The Prestige

This is the movie I thought I was seeing when I saw The Illusionist. Even though they both use magic as a plot instrument, the movies are different. The Prestige is more of a thriller/love story where as The Illusionist is more of a love story with a few thrilling elements in it. You can definitly tell that The Prestige was directed by Christopher Nolan, the guy who did Momento. He also did Batman Begins, but Momento and The Prestige are nothing like it.

Anyway, the movie has some violence in it, but nothing too over the top. The cast is top notch. Christian Bale, Hugh Jackman and Michael Cane all do great jobs in their respective parts. The chemistry between Bale and Cane on screen is great because of their work on Batman Begins, but its short due to the plot. Jackman is able to develop some of that chemistry with Cane and does a great job as well. Scarlett Jo looks FANTASTIC in this movie and offers up a great supporting role. Her role is small, but it is important and she is a great actress. And really hot to boot.

The plot twist at the end is pretty good. Some people may see it coming and its nothing too spectacular, but if you get absorbed in the movie like I did, it will be a pretty good twist for you.

Over all its a 3 out of 4 star movie. Great flick with a great plot and great acting. Highly recommended.

I have to admit, BDiddy's reviews are usually right on the money. The dude knows his $hit about actors / directors, etc.

The only suggestion of his that sucked was Jawbreaker. It was one of the worst movies I've seen. The only way I can describe this movie is "fuct up." However, I did watch it all the way through for some reason. My girlfriend on the other hand, got up and left the house. When she returned, she was "disappointed in me" that I watched the rest of the filthy movie.

How can I recommend Jawbreaker? Ive never seen it, except parts of it on USA and even then I couldnt bear to watch it.

Seriously, Ive never reccomended that movie. Or I did in jest and you took it seriously.

But Ive never even seen the movie.

I just saw this movie lastnight with a buddy

The twist at the end caught me by surprise.. We just looked at each other and went "holy ****." The end up the moving just kept topping itself with bizarre more and more stuff. Anyway I enjoyed the movie
