We’re all familiar with how heist movies work, since Steven Soderbergh’s Ocean’s franchise broke down every step of the heist to show how clever the writers are for coming up with such an elaborate heist, so despite the twists and turns of Louis Leterrier‘s Now You See Me are clever and well thought out, playing on the ingenuity of magic and slight of hand, they’re also incredibly (unfortunately) predictable. The basic premise, a mysterious benefactor brings four street magicians, each with their own talents and skills, together to form a magic supergroup if you will, named The Four Horsemen. The ensemble cast work very well together with Daniel Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg) the self appointed leader of the group with his wanky pretentious speeches about the merits and particulates of magic and the human psyche, Merritt McKinney (Woody Harrelson) the small time mentalist who can really get inside a persons head and likes to goof around with everyone, Henley Reeves (Isla Fisher) is the sassy potential love interest for Atlas and wears some nice, tight, revealing outfits, and Jack Wilder (Dave Franco) the small time pick pocket who acts as a sort of rookie outsider in the group but is in fact a really smooth fingered badass.
The twists and turns are varied, many red herrings are thrown at us from all angles, and while the scripting is often chaotic and a little clunky, the final reveal neatly wraps the film in a nice big bow, with a final bow to the mysticism and tradition of magic and the men and women who give their lives to bring a little of it into our lives. Leader, general good guy, always looking in the right direction even when his “teammates” are getting him into trouble. Ray fakes his disability and BC seems to think its hard to recruit in the Boston metropolitan area.
True friend of Julian and Ricky (Tobacco Road) until he finds himself caught up in their schemin’. Their heists have them robbing millions of dollars, which they give away to their audience, putting them on the world stage. Not only is the ACC Tournament upon us but it’s also that time where we roll out another themed edition of our very own ACC Power Rankings.


An import that trickled down from our northern neighbor and found a place in our pantheon of great television. Cyrus takes over the trailer park when they boys aren’t around, much like Miami capitalized on a down ACC to become king of the conference. You sometimes want to sympathize with Lahey (Duke) but never can because he does too much shifty stuff. He’s trusted to keep others in line and loves them despite their flaws —  be it YOLO jumpshots or the ability to always find a way to get arrested.
While he seems to have his head on his shoulders, he’s proven to be inept even though he’s trying hard. After the first robbery, the FBI enlist Dylan Rhodes (Mark Ruffalo) to investigate the quartet and to uncover the truth behind the illusion. Even more exciting than the seven seasons of TV this product gave us, it also threw in several movies to the universe it created and another film is on the way. Like the Trailer Park Boys (Julian, Ricky and Bubbles) finally reach a sort of ceasefire with Lahey, the rest of Tobacco Road (UNC, State and Wake) has learned to deal with Duke. He is sent a beautiful assistant from Interpol, Alma Dray (Melanie Laurent), who acts as a sort of spiritual guide in debunking the myths behind the magic.


Ricky’s on-and-off again girlfriend Lucy is always ready to give him another chance while the ACC media picked State to win the league this year. Both Wake and Bubbles have catchphrases (Bzdelik’d and “deee-cent” respectively) and would probably rather be playing with model trains, or kitties. The pair are assisted in their quest to catch the crew by magician turned magic whistleblower Thaddeus Bradley (Morgan Freeman) who is following the four horsemen very closely in order to bust their miraculous deeds wide open to his millions of adoring fans. Ironically, Thaddeus supposedly started his debunking business to rebuild the publics enjoyment and interest in magic, and now that people are interested again, he is doing everything in his power to shut them down.
Do you think there’s real magic or hard science behind the show?Anyway, the release date of Now You See Me is set for June 7, 2013.
