Now You See Me, a 2013 movie about a group of bank-robbing magicians, was a surprise hit thanks to superb acting, colorful fight scenes, and an end twist that had most audiences begging the magician to reveal their secret.

The original plot reads “The Horsemen, a group of four street magicians, rob a huge sum of money that belongs to insurance magnate Arthur Tressler. The group is chased by FBI agent Dylan Rhodes and Interpol agent Alma Dray.”
