Stars: Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman, Scarlett Johansson, Michael Caine
Two magicians, Robert Angier (Hugh Jackman) and Alfred Borden (Christian Bale) are obsessed with creating the best magic tricks the world has ever seen. They start out operating as one team, before their intense rivalry to be the best drives them apart
to two separate solo magician careers.
Alfred Borden sacrifices the life of Robert Angier’s wife by attempting his own variation of a knot in one of their magic tricks. This divides the two budding magicians and the two men each carry on their separate careers in the hopes of becoming the greatest illusionist of all time, each constantly sabotaging each other’s magic shows.
They perform tricks that have never been seen before as they persevere to out-compete one another. But this isn’t enough for either man, leading them to create a trick so magical that neither of them could ever have thought was possible.
Can i watch this film with family?
Yes, this is 100% fine to watch with family. Plus it’s magic so all the family fun.
Is it a comedy or ‘silly’ magic film?
Hell no! This is a dark and serious magic film, one that is absolutely amazing (i would’ve said magical but that’s far too cheesy).
