I fell asleep before "Now You See Me" ended, and I don't feel at all bad about it. The previews made this movie look like something I actually wanted to watch, and the scariest thing about this movie is that I almost purchased it at Walmart for 18 bucks. It's rare that I want to see mainstream movies because of their previews, and I thought I wanted to see this.
Luckily, I downloaded it instead of buying it, so the only thing lost was the time I waited for it to download. I don't consider watching it a waste of time, because it put me into a nice deep sleep, and who doesn't like a good rest?
Jesse Eisenberg was the worst part of the movie for me. He looked nervous, and he was supposed to appear confident. He also played the same character he played in Social Network. I felt like I was watching Mark Zuckerberg the magician. Sorry, illusionist. Apparently that's how it's going to be from now on: Jesse Eisenberg as Mark Zuckerberg in whatever movies he's in. I'm surprised Morgan Freeman was in it. There was nothing else remarkable about the film except how boring it was. Womp womp. Two thumbs down.
