The casting of this heist picture is on the nose, as they say. Jesse Eisenberg can do that “smartest guy in the room” thing in his sleep. Morgan Freeman twinkles, and Michael CAine fumes and Mark Ruffalo ponders and Isla Fisher and Woody Harrelson (look for that cameo in the opening scene, too) do that thing they do.
Populist magician bank robbers steal from the thieves and give back to those of us robbed? By bankers? I love a good heist picture. What’s not to love?
“Now You See Me” opens May 31.
