Storyline

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.

Goofs

While it's possible to project a "hollow" effect on the side of a building, it must be carefully calculated to account for the viewer's position, and only works while the viewer is in that spot. If the viewer is in wrong position, the perspective of the projection and the shape of the building no longer match and the illusion is broken. Yet in the final trick, the "hollow building" effect is seen from above, below, in front, left, and right, simultaneously, and moves with the movie camera. The audience would only see a weird, skewed image of the building. See more »

A fun ride, but something's missing
31 May 2013 | by See all my reviews

This is an interesting concept, surely not a genre played out much in Hollywood. The cast is jam packed with all stars giving great (but not their best) performances. The missing piece of the puzzle? Character development.

That's not to say that there is any lack of interesting characters, each of the four horsemen bring a very unique style to the movie (besides Henley, she's rather weak as a character), and the sheer amount of Talent present in each scene guarantees that you'll be entertained.

10/10? Hardly. But definitely a solid 8 for me. Entertaining, fun, and definitely a concept worth exploring on the big screen. Just remember, the closer you look, the less you'll actually see.
