The fabulous Four Horsemen — Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Lizzy Caplan and the charming Dave Franco — return in the thrilling caper, elevating the limits of stage illusion in the film, which promises a showdown between the Four Horsemen and a dangerous tech genius as a decidedly less powerful magician.
A synopsis of “Now You See Me 2”, which stars actor Morgan Freeman in a key role, reads: A year after outwitting the FBI and winning the public’s adulation with their Robin Hood-style magic spectacles, the famous illusionists resurface for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of the tech magnate.
Revealing the man behind their vanishing act who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet, the horsemen are back with a bang. Raising the bar with the first film, the sequel stars everyone’s favourite star kid Daniel Radcliffe as a ruthless tech tycoon. Of course, we also see a lot of visual flourishes thanks to the film’s magic-fuelled heist set-pieces.”
