Now You See Me-4.5 out of 5 stars

This is the film everyone will be talking about this summer! The film Now You See Me is a high-level thinking suspension and action film. The movie is based on four magicians, three living in New York City and one in New Orleans. They have been brought together by a mysterious person to put on the world’s largest and best magic shows. However, the magic shows are simply a cover up for something deeper and a part of a mission to redefine the negative in modern culture. The film is the best I’ve seen in 2013 so far, the acting, scenery, and intellectual thinking behind this film is remarkable. The film moves swiftly between New York City, Las Vegas, and New Orleans creating a constant change of scenery throughout the film. The actors: Jesse Eisenberg, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Michael Cane, and French actress Melanie Laurent did a tremendous job. They fully bring you into the world of magic and getting you to decipher between reality and perception. {{more}} This film will take you into the unreal and real world of magic, as four people work to right the wrongs of society via magic. I rank this film 4.5 stars out of 5, I cannot wait for this film to come out on Redbox and Netflix, I will definitely be watching this film again. I always enjoy a high-level thinking film that continuously has you thinking of what is to come next.
