Four wannabe magicians hit the big-time with the help of a mysterious benefactor. Roundly panned by critics, but I’d have to say that this was fairly good fun. Yes, if you go in expecting some fantastical movie like The Illusionist or The Prestige, you’ll be sorely disappointed, but as a popcorn heist movie with-a-twist, it works well. The only downer was Jesse Eisenberg who seemed to be playing this new character in exactly the same way that he played Mark Zuckerberg.

“Who the Hell is the Captain anyway?”—Roy Mathur
“He is not an adventurer, rock star and supervillain with a penchant for G&Ts, C7H10N4O2 and insanely loud music. His exploits do not usually involve arriving just in time to save the multiverse (or thoroughly bugger it up) in a Vimana shaped like a wardrobe. And, contrary to the wanted posters, he is certainly not a multi-tentacled cyborg from the 27th dimension.”—Anonymous
“Finally an honest review…great!”—Shayne T. Wright
