Now You See Me 2

Now You See Me 2

Action, Adventure, Comedy

The Four Horsemen resurface and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet.

The critical consensus

It’s an impressively starry cast, but sadly, this lacks the charm, wit and, yes, magic of the original. You’ll like it, not a lot.

The cliff-hanging escapes are diverting enough but you can have too much of a good thing.

**(*)(*)(*)Allan Hunter, Daily Express, 01/07/2016

The Horsemen are smug, the plot sometimes impenetrable but the third act is such cleverly orchestrated fun perhaps there is hope that all will become clear in the already announced Now You See Me 3.

In “real” life and real time, these tricks would be much more impressive but when they’re staged with the help of editing and CGI, they don’t seem so special.

Daniel Radcliffe, Woody Harrelson, Jesse Eisenberg, Dave Franco and Mark Ruffalo star in this underinteresting magician-thieves caper.

A second helping of the magicians-turned-criminal-masterminds wheeze proves a tricky sell.
