Did you watch Christopher Nolan's twisty magician flick The Prestige, love it, but wish there'd been more action? If so, Now You See Me should fulfill those requirements. Directed by Louis Leterrier (The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans), it's about the Four Horsemen, a quartet of tricksters (Jesse Eisenberg, Isla Fisher, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco) who pull off an insane financial stunt: They "magically" transfer a sleazy millionaire's funds into audience members' bank accounts.
Being that it's all about the sleight of hand, Now You See Me has the potential to be the year's most brain-scrambling popcorn movie, albeit one made by the same guy behind The Transporter and Transporter 2. So, yeah, not as heady as Nolan's pic.
