Movie Review: I thought this movie was really interesting and thrilling, with great intensity and trickery. The conflict and tension between Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale’s characters, were very riveting, not only a battle for the top magician performer, but all out war on a psychological and physical level, slowly spiraling into utter chaos. However, even with the amusement from the unthinkable magic acts and great acting performances, I didn’t really felt much character depth, that made me feel or care about any of the characters, I simply just knew what they wanted, but I wasn’t so sure what is the true meaning behind it all. Still indeed, this story has one of the biggest discoveries for me, having an amazing twist and turn to justify the ambiguity of the film.
