Magic, money and elements of mystery
sleight of hand-pick, pocket-lock specialist called Jack Wilder (Dave Franco).
They all end up getting a mysterious card inviting them to attend a special event in Manhat- tan, which turns out to be a flat in a large apartment building.
The set up for the story is fastpaced, breathless and enjoyable to watch.
The next time we see them they have their own show, The Four Horsemen, in Vegas and they have become extremely popular.
From there they pull the trick of robbing a French bank in Paris from the stage of the show in Vegas which puts FBI on them in the shape of Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) and his sidekick from Interpol Alma Dray (Melanie Laurent).
Morgan Freeman stars as the know-it-all retired magician Thaddeus Bradley, who turns from making films about how the famous magicians do their tricks to helping the FBI catch them after he is offered a large some of cash.
Now You See Me could easily be the year’s best movie for pure unadulterated fun with an intriguing script and excellent performances by an all-star cast.
