“Now You See Me 2” is a sequel to “Now You See Me.” However, you do not need to see the first movie to understand and enjoy this sequel.
“Now You See Me 2” has a lot of adventure, comedy, mystery and, of course, magic. This movie at times really gets you to sit on the edge of your seat. At other times it will make you laugh so hard you can barely breathe.
This movie is about a group of magicians called the Four Horsemen that includes Merritt (Woody Harrelson), Atlas (Jesse Eisenberg), Jack (Dave Franco), and Lula (Lizzy Caplan). These magicians are brought together to go on assignments where they use their skills to protect the public. Some say they are criminals, some say they are heros. Specifically, they are on a mission to expose a tech company that is up to no good. Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe, the main character from the Harry Potter movies) is the main criminal in the movie.
There is a lot of adventure in the movie as some of the best made plans don’t always go as planned landing the Four Horsemen into unforeseen and dangerous situations. Will they fail or succeed? Do they huddle together and work as a team or tear apart and go their own ways? Do they all survive? You’ll have to watch the movie to find out.
The actors do a really great job in this movie. I think that each one really fits the personality of the characters that they are portraying. I especially enjoyed the hypnotist (played by Woody Harrelson) because he was funny. I also enjoyed the street magician, Jack (played by Dave Franco). He had good skills, was funny, and had a unique personality.
In my opinion this sequel was better than the first movie. It had a more creative plot and more action. The movie was 2 hours and 9 minutes long which was a perfect length! It is rated PG-13 however I think that it was fine for kids 10+. There wasn’t really any sex in it, and there was minimal swearing. There was a lot of fighting and action scenes though. The end of the movie definitely hints that there could be another sequel. That would be a good idea for this fan!!!
