Summary: Charismatic magician Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) leads a team of talented illusionists called the Four Horsemen. Atlas and his comrades mesmerize audiences with a pair of amazing magic shows that drain the bank accounts of the corrupt and funnel the money to audience members. A federal agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol detective (Mélanie Laurent) intend to rein in the Horsemen before their next caper, and they turn to Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman), a famous debunker, for help.I love being mistified!
I love “Magic” because, although I know that it is all just optical illousions but it is something I don’t need to understand to enjoy so that being said I really wanted to watch this one. I will admit, about 1/3 the way through the movie, I thought I was going be to extreemly dissapointed. I felt like they were telling the outcome of the story before they finished the movie but, I was mistaken. After watching the whole thing I realized that they were tricking me into believeing that I knew the story when I was dead wrong. The twist at the end, although by that time you could almost tell it was coming, was great.. With the “getting back at the man” theme underton it was a great feel good, be mistified movie!.
