The more you think you see, the less you'll actually notice
The exposition of the characters starts right away from the first frame and we get to know all the four characters within the first few minutes of the movie. There is no particular motive or purpose given to any character and the story is progressed scene by scene in an engrossing manner. There are plenty of twists weaved and unravelled along the way but the major ones are saved for the denouement.
Rule #1 of magic, always be the smartest guy in the room.
Moreover, the movie is filled with a stellar cast which includes - Morgan Freeman, Michael Caine, Mark Ruffalo, Jesse Eisenberg, and many more stars which makes the movie colourful and engaging to watch. Every actor has gelled well into their roles and made the movie believable. Interesting thing I observed was that no actor was underplayed.
Nothing's ever locked
Apparently, there are loop holes in the screenplay which is obvious for a commercial movie. But I am sure the viewers would not dwell on these loop holes because of the racy screenplay. The climax was indeed histrionic but I never minded it. The movie had delivered loads of entertainment already even before the ending.
I can do that trick 52 ways.
Verdict: Here's Your Weekend Blockbuster Movie!
