My thought on the movie? : I watched Now You See Me 1 a few years back and loved it ! But I watched Now You See Me 2 and I am OBSESSED with this sequel! This is a well directed and well thought movie. All the elements in this movie complement each other so well. The plot twists are mind blown! I don’t even know how the production team came out with this idea. Along the movie, this movie couldn’t make you stop thinking of the possibilities of what might happen next in the movie. This movie is definitely not predictable. It is unpredictable and full of wonder. The actors were so spot on, their characters fit them so well! I was surprised by the end of the movie, of how much I enjoyed the character of the new member of horsemen, Lula (Lizzy Caplan). She lighted up the whole movie and the humor she brought into it is entertaining. I was thrilled when I saw Daniel Radcliffe as the antagonist. He is another great character in the movie and he played his role so well. “WTH!” “WOW!!!” “The hell!” <– My reaction the entire time in the cinema.
It was so worth it. Highly recommended!
