Now You See Me (2013)

Louis Leterrier directs Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher and Mark Ruffalo in this magicians-do-heists caper.

This was a surprisingly good blast at the cinema but doesn’t really hold up on rewatch. Glossy, silly but way too beholden to the big twist reveal. There’s a point at the midway mark where it either gets bored of, or can’t figure out a way to allow us to stay with, the main set of criminal conjurors. Which is a mistake in my mind. Everyone is on form in a fantastic ensemble yet it is all just smoke and mirrors by the end credits.
