With the help of a mysterious pill that enables the user to access 100 percent of his brain abilities, a struggling writer becomes a financial wizard, but it also puts him in a new world with lots of dangers.
Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

Remember, if the oxygen mask comes down, put it on the lawyer first. Remember.
Oh, yes. I always do. It's the lawyer first, then myself, and then the children.

If Ocean's 11 was turned into a teeny-bopper, this is it.
Its supposed to be a cast of superstars, which loosely is related to a bank heist, comes off as a poor man's knock off -- pick any of the Ocean's movies -- however they tell a story from a completely ridiculous setting; this sets the pace for the rest of the film. Production quality and big names disguise the fact that you're watching a F of a movie at best. Gets a 1 because 0 isn't available. This movie's character development is atrocious. Its rushed and doesn't identify with its audience since the characters are put in a setting that's completely ludicrous. Its a paint-by-numbers script. I should have turned it off at the 10-15 minute mark; and if you feel the same way after the beginning of Act 1, then I highly suggest you learn from my mistake and don't waste your time.
