FBI agents track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances and reward their audiences with the money.

Trading in their guns and bats for magic cards and wands, Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland) and Woody Harrelson (Zombieland too) try their hand at some illusions.  I’ll be honest, this movie shows a lot of promises with its star-studded cast and thrilling plot line.  However, I can’t shake the feeling of dismay once realizing Louis Leterrier (Transporter 2, The Incredible Hulk, Clash of the Titans) is directing.  Funny how the previous director of the hulk is now in control of the current actor playing Bruce Banner, Mark Ruffalo.  Of course Jesse Eisenberg trade mark snarky performance from The Social Network seems to have translated from CEO of a Corporation to a magician quite well.  It warms my heart a little.  I don’t know if the film will be successful or not, but with Mr. Titty Sprinkles himself (Morgan Freeman) doing the narration, how bad can it be?  If you would like to learn more about Titty Sprinkles, just watch the video below.
