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.

The book that Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) is reading when the FBI arrests him and the rest of The Four Horsemen in the beginning of the film is "The Savage Detectives" by Roberto Bolaño. See more »
(at around 1h 20 mins) When Agent Dylan finds Alma Dray his phone is repeatedly held to his chest/at his ear between shots. See more »
The level of incompetence displayed on the case, that's a magic trick in and of itself. Abracadabra, I'm takin' over...

About halfway through the closing credits a scene is shown where the four horsemen arrive in the desert at an abandoned, dilapidated amusement park in Las Vegas. Appears in both the Blu-Ray Edition and the iTunes Extended Cut. See more »
Four magicians answer a mysterious call to work for an obscure secret society. A year later, they call themselves the Four Horseman, and create havoc with their magic. Their first trick to rob a bank draw the FBI and Interpol into a cat and mouse game.
Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco play the 4 magicians. They have great chemistry and their interactions have great energy. They had a fun time being interrogated by Mark Ruffalo's FBI agent. It was a promising start as a fun interesting movie that gives us a little insight into magicians. Then it turned.
It became all flash little substance. The heists kept coming. It's like the movie was its own trick. They kept pumping up the flash in order to disguise the lack of a good story. And the final twist was just fool's gold. There is no foreshadowing. It was done for its shock value. Sadly, by then I was out of shock. All sound and fury signifying nothing.
