When you wake, you will beg for Merrritt's forgiveness and realize that you will never be half the man he is.
[Jack wakes Chase with a slap]
Merritt, I am so, so very, very sorry about how pathetic your pupil is. Hey, a little hint on your technique of surprise. It lacks that all-essential little element of surprise!

While the first installation was enjoyable, the second one does not live up. The plot was bland and dull and dragging. The dialogue was dry and just downright stupid. The magic tricks were OK (and unnecessary), but there was no wow factor. No jaw-dropping revealing or mind hack or anything like that. If the first movie keeps you guessing until the final scene, then Now You See Me 2 just basically tells the whole story in a straight line. It's just plain bad
To pair with the bad plot, the acting was also horrid. Lizzy Caplan was beyond tragic. There is no charisma in her character at all. Replacing Isla Fisher was a really bad move. And when you thought: "Well, at least Michael Caine or Morgan Freeman will provide some top-notch acting?", you were wrong. Their characters are just so dull that even their talents can not save them.
