    An Excellent Sequel.

    Almost everyone from “Now You See Me”, returns in “Now You See Me 2”, except for Henley Reeves who is replaced with Lula May. While the film is fun to watch, there is a huge difference (at least in the beginning), in that “The Horsemen”, who were always two steps ahead of everyone else in the first film, and could seemingly do no wrong, suddenly can’t seem to do anything right. They are forced into the service of Walter Mabry (Daniel Radcliffe), to help him regain his stolen business. And that’s when things start to turn back around. Sequels have a tendency to be kind of a replay of the original. Not this time. A great storyline, that connects to some of the subplots of the previous film, and resolves them. Lot’s of surprises, and well worth adding to your library.

    A sequel can never be the original, and rarely are they as good as the original as they are frequently made just to capitalize on the success of the first film. Here we have the same characters (minus Isla Fisher as Henley Reeves) from the first film doing what they, as the Horsemen, do. As we expect, their productions are elaborate, their illusions are grand, and their adventure is filled with twists that actually bring even more satisfaction to the original by adding another layer to a story that you thought you already knew. Also, the addition of Lizzy Caplan as Lula May was a bonus. Caplan is funny and delivers a performance that seems very natural for her. If they make another one it would be a mistake to not include Caplan. Ultimately, as a sequel, Now You See Me 2 delivers what one wants to see in a sequel and it does it with the right dose of humor, action, and adventure, and the ending is reasonably satisfying.

    I was a huge fan of the first film, love the plot, love the script, love the cast. The 2nd film did fall a little short. I still enjoy it, but it didn’t have that magic that the first film had. 1st of all I was not a fan of the new girl they brought in to replace the original. She wasn’t very funny and a little awkward and weird. 2nd there is an evil twin the film. And the twin is horrible. Really why in the world did they do that, it is so stupid and really takes away from the movie. Despite theses negative things I still love the magic of the film and overlook them to enjoy and get into it.

    I really enjoyed the Now You See Me movies. They never really explain how the tricks are done (if they could even be done in real life without post processing), but the effects are great. And I think that having even a little belief that these tricks could be done in real life shows that the movie isn't totally fantastical. While the plot may not be extremely original or twisty, I was left surprised at certain plot points. Definitely an entertaining movie, and I'm glad they are going to make a third.

    This film has its ups and downs, and if it weren't for the strong acting performances by Lizzy Kaplin, Jesse Eisenberg, and Woody Harrelson I don't think this movie would be as well received as it was for me. I really enjoyed the conjoining of American and Chinese culture. That aspect of diversity and seeing the Chinese equivalent to Las Vegas in Macao was a nice touch. This movie should be a 3 and a half out of 5, but it is still a entertaining and pleasing film all around.

    As much as I like steelbook editions, I liked this cover better (darn brain isn't letting me recall the name for the picture shifting covers.. starts with an L)... anyways. The 2nd movie is at least as interesting as the first. Even though they didn't manage to bring her back, they did find a decent replacement. I actually liked this sequel more than the original. A different choice for the nemesis' actor? Maybe someone more threatening... yep, liked it anyways!

    I truly enjoyed this movie and its predecessor. Great entertainment and just plain fun to watch. The actors are great and although I wish all the cast had come back seeing the movie releases for this year I see why not ( she already has two out and is releasing a third before Christmas ) The new addition was great and gave a love interest to a character who deserved it. I've already watched them back to back and will probably do so again and again.

    If you are a fan of the first "Now You See Me" film, you will really enjoy this follow-up. It is definitely a movie where you should have seen the first one to follow and properly understand the characters. Picking up where the first film left off, the Horsemen are in hiding, but emerge with a new plan. Things are not as they seem, of course, and the plot takes off from there. If you loved the first one definitely pick this up

    A sequel that doesnt disappoint! If you enjoyed the magic in the first one, the second one is a great follow up act. Most of the original cast returns and the addition of Daniel Radcliffe as the bad guy gives our team an additional challenge along with the FBI. You find the magicians in far away places like London and China this go around, where they pull of some amazing tricks and discover some secrets along the way.

    All in all, the second “Now You See Me” was almost as good as the first. I have a huge pet peeve when there are different actors in the sequels than in the original, but at least they didn’t try to make us accept the new leading lady was the same character as in the first. However.... I hold out that the movie would have been better with all original cast.

    I really enjoyed this movie a bit more than the first one. I thought the first one was a little bit confusion till I watched this. It is a fun movie to watch with all the neat tricks stuff! Great casts. I hate to spoil it, but you have to watch it. You need to pay attention or you got yourself in an illusion. All about magic!! If you love magic, then you would enjoy this movie.

    It is always certain to me by the end of second movie that it can be turned into a franchise easily. We need it or not. Personally I didn't enjoy this one as much I enjoyed the first one. may be the reason is that I already knew what to expect from the movie and nothing seemed to surprise me. Still I like the movie and it is a great movie to be watched on a UHD.

    Now You See Me 2 isn't as good as the original but its still a good movie. Some of the mystery is gone now that the first movie had and replacing one of the key characters from the first movie was a bit unusual but it still has a surprising twist to the story. The Illusions the 4 Horsemen portray have been taken up a notch in the sequel and are worth the watch.

    The storyline picks up with all but one of the main characters from the original movie. The action is fast paced and plot twists are enjoyable to see unfold. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who enjoyed the original. For those who haven't already seen the original movie, I recommend that you watch the them in order to know the "back story".

    Not quite as good as the 1st one, but still very entertaining.......Adding Lizzy Caplan was a good move..........she is so snotty (and cute) that it was a like of breath of fresh air...........My only complaint was that it was cut so fast you barely had time to focus on one scene before the movie moved on to another..........But that was a minor complaint.

    I really enjoyed the original Now You See Me and was very excited when a sequel was released. I was happy to see most of the original cast was back, with a few new faces. My fav was Daniel Radcliff as a villain. The sequel was good, but not as tightly written as the first, but still a very fun movie to watch. I would recommend this to fans of the original.

    This was a great stand alone movie but if you take the first movie in to account it is by far 2nd best. The change of lead female was huge for me and the new one does not live up. Hope was left by the way side with the end felt they set it up for a bigger finish. But on a high note action packed cool stunts and same sarcasm that made the first one great.

    Now You See Me 2 is an entertaining sequel but it helps greatly to have seen the first. The good guys who were the bad guys who were the good guys who were the bad guys come out of hiding to save the day. Their slight of hand is movie magic but if you enjoy the mystery of illusion then suspending you disbelief to enjoy this movie is worth the while.

    This sequel is good. As I said on my review, don't expect this to be artsy cinema; it is a very entertaining story, and the chemistry between cast members is really good. I was not too fond of the idea of taking Isla Fisher's character, but they managed to not screw up the female lead in doing so. New characters are funny, especially Harrelson's.

    I felt that this sequel carried the same level of fun as the first Now You See Me, but added a little bit more drama, which worked out well in my opinion. I really liked how the story was wrapped up in the end. These movies are super great if you can just suspend disbelief and enjoy the ride to the end. Blu-ray quality is very good.
