Movie Reviews

Dispatch-Tribune Newspapers - 10/10 by Steve Crum Coming near the close of a summer full of movie superheroes and remakes, 'The Illusionist' is a film buff's treat. Here is an atmospheric, period tale of magic and murder. - 10/10 by Stephanie Zacharek I have vague recollections of some of the actors' trying too hard, and of places where the story dragged like a tired peacock's tail. But ultimately, by God, I succumbed to the picture's faux-laudanum haze.
ReelTalk Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Donald J. Levit Most viewers will enjoy the fun of being rewardingly beguiled by 'The Illusionist.'
Worcester Telegram & Gazette - 10/10 by Daniel M. Kimmel The reason to see it is to see two fine American actors at the top of their game, and the lush production values... which make you feel you've entered a lost world.
New York Post - 10/10 by Lou Lumenick Deserved an end-of-the-year prestige release, is a true work of art in a marketplace filled with velvet paintings. It's positively magical, the reason we loved movies in the first place.
Houston Chronicle - 9/10 by Bruce Westbrook For a film about magic, The Illusionist doesn't depend on tricks up its sleeve. It's more about artfulness, from handsome period details and Philip Glass' urgent score to an intriguing and vibrant plot.
Kaplan vs. Kaplan - 9/10 by Jeanne Kaplan This is definitely a thriller ---- one that will keep you guessing until the bitter end --- similar to a few of David Mamet's offerings.
GreenCine - 9/10 by Sean Axmaker Crafted with a budget-minded luscious sense of period detail to distract from the rudimentary direction and clumsy screenwriting... - 9/10 by Dave White It's like a catalog of lush, velvet fainting couches you can go live in for a couple hours and pretend the world is more cruelly elegant a place than it is or ever really was.
Tribune News Service - 9/10 by Roger Moore Dark, dazzling turns by Edward Norton and Paul Giamatti, and Jessica Biel makes it achingly romantic. - 9/10 by Tony Medley (T)his is something that is becoming an endangered species in Hollywood, a script- and character-driven movie that is highly entertaining. - 9/10 by Susan Granger This lavishly romantic tale of magic and mystery is utterly spellbinding, teasing and tantalizing you with the truth while juggling smoke and mirrors.
