A terrific cast, lots of quick-witted lines, quite a few twists and turns and a spectacular presentation make this crime caper about a bunch of magicians and cops a fairly enjoyable experience. If you sit and pick for loopholes you may find a few and the too many goings-on may confuse you a bit, but I’d rather you sit back and enjoy the ride, like you would a spectacular magic show. Good acting, good humor and good visuals trump a slightly messy second half screenplay. Abracadabra!
