The Prestige

Filed under: movies — mahou @ 6:23 pm

Starts okay, but is let down by ludicous ending that kills the credibility of the film. Christian Bale’s character is unlikable, so even after Hugh Jackman’s major heel turn you still don’t care about his character.

The general feel of the movie is good, with good characterization and scenery, interesting topics covered and some magic tricks revealed. Major changes were made to the book to convert it to the screen and I feel they should have ditched the ending for something believable and would have created a better product.
