The best movie I have ever seen!

It is the best movie I have ever seen! It was well done! It had good actors, writers, and a good director. The best actor was Christian Bale by far but the ending was confusing. So rent this movie now!... Full review

of course I'll compare this movie with (The illusionist),each one has its own glamour,in this movie we can't deny that Nolan paralyzed us with magic,and that's seem so obvious in the last scenes when you realize that you were taken away... Full review

this movie is really superb, perfectly woven into the era of Nicola Tesla and his discovery of Magnetic Intensity. A huge lot of research has been done, quite a lot of efforts have been put to make this a non-glam, sensible... Full review

Christopher Nolan One Of the finest up and coming directors continues to show why. The photography is great, not very many visual effects; but they are not needed. The acting by Bale and Jackman as our two leads are very good,... Full review

I can usually figure out a movie really soon, but this one did get me a little. While I saw part of what was coming I didn't get it all. Jackman and Bale were really good. Scarlette Joehannssen didn't get enough... Full review

I loved the the story of the prestige. Christopher Priest is a great author. Christopher Nolan did a great job on creating such a beutiful version of the World Fantasy Award-winning novel. I think Nolan chose the right actors to play... Full review

Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman do a great job in this movie and I was really surprised on how smart Alfred Borden really was and it seemed like he was always two steps ahead of Angier. I thought that Michael Caine... Full review

I watched this movie and it had me at the edge of my seat. From the crazy tricks to the eerie diary readings in the magician's cell, you can try to guess what will happen but you will be proven wrong.... Full review

Unfortunately, that makes it so hard to explain why a movie like The Prestige is such a disappointment. Unfortunately, the Nolans take The Prestige in precisely the opposite direction and fall into the same trap that doomed the sloppy The Illusionist : building everything around the assumption that the audience will be amazed and surprised by the Big Reveal, and leaving little for those who watched with more than one eye half-open. ...

This is also the formula for the film's structure, which takes us on a high-wire act that builds towards a shocking climax. They start to harass one another, sabotaging the other's act, never afraid to 'get their hands dirty'. ... Full Review

These aren't some small time prestidigitators but superstar performers whose every trick ends in the resolution, known in magic circles as The Prestige - the third and final act in any magic trick. This is also the formula for the film's structure, which takes us on a high-wire act that builds towards a shocking climax. ... Full Review

I did not hate The Prestige, but I certainly did not walk away from it as impressed as I was with Nolan’s three previous efforts. So, it was with a fair amount of anticipation that I sat down to give The Prestige another spin, this time with the benefit of hindsight. ... Full Review
