In Theaters: Now You See Me

It's one thing when a movie is just bad, but it's another when a movie is rather enjoyable, but finds a way to squander all those good feelings. Now You See Me is mostly a great summer movie. The plot is a little thin, and they opt for more special effects than you'd expect, but it's got a great pace to the action, and the actors are highly compelling. Jesse Eisenberg may not have great range, but he does what he does well. And I am now, formally, a Woody Harrelson fan. Right up to the end, it's a great movie, and one I'd have recommended to pretty much anyone looking for a summer action thriller. But then, dude, I don't know. They manage to completely blow the ending, and in a way that would have needed a completely different ending written. It wouldn't have been tough, either, but yeah. Sours the whole process. Catch it on cable some night when you don't really care what you're watching.
