So much good stuff. I love magic. Every time you think it couldnt get better, it does. Love the depth and the callbacks. Definitely a movie that would be just as good the second time around. Slight possibility of a 10 with time.

Much like most of Christopher Nolan’s films, The Prestige is a film with twists and turns that keep you on edge until the very last moment. It centres around two arch-nemeses that work as Magicians in London. Borden (Christian Bale) and Angier (Hugh Jackman) continually try to upstage each other in their tricks - both in spite and attempt to attain infamy and greater recognition. In this film, we see the lengths the characters will go through in their greed for fame and success, suggesting that the line between ambition and obsession is quite blurred in the grand scheme of things. Angier is portrayed as the more Machiavellian protagonist, fueled by a personal vendetta, whereas Borden appears to be more subtle and clever in his illusionist ways. The brilliant cast, director and cinematography make this Psychological thriller very exciting and captivating to watch.

8.4. Tied together super nicely at the end but still felt unsatisfied for some reason. Classic Nolan movie. Loved all the main characters and Bale being named Alfred. Nice touch with Scarlett in there too and they all did a great job. All the loose ends seemed to tie up and tricks made sense for the most part. Great balance of twists and turns and predictability.

Didn’t understand all the twists completely but I was amazed at how well everything connected and how Nolan managed to add a new layer to the story in every action.

It was a good movie, both Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale do a great job with their characters. However, the twist was not that hard to see coming.
