Now You See Me wasn’t a great movie, but it was fun, and that’s most of what I’m looking for when I got to the theaters. It had a solid cast, plenty of clever tricks, and a good heist story. I’m not saying it’s The new Oceans’ 11 or anything like that, but it makes for a good rainy day flick. So far, the sequel looks like it might just continue the trend. Also, the addition of Daniel Radcliffe to the cast definitely doesn’t hurt.
THE FOUR HORSEMEN [Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan] return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than WALTER MABRY [Daniel Radcliffe], a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
