Now You See Me Review.

This movie will keep you on the edge of your seat til the very end, it is true movie magic.

There is no good way to talk about this fantastic story without giving spoilers, so let's talk about magic shall we? I hear people talk about a movie when it lists magic, some of them think any movie with magic is just a children's film. They are wrong, this film is an action movie, it is a detailed story. This is a movie that everyone will want to see. I will say this about the story, the writing is truly magical.

Let's talk about the magic makers aka the cast and crew.

Mark Zuckerberg is in this film, oh no wait that is 'The Social Network' star Jesse Eisenberg. The reason I make the Zuckerberg joke is because Jesse brings a lot of that role into his 'Now You See Me' role of J. Daniel Atlas. There is something about his attitude in this film that really works.

'Warm Bodies' star Dave Franco, plays Jack Wilder along with 'Rise of the Guardians' Isla Fisher, who plays Henley Reeves. I think with these two it is also their attitudes as well as the fact that they don't just take a back seat to Eisenberg, they all play equal to each other that makes them such a great part of this film. Now does everyone know his name? playing Merritt McKinney is Woody Harrelson. The best part of his role has to be his comedy.

Keep an eye out for the Marvel and DC Entertainment movie mash-up that happens in this movie. By this I mean the great line up of three actors. First from the world of Marvel's 'The Avengers' we have Mark Ruffalo (aka Bruce Banner) who plays Dylan Rhodes in this story. He brings a lot of his clam yet partly on edge role of Dr. Banner from the Avengers into this role.
Now from DC Entertainment 'The Dark Knight Rises' we have Morgan Freeman and Sir Michael Caine (Fox and Alfred). They play Thaddeus Bradley and Arthur Tressler (in that order), they are both funny and serious actors which makes them that much more entertaining.

Shout out to one of the filming location cities in this film, New Orleans, Louisiana. Towards the start of this film, you will find yourself wanting some Beignets (For those of you who don't know what those are: I always love seeing when movies are filmed in the Big Easy. I believe that those from Louisiana will love many parts of this film.

"Look closely, because the closer you think you are, the less you will actually see". This film is worth seeing again and again because you never know what you might have missed the first time.
