Storyline

Superstar magicians Burt Wonderstone (Steve Carell) and Anton Marvelton (Steve Buscemi) have ruled the Las Vegas Strip for years, raking in millions with illusions as big as Burt's growing ego. But lately the duo's greatest deception is their public friendship, while secretly they've grown to loathe each other. Facing cutthroat competition from guerrilla street magician Steve Gray (Jim Carrey), whose cult following surges with each outrageous stunt, even their show is starting to look stale. But there's still a chance Burt and Anton can save the act - both onstage and off - if only Burt can get back in touch with what made him love magic in the first place. Written by stefanstojkov

Magical!
9 June 2013 | by See all my reviews

I dunno why people hate this movie, or why have they rated it so low. Oh wait, I kinda do. They just don't get it.

Before CGI, before VFX, all people had were real magicians doing elaborate and jaw dropping acts, in theaters, where live audiences were entertained, not some recorded and processed show.

The movie essentially captures that golden age and blends a heart-warming story with magic.

Stellar performances by Steve Carrell, Steve Buscemi, Jim Carrey and Olivia Wilde. An absolute delight. A must watch, whether or not you like magic.
