Storyline

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 Production

Spoiler-free review
8 June 2016 | by (India) – See all my reviews

Well,I had mixed feelings about the first NYSM.It had its fair share of thrills and flaws.But the movie left space open for a sequel,and here it is.This time,Walter Mabry,a tech magnate,recruits the Horsemen into pulling of their most impossible heist yet.Daniel Radcliffe does justice to his role of the above mentioned tech magnate.The entire cast returns,excluding Isla Fisher,who is replaced by Lizzy Caplan.She is good enough to replace Fisher.

Just like the predecessor,the movie's ending contains a lot of explanations as to how they did what they were told to do.This movie has a lot of thrills and some questions are yet again left unanswered,but this time it is forgivable.It does have you guessing a lot,and the characters are likable.The ending does seem a bit implausible,and that us one of the biggest flaws in the film.

Overall a decent thriller with a nice cast.I liked it better than the first one,and hopefully the next sequel coming toward us will improve on this one.
