An anonymous benefactor turns four small-time magicians – Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher and Dave Franco – into a Las Vegas act.
When their first show climaxes with them robbing a Paris bank without leaving the stage, FBI agent Mark Ruffalo and Interpol’s Mélanie Laurent step in, while wealthy sponsor Michael Caine and celebrity debunker Morgan Freeman look on from the sidelines. So, what will the group do next and who is pulling the strings..?
This flashy thriller throws in tricksy misdirection galore and the twisty plot is clever, though the spell wears off towards the end.
