We went and saw The Prestige the other day. I’m not sure if I liked it or not. It was entertaining, don’t get me wrong, but quite slow in places.
Like Batman Begins, the art direction and what not was pretty decent and it had that same shine to it – I don’t really know how to explain it. It was refined. The cast listing was impressive (what was David Bowie doing in there? That was unexpected.)
I just didn’t like the twist, which I suppose, is entirely what the thing was based on, so I guess that’s why I’m unsure as to if I liked it.
Five stars for effort, two and a half for the story.
