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.
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.
Salon.com - 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.
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.
ReelTalk Movie Reviews - 10/10 by Donald J. Levit Most viewers will enjoy the fun of being rewardingly beguiled by 'The Illusionist.'
Internet Reviews - 9/10 by Steve Rhodes With a superb cast and a warmly-inviting cinematography, writer and director Neil Burger crafts an easily entertaining piece.
Philadelphia Inquirer - 9/10 by Steven Rea Conjures up a world of mystery, romance and suspense.
tonymedley.com - 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.
One Guy's Opinion - 9/10 by Frank Swietek Hardly profound, but it's evocative, engrossing and fun--as mesmerizing as any of the tricks the title character performs for his astonished audiences, and equally enjoyable.
Quad City Times (Davenport, IA) - 9/10 by Linda Cook There's nothing fake about "The Illusionist," a quietly beautiful, fascinating mystery set in the past.
Supercala.com - 9/10 by John Venable An amazing team of talent both in front of and behind the camera stretch a short story into a romantic fairy tale for adults that works.
Orlando Weekly - 9/10 by Steve Schneider You don't have to have spent more than five minutes in the presence of a professional magician to recognize that Edward Norton has their entire act down.
