I wanted to see something else but I lost out and now I'm glad I did. I read some negative reviews which center around how obvious the movie is. The movie is fairly obvious especially since I think us modern audiences have been trained to unravel these types of flicks fairly quick. Still it's a blast getting there. I thought the atmosphere and the acting by Norton and Giamatti was awesome.
I agree. This movie wasn't outstanding, but it stood out during a time of constantly subpar movies (or would that be, a time when the par for a movie had reached a new low
). My wife and I still debate which one we liked better: The Illusionist or The Prestige.
