Christopher Nolan presenta la rivalidad entre dos magos como si se tratara de un vistozo y complejo truco de magia cuyo secreto nos es develado.

Tout comme le magistral Batman Begins, The Prestige se veut une %u0153uvre de marque dont le raffinement et l'intelligence n'ont d'égal que sa grande accessibilité.

[The Nolans] could not have conjured a more chimerical story than this transcontinental thriller about two men selling their souls to destroy each other.
November 25, 2006
It's a very cool piece of filmmaking -- as it has to be, given the intellectual sleight-of-hand that lies at its heart. Yet it succeeds as both great entertainment and an absorbing rumination on the dangers of playing God.

A sleight-of-hand thriller set in Britain's Victorian era where magic was mysterious and performing it precarious, the film is a dark and aggressive emotional roller coaster that challenges the imagination.
November 20, 2006
If movies are among our greatest, most enduring vehicles for illusion, then a movie about dueling illusionists should, in theory, offer that same sleight of hand--only amplified. In this case, it does.

Perhaps it is because the film focuses so much on the mechanical and the material that the sudden intrusion of the genuinely magical feels forced and even somewhat silly.

Há filmes que se tornam ainda mais fascinantes quando revisitados, já que o fato de sabermos seus segredos oferece leituras novas e surpreendentes; em outras palavras: o que era mera surpresa transforma-se em rica ironia dramática. é o caso deste longa.

Gripping, suspenseful, mysterious, moving and often darkly funny.
November 11, 2006
The Prestige looks great and there's too much class involved for it to be anything but entertaining. Even so, a suspicion that Nolan overstretched and overdeveloped his story is inescapable.

It isn't my favorite Nolan film, but it's better than most of the films I see.

We invest in the furious battle because there is more at stake than a magic trick: each man has to sacrifice things near and dear to him
November 9, 2006
Not only does it tell you how it's all done, it takes so long about it that you've got time to look up its sleeves and work it out for yourself.
November 7, 2006
It lodges itself as not much more than a (perhaps shockingly) bitter little pill.

Part homage to the art of performance, part admiration of science and technology, part unexpected turn to science fiction, and total mind-melting madness.

... this odd tale about obsessive Victorian-era magicians and their blood feud isn't nearly as enchanting as it should be.
