An average movie

To be honest, even ‘Now You See Me’ was not bad, I didn’t think it really required a sequel but since it had been fairly successful at the box-office, I guess it was inevitable. First of all, it was rather disappointing that Isla Fisher’s character completely disappeared but, apparently, Fisher got pregnant and I have to admit that Lizzy Caplan was actually a decent replacement. Anyway, coming back to the movie itself, well, at least, it wasn’t worse than its predecessor but it wasn’t really an improvement either. Basically, the major mistake they made with this franchise was that even though it was based on illusions, in contrary to ‘The Prestige’ which remains the best in the movie in this genre, the illusions displayed in this movie were just really over the top and, above all, they looked so fake. Another thing was that, even though it was just so cool that they hired Daniel Radcliffe, his character unfortunately turned out to be rather disappointing. I mean, sure, I got the joke when Walter Mabry said that he played around with magic while he was at school but lost interest but, seriously, what’s the point to have Radcliffe being involved in a movie about magicians without him playing an evil magician as well? At least, the cast was really good and they seemed to have some fun but, to be honest, I really struggled to care about the damned thing. Still, I guess it might be worth a look if you really enjoyed the previous instalment.
