The magicians are back* and up to their usual tricks, but the FBI is on their tail, as is Walter Mabry.** There are complicating factors, and tricks and double crosses and it all holds together well if you don’t think too deeply about it. With this many good actors, the result is going to be a solid film, which this was.
Cost: free from library
Where watched: at home with Matt after moving three tons of flagstone.
*Though we’ve swapped out Isla Fisher for Lizzy Caplan
**There is an internal squeal of glee when Daniel Radcliffe appears first as a character; I enjoy him as an adult actor.

We caught some of this movie on our trip. Just a few minutes when they were “tossing” the card around and hiding it so they could go through a detector. It was an odd place to jump into the action because it seemed so fake (though it would have regardless – but we would have been sold/bought in to the lie a lot earlier).
That was a fun scene, but I can see how if you started there, it might not exactly work.
