    The heists are bigger, the illusions are flashier, and the pace is quicker. Even the cast is livelier and more fun. Perhaps best of all, the movie captures the first film’s twisty ability to twirl an audience around, so you’re never entirely sure what’s happened until everything is explained.

  • Owen Gleiberman

    Now You See Me 2 is more like a giddy piece of cheese from the ’80s, a chance to spend two more hours with characters we like, doing variations on the things that made us like them in the first place. The revisit, in this case, is well-earned.

    Variety Full Review
  • Dave White

    Director Jon M. Chu has a lighter touch than “Now You See Me” director Louis Leterrier. The latter’s “Transporter” pedigree made sure there was plenty of rugged action, but Chu’s résumé boasts “Jem and the Holograms,” “G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” and more than one film in the “Step Up” franchise. The man knows his cartoons, and that’s a good thing.

  • Calvin Wilson

    Working from a screenplay by Ed Solomon, director Jon M. Chu is more craftsman than poet, but the charismatic ensemble cast engages in the trickery with style.

    St. Louis Post-Dispatch Full Review
  • Ignatiy Vishnevetsky

    Now You See Me 2 gets giddy on its own unreality. That sense of freewheeling excess extends from the chip heist — set in a metal-free clean room — to the nonstop contrivances and coincidences to the cast.

    The A.V. Club Full Review
  • Leah Greenblatt

    Jon M. Chu (several Step Up movies) has taken over directing duties from Louis Leterrier, and he has a lighter, goofier touch. He seems to get that the silliness is baked in.

  • Brad Wheeler

    In real life, of course, nobody can be hypnotized against their will. To be mesmerized is to willingly succumb. Just keep that in mind when you head off to see something like Now You See Me 2.

    The Globe and Mail (Toronto) Full Review
  • Steven Rea

    It's the magic of movies, not a movie that comes close to achieving real magic.

    Philadelphia Inquirer Full Review
  • Mark Feeney

    “2” is as flashy and splashy as the original. Both also register right up there on the implausibility scale — that’s like the Richter scale, only with head scratching — but “2” has a lighter touch and more interesting settings. Macau and London, here we come.

    Boston Globe Full Review
  • Michael O'Sullivan

    The film is, at times, almost sinfully fun, assuming you have a taste for self-indulgently logic-free hedonism.

    Washington Post Full Review
  • Mike Scott

    Here's a movie that is far from perfect, far from seamless and far from unassailable. But it manages to be a fun diversion anyway -- and one that will likely leave audiences hungry for more.

    New Orleans Times-Picayune Full Review
  • James Berardinelli

    This time around, however, the magic has fizzled. Based solely on merit, Now You See Me 2 is a sequel that should never have been made.

    ReelViews Full Review
  • Matt Zoller Seitz

    There's not much awe showcased here. The film is mainly horseplay, wasted motion, and talk, talk, talk, with a few good action scenes. Full Review
  • Moira Macdonald

    Try to remember this movie, a few days after seeing it, and you’ll find that — like magic — it’s disappeared.

    The Seattle Times Full Review
  • Clint Worthington

    There are some marginal but still noticeable stylistic improvements in the sequel. John M. Chu (a veteran of music videos and Justin Bieber: Never Say Never) brings a peppy energy that Louis Leterrier’s first film lacked, especially when showing off the flashy spectacle of the Horsemen’s almost-superheroic magic abilities.

    Consequence of Sound Full Review
  • David Lewis

    Your enjoyment of the movie will depend on whether you can suspend your disbelief — and confusion — and let the magic of misdirection wash over you.

    San Francisco Chronicle Full Review
  • Jeannette Catsoulis

    Everything is supersized and preposterous, but Mr. Chu, with two films in the “Step Up” franchise under his belt, is undaunted by crowds and confusion.

    The New York Times Full Review
  • Sara Stewart

    Thaddeus Bradley, narrating in tedious metaphors about how “there’s always more than what’s on the surface.” That’s one claim this shallow sequel simply can’t back up.

    New York Post Full Review
  • Michael Phillips

    Now You See Me 2 is more fun than "Now You See Me," which says something, I guess. It fits snugly in the long list of easygoing nothings, the narrative equivalent of a Fruit Roll-Up, designed to be forgotten in as many minutes as they took to watch.

    Chicago Tribune Full Review
  • Peter Travers

    If you fell for the 2013 original — and surprisingly, many did — then Now You See Me 2 has got your number. For the rest of us, however, this longer, louder sequel adds up to what one character calls "a sack of nada."

    Rolling Stone Full Review
  • Tim Grierson

    Doubling down on the giddily ridiculous tone of its predecessor, Now You See Me 2 is diverting, but the film’s rampant, cheeky cleverness — its ‘can you guess what’s going on?” coyness — ultimately proves tiresome.

    Screen International Full Review
  • Sheri Linden

    Compared with the first film, this one embraces the premise’s essential preposterousness, although not necessarily to winning effect.

    The Hollywood Reporter Full Review
  • Erin Whitney

    Now You See Me 2 is an essential example of how inessential movie sequels have become. It ignores what was good about the first film, abandons its defining characteristics, and tells a story nobody asked for.

    ScreenCrush Full Review
  • Richard Roeper

    Sitting through the smug and convoluted and ridiculous Now You See Me 2 is like being subjected to a dunk tank again and again — and then being handed a wet towel when it’s finally over.

    Chicago Sun-Times Full Review
  • Ed Gonzalez

    The sheer amount of people and incident indifferently presented throughout this film suggests only an obligation to quota-filling.

    Slant Magazine Full Review
  • Brian Roan

    Now You See Me 2 is a vapid, heartless film that wastes the time of its cast and audience alike.

    The Film Stage Full Review
  • Steve Persall

    For their next act, the illusionist con artists from Now You See Me will make every ounce of goodwill that movie earned disappear.

    Tampa Bay Times Full Review
  • Tomris Laffly

    Excruciatingly incoherent.

    Time Out New York Full Review
  • Josh Kupecki

    The deal-breaking problem with these films – among so, so many problems – is this: They don’t f--king ground the magic in any sort of reality, but rely on CGI for their showstoppers.

    Austin Chronicle Full Review
  • David Ehrlich

    We used to watch movies and wonder “How did they do that?” The problem with Now You See Me 2 isn’t that we already know the answer, it’s that we’re not even inspired to ask the question.

    indieWIRE Full Review
  • Tim Robey

    Constructed to fool the viewer with layer upon layer of lame cheats and moth-eaten devices, the film has nothing on its mind but sinking you gently into an in-flight stupor.

    The Telegraph Full Review
  • Chris Hewitt (1)

    It’s an impressively starry cast, but sadly, this lacks the charm, wit and, yes, magic of the original. You’ll like it, not a lot.

    Empire Full Review
  • Roger Moore

    That score — insistent, sexy, jazzy and loud — almost puts it over, letting us skim over the ways the laws of logic and physics are violated, the lack of charisma of these “charismatic” magicians, the works. Until the ending, where it all feels like a cheap cheat and a waste of two hours and nine minutes of your life.
