The Illusionist- movie review



I'm a real sucker for a love story, and this is nothing if not that. Add intrigue, mystery, suspense, and just plain confusion and you've got a winning story. The sets, costumes, and effects were pleasing to the eye. jc felt that it was pretty slow in the middle, but I saw no such lack. The story leaves enough ambiguity at the end for the viewer to believe what they wish, and spend a little extra time wondering about it- maybe even watch it again....

fish and I really enjoyed this movie too. It almost leaves you feeling bad for the prince - but not quite.

When Mr. Gills put it on Netflix and it arrived I kind of rolled my eyes. Magic... Harry Potter... just not my thing. Totally his though! And, as it turns out I LOVED that movie. I'm a sucker for a good love story and that one was magical.
