'Now You See Me': More Abracadabra, Less Explanation, Please

Learning the inner workings of a magic trick is almost always a bit of a disappointment. The magician's flourish is what makes the show fun--see the nuts and bolts of his or her work, and the sense of wonder shatters. It's fitting then, that surprise hit "Now You See Me" reflects the profession upon which it focuses: it's most fun during the trick, and much less so when the curtain is pulled back for us. Still, it's a fun summer fluff movie that transports and maybe even wows a bit--as long as you don't look too close.
