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

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]
