchess von Deschem (J. Biel), childhood friend of Eisenheim. A crime takes place, but who has done it? Chief... read more

Wow. Bravo.

Just finished watching it, loved it.

This movie is simply amazing. It goes right in hand with "The Prestige" (though I do like the Prestige more) with it's sudden plot twists and "wha?" moments. The beginning is a little hard to understand, until you begin to see what happens.

The whole fact that magic actually exists kinda makes me go "meh" to this movie, but otherwi... read more

"A stage magician (Edward Norton)from a poor background tries to use his tricks to steal away a Prince's fiance (Jessica Biel) who was his childhood sweetheart This is very similar to The Prestige but I think its tighter and works much better - better acting and more subtle. At least with this film we dont have to put up with cor blimey guv daft accents. The ending isnt that great but does not blow it completely Great film - a must see"

"25/06/2013 Taikatemput elokuvissa ovat vähän perseestä. Niin usein turvaudutaan kameratrikkeihin ja temput ovat näin totaalisen perseestä. The Illusionist turvautuu harmiksi näihin kameratrikkeihin. Pitäisiköhän tässä olla myöntyväispoliittinen elokuvaa kohtaan, sillä näin 2000-luvun nuori saa kokea melkein yhtä kovan hämmästyksen kuin vuosisadan vaihteessa elänyt suutari? Kuinka todellisia perhoset ovat tänään ja kuinka silloin. Mutta en jaksa vain. Myöntyväispoliittine"
