Now You See Me
Sometimes films don't need great reviews and perfect plots to be entertaining. Sometimes compelling performances from likable leads can help smooth over plot issues. Such is the case with our next Rialto Recommends NOW YOU SEE ME. Released in the summer of 2013 this was a great counter-programmer to the sequels and would be blockbusters. Starring Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Melanie Laurent, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman NOW YOU SEE ME centers on an F.B.I. Agent and an Interpol Detective as they track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances, and reward their audiences with the money. Screen International said "Smart casting, agreeable performances and a fresh narrative backdrop power this facile, twisty treat, helmed by Louis Leterrier." While Movieline said "Pure summer movie magic - literally. More fun than Ocean's 11, 12 and 13 combined. You won't believe you eyes - and that's the point." NOW YOU SEE ME is streaming on FXNow and DirectTV or is available to rent for a modest fee from Apple, RedBox, Amazon, GooglePlay, YouTube, Vudu and others HERE.
