THE NO, REALLY, REALLY, SERIOUSLY THIS WAS THE WORST SEQUEL OF 2016 AWARD
Oh “Now You See Me 2.”
What the hell. The first film’s premise was dubious at best but I rolled with it because the special effects were fun and magicians on a heist seemed at least like an attempt to be original.
But really, the first film was a one and done. The sequel might have worked had they not just recycled the villain from the first one. The effects are still there, but…meh.
File under: Now you see me fall asleep.
Hollywood just made two hours of my life disappear.
If you don’t want SPOILERS to appear, look away.
BQB here with a review of Now You See Me 2.
Some critics made fun of it but I actually liked the first Now You See Me.
Sure, the plot, the “magic” and everything that happened in the movie was highly unlikely…but in a time of rebooted reboots of sequels to reboots, IT WAS *GASP* AN ORIGINAL IDEA!
If you missed the first one, check it out. Basically, a group of magicians (the Vegas performer kind of magicians, not to be confused with pointy hat wearing wizards) called “the Four Horsemen” use their magic skills in Robin Hood style, robbing from a corrupt/rich insurance company tycoon played by Michael Caine and giving to the poor.
So I was up for a second one and…meh.
Yeah. I’m sorry but “meh.”
