Fun movie with some great twists and turns. Dylan Rhodes (Ruffalo) winds up chasing a group of magicians named “The Four Horsemen”. These magicians appear to be committing major robberies during their acts on stage. Their first trick was to rob a bank in France while doing a show in North America, which brings an investigator (Laurent) from Interpol onto the case. There is an elaborate and sometimes confusing story, but Louis Leterrier (director) brings it all together in the end. There is plenty of misdirection and special effects dressed up to look like magic, but none the less I enjoyed it.
