"[A] spirited caper, which has nearly as many rug-pulls as game movie stars." -- Grade: B
Chicago Sun-Times - 05/31/2013 3 stars out of 4 -- "[A] razzle-dazzle fantasy about a team of bank-robbing illusionists. It?s slick, deliberately silly, and sprinkled with visual confetti -- Steadicam spins, lens flares, CGI trick shots."
Empire - 06/28/2013 3 stars out of 5 -- "Magicians as criminals is a marvelous conceit and Louis Leterrier gets a great deal of entertainment out of it..."
Total Film - 07/01/2013 3 stars out of 5 -- "Director Louis Leterrier certainly knows how to make a film zoom..."
A team of talented illusionists called "The Four Horsemen" (played by Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, and Dave Franco) are investigated by a resolute FBI agent (Mark Ruffalo) following a series of brazen heists that leave their audiences swimming in cash while draining the bulging bank accounts of unscrupulous business leaders. Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, and Mélanie Laurent co-star in this sleight-of-hand thriller directed by CLASH OF THE TITANS' Louis Leterrier.
