Now You See Me 2013: A Review

Now You See Me is a 2013 American heist film directed by Louis Leterrier from a screenplay by Ed Solomon, Boaz Yakin, and Edward Ricourt and a story by Yakin and Ricourt. It is the first installment in the Now You See Me series.

The film features an ensemble cast of Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Mélanie Laurent, Isla Fisher, Common, Dave Franco, Michael Caine, and Morgan Freeman. The plot follows an FBI agent and an Interpol detective who track and attempt to bring to justice a team of magicians who pull off bank heists and robberies during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.



Magicians J. Daniel Atlas, Merritt McKinney, Henley Reeves, and Jack Wilder each receive a tarot card leading them to a New York City apartment, where they discover hologram technology with instructions from an unknown benefactor. A year later, at the MGM Grand Las Vegas, they perform as "The Four Horsemen" in a show funded by insurance magnate Arthur Tressler. Their final trick appears to transport an audience member inside the vault of the Crédit Républicain bank in Paris. Stacks of euros are drawn into the vault's air vents and showered on the Las Vegas crowd; the trick is shown to have actually happened as the Paris vault is found empty of its recent shipment of Euros.

FBI agent Dylan Rhodes and French Interpol agent Alma Dray seize and interrogate the Horsemen about the robbery but, having no evidence to hold them, have no choice but to release them. They turn to Thaddeus Bradley, a former magician turned magic debunker. Thirty years ago, Lionel Shrike, a magician exposed by Thaddeus, attempted to relaunch his career, but died inside a safe during a failed escape trick.

The Horsemen perform their second show at a New Orleans auditorium where they steal millions of dollars from Tressler's bank account and distribute it to their audience members who were denied insurance claims by Tressler's company. Dylan and Alma pursue the Horsemen to their next location in New York City but fail to catch them. Dylan is removed from the case by his superior Evans due to his lack of progress but continues to investigate with Alma's help.

The Horsemen prepare for their final show at 5 Pointz where they plan to expose a corrupt businessman named Arthur Case. However, they are captured by mercenaries led by Jack's former employer who reveals himself as Evans' son. He takes them to an abandoned warehouse where he tortures them for information on their benefactor. Jack escapes and causes an explosion that kills most of the mercenaries but also apparently himself.

Dylan arrives at the warehouse and frees the remaining Horsemen who reveal that Jack faked his death using a body double and explosives. They also reveal that they have been working with Rhodes as their benefactor since the beginning. Rhodes explains that he is Lionel Shrike's son and that he orchestrated the whole scheme as revenge against those who ruined his father's career: Thaddeus for exposing him, Tressler for refusing his insurance claim, Case for providing the faulty safe that killed him, and Evans for ignoring his pleas for justice.

The Horsemen perform their final show at Central Park where they expose Case's involvement in money laundering and transfer his funds to various charities before disappearing into the crowd. Thaddeus realizes that Rhodes is behind everything and tries to alert the authorities but is arrested as Rhodes planted evidence framing him as the mastermind of the heists. Rhodes visits Thaddeus in prison and reveals his identity as Shrike's son before leaving him to rot.
