Whoever says that sequels are never as good as the originals, will be proven wrong when they see Now You See Me 2.
Lizzy Caplan is the new the fourth Horseman, along with returning magicians Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, and Dave Franco. Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, and Michael Caine all return to keep you guessing and scratching your head at the clever and well thought-out plot.
There are more twists and turns in this movie than and Indy-car race track. Don’t worry about getting too confused by all the magic and illusions, they explain how most of them are done.
Michael Caine looks like he made his appearance right from the grave, but Morgan Freeman acts like he’s got another twenty years to go. This sequel has more of everything in it. If you’re into magic and illusions and quick-witted drama, this movie is for you. It’s good fun for the whole family.
Cathryn and I give it our best score yet, 10 out of 10.
