Basically Ocean's Eleven for magic nerds, this film tries to mystify you with its cinematic chicanery while at the same time constantly remind you that you're not paying attention to what's truly going down. Directed by action-loving Frenchman Louis Letterier (Clash of the Titans) and written by several screenwriters who must think we're all idiots, the movie takes such relentless, maddening leaps in logic and plausibility—so this foursome executes a meticulously planned, multi-layered caper, with hardly any money or manpower and zero chance of casualties, FOR SOMEONE THEY'VE NEVER MET?!—it ends up being ludicrously far-fetched even by summer-movie standards.
