It's been awhile since I've seen it but if I remember correctly they establish early on during Angier's youth that the movie is a fantasy. Priest's novel is a fairly famous fantasy (slipstream) novel. The movie isn't exact but pretty close (I read it after the fact). In the movie they cut out the multi-generation aspect of the feud and the reason why Borden had a twin. Anyway, shame you didn't like it. I like fantasy and thought this was a good one.
the problem i had is that the whole thing seemed very realistic up until that point... basically if you removed that one aspect of the movie, its pretty believable. it really just seemed like they overdid it quite a bit just to get shock value when it was really unnecessary for the movie to be good. its not that i don't like fantasy movies, i just don't how they incorporated it into this movie
I could be wrong since I haven't watched it in a while but wasn't the Tesla storyline an integral part of the movie?
The only thing that I would change about the movie is to show some boobies. I'm not sure why Nolan never allows his actresses to show their boobies. I know they all want to.
