The Illusionist (2006), Neil Burger, B+

Jordan | Jordan Hoffman's Movie Journal | Friday, June 22nd, 2007


I really enjoyed this movie. It is a “high B+” if that makes any sense. The photography, sets & art direction are astounding. Paul Giamatti is magnificent, Edward Norton is, as always, terrific and Rufus Sewell does a nice Joaqin Phoenix from “Gladiator.” (Correct me if I am wrong, but Jessica Biel is a little bit awful. Like, “I am watching a high school play” awful. Still, there isn’t much for her to do other than look pretty so it isn’t that big of a distraction.) The movie is predictable, though, and there’re one or two things that aren’t explained. . .but, still, this is a great old fashioned Hollywood movie that is quite enjoyable.

  1. I’ve got to strongly disagree with you on this one. What makes this plot any more different than an average episode of the Twilight Zone? I agree that Paul Giamatti was great but isn’t this also a tired love story that’s been used a hundred times?
