Synopsis:
Is there a secret you would kill to know? In this electrifying, suspense-packed thriller from director Christopher Nolan, Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale play magicians whose cutthroat attempts to better each other plunge them into deadly deceptions. Scarlett Johansson also stars as the stage assistant who's both a pawn and player in their rivalry. A brilliant supporting cast (including Michael Caine and David Bowie). An ingenious story. An astonishing payoff. Once you see The Prestige, you'll want to see it again. Watch closely.

The Prestige, the ultimate magic trick!? - The Prestige review by Alex D.

Spoiler Alert
21/03/2007

The Prestige tells the story of two magicians who engage in a obsession of a rivalry after an accident causes them to go their seperate ways. The movie itself started off leaving me somewhat confused. It constantly shifts between present time and various past times, telling the story. Everything clears up as you go along, as I think the director wanted it to be that way. Sorta like a real magic trick, always throwing you off to keep you guessing. I never really felt like it dragged on, it kept my attention and interest very well. I liked how the story constantly shifted between Bale and Hugh Jackman, and how they each tried to get the others secrets. It really made you think who really is the "bad guy" in all this. The acting is on point, and the ending is really a bizarre twist that I had to think about some more after the movie was over. You really have to take it from the end and put all the pieces together again to see how creative the director really was. A lot of the beginning was just foreshadowing for the end. It really shows how obsessively dedicated magicians were to their art. They were willing to take and make sacrifies for the art of the trick. Not flawless, but definitely worth seeing.

Enjoyable thriller - The Prestige review by Rubber Ducky

Spoiler Alert
08/05/2007

A story about rival magicians set in Victorian London. There are numerous plot twists and turns to keep you interested and the ending is awesome. Thoroughly enjoyable performances, especially from Jackman and Bale. Bowie plays a batty scientist well too!

Magic or sleight of hand? - The Prestige review by IB

Spoiler Alert
30/04/2008

Story moves at an acceptable pace and the principle characters are well portrayed, but in a style that makes them difficult to warm to. The rivalry between Bayle and Jackman could have been better drawn, each displays an irritating, self-centred character without humour or empathy. Caine doesn't get out of first gear, his and Johansson's talents are not really on view. Bowie's role is also slight. The denouement is flagged up well before it occurs and replaces mystery with absurdity.
