Not So Magical

17 Aug

I won’t spend much time writing about The Illusionist because I don’t expect it to stay around in theaters all that long anyway.

Basically, despite a typically good performance by Paul Giamatti and a typically intense one by Ed Norton — and a surprisingly decent one by Jessica Biel — I found the movie lacking in (please excuse the obvious pun) magic.

Hopefully The Prestige, another movie about magicians, will be more enjoyable. It certainly looks better.

In the meantime, The Illusionist gets a B- from me.
