Do you know these movies where you’re not totally impressed with the story but it doesn’t matter because it’s just fabulous anyways? Yeah, right, that’s what Now You See Me was for me. No wonder that I was really thrilled to hear that there was a second movie coming up this year.
The world is waiting and hoping for the Four Horsemen to reappear. And as they do to expose a tech magnate they’re kidnapped by Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe) because he wants them to steal something very well protected and the Four Horsemen have to perfectly work together for their stunt this time.
What can I say? The story is rather simple, some reviewers might say it’s bad, boring and whatever negative words you can think of – and while I’m tending to agree with that (there’s no story of the year material to be found there), I find the characters to be quite likeable. Yes, I do like them. They’re funny, they don’t always agree, they have their flaws, but they’re not boring or totally annoying, so you can empathise with them and that’s a big point for me when watching a movie. I know not everyone agrees on this topic, but I really liked them.
