Now You See Me
On paper, Now You See Me looks like one heck of a heist thriller. Featuring a terrific cast that includes Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco as four magicians brought together by a mysterious benefactor, Mark Ruffalo as the rumpled cop hellbent on stopping their dazzling crime spree, and Morgan Freeman as a famous magic debunker who might be working for either side, it gives every appearance of a sleek, tightly written caper, with the added benefit of cool magic tricks thrown into the mix.
