Now You See Me Movie Review
Ratings:3/5 Review By: Renuka Vyavahare Site:Times of India
The film has a novel and promising premise. The gang’s cat and mouse game with the FBI, their display of magic tricks, fluid stunt scenes and Mark Ruffalo’s banter with co-cop Melanie Laurent keep you engaged. The film works as a crime-thriller. However, it’s unconvincing when it comes to dissecting the magic. As the film progresses, the antics of the law-defying ‘famous four’ start defying logic as well. The scattered plot runs out of steam eventually. The film goes into a different tangent altogether in order to be unpredictable, leaving you more perplexed than pleased. The filmmaker sends out a similar message to the audience – don’t dig into every aspect of the ‘tricks’ and you will be entertained.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Raja Sen Site:Rediff
Things begin with an admittedly impressive ‘first act’ with a genuinely preposterous explanation behind it, but there’s enough pace to be taken in by it all, to luxuriate in the buildup. But then there’s a car chase. A big and elaborate generic action-movie chase which disrupts the narrative entirely, and it never quite gets back on track. This is when you realise that despite the actors making things look clever and cheeky, they’re all just making the most of one-note characters being hustled through a rather juvenile plot. Believe me, I get the idea of forgettable-popcorn-fun, but this film’s gradual and abrupt descent into predictable cliche is most saddening. It could have been so good. It could have been something that justified that cast. It could have been, well, magic.

Ratings:2/5 Review By: Neha Pinto Site:Bookmyshow
The first half of the film is mysterious and mysterious in a bad way; because you can’t seem to understand the purpose of action. The second half does get interesting, but that is only because the audience is too intrigued to know what exactly is happening in the film. At certain points the film does grip you, because who doesn’t love a good magic trick? At certain levels the film seems too good to be true. The end of the film makes it even worse. There’s always something that you take back after watching a film, after watching Now You See Me all the audience can take back is disappointment. The film takes cue from the famous saying, “If you can’t convince them, confuse them.” Verdict: As Morgan Freeman promises in the trailer, it’s true, “The more you think you see, the easier it’ll be to fool you.”
