Bryan Lienesch72 - As with the first, 'Now You See Me 2', like a magician, wows you with flash and pizzazz. It all makes for an exciting spectacle. But when you peek behind the curtains, you realize there really isn't much to it.
Le Anne of Tinsel And Tine56.6 - The plot involving tech weasel (Walter Mabry/Daniel Radcliffe) is a little hard to keep straight and Woody Harrelson playing his evil twin is just dumb, but otherwise Director Jon M. Chu, (Step Up movies) has given us a fun summer flick. The first movie had a bit more pizzazz and showmanship - I'd classify it as a con artist movie, those tend to center on the special qualities of the characters. "Now you See Me 2" is more a heist movie, which centers on plans and execution. Whether you'll enjoy this one kinda depends on your genre preference.

Sober Film Critic James Brown43 - Nowhere near as entertaining as the original, Now You See Me 2 is derivative of its predecessor in every way.

Minnesota Man40 - Can we make this franchise disappear...or at least Jesse Eisenberg?
