Even newbies can follow along with this slick magic show. . All the main cast returned with the new ones. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Is this film as clever as it thinks it is? I used to think that the characters in the first movie were good and well tough out — they were good as a team and fun to be watched. The story follows after some time where the first one ended. That sets up the overly convoluted endgame, where a number of competing interests collide as the Horsemen attempt to purloin the top secret chip which will allow whoever controls it to access data anywhere on any platform.
Now, they are just annoying and try soooo hard to look cool with their crappy dialogue and outrageous tricks.

They might succeed from it, particularly from earning Yuan, but I'm the not happy, the world is not happy about that. Rhodes' attempt to reveal Case's shenanigans backfires dramatically, leaving Rhodes a fugitive and in one of the film's silliest but also kind of funny conceits the Horsemen stranded in Macau. The big finale may be predictable but that makes it no less fun. Here he still aids the Horsemen and seeks to find some closure with Thaddeus Morgan Freeman , a man Rhodes blames for the death of his father.
It's a neatly apt metaphor for perception, something that of course magicians rely on in order to flaunt their wares, but unfortunately the main plot of Now You See Me 2 favors the literal over the imaginative quite a bit of the time. The film was two hours long, but not bad to hook for that long when pace and the story looked better. Though, the writing and direction were decent with some nice Chinese locations. My colleague Brian Orndorf wasn't especially enamored of the first Now You See Me, and was evidently only minimally more favorably inclined toward the sequel, as evidenced by his of it. The apps are synchronized with your account at Blu-ray. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Now it seems this will going to be an unstoppable franchise, we could expect more, the next one was official, especially after considering how this film fared at the box office.
This time they are tricked by some unknown people and land in a foreign territory. For more about Now You See Me 2 and the Now You See Me 2 Blu-ray release, see published by Jeffrey Kauffman on August 27, 2016 where this Blu-ray release scored 3. This sequel picks up in the aftermath of the original film's series of sometimes perplexing if also predictable denouements. No matter how you feel about the film, you have to agree that these characters are a hoot to spend a few hours with. So sorry Hollywood, better luck next time. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. The Horsemen, now wanted fugitives, have gone into hiding, though J.
A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. I'm not fully satisfied, particularly about the China. Dialogue is cleanly presented and the thumping score also spreads through the surrounds invitingly. Crush intrudes at least minimally in some of the scenes in the Macau magic shop, as well as some very dark moments later in the film, especially once Michael Caine makes his reappearance. I know Hollywood found its second home, but that does not mean they have to add China flavour all the time to just make money in China.
Its a movie about magicians right? Can a card slide through your body that easily? One of the most enjoyable aspects of the movie is the elevated performances. Mabry Daniel Radcliffe plays a tech nerd who forces the Horsemen to steal a chip so he can control all of the computers in the entire world — but who is really pulling the curtain? A new member was included, a female to balance with the existing ones. When their boss comes to their rescue, the things around them begin to change. Agent Rhodes Mark Ruffalo is back on the job, ostensibly on the hunt for the missing Four Horsemen or at least the remaining Horsemen. Meanwhile, Thaddeus Bradley Morgan Freeman is unhappily ensconced in a Federal penitentiary, calming plotting his revenge against the Horsemen whom he blames for his current predicament. The palette is oddly anemic at various points, with flesh tones looking a bit drab, and as is so typical these days, swaths of the film have been variously graded, often toward the blue end of things.
All the tricks were kinda impossible, but at least its all make sense after they showed us how they did it and added with an interesting plot twist at the end. While performing a show, they had to abort it in the middle when the cops raid them. Their repartee is lively and their visible enthusiasm for their roles and the film is contagious and as a result, I was smiling throughout the whole movie. So how it all ends was another twist. Overall, this is a good follow-up, but not best I was looking for. Fine detail is often superb look at the ribbing on Radcliffe's white suit in his first scene , and some of the establishing shots, like one of the first views of Manhattan, offer stunning clarity and excellent depth of field. These are talented actors who visibly enjoyed working together; they play off each other with an effortless believability.
After the biggest heist, now they are back with the new public shows. Daniel Atlas Jesse Eisenberg isn't content to simply wait around in hopes that some kind of instructions on what to do next arrive, and so he ferrets out the supposed headquarters of The Eye, the super-secret magical organization into which the Horsemen have been initiated. So good to see the two legends, Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine. Over and over again the track exploits all of the surround channels, including the overhead ones, in a number of standout sequences that offer lots of crowd noise, including the rollout at Octa early in the film and a much later sequence in a Macau nightclub.
