Storyline

One year after outwitting the F.B.I. 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

Disappears from your mind as soon as it's over
6 July 2016 | by darkreignnSee all my reviews

I really love the first "Now You See Me," like, a lot. It's just a really light, breezy, nonstop fun movie, and it knows it. And the trailer for this movie looked like it would be more of the same, which I was completely fine with. Unfortunately, the trailer is infinitely better than the actual film.

Honestly, this movie was embarrassing to watch. From the childishly annoying character that Lizzy Caplan plays, to the horrendously unfunny identical twin that Woody Harrelson plays, I was cringing in my seat and praying for deliverance. Now, one could argue that Lizzy Caplan's character was intentionally annoying, and that Woody Harrelson's twin character was intentionally unfunny, and while I would agree with that, it still didn't make for an enjoyable viewing experience, especially when these two characters had a significant amount of screen time.

I can't deny that "Now You See Me 2" did have some very entertaining sequences, with one particular scene involving an elaborate card trick being the definite highlight of the film. However, these few scenes couldn't save this forgettable mess of a film. I mean honestly, I'm having a hard time writing this review because I can't even remember what I disliked about this movie. It's just a completely forgettable film in every way that will leave your mind as soon as the credits start.

Huh, come to think of it, maybe this film did do something right after all: it disappears completely, just like a real magician would.
