The Prestige Reviews

Gabe Leibowitz
Film and Felt

Until an inexplicably awful revelation at the end, The Prestige is a taut, exciting portrait of obsession and the dark competitive spirit of professional magicians.

Although the slowish pacing early on over-indicates how both magicians' marquee misdirection (a disappearing act) will be achieved, The Prestige still manages a neat trick of its own.

Show me a director better suited for a movie about magic than Christopher Nolan and I'll show you... a magician?

The film is never less than engaging, though considering that the title The Prestige refers to the moment in a magic act that gives it its "wow" factor, it's kind of a shame that the ultimate "reveal" in the movie is a little too tricky for its own good.

"The Prestige" is a cinematic trick, nothing more, and the deadpan seriousness is part of the effect, and not an end in itself.

In a movie about people who make their livings on misdirection, The Prestige utterly forgets to employ its own.

It's quite a movie -- atmospheric, obsessive, almost satanic.

Nolan balances Hollywood and indie sensibilities pulling off a film that is smart, complicated and carries a big look.

As is his want, Mr. Nolan jumps between time periods and voice-overs with reckless abandon. The movie's real trick is that it all somehow manages to congeal.

An example of old-fashioned storytelling, the kind of magical movie that could have been made fifty years ago and, consequently, will still be watched fifty years from now.

An interesting if not entirely satisfactory theatrical interpretation of magical rivalries.

...one of those pictures where the journey is more important than the destination.

The who's-bilking-whom mind games make for compelling fun, but once the presto moment of The Prestige is revealed, you're left with nothing but shattered illusions.

The Prestige is a ridiculously, almost uncomfortably engaging film.

Mientras unos encontrarán enigma y adicción %u2014como si se tratase de una historia del genio Hitchcock%u2014 otros, aquellos que buscan el piso falso en el tablado del escenario, porque simplemente no creen en la verdadera magia, saldrán desilusionados

Odd, but brilliantly so. It's a small film that feels big, a period drama that looks modern, defying comparison to anything but Nolan himself.

Like a great magician, Nolan makes the pledge, takes the turn and delivers the prestige.
