Now You See Me 2

Action Comedy Thriller


 

The four horsemen come out of hiding to pull off a new heist- but who is pulling their strings?

They say a good magician never reveals their tricks. If that was the case, then this film would be even more frustrating than it already is. The convoluted plot and the abundance of loose threads are only mildly forgotten due to the film's constant misdirection, and pay-offs that come from the explanations of the elaborate 'magic tricks'. Following its predecessor's cat-and-mouse structure, this sequel does have moments of brilliance, but inevitably is unable to pull out anything substantial from the hat. Now we've seen it all.
