Now You See Me 2: Jon M. Chu is trying too hard (or, even worse, not really trying at all); the smoke and mirrors do little besides showing how ineffective they are. The plot is nothing but a sorry excuse to show a few half-baked, uninspired, dull heists. The film looks slick, with many different locations making an appearance. The saving grace, however, is the large and good-looking cast; not so much by what they do here (they are not asked to do much), but by the simple virtue of having Michael Caine, Morgan Freeman, Woody Harrelson and Mark Ruffalo making their appearances; all of them deserved better.
