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.

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.

Ocean's Eleven for Gen-Y; it's a 'pop heist movie' that's more concerned with looking cool than being it.

It's a cheat even before taking a last-minute excursion into a more fantastical genre.

When the smoke finally clears you won't hear a single gasp. The groans could be deafening though.

There's nothing behind all this sturm und drang but a lineup of insubstantial ciphers, all false fronts and empty words in a pretend world not quite conducive to emotional investment.

A film which proves the theory that if magicians were also bankrobbers, they'd still be pretty stupid.

When functioning like a magic trick, this breathlessly entertaining picture delights in its showmanship, but the more entertaining the trickery, the tougher the explanation, and when the truth is revealed the answer can't help but fail to satisfy.

Hollywood bombast masquerading as something trickier.

Exudes self-importance and can't help but make promises it can't deliver on.

Leterrier's sixth feature film relies so heavily on the flashiness of a great show that the characters become props whose motives and storylines disappear amidst all the smoke and mirrors of the movie.

It has all the depth of a Vegas magic act, though take heart, it's one fifth of the price.
July 1, 2013
This flashy, flat, dispiritingly personality-free drama is more likely to make audiences disappear.

The opening credits roll, the stage is set and then SHAZAM... all sense of logic magically disappears.

If you're OK with the film playing you for a sap, you'll laugh and clap and wonder how that bird got into that hat. But if you think there's a difference between being tricked and being cheated, you may feel swindled.

Leterrier handles his camera like a Swingball set. Sleight-of-hand has seldom felt slighter than this.

July 10, 2013
The story moves jauntily toward its destination; the destination, unfortunately, is a disappointing wreck.
June 4, 2013
A messy magic act dominated by Eisenberg who once again shows off his amazing skill at memorizing long monologues
July 7, 2013
A fairly unmagical couple of hours at the cinema.
