Meantime, there’s a message in its madness. I just kept saying “wow, what a beautifully crafted film,” all the way home, and around my house when I arrived home. The rivalry between two magicians becomes more exacerbated by their attempt to perform the ultimate illusion. The only objection I had to the film was that it was a little long, but once you leave the theater you will discuss the film and it many twists and turns. You just know, and it’s just that feeling of being totally transparent with time. Solid performances are all around, with Michael Caine adding dignity and depth as the old master, Scarlett Johanssen as the as the lovely stage assistant who becomes the third point in a twisted love triangle, and even Andy Serkis Gollum!
Is there any point in discussing Sir Michael Caine? It keeps you interested; it keeps you guessing right to the shocking but most appropriate end. It’s always a shade of grey in what they do, and for Alfred Borden, I felt it’s more for survival and the provision for family, which is a strong subplot running through the film. One can relate to this personal human struggle for victory over another at all costs on a much grander scale, as the two magicians could easily be symbolic of how leaders of countries come to blows with each other, at the expense of their women and children — something we struggle with right now in our world. A unique plot with an amazing cast–any of whom could believably garner an Oscar nomination. And who cares if the illusions are mundane or scientifically unbelievable?
Christian Bale was amazing in one of his rare cockney performances. Besides the better understanding of the common body of scientific knowledge, things like having pretty assistants to distract, and having planted staff amongst the audience, somehow made me a sceptic 7m20p tricks and illusions, and try harder to spot at which stage had things undergone a sleight of hand.

Much of the film rings very true, such tthe the all-consuming obsessions of the lead characters to be the best and outdo all others. Christopher Nolan can do no wrong. I was floored by the deftness of how Nolan weaved and juxtaposed the non linear narrative so flawlessly. Look out too for David Bowie’s appearance as a Serbian scientist!
And although some people thought the plot line a bit tedious, Ths found it to be refreshingly complex and engaging, while not being so complex as to lose you. What “The Prestige” does very well is recreate a period of show business history near the turn of the century in which competition between magicians was serious and intense. There are deeper layers of this prrstige that will be uncovered over time.

Quite apt to describe how things work out during the movie, or to describe in general, Nolan ‘s films so far. Meantime, there’s a message in its madness.

And Michael Caine took on this engineering role as Cutter, responsible for assisting Rupert Angier Hugh Jackman with loyalty and conviction that they could, as a team, beat Christian Bale’s Alfred Borden. You just know, and it’s just that feeling of being totally transparent with time. Hugh Jackman too showed that he could play a dark character, as the two leads tackled their characters’ theme of sacrifice, arrogance, and ultimately redemption, especially for Rupert Angier.
Bowie holds his own. I just have to prestlge though, that Scarlett Johansson being Esquire’s Sexiest Woman Alive, gets to play a flower vase role here as a magician’s assistant, though her role as the pawn between the rivals added a little gravitas.
Teaming up again with his Batman Begins cast of Christian Bale and Michael Caine, and joined with the Scoop team consisting of X-Men’s Wolverinie Hugh Jackman and Scarlett Johansson, the stellar eye candy cast already set tongues wagging as to whether they’ll be able to live up to the hype of Nolan’s long awaited movie directly challenging the other picture about Victorian magicians, The Illusionist. It definitely stays with you.
At the end of the movie, one quote popped into mind: The introduction of Tesla adds yet another twist, subtitlee the film shifts from real-but-possible stage illusion to steam-punkish sci-fi.
The work is epic in sweep, beautifully filmed, and strongly acted.
