Now you see me

“Now you see me” is a series of movies. I'm talking about the first two parts here (a third is planned).

The movies are in the genre of a heist thriller, which I didn't know before, but I liked the format a lot!


First of all, these movies are about magicians. Sounds dull, you think? Well, nope. But first lets talk about the plot.

An FBI agent tracks a team of magicians who rob banks during their performances and reward their audiences with the money. This is as little as one can give away without revealing just too much.


In general, the stunts are really nice and entertaining, as well as the rest of the movies. “Thriller” is matching as a genre here, because the arc of suspense is clearly there!

Wikipedia states that

The film stayed in the top 10 of the North American box office for six weeks after release.

And although a citation is missing on that, I don't doubt it. On Rotten Tomatoes the films have an average rating of 5.71/10 and 4.85/10, which is clearly too low in my opinion. I would tend to give them a clean 8/10 and 7/10, to be honest.
