Magical mystery thriller Now You See Me receives a flood of favourable and not so favourable reviews as it is released in US movie theatres today (May 31st 2013).

With a star-studded ensemble cast led by Jesse Eisenberg, Mark Ruffalo, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, Mélanie Laurent, Morgan Freemanand Michael Caine, it's no wonder 'Now You See Me' has turned out to be a massive hit with many critics. Living up to its expectations, this Louis Leterrier directed movie has been described as 'A grandiose, far-fetched, somewhat tongue-in-cheek caper thriller' by Vulture and Television Without Pity said 'the tricks were really fantastic' and 'overall, it was an enjoyable time'.

On the other hand, many were unimpressed, with Complex stating rather bluntly, 'the illusion of its awesomeness vanishes to reveal its greatest trick yet: stealing your money' and CTV's Canada AM suggesting that one should 'wrap it in cellophane, lock it in a box and hide it under the bed'. Either way, if you like glamour, mystery and mischief then it's a great film to go and see and with such an excellent cast, just how bad can it possibly be?

Director Louis Leterriere: 'Clash Of The Titans Remake Was Famously Horrible'

Louis Leterrier

Director Louis Leterrier has lashed out at Warner Bros. executives for risking his reputation as a filmmaker by rushing to convert his Clash Of The Titans remake into an critically-panned 3D blockbuster.

Promoting his new movie Now You See Me in an interview with website The Huffington Post, Leterrier calls his 2010 movie "famously horrible", insisting movie bosses rushed to add 3D as "a gimmick to steal money from the audience."

The Transporter filmmaker claims Warner Bros. executives forced him to take the blame after the ancient Greek action epic was panned by fans and critics alike, but now he insists the finished product was not the movie he signed on to make.
