The Illusionist was really about a lost and found love between Eisenheim (Edward Norton) and Sophie von Teschen (Jessica Biel). But it is far from a typical `chick flick` love story. A composition of a great cast, amazing digital effects, and needless to say magical "illusions" to blow your mind, makes this movie more than worth a theatre screening.
Fabulously acted. Great costuming. Norton and Giamatti are spectacular.
Best movie I have seen in a long time. Even my bf loved it! It was great from start to finish!
Ed Norton was amazing! Loved the story line and the ending was the best!!!
Wow, that really sucked. So delicious, so cold.
We truly enjoyed this flick!
Over all well done, very touching.
I didn`t look at my watch - that almost never happens. Truly enjoyed the whole movie, from beginning to end.
Great movie, terrific acting from Norton, and Sideways hero, Paul Giancotti(?) wins my vote for Best Supporting Actor once again. Wonderful period piece without being over the top in areas of sets, costumes and melodrama. See it soon!
Ed Norton is an amazing actor. A really good movie with a really good twist in the end. Go see it!
one of the best movies ever!
This movie was amaaaazing!!!!!!!
Disappointing, I expected more from this cast.
Will a real Illusionist make this terrible movie disapear?
Great movie.....go and see it. The box office numbers are low for this movie, I think it is worth seeing in the theatre, better than some of the other crap out there right now....
I went in with high expectations but I must admit I was a little disappointed. Granted the performances were great, but I didn`t feel that there were a lot of surprises - especially at the end. Totally saw it coming. For me the movie dragged on a bit (or maybe it was the guy snoring in the seat behind me ...). 3/5
this move was unreal
The movie was amazing it was like unusual suspect. Amazing simply amazing story line. Edward Norton, gets better and better.
Absolutely fabulous. Well written, acted and filmed. There is real chemistry between the actors. An absolute must see
Excellent Movie!!!! Highly Recommend! The acting was excellent and it was very entertaining with many twists. A must see!!
great movie loved it
crappy movie i felt ripped off i want my money back
Absolutely worth watching. You will be taken away by Ed Norton`s performance as he plays his character with total believability. As the trailer says "dont give away the secret", it has its twists and turns in the most unexpected places yet proves to be worth upholding our beliefs in "illusions". Great for all ages! I would recommend to anyone wanting to get away from typical hollywood drama.
It was amazing, Edward Norton was absolutly breathtakingly georgeous!! was very well done and I`d have to say that it was the best movie I have seen in a long long time and am going to back and see it a second time!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
It was a good movie. Nice twists that I dont think of until the end. Acting was good but not the best work of the the actors.
Amazing amazing amazing! No joke. This movie has great dialogue, plot, "illusions", etc. This is a must see. Edward Norton is wonderful in this (his intense presence says it all). This is definitely a DVD collection. Go see it. Guaranteed, you will not feel you wasted your time watching this flick.
this was a very well done movie. it was a believable representation of something unreal... a feat few movies have been able to accomplish lateley. well done, two thumbs up.
Very Impressed with this movie. Wasn`t expecting much since I havn`t heard all that much about it, but certainly was well worth the price of an admission ticket to a theater. Acting was very good, plot was well thought out and the ending (although a bit predictable) was quite good. Definately recommend this movie.
Best movie I have seen in a long long time! Fantastic!!
Very good Movie. I give it TWO THUMBS way up. I especially liked the surprize ending.
Went to this flick with my wife and sixteen year old son. All enjoyed it. Keeps you thinking and no low points.
Great movie for those who enjoy a well laid out plot, excellent performances, and attention to detail. Edward Norton plays a highly credible magician, with training and practice very evident in his smaller feats of legerdemain. If you prefer fast paced action movies, go watch a Bond flick.
very good, one of the best so far!!
Great Movie!!! The settings/costumes were really awesome. It put you back to that that era. It was a great story too. Gotta see it. 4/5
This movie is by far one of the best in a long, long time. Ed norton is at his best, and what can you say about Paul other than amazing. The movie is a little slow at the begining but makes up for it at the end. five out of five in my books.
Loved it. Best movie I`ve seen this summer
I thought it was a great movie .The best we have seen for quite some time.
I loved this movie!!! It`s not one that I would`ve picked to watched but I am glad that my friend chose it for us to watch! It was amazing! I wasn`t expecting to love it, but I did! Also great for "Magic" enthusiasts!
Definitely a movie for adults. Slow paced, great performances ....about time Ms. Biehl. Great twist at the end...I knew there was something in the offing but didn`t know what. Great flic for the over 35 crowd.
It was amazing! I recommend you see it in theatres instead of renting though because i think its better on the big screen.
BORING!!!!!, ed norton acts great as usual, but the movie was boring, and predictable... wasnt pleased 2stars
Great story , I think I just expected a bit more from Edward Norton .
wow this movie was amazingg. it should definitley be nominated for an oscar. edward norton was amazing as usual! the ending was awesome!five stars!
One of the best movies this summer. The gorgeous quality of the costumes, lighting and breathtaking cinematography lend themselves to the authenticity of the period. With no expectations other than an admiration for Giamati (sp?) and Norton`s body of work, we were more than pleased by our choice and would recommend this highly to those who appreciate an excellent European-style mystery. I imagine those disappointed by the special affects would be pleased by another go in the "Caribbean"
Awesome, awesome, awesome!!!
Awesome film. One of the best of the year. The story is very very clever, that acting is superb, and the special effects are great. Wow . . . what a great movie.
I found this movie very enjoyable. Edward Norton rocks as always.
