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.

While in New Orleans, French INTERPOL agent, Alma Dray, is wearing a striped shirt. This is a reference to a famous French New Wave film, Breathless (1960), in which the main female character, Patricia Franchini, wears striped clothes throughout the film. This look, along with short hair, became the "look" throughout the 60's and 70's. This "look" has been revamped among celebrities recently, as the popular culture looks to French New Wave as a retro and stylish inspiration. See more »
After their final act, when standing in Times Square, one of the jumbo screens is displaying a headline that says The Four Horsemen disappeared after running off a building. Only three of the four Horsemen were present for that event. See more »
Isn't there a proud tradition in the FBI of men wearing dresses? No shame, Agent Fuller. No shame.

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 »
I was given free advanced screening tickets to see this film, and being the film buff that I am, I took them and went and saw it. I had seen a trailer before hand and knew what to expect from the film, but I gotta be honest, my expectations were low and the only reason I watched it is cause they were free tickets.
Now, after seeing it, I can tell you the film was an awesome surprise. The cast was great, the action fun, and the plot unique. I didn't see any of the twists coming and I found the film to be very entertaining. It doesn't get too convoluted at any point and is a great chase/illusion film. It's like a funner version of The Prestige, not that the two belong in the same class, just an easy way to quickly summarize what the movie is trying to accomplish (although Michael Caine is in both films!)
Go see it, as will I, again. A fun summer movie that is likely to surprise more than a few people with its plot and twists!
