Consensus: Now You See Me's thinly sketched characters and scattered plot rely on sleight of hand from the director to distract audiences.

Time Out

Bustling, glittery, uninvolving.

New York Magazine/Vulture

Leterrier also tries to pack an extraordinary amount of story and twists into a fairly ordinary running time, resulting in editing so choppy that sometimes even the easy parts are hard to follow.

Now You See Me is a slick crime caper that works because of its witty dialogue & large cast, but falls flat due to a finale that fails to leave any sort of magical impression

New Yorker

Complicated nonsense about four professional magicians caught up in an elaborate revenge plot.

Variety

This would-be "Ocean's Eleven" of the magic world remains watchable throughout, even as it plods along without ever quite fulfilling its potential.

Clever, original, wildly improbable, wildly enjoyable and directed with all the necessary flash and dazzle, the film combines the pleasure of a well-engineered heist movie with a twisty-turny plot full of wit, double-takes and sleight-of-camera.

If you're OK with the film playing you for a sap, you'll laugh and clap and wonder how that bird got into that hat. But if you think there's a difference between being tricked and being cheated, you may feel swindled.

One of those movies with a terrific premise and a less-than-terrific follow-through.

Rip It Up

This surprisingly witty, deliciously well-played and sneakily subversive outing from director Louis Letterier freaks out a little into its final act but, nevertheless, ranks as one of the year's most entertaining pics.

With an elusive and interesting cast, a thrilling plot, and a lot of suspense built up until the inevitable end, this film should be praised for its innovation… More

Stylish and entertaining. Generally, the acting was good -- with the usual, notable exception of Woody Harrelson and the typically lackluster Mark Ruffalo.
