From what I heard I was expecting a much better movie. While well acted the characters are one-dimensional stereotypes, and for all its plot twists and turns the ending was predictable. Standard Hollywood fare.
Tributefan: Nice movie a good twist at the end. Makes you wonder more. One of the best illusion movies since the prestige. 3.5 / 5 stars
It kept me on the edge of my seat. Wonderful movie!!!
i loved it. Absolutely loved it. Couldn`t have been better. Everything fit together so well in the end. It was great. I loved it
disappointing. had nice elements. slow and obvious.
This was a terrible movie. The only good part was the ending but even that was mediocre. Even Ed Norton lacked his usual intensity. There was no chemistry between him and Biel. Not even a rental - almost down right boring. Don`t waste your time.
Absolutley amazing movie, loved every minute of it
very good movie, beautiful love story!
Great movie! Never a dull moment. Way better than the Prestige
very good movie. Great performances - Nortin and Giammatti have great chemistry together - the movie is very entertaining.
Beautifully filmed with great performances by all.
This is one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It has mystery, romance, suspense, and Intelligence ...... Loved it! Purchased it! Will watch it again and again.
best !!!love story
Refreshing and very entertaining.... 4 ****`s
I really, really enjoyed this movie. I like the time frame it was set in. Edward Norton looked quite menacing and sinister at times.Excellent casting also. I will buy thid dvd.
An awesome movie
great storyline and cast...tops!
No special effects were really necessary, as Edward Norton`s eyes were mesmerizing, and Paul Giamatti transforms himself from his usual lovable self, into a forbidding, cruel-eyed being with dubious intentions. Beautiful.
I wish it made more money cuz it was that great.. very underated much better than the prestige .. great love story
Paul Giamatti and Edward Norton won awards for this movie??! Well, DUH!!!!!!! This movie is spectacular! The illusionist and the chief inspector are the greatest in this film! They did the beginning especially well. The relationship between Edward and Sophie is also really cute. Go see this movie before it stops playing! 5 stars!
Better than Prestige. The illusionist was more believable because it could be done! Awesome movie! 5 stars.
Great cast Great screen play.
Loved the movie, loved the story. Highly recommended.
Fantastic movie - excellent cast. I was truly entertained!
This movie was absolutly fantastic! I went thinking it was the other movie "the prestige" but this movie was just amaing, made you think for sure!! It was great and definsatly will rent it when it comes out to video!!
It was brillant!! truely worth watching!!! Went to see The Grudge 2 with friend and was very disappointed. then we saw the illusionist and i`m telling you now it`s one of the greatest movies i`ve seen this year!!! go watch it!!
Only one word can describe this movie - BLAH
What a relaxing and intriguing movie! Jessica Biel is so beautiful... The plot is mysterious and keeps you on the edge throughout the movie. The main characters have presence. WELL DONE!!!

Great movie, really enjoyed it
i really really enjoyed the movie. it left a huge impression on me, left me still thinking about it days later~~ very entertaining and great twist!! recommended to all who`s interested in magic tricks!!
The Illusionist, Was great put together. For the writers and film artist the put this movie together more than a 2 thumbs up.
I can see why they didn`t spend a lot of money on advertising this film, as anyone who sees it will definetly reccomend it to their friends.......amazing film, topnotch.
AMAZING movie. TRULY MAGICAL. HUGELY UNDER-RATED.
This is the first movie I believe deserves a really good review. It is one of the best movies I have ever watched. My perception on the ending was totally wrong which makes this movie a 5/5. Majority of the movies are predictable.
I loved and adored this movie! It was very, VERY well done. I could not imagin how these things were done... And apparently a large sum of the "tricks" were actually performed during filming, not all done by computer animation. The ending, Oh the ending... Spectacular, Fantastic, Skillful, and Divine! The Illusionist is defenently a film to be added to the home collection when it comes out onto DVD/VHS.
Fantastic movie. Beautifully done.
love, mystery, magic and totally unexpected twists and turns! definately worth seeing!
Well thought out movie that does the short story justice.
I would like to see it again and again.
A smooth cultivation of script, music, and rich music - LOVED it!
I love Edward Norton but this movie was just Ok for me. It was entertaining but I found it extremely predictable so that was unfortunate. Still see it if you are a fan of Edward Norton`s though...you`ll still be entertained.
it was good, i would say go see it, not super smart but not stupid either. Beil is really good in it!
it was an alright movie, you can basically watch the beginning of the movie and you`ll understand the ending, no need for the rising action. the tricks were pretty cool
