X-Men and Now you see me in a slow-paced, CGI-intensive movie
This film is slow paced and quite boring in the first half an hour, afterwards it starts to gradually get interesting but bounces back to boredom around the end. It's a very CGI-intensive movie, not surprising since the characters have super powers, but what puzzled me is that they use CGIs in scenes that don't require them. I've watched the dubbed version and (as you might have expected) it is terrible. I would have loved to watch the original version with the Russian accents (and authentic actors emotions).
All in all, I enjoyed the film because of its OSTs and CGIs. The story is mediocre and unoriginal, and could've been better. There is also unnecessary romance (like most of other films) which I don't like. If you enjoyed Now you see me 2, then go ahead and watch this.
