Fifth about The Seventh

Now You See Me

Now You See meNow You See Me: flashy but vacuous as only a film with this title and tagline can be. However, as it’s said here and elsewhere, time and again, this is what generally comes with summer fare. It’s a very good-looking cast, but they are not playing characters, they are just reading dialogue as fast as they can to hide the lack of a decent story. Visually slick, but that’s yet another trick for distracting the audience. In that regard, the self-reference to magic tricks works well.
