Loved it. Simple as, rent it! Christian Bale is a work of art in this film (but then again when

is he not).

A nice drama / fantasy story set in the era of harry houdini when magic shows had real glamour.

- if you like a movie with a twist this is a good one!

A bit predictable for my liking. A movie I found I would have to be in the mood for. Couldn't really engage with it and turned it off after watching more than half of it....Hugh Jackman acts wonderfully... Read more

Excellent production values but we didn't need the love interest.

Very absorbing movie that takes you into the plot and holds you throughout. Well worth the watch.

We missed this movie on the big screen so have been waiting for it to become available on DVD and it was well worth the wait. Hugh Jackman rocks.

I think it is a movie you either like or not. The plot was ok but small things got me confused sometimes. It got explained with the twist at the end. Still the movie was not my cup of tea.

A really good yarn with lots of twists and turns, my wife thought it was ok a 4 I gave 9-10 hence 3 stars. I like the story a lot has it made me think that sometimes life can be over complicated for those that want to make it that way.
