The Four Horsemen (Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Lizzy Caplan) return for a second mind-bending adventure, elevating the limits of stage illusion to new heights and taking them around the globe. One year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. The man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe), a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.


Review


Now You Me See Me 2 follows on pretty much from the end of the first film and if you've never seen the first one then you'll probably wonder what on earth is going on.

Mark Ruffalo returns as Dillan, the FBI agent, who is on the Four Horseman's side and still blames Thaddeus (Morgan Freeman) for the death of his father in an escape act that went wrong.

The Four Horseman, led by Jesse Eisenberg, are still on the run from the FBI when they're forced into stealing a microchip by Daniel Radcliffe's IT entrepreneur and wannabe magician.

What follows is more Ocean’s Eleven than the original Now You See Me as the four magicians use their talents to steal the chip from its rightful owner.

As is the way with magicians all is not what it seems and there's a number of twists and turns on the way to the films spectacular conclusion during the New Year’s Eve celebration in London.

Now You See Me 2 moves along at a cracking pace and if you’re a fan of the first film then this second outing is sure to please.
