No, not as good as the first one. The curse of the sequel I suppose. Still a great movie to watch but more so if you've already watched the first movie. This one is heavier on twisted plot twists with a twist but WAY lower on magic. Was a bit disappointed in the lack of cool magic. The first one nailed that. One thing I love about these movies is that no one gets their head blown off and blood isn't being spattered all over the camera. I truly fear for a world where you can't see a person naked but you can blow their guts all over the wall and no one complains. Worth a watch and no where near as bad as some other movies have done with sequels.
I was really excited to watch this movie, especially after how good the first one was. I felt like with the first movie the "magic" was a lot more intricate and thought through than it was for this movie. For the second movie, you could call what was going to happen for just about every situation which was not the case for the first movie. It was ok, but given how good the first movie was, I expected a lot more here than what was delivered.
If you are a fan of the first "Now You See Me" film, you will really enjoy this follow-up. It is definitely a movie where you should have seen the first one to follow and properly understand the characters.
Picking up where the first film left off, the Horsemen are in hiding, but emerge with a new plan. Things are not as they seem, of course, and the plot takes off from there.
The cast is bigger, but the acting is great. I was skeptical with the loss of Isla Fisher, but Lizzy Caplan brings her own character into the story, and she is a welcome addition. I didn't feel like she was just a replacement for the female lead, but a very likable and important part of the team in her own right. Daniel Radcliff brings his own new character into play and performs the heck out of it.
The effects are spectacular, and the twists are impressive, as you would expect.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED, but only if you've seen the first.
