I hope I put it in the right genre field if not ... could you move it, please? (:
So ... I am kinda obsessed with Christian Bale at the moment and I like saw this dvd in the store and bought it. The back text sounded kinda nice and I thought if the movie were shit at least I could look at Christian. Lol ^__^
But actually the movie is kinda fine. Sometimes you have to remember in which time you are cause they like put the past INTO the past so that you have past-past, past and present. Lol But it sounds more complicated than it really is. It's easy to understand and after I watched it the second time yesterday I have to admit: I love this movie!
And without saying to much now then end is really what you don't expect. I mean in the last few minutes I was thinking "Wth. THIS trick?!" But in the end I was wrong and this end I wasn't expecting. And I couldn't wish for a better end.
What I have to say at last is: I was never really interested in magicians and I guess I'll never be and if that fits for you watch the movie anyways! You won't regret it.
Or is anybody here who watched the movie already? And if so ... what do you think about it?
