Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horseman, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts agents Dylan Rhodes of the FBI and Alma Vargas of Interpol on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves difficult to solve even with the insights of the professional illusion exposer, Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems with illusions, dark secrets and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.

A few role choices are questionable in this film. Isla Fisher wasn't that good in this. Another fine example of an actress who gets a role for her beauty and not her acting ability. I don't think this role was good enough for Morgan Freeman. Freeman is too big of an actor to take a role where he isn't a main character. The storyline of this film was a little lame but it was decent where they went with it for what they had. An average movie that wasn't very suspenseful. 5/10
Not even for one second can you even come close to predicting the next stage of the plot. Although I did know the next line to be spoken a few times. There are so many twists you will get a sore neck! HA! The acting is good, the story is awesome and the movie will keep you interested throughout. I was not expecting much from this one and was pleasantly surprised if not shocked at the depth of the writing that took place to make it. The characters are likable and well thought out.

The world's greatest illusionists - "The Four Horsemen" - pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances. The super-team of illusionists shower the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of an elite FBI squad in a game of cat-and-mouse.
