Now You See Me: The Second Act, has the same under tone as the first one. “We are here to be the Robin hood for the modern day man.” In the beginning it reminds you where the story left off. I wish I can say they did it in an innovative style but really the kept the idea of showmanship.
SPOILER ALERT: There is a new horseman that joins the team, she brings in a little bit of a darker magic. Where death is funny. She ends up being one of my favorites. Maybe it is because she is spunky and new, I really like her style.
Even though there are new tricks and someone to reveal them all, it still follows the same style. Which works for the movie. Just like the first movie it is the magic that keeps you in the seat, not the story line. I found myself caught off guard at first because the tricks seem to be either falling apart or being revealed before you could enjoy them, yet that didn’t stop the Four Horseman, Special Effects teams, or Visual effects team. The tricks just kept improving as they came along.
I am trying my best not to give it away; however, if you are a fan and followed the first one, you know this is or will be a part of colt classic films. I feel Lionsgate is onto something. Another SPOILER: there will be a #3 Now you see me coming out next year. I’m not sure if this is your type of movie, I simply know I am love these kinds of movies and I cannot wait to see what tricks they will come up with next.
