    Starts out with a big bang, exciting premise, keeps the sense of wonder going, and then deflates like a balloon. By the time Morgan Freeman's character starts explaining everything from the prison cell, I didn't get a rat's patoot anymore. But worth seeing the first part. Watch it and then take a nap.

    Excellent movie! It was a clean movie with non-stop action. Loved the twists that occurred several times during the show. Will definitely rent it when it comes out on DVD.

    Absolute waste of time and money....Jessie Eisenberg is the best part of this film...sadly, he has about 10 minutes screen time....ISla Fisher is too cute for words, but also, not enough screen time....the rest of the cast, I won't bother to comment. Screenwriting was awful....can't even recommend this film on DVD....boring, boring, boring.

    I saw this movie with my friend the Friday night it went into theaters, and we were the youngest ones in the theater. Although I didn't mind or really notice until the end because I was so focused on this amazing movie. I loved seeing Jessie Eisenberg and Woody Harrleson in another movie together. Near the end of the movie I said "Twice" kind of giddy like. If you've ever seen Zombie Land and then this movie (or vise versa) you'll understand what I meant. Overall this movie earned 5 stars and was totally deserving of this rating.

    Wonderful illusions. Modern day robin hood movie. Things are not what they appear to be. Job well done with the cast and crew. Loved it.

    Director Louis Leterrier assembles a varied and talented cast – Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Mark Ruffalo, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Woody Harrleson – in Now You See Me. The result, alas, is a classic case of the parts being greater than the sum. Each cast member gets to shine in their own individual storylines, but few are well-connected in the overall narrative, resulting in a giant mish-mash of unrelated motives and unresolved plot points.

    The basic plot is kind of like Robin Hood: Men in Tights if the men in tights were all famed illusionists. Here we have a quartet of the world’s most powerful illusionists played by Eisnberg, Fisher, Harrelson, and Franco – who use their gifts of magic to steal from corrupt corporations and then give to the audiences that patronize their shows. It’s an interesting spin on taking on the rich, especially in a week that explores a similar theme from an environmental angel in The East.

    The premise never really gets fully explored, however, leaving the audience instead to be subject to a series of magic tricks that take away from the movie’s overall theme. It’s a passable way to spend an afternoon and nothing more.

    You know it’s never a good sign when you’re sitting at a movie screening and every time you look up to gauge the audience reaction they’re either yawning, checking their watches, or gazing at their smartphones. Such was my experience for nearly the entire duration of the new Will Smith-M. Knight Shyamalan movie After Earth.

    I’ll spare the long and odious backstory about a boy named Kitai (Jaden Smith) who years desperately to prove himself to his father Cypher (Will Smith): the story is set in the future when humanity no longer lives on planet Earth (this seems to be a recurring theme in movies lately - Wall-E much?). The ‘rangers’ that travel the universe (in search of what we never know exactly) crash land on Earth where Cypher is critically injured. Kitai finally gets his chance to show his pop that he gots the stuff of a legend. Okay then.

    The movie isn’t bad per se, it’s just needlessly tedious when it should be loud and boisterous. For all his charm, there is nothing particularly complex about Will Smith and the same can be said about his son Jaden. Try as Shyamalan might to instill these two with a futuristic and neo-intellectual depth, it just doesn’t work, and it comes off as hokey rather than sincere. Imagine casting Eminem in Al Pacino’s role in The Go dfather. That basically what this experience boils down to.

    I love magic, love love love it and I was really excited to see this film. I am happy to say that it was not bad and even though I was a bit disappointed with the magic tricks because they were clearly done with CGI and camera trickery so the audience knew that it was all fake. However, I still had a lot of fun watching this film because it was very entertaining. The film was fast-paced, fun and I enjoyed the characters. I did think that the film was a bit too smug for its own good and the moments when the filmmakers thought that they were astonishing the audience with the magic tricks fell a bit flat. Overall, i had fun watching this movie and I recommend seeing it in the theaters because the cast is great and the story is quite interestin

    I had fun watching this film and I know that the critics probably will not like it but I think it will please a wide audience. It is a fun film, especially the first half of it and even though the second half is not as fun I still think it is worth seeing on the big screen. I enjoyed the magic tricks and I liked that the film was fast-paced and there was not a minute of boredom. I think that the performances were great and the leads had a great chemistry between them. Overall, the film was very entertaining and I recommend seeing it in the theaters.

    I liked this film and I think it is worth seeing on the big screen. I love magic and I was really excited to see this film and I am happy to say that I was not disappointed. I enjoyed the tricks in the film, even though I wish that the makers of the film relied less on CGI and the camera trickery. I liked that the film was fast-paced and II thought that the cast was great, they made the film fun and interesting. It is a fun summer film with a great cast and fun storyline and I think it will appeal to a wide audienc
