    Now-You-See-Me-2-The-greatest-magic-trick_Watch carefully or you may is it. The con is in and the fleecers could welcome become the fleeces in Now You See Me 2.  Call this a follow-up to the first breakout movie from Eone Entertainment. Even if you have not seen the original that should not deter you from catching this new act at Cineplex Odeon cinemas around B.C.

    Played for laughs our tale revolves around the mysterious Four Horsemen. Joined by a new female entrant the troop delight in using their magic to line their own pockets. Not everyone is amused by their tactics, especially law enforcement and  the odd victim of their antics.

    Back for more merry mayhem are Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco, Mark Ruffalo and  Jesse Eisenberg. Aided and abetted by new comrade in arms Lizzy Kaplan the quintet wind up on the run as another magician of sorts tries to beat the gang at their own antics

    If you like magic and gamesmanship you may well enjoy Now You See Me 2. Lots of tricks up their sleeves will keep most folks intrigued as will the saucy appearances of acting legends Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine and Daniel Radcliffe. Flashy locations like London and Macau add to he glitz and glamour of this high tech extravaganza that is full of flashy effects and witty back and forth banter despite its farfetchedness.
