Overall I liked The Illusionist better, but I do agree that they are two very different movies so they really shouldn't be compared. Both are worth seeing.

Bale was fantastic!!

I just got back from seeing this movie. I thought it was great. I kind of thought it was going to be confusing with all the jumping around, but it was pretty easy to follow.

I found it was ironic that

I can't wait to see this one again on DVD though since movies are ridiculously expensive in CA.

I can't wait to see this -- going to see it this week. Very impressed with number one at the box office with a full array of good movies out this weekend. Props to the film! Everyone I have talked to has only AMAZING things to say -- I hear it is very clever and makes you think. Really looking forward to this one...

Freddie, thats a good point about how far Angiers was willing to go...

I definitely want to see this again at some point, probably on DVD>...I think a second viewing would bring more clarity...

Freddie that is so cool.

I love this film too. It is highly entertaining But I have this question that really bugs me and I can't sleep because of it (hehe). So if anyone could answer it it is greatly appreciated and thank you in advance.

That’s a really good point, Mavericks – I actually saw the film again for the second time and this is what I think:

Watched it earlier on today. God, what an incredible movie. I was in suspense scared for most of it. Especially during the sabotague bits where you knew something gruesome was going to happen. I'm a wimp, I suppose - I really can't take violence onscreen. But anyway.

I thought Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale were amazing. Michael Caine, too. Scarlett Johansson, I like her, but the British accent was strange - why is there this need to change nationalities from book-to-movie?

Plot-wise...I've got a few questions, as the best movies generally do - unfortunately I don't know how to do the spoiler box thing. How, how, how? I'm desperate to ask my questions, get them answered, start discussing stuff. This movie is so intriguing. Thanks in advance

Wow. I just got back from watching it. Mr. Nolan is now officially one of my favourite directors - Memento, Insomnia, Batman Begins and now The Prestige...

I'm still in so much awe I can't even collect my thoughts to write a proper reply for this post!
