Movie Review - The Prestige
This movie was recommended to me by a friend. Surprisingly, I have not seen this movie before. It was very intriguing. Similar to The Illusionist, it was enthralling and I kept guessing unti lthe end of the movie. It also has a lot of big name actors in the movie: Hugh Jackman, Piper Perabo, Christian Bale, Scarlett Johansson, and Michael Caine. This is an excellent movie - check it out!
Set against the backdrop of turn-of-the-century London. Two magicians
share an intense rivalry with each other and leads them on a life-long
battle for supremacy. The rivalry is so intense that is will be full of
obsession, deceit and jealousy, with both dangerous and deadly
consequences. From the time that Robert Angier and Alfred Bordon first
met, the two were competitors. However, their once friendly competition
evolves into battle for each others trade secrets.
