.the prestige : a review.
Director : Christopher Nolan
Played by : Hugh Jackman (X-Men), Christian Bale (Machinist, Batman Begins) , Micheal Caine (Batman Begins), Piper Perabo (Coyote Ugly), Scarlett Johansson (Match Point, Lost In Translation).
the prestige revolves around two main person, Bourden and Angier. Bourden is wonderfully played by Christian Bale and Angier by Hugh Jackman.
The candy of the show is scarlett johansson. The movie revolves around a rivalry between Bourden and Angier. This dark movie shows how two person in the world of magic climbs up the ladder by outwitting one another in their magic tricks. However, this movie only revolves around one magic trick.
The original Transpotted Man is truly a magnificient trick and played to perfection by Bourden in this show. However, desperate for the trick that made Bourden famous, Angier wants the trick all for himself.
Along the way, their rivalry became intense by their constant interruptions.
Bourden killed Angier's Wife by a simple knot during a magic trick.
Angier shot Bourden's palm/fingers.
Bourden destroyed Angier's show by malicing one of his magic tricks.
Angier went to steal Bourden's magic trick.
However, desperate for the true magic of the original Transpotted man, Angier devised a lot of devious and cunning methods to dig up the truth.
At last, this movie manages to capture our attention by their trickery. the timeline is a bit messed up, but if you have half the brain i have, you should be able to figure it out at the end.
overall, i'd give this movie a solid 9/10
