Tanman32123: It is in fact Considerably Boring, BUT still interesting lol..
Just not interesting enough to get a big rating. It's very confusing. I don't recommend watching it.
5 outta 10 for entertaining perpuses only.

cress: This is a film that tries to be smart and clever, but relies on implausible tricks that use a lot of cgi to accomplish them.
I'm not going to take the time to explain the plot, but why these "Four Horsemen" magicians would risk spending the rest of their life in prison just because they have a chance to join "The Eye" secret society magic club (whew...even that was a mouthful) is never explained. Do they get cookies and milk when they are accepted? Is that it--promise of baked sweets? What is it? Because you stupid fucking screenwriters string the audience along for two hours with no explanation, and that stupid fucking ending on the ferris wheel was beyond dumb. I was guessing the big twist ending reveal the whole movie, so it's not as clever as it thought it was. And I'm a fucking moron.
Don't be so hard on yourself, cress.
Ok, I won't.
Anyway, Jesse Eisenberg is the most annoying little prick in film today. Please, Jesse, take a Xanax, smoke some weed, do whatever you have to do to SLOW DOWN your mile-a-minute dialogue delivery. Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman share the screen again. Yay...a reminder of how dreadful THE DARK KNIGHT RISES was! Freeman even gets to do voiceover narration again--for the thousandth time. Mark Ruffalo is terrible, and Woody Harrelson is about the only good performance of the bunch.
It's watchable, moves at a brisk pace, but you'll find yourself rolling your eyes a lot throughout. Once it's over, you'll find yourself realizing that there was never a decent film in front of you. It was just a shitty magic trick.
