Now You See Me 2 Reviews

August 29, 2019
I forgave the first film for its faults because one way or another it entertained me. This one did not.

The story hardly matters; as the lazy title suggests, we're just here to have a good time, and director Jon M. Chu knows how to make two hours of your life disappear.

Fun without form and stylish without substance, NYSM2 is more of the same without taking any steps forward or backwards.

It all feels more like a rehash of that first film. You can almost see a checklist of all the stuff that worked in the first film trying to be duplicated, but it just doesn't have the same freshness the second time.

Director John M. Chu's film is a blur of CGI trickery that bears zero weight because it's impossible for ticket holders to suspend their disbelief without sacrificing their intelligence for two hours.

A sequel to an awful movie, NYSM 2 is so bad that not even doubling the amount of Woody Harrelsons can fix it.

Action scenes were great and I loved the chemistry this cast brings to the screen.

This sequel is just as basic as pulling a rabbit out of a hat.

The film definitely banks on its mystery, illusions and humor as well as on the strength of its actors. The combination of these elements...bring audiences to experience this film as a fun-for-all, cinematic rendezvous.

This is not going to be the hit of the summer, but the spectacle, energetic score and totally invested cast make it a worthwhile watch.

Basically a duplication of the 2013 original, with absolutely no thought and energy put into creating anything unique or genuine.

The card heist scene in the second act was some of the most fun I've had in the theatre...I recommend it enough for a matinee.

This entire smoke-and-mirrors roller coaster is utterly preposterous, yet undeniably fun.

A solid sequel that's as glitzy and stylish as the first--even though it may be a little harder to figure out.

Even the title of this movie is a failure for not going with the obvious 'Now You Don't'

If you are a fan of fast-paced heist thrillers, this one's watchable if not as entertaining as the prequel.

Now You See Me 2 is a desperate attempt to pull a franchise out of thin air. But this glitzy Hollywood hoodwink is nothing more than a slavish pull of wool over the audiences eyes.

The hope behind the NYSM franchise seems to be that if they keep it quick, slick and well-acted, we won't notice what tosh it is. But we do, time and again.

For the six of you who like Now You See Me, #2 offers more of the same so you ought to like the sequel. For everyone else, it's barely passable but it will do in a pinch, if you really need to check out for a couple hours.

You already know the magician is going to pull the rabbit out of the hat.
