REVIEWS RATE:  Critics  Nothing's perfect, but it's worth seeing.    Readers  5 of 5 [Rate It]

2.5 of 4

“..the film gets a lift from offbeat characters, especially Daniel and Merritt, and humorous dialogue..”
by Stephanie Merry [Washington Post]
3 of 4

“..more seriously and plays with the idea that, in order to maintain their credibility and keep their names relevant, big-time illusionists must constantly up the ante and attempt tricks that are increasingly spectacular..”
by James Berardinelli [ReelViews]
2.5 of 4

“..it's a slick and kind of smirky entertainment..”
by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer]
Review rate : B

“..it never stops moving (the camerawork, dialogue, and plot twists keep rushing at you), and it's exceedingly clever..”
by Owen Gleiberman [Entertainment Weekly]
2.5 of 4

“..it all falls flat. For all the hocus-pocus and elaborate set pieces and the talent of the people involved..”
by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic]
2 of 5

“..even if the character development is nearly invisible, there's really no excuse for the movie's cut-rate look or shoddy plotting..”
by Elizabeth Weitzman [NY Daily News]
1.5 of 4

“..a fair response to a movie that gets damagingly worse as it goes along..”
by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone]
3.5 of 5

“..a brilliantly crafted puzzle by extension? Hardly. The whole of it is made of flash paper, intended to burn brightly for an instant before vanishing from your memory without a trace..”
by William Goss [Film.com]
2.5 of 4

“.."Now You See Me" zips by, smoothly and pleasantly thanks to that star-studded cast and the slick cinematography, but it's hard to get too attached to it. Now you see it, now you don't, now you stop thinking about it. Like magic..”
by Moira Macdonald [Seattle Times]
2 of 5

“.."Now You See Me" is an enjoyable goof that in its giddy way evokes a world propelled by technological wizardry enabling those who are clever enough to steal from everybody else..”
by Stephen Holden [New York Times]

THE DROP :

“..it isn't as powerful as the previous Lehane-inspired movies, but it has slow-building traction and three terrifically controlled performances..”
by Lisa Kennedy [Denver Post]

SOMETHING WICKED :

“..instead of remaking Bradbury's tale, a semi horror film was derived from Shakespeare's quote - and has little to do with anything except the word Wicked.....”
by James M. Tate [Cultfilmfreak Cinema]

AT THE DEVIL'S DOOR :

“.."At the Devil's Door" doesn't piece together as the eerie, semi-apocalyptic tale it's meant to become..”
by Brian Orndorf [Blu-ray.com]

BIRD PEOPLE :

“..the new storyline offers some clever moments. But the whimsy isn't enough to warrant staying the night..”
by Jordan Hoffman [NY Daily News]

HONEYMOON :

“..a steady dose of newlywed nightmare..”
by Robert Abele [LA Times]

TAKE ME TO THE RIVER :

“..you can't help but feel all the palpable joy is eliding some darker realities that would lend the copious musical performances a deeper resonance..”
by Keith Uhlich [Time Out New York]

FINDING FANNY :

“..an original story that is dark, whimsical, witty and irreverent..”
by Priya Joshi [Digital Spy]

MINE GAMES :

“..Mine Games never fully embellishes the idea. Once it finally begins to throw the plot into high gear, it's too little too late. It feels like it's simply retreading old material in a new environment..”
by Patrick Cooper [Bloody Disgusting]

THE GUEST :

“..it's an effectively bloody, breakneck ride, given an extra coat of alluring gloss by the John Carpenter-influenced 1980s styling that is currently all the rage in the genre..”
by Guy Lodge [Time Out London]

20,000 DAYS ON EARTH :

“..a highly polished, carefully constructed docu-fiction hybrid..”
by John Semley [Slant Magazine]
