"Now You See Me," directed by Louis Leterrier

Movie, 2013

Clever and tricksy blockbuster about four magicians – the Four Horsemen – who plot and counter-plot against legal and corporate agencies, keeping one step ahead with some outrageous, elaborate pranks and tricks. A film which puts a little too much emphasis on action and atmosphere, meaning that none of its characters are both lovable or believable. Entertaining yes, although everything’s driven home with crashes, bangs, wallops and irritating uses of incidental music. A shame, as there’s a suggestion, here and there, that there might be something more interesting going on.
