The team of script writers knitted a highly elaborated plot with a lot of twists and surprises. I had fun watching the hilarious events on the screen - especially because of the fine actors. Woody Harrelson had the strongest impression on me. As usual he showed a perplexing mixture of seriousness and goofiness. The fast speaking Jesse Eisenberg gives the illusionists a kind of scientific touch. His prosaic and analytical style makes the story almost believable. It is also amusing to watch Mark Ruffalo as a detective. His character reminded me a bit of "Columbo".
"Now You See Me" is a nice opportunity to escape the summerly heat and to forget the daily grind for some minutes.
