Now You See Me by Louis Leterrier, 2013 (PG-13)

with Morgan Freeman (Invictus, The Dark Knight Rises, RED, Oblivion), Isla Fisher (The Great Gatsby, Rango), Mark Ruffalo (Margaret, The Kids Are All Right, Shutter Island, Avengers), Dave Franco, Woody Harrelson (The Messenger, The Hunger Games, Game Change), Michael Caine (The Dark Knight Rises, Sleuth), Jesse Eisenberg (The Social Network, To Rome With Love, Solitary Man), Mélanie Laurent (Paris, Inglourious Basterds), Common (American Gangster), Michael Kelly (Did you Hear About The Morgans?, The Adjustment Bureau, House of Cards - season 1), David Warshofsky, J. LaRose, Caitriona Balfe

Brainy magicians Atlas and Henley lead a troupe of illusionists who specialize in robbing from the rich, in the form of banks, and giving to the poor, their audiences, all while trying to outwit a team of FBI agents determined to bring them down.

Entertainment? Yes. But with a certain level of intelligence, creativity, the dialogues are fast and witty,  the acting impeccable (except perhaps Dave Franco who seems to have been erased from the movie in the editing...), the cast impressive, the magic oh well, magical. This was a fun film to watch, where special effect make sense, where you can be bluffed but try and find the explanation, a strange thing in cinema when it all started with Méliès being a magician himself and playing with film to create his magic tricks.
