NOW YOU SEE ME (US, 2013)

Post by Wallace on Fri May 23, 2014 5:05 pm

Very fast-moving, over-convoluted (to the point that you dont even want to bother trying to work it all out)  thriller - like everything they make now.
There must be thousands of short 3/4 second shots in this dizzing action film. Jittery-nerved, short-attention-span youth no doubt get off with these fast flashes, but old men like ourselves, well  its a burden on our slow brains to take it all in.
 
The Four Horsemen are a team of the world's greatest illusionists. Whilst staging a Las Vegas magicshow, the four in a matter of a few minutes - the audience are led to believe - Star Trek-like transport a high-up French bank personality from Las Vegas magicshow stage to Paris bank vault. The money is transported back and 3.2 million showers down on the audience. Later another seemingly magically-propelled  heist against corrupt business leaders is pulled off, ill-gotten profits  showered on the audience - only this time the money is fake.
 
 
Interesting is the revelation of how the trick or ,more properly put - the deception, was made.
