Unlike the first one, which had a few plot holes, but a fairly convoluted and charming plot, this one is empty.
The characters are lacking in substance, the magic acts are now obviously computer generated and thus boring. I mean if you go for computer generated magic, go full harry potter. The plot is predictable at times, cliché (evil twin? what is this a soap opera?) and face palm worthy the rest of the time. And it actually detracts from the art of magic. Which is a shame.
Acting is not bad, Morgan Freeman can't go wrong really. Woody Harrelson always a fun actor to watch. Anyway , it is the script and impossible without CGI magic acts that ruins this for me.
Hope they make better decisions in the 3rd part. Which I sincerely hope they will do , if not for anything else , to make amends for this one
