Their characters are just so dull that even their talents can not save them. Jesse Eisenberg acting roles has always bemused me, he wasn't the only one who destroy Superman vs Batman, there was a whole load of crap in that movie. Hope that many people will see it before the fact that it is garbage gets out and people stay away. This movie has a lot of thrills and some questions are yet again left unanswered,but this time it is forgivable. I liked the first movie, I could say that I kinda loved it. So one day, I actually sat down and watched Now You See Me after hearing a lot of mixed reviews about it.
Chu and written by Ed Solomon. I watched the movie with a friend. Also, the circumstances in this movie are quite unbelievable. The first movie had some ridiculous, almost ludicrous, and quite unbelievable feats involved, but the second movie takes it to a whole other level. I did fall asleep during quite a few sequences because the movie was so boring, slow, and predictable, however, even though I missed some things, I was never lost or confused when I woke up. But only once or twice because of the dialogues and numerous jokes.
The entire cast returns,excluding Isla Fisher,who is replaced by Lizzy Caplan. Action, Adventure, Comedy, Crime, Mystery, Thriller 2016 Year 129 Mins 6. And we haven't even taken into consideration the logistical implications of what happens. Even though my expectations were very low. Its a movie about magicians right? But the truth is everything is stupid and lacks credibility. There is no grit of grounding of actions, stuff just keeps happening on top of other stuff and without any kind of character or story implications the film becomes more of a showcase of dull visual tricks.
We are introduced to a new character early on with no real explanation as to the absence of Isla Fisher's character, I think the most plausible explanation is that Isla Fisher must be the only person who actually read the script before filming started! It's in my other hand! I really liked the first one so I went to see this as soon as possible hoping for more but it seems like they doubled down on all the things people hated about the first movie. I remember not liking the first one, but still spending an okay- time. If you suspension of disbelief comes easy to you, then you'll also like it. I got a head ache from this movie, it was a terrible experience, I don't recommend it and the shortness of my review is reflective of how lost with words I am about it. Atlas, having grown tired of waiting for Rhodes to give them a mission, seeks out The Eye himself. Directing is chaotic and messy in order to make you feel lost and to make you think it's so intelligent that you can't follow everything.
The joke is on us for spending money on this turkey! I mean honestly, I'm having a hard time writing this review because I can't even remember what I disliked about this movie. I dare say that I love the first movie, but the sequel sucks. To summarise, the movie is bad in everything story line, acting, dialogue Don't even bother to watch it. Re-watch the first film instead. The actors were still pretty likable, even Daniel Radcliffe was good, but I thought he was completely underutilized, and he barely did anything. Because there is really nothing very believable in it. I used to think that the characters in the first movie were good and well tough out - they were good as a team and fun to be watched.
If the first movie keeps you guessing until the final scene, then Now You See Me 2 just basically tells the whole story in a straight line. It does have you guessing a lot,and the characters are likable. If you ignore my advice and still watch this, then prepare to have your disbelief suspended, battered into screaming submission and then vomited onto the floor. I'm stopping now because criticizing this movie can take hours. Yet, as soon as we start getting into this film's second act things fall apart to a mind numbing degree and I mean that literally, my mind went blank with the level of stupidity and inconsequentially of what was going on, I watched this film in a state of trance where I couldn't tell if I was dozing off or simply bored to death. The ending does seem a bit implausible,and that us one of the biggest flaws in the film.
And if you're really curious, just wait for that scene 10 minutes into the movie to decide whether you really want to be dumb enough to waste another hour plus. Lizzy Caplan's addition to the quirky loudmouth lady sidekick is just odd, can't tell if it is her acting or just terrible symmetry for the role. This movie is 100% predictable even if you fall asleep , it's boring, it's slow, and it's just a lazy cash grab. I really enjoyed the first film. Honestly, this movie was embarrassing to watch. I guess what I'm trying to say is: If you like movies that are fast paced, where they try to cram as much as possible into the movie in as little time as possible, kind of a movie directed by a hamster or something, then you'll probably like this movie.
Now they decide to add one of the worst actors ever in the history of acting, Daniel Radcliffe. This film is a mess! It's just plain bad To pair with the bad plot, the acting was also horrid. Mainly, the problem is the scenario. But the movie left space open for a sequel,and here it is. Unfortunately, the trailer is infinitely better than the actual film. The show is unexpectedly interrupted by a mysterious individual who reveals to the world that Wilder, believed to be dead, is actually alive, and that Rhodes is their mole, forcing Dylan to evade his new partner Natalie Austin Sanaa Lathan.
The Four Horsemen resurface, and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet. At one point, I was never going to watch the first movie, but that all changed when a friend of mine had recommended it to me. Giving people two hours of enjoyable cinematic fun has disappeared from the equation. It's just a really light, breezy, nonstop fun movie, and it knows it. Don't be fooled by the great cast.
If you like superhero movies - watch one of those. I mean, can they really throwing cards from one to another without anyone noticing? Now, they are just annoying and try soooo hard to look cool with their crappy dialogue and outrageous tricks. I'm always hesitant about watching sequels, but I figured if they at least follow a similar plot line, it should be somewhat enjoyable. However, these few scenes couldn't save this forgettable mess of a film. It was boring and confusing. I only stayed with it because of company.
