    FUN SEQUEL

    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. The cast is bigger, but the acting is great. I was skeptical with the loss of Isla Fisher, but Lizzy Caplan brings her own character into the story, and she is a welcome addition. I didn't feel like she was just a replacement for the female lead, but a very likable and important part of the team in her own right. Daniel Radcliff brings his own new character into play and performs the heck out of it. The effects are spectacular, and the twists are impressive, as you would expect. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, but only if you've seen the first

    I really enjoyed this sequel. The four Horsemen have been underground after the first movie. Henley, the female character, is replaced by a new character who is equally funny and charming and can match wits with the other three horseman very easily. The stunts are amazing and exciting. Michael Caine reprises his role as corrupt billionaire with the added twist of his son, Daniel Radcliffe. It seems ironically appropriate that Daniel Radcliffe is in a modern version of a magic styled movie. This movie offers impossibly intricate tricks and the four Horsemen escape in impossibly intricate Waze. He and even some questions are answered in this movie that are fun and heartwarming. I hope this is only the second in a trilogy or more of movies like this.

    Great film, better than the first!

    If you saw and enjoyed the first film. You'll love the 2nd. Everything is bigger, including the illusions and they expended the story. As you see in the box art they replaced the female horseman with a new one, long story short, she wanted out and the 'Eye' gave it to her. They picked up a new female member to balance out the group. While the film still focuses on illusions and magic while being promised real magic if they prove themselves. They do expand the story, the last film was a test and in this one they have to prove worthy. The film does have twist and turns, some that can't be guessed and recurring characters while still keeping the momentum of a chase film and being fun.

    A Great Sequel Extension

    If you were paying attention to the first move, you'll understand what unanswered questions posed in the first which forms some of the basis of the sequel. I've found that the sequel gets better the more times I watch it and watching the first then the second over time carries the continuity of the story. Lizzie Caplan was an interesting replacement for Isla Fisher - not as sexy, but different. Cross story lines and characters (including Woody playing 2 roles) perhaps may have added some complexity to the storyline, but the card stealing sequence was a gem. As well, it was nice to see Mark Ruffalo have an expanded role in magic.

    Not As Good As the First One

    If you liked Now You See Me you should like this movie. However, this isn't quite as awesome as the first film although they still got in a good twist at the end. That being said, the twist didn't catch me off guard nearly as much as the first movie. This movie also explores some backstories which was cool. I almost always dig those. All in all, this is definitely worth a watch. I would comment about how good of a 4K transfer it is but I don't have 4K Blu-Ray player yet. The regular Blu-Ray looks and sounds excellent, though.

    This will not contain spoilers. I saw this the first time in theaters and liked it. I purchased the sequel and this movie at the same time. My computer has a tendency to refuse to download UltraViolet files. I look for movies that can be added to my iTunes library. The second time I watched this movie was after I downloaded it into my iTunes library with ease. It was still good. The best part of the movie was something. I already typed no spoilers.

    This sequel was just as good, if not better than the first. It kept me guessing from the beginning to the end...even the magicians themselves were fooled by parts of the story line until the last minute. It was very intriguing and not the least bit predictable. I think one of the best parts is Mark Ruffalo's character; is he part of this crew? part of that crew? is he in it for vengeance? does he truly care about his craft? Watch and see....

    I think that "Now You See Me 2" was one of the greatest new films of all-time and it was also one of my favorite new films of all-time and a creative and original sequel to "Now You See Me". I have seen and enjoyed this film several times and I also think that "Now You See Me 2" had a lot of entertaining, exciting and enjoyable drama, action, mystery and suspense including amazing and original personal storylines.

    Had to see the 2nd movie to see if it was as good as the first one. It was great to see the returning people and the added ones too. Have both movies and watch them when I want to use my brain in a different way to be entertained, namely actually use the gray mater to figure out the mystery. The first movie is the only movie I did not figure out in the first 15 minutes. Held me to the end. Good job.

    One of our favorite movies was Now You See Me. It didn't matter what what the reviews were, we were going to get this movie to watch the sequel. It was pretty good and expounded on some of the minor story lines from first movie. We watched it 3 times the first week and about every week since. Enjoy watching this back to back with the first movie. If you liked the first movie, you will enjoy this one!

    Bigger stakes, More action, Witty Writing, Keeps you guessing till the end!! **Spoiler* Adult Daniel Radcliffe is interesting to see and especially as a villain! ** If you love a Little Bit of mystery with mystical edge that keeps you guessing what's real until the end, then this is the film to have! Cat and mouse, power vs. patience, magic vs. mental, A Good watch all around!

    Again, I do not do spoilers. I have an Apple computer that has difficulties playing UltraViolet files. Naturally, I look for movies that can be downloaded in iTunes. This is one. The first time that I saw this movie wasn't in theaters. One can watch this movie without washing the first movie; however, I recommend against that idea. The first movie helps understand this movie.

    This movie is good, but not as good as the first Now You See Me. I didn't care for Woody Harrelson's twin and Daniel Radcliffe played an odd character. I really missed Isla Fisher in this second movie, but Lizzy Caplan was great. She carried her role quite well. I'm anxious to see the next movie, Now You See Me 3, scheduled to come out in 2019. I just hate to wait!

    I like this film and what it adds to the films franchise. The cast is great and after a bit you don't mind that Isla Fisher is not in this film. Lizzie Caplan is a great addition to the cast and the movie is all out fun. If you liked the first film then you should enjoy this one as well. Of course there is a surprise ending and it is all worth it.

    Movie was good but I wasn't too impressed with the 4K quality. I do have a 4K bluray player and a 4K TV as well as the recommended 4K quality HDMI cable but I still wasn't impressed. I played a regular bluray disc on this system and the upscaling on it had better picture quality than the actual 4K movie. The movie, however was great!

    This star studded cast delivers all of the magic you'd expect in "Now You See Me 2". Cased in a collectible steel book, the sequel takes you on a quest to control all of the worlds computers as the infamous Four Horsemen set out to confiscate this powerful chip. Fast paced action & big city lights make this movie fun and visually stunning

    Who doesn't like a movie with a little magic? The first Now you See Me movie was thoroughly enjoyable and the second one continues where the first one left off and adds plenty of its own twists and turns and plenty of its own magic to go around. One of the highlights of this movie though was definitely Daniel Radcliffe as the bad guy.

    Great follow up to the first movie, Now You See Me. With many of the same characters, there are a few additions to make the movie more enjoyable; such as Daniel Radcliffe playing Michael Caine's son. Plenty of twists and turns that can leave you stunned or having to watch it again to figure out where you got lost in illusions.

    I'm not sure why people didn't like this... I thought it was a great sequel! They did a great job with the twists, yet again. Still has the same "Ocean's" (with magic) feel! If you liked the first one, you will like thus one. f you are someone who is always hyper critical of sequels, then I can't really help you lol.

    I really enjoyed the first one - you never really knew what was going to happen. Well, not as much with is one. I still enjoyed the movie and it has a cool ending - I don't expect a Now You See Me 3 - but you never know. I am glad that I own this so I can see all of those things that I missed on the Big Screen. Enjoy...
