In a future where people stop aging at 25, but are engineered to live only one more year, having the means to buy your way out of the situation is a shot at immortal youth. Here, Will Salas finds himself accused of murder and on the run with a hostage - a connection that becomes an important part of the way against the system.
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.
In 2074, when the mob wants to get rid of someone, the target is sent into the past, where a hired gun awaits - someone like Joe - who one day learns the mob wants to 'close the loop' by sending back Joe's future self for assassination.
Three buddies wake up from a bachelor party in Las Vegas, with no memory of the previous night and the bachelor missing. They make their way around the city in order to find their friend before his wedding.
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.

Demonstrating that he really had learned how to throw cards with forceful accuracy, Dave Franco sliced a half of a banana into a further half with his hotel key card, while promoting the film on the Bob Rivers radio show (KJR-FM, Seattle). See more »

During the show half the audience was hypnotized to believe that they were in the Philharmonic. I guess that "bullshit" was a trigger word.
Okay. Hey, hey, écoutez! Etienne, come on down from there, you're not in the Philharmonic. How do you say "stop" in French?

massively insulting to the intelligence of audiences everywhere
by far one of the worst films I have seen in some time, it takes massive leaps that require the watcher to suspend their disbelief to the point that you actually have to dumb yourself down to believe the plot. The CGI prestige was laughable and all in all the film was disrespectful to magicians, illusionists and hypnotists by depicting each of the horsemen as a smug, know it all dick. The plot barely carried itself and the acting became poorer as the story went along. I would only suggest watching this film if you fancy feeling like you have smashed yourself in the forehead with a hammer and then had Satan jack off into your mind.
