One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public's adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, The Four Horsemen resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all. Written by

Jack is shown wearing a security guard uniform throughout the entire infiltration of the launch party. When the party has been intercepted and Jack is exposed to everyone, he is still shown wearing the security guard uniform, but when the Horsemen are on the roof minutes later, Jack is suddenly back to wearing his leather jacket and T-shirt. Even if this is needed for the story and some time had passed between scenes for him to change, Jack was being chased by the FBI and was in a hurry to escape the building, so he would not have had anytime to change back, nor would he have risked wasting any time changing his clothes anyway.

If you want a movie about magicians, and are not 12 years old, I'll recommend The Illusionist or The Prestige. If you like superhero movies
watch one of those. This is kind of a mix.
I guess what I'm trying to say is:
If you like movies that are fast paced, where they try to cram as much as possible into the movie in as little time as possible, kind of a movie directed by a hamster or something, then you'll probably like this movie.
If you suspension of disbelief comes easy to you, then you'll also like it. Because there is really nothing very believable in it. All the magic tricks smell of CGI and "movie", and there is never doubt whether it's gonna work or not.
