Critic Consensus: Now You See Me's thinly sketched characters and scattered plot rely on sleight of hand from the director to distract audiences.

Critic Reviews for Now You See Me

All Critics (152) | Top Critics (31)

Force-fed magic is fun for a while, then it fizzles out along with our complicity to believe.

Bangkok Post

With the classic magician's tactic of misdirection, Now You See Me gets us to look at all the explosions, car crashes and pretty people while concealing that the magician's hat is empty and his cards are clearly marked.

Full Review… | April 18, 2016

Like a car that all at once blows its transmission, loses power steering, succumbs to a flat tire, and catches fire, "Now You See Me" is a wreck in every sense of the word.

Full Review… | April 15, 2016

Now You See Me is a slick crime caper that works because of its witty dialogue & large cast, but falls flat due to a finale that fails to leave any sort of magical impression

We Got This Covered

Clever, original, wildly improbable, wildly enjoyable and directed with all the necessary flash and dazzle, the film combines the pleasure of a well-engineered heist movie with a twisty-turny plot full of wit, double-takes and sleight-of-camera.

Full Review… | August 20, 2013

This surprisingly witty, deliciously well-played and sneakily subversive outing from director Louis Letterier freaks out a little into its final act but, nevertheless, ranks as one of the year's most entertaining pics.

Audience Reviews for Now You See Me

Great idea and potential, but pretends to be much smarter than it actually is. The magic effects feel so fake they have little "Whoa" effect on the audience. Entertaining but with plenty of wasted opportunities.

Jens S.

Super Reviewer


Bored the crap of me, quite honestly. I tried to watch it once previously, switched it off. Decided to have another go. Wish I hadn't bothered.
Film looks great and I liked Isla, though her role isn't that big, but it just didn't hold my attention.

Nicki Marie

Super Reviewer

A stupid caper movie that believes to be so much smarter than it really is when in fact it is a cheap Hollywood sleight of hand concealing a huge pile of implausibilities and the nonsensical nature of its twists/tricks - and the silly dialogue and idiotic ending only make it worse.
