The Illusionist movie gets a no snooze rating. Okay, I almost fell asleep of boredom in the first 5 minutes when they rolled all the credits at the beginning of the film, but once we got past that part, I really enjoyed this movie.
Note to self: If I ever make a movie, don't let the first 5 minutes bore the audience to death.
This is a love story, magic show, and a movie that makes you go... HUH? then OHHHHH, NOW I GET IT.
I walked out of the theater thinking... HEY, THIS WAS PRETTY GOOD. I ENJOYED IT. The person I saw it with walked out with the same thought process.
Ed Norton did an awesome job as Eisenheim the Illusionist and Jessica Beil who played his childhood girlfriend that he hooks up with later in an odd meeting was looking pretty hot if I must say so.... and I must say so. 8-)
I was baffled, entertained, and intrigued. It's a good way to spend the evening.
So the bottom line is... I didn't fall asleep, so it gets a NO SNOOZE rating.
