Audience Reviews for Now You See Me 2

  • Feb 28, 2017
    A pointless, slapdash sequel, Now You See Me 2 is mildly entertaining but doesn't have much up its sleeve. The Horsemen come out of hiding to expose a software scheme but end up getting outed to the FBI and are forced to take a job to steal a computer card for a rich foreign businessman in exchange for his protection. Most of the original cast returns (with the notable exception of Isla Fisher), and are joined by Lizzy Caplan and Daniel Radcliffe. But the performances are rather weak, and the plot is idiotic. The writers go to extreme lengths to develop plot threads that connect back to the first film and expand the mythology of the Eye and Lionel Shrike, but none of it works. And the magic acts too are pretty lackluster. Still, Now You See Me 2 has enough showmanship and intrigue to create a little bit of fun and excitement.

    Has some cool scenes, but completely lacks any of the magic of the original, pun intended. Worth seeing if you liked the first film just to see more of the characters you liked, but don't expect anything particularly good.

    As sequels go this isn't bad but the novelty has grown thin here. The overall arc of the story isn't worth the running time and you just seem to be recycling villains for the same ending. The concept of the first movie was good but it failed to deliver that final blow. A great cast with chemistry to burn can't save this from being mediocre.

    This dismal attempt to garner some praise and cash is simply horrible. It's tone is disastrous as it try's to have a aesthetic with the sudden "oh we're in Asia now". This movie's cast and script arnt thought through as there are many foreseeable errors. I wouldn't be against making a "Now You See Me" TV show as I think it could benefit from a trick or two a episode. I think the Rotten Tomatoes score should've been lower at 21%-26%. Overall it's a rushed mess of a film.
