One of those films that tries to be too clever for its own good.

This top notch cast manages to infuse the film with a sense of fun, style and a little suspense.

I wish I knew how to do magic. I think it would be a cool gift to have. My first trick would be to be to erase this film out of my head.

Now You See Me is pure summer popcorn. While it's not a super movie, it is a rather entertaining diversion for a couple hours.

It is risky, genius casting.

An engaging little summer caper. With a talented cast and a twisty bit of storytelling, this is an adequate bit of entertainment that is enjoyable in the moment -- even if it is rather implausible if you think about it.

The magic tricks are quite spectacular, especially one which features Ms Fisher floating above the audience in a giant bubble. But Now You See Me needed more sharpness for it be a really good film.

Some will enjoy the show all the way to the final twist, but by the time the credits roll, you'll feel like Leterrier and his screenwriters ran out of top hats and rabbits and decided to saw their audiences brains in half.

At a time when most mentally agile films are very talky and most action films have sing-along plots, Now You See Me is a surprisingly lively set of twists, turns, revelations and explosions.
January 26, 2019
Now You See Me is an entertaining trick for the eyes.
November 21, 2018
Now You See Me is a rarity: a summer movie that manages to entertain without killing off a single of its viewers' brain cells.
November 6, 2018
A film that relies on one of the worst, if not the worst twist in cinema history, and literally erases everything that it builds up to.

Now You See Me is fun but flawed summer fluff. There are certainly moments of greatness here, but the execution falters too many times.

However, the film sacrifices true depth of characterization of its leads in its quest to be purely entertaining, and the film suffers as a result. We are left rooting for-and against-a series of charming façades.

It gives you a little taste of both kinds of tricks. If you are looking for fun that involves more of the mind and a little less of the explosive kind, [Now You See Me] is the film for you.

"Why?! Why?!" screams Morgan Freeman and you, the viewer.
September 5, 2017
It's a fun set-up with a terrific cast - [Jesse] Eisenberg plays against type as a smooth-talking card trickster while [Woody] Harrelson radiates easy charm as a mentalist and serial flirt.

Force-fed magic is fun for a while, then it fizzles out along with our complicity to believe.
April 18, 2016
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.

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.
