Hi,hi,hi peeps from the internet!
I’m a movie lover, watching new ones, discovering some unknown ones. Unknown movies are probably the best, not many people know about them, yet they are awesome. As I live in Belgium, they are many movies that are known in the US and unknown here. Movies like Palo Alto, Stuck In Love, Behaving Badly and the list goes on and on. I discover those movies thanks to trailers on youtube, or on Netflix.
But today I’m not going to talk about an unknown movie, not even a “not famous but people know about it” one. It’s about a well-known one, that has been promoted worldwide. It’s about Now You See Me II -if you couldn’t tell by the title obviously-. I went to the movies probably 2days ago with one of my friends to watch actually Suicide Squad -I was planning on watching NYSMII with my mom tbh- but there was no place left for the movie, so we switched plans and we watched NYSMII. LET ME TELL YOU THIS, IT’S EVEN BIGGER AND GREATER THAN THE FIRST ONE.
Let’s talk about what happens in the first one, basically it pits an elite FBI squad in a game of cat and mouse against “The Four Horsemen”, a super-team of the world’s greatest illusionists. “The Four Horsemen” pull off a series of daring heists against corrupt business leaders during their performances, showering the stolen profits on their audiences while staying one step ahead of the law. *SPOILER ALERT* We realize it’s the FBI agent Dylan Rhodes -aka Shrike, son of Lionel Shrike a great illusionist who died during a trick, well allegedly died because we never found a body nor what he use to do the trick- who is the inside man.
So back to the second movie, after a year of hiding in the shadows, the horsemen are back and are joined by a female magician named Lula, for a comeback performance in hopes of exposing the unethical practices of a tech magnate. Things are going well when suddenly someone hijacks the whole thing and exposes their secrets like Jack Wilder’s fake death and that Dylan is their leader. They run and suddenly find themselves in Macau, the man behind their vanishing act is none other than Walter Mabry, a tech prodigy who threatens the Horsemen into pulling off their most impossible heist yet. Lula, Jack and Merrit refuse to do it but Daniel Atlas who is fed up of Dylan being in charge says they’ll do it. Meanwhile Rhodes is arrested by his boss but he escapes and he gets a call from Thaddeus Bradley, the man he blames for his father’s death, and sent him to prison. Bradley tells Dylan he can help him find the Horsemen but he needs to get him out of prison. Their only hope is to perform one last unprecedented stunt to clear their names and reveal the mastermind behind it all.
Honestly I loved it from start to end. I just loooove magic haha. It’s definitely a movie you should add to your “Watch Next” list. You won’t regret it.
Till next time,
