You are never bored out of your skull in the film--in part because of the always watchable Jesse Eisenberg--but you are never really that interested either. None of the other actors are horrible but no one else shines. There is something off about Mark Ruffalo's performance that is difficult to place, however. But it is hard to level a finger at an actor for the film's failure or even the director. This is writing problem. It is just so cheap and lazy.
If this is a mediocre, forgettable movie, it is a really bad caper movie. The set up is lame, the execution is lame and none of it is remotely believable. A movie about magic tricks that tosses in CGI to make the tricks work?
The film's press compares it to Ocean's Eleven. It isn't even half as good as Ocean's Thirteen. Don't worry though, if you do go to see this? You will forget it within an hour after the credits roll.
