If it's crap ... We'll tell you
Still not quite sure how to gauge my enthusiasm for 'Now You See Me.' It has an impressive cast--Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Mark Ruffalo, Morgan Freeman, Isla Fisher, etc. I'm also a fan of director Louis Leterrier ('Unleashed'). However, so much of what we've seen in trailers makes the movie look like a douchey amalgam of 'Ocean's Eleven' and 'The Prestige.' To the latter point, there's even a prisoner handcuff switch gag and 'Now You See Me' has Sir Michael Caine. Today, the first four minutes of the film have been released online. I guess I'm interested, but still not 100% sold. Take a look at the opening sequence below and let us know what you think.
