As the team plots to disentangle themselves from Mabry's clutches by making contact with the proprietors of the world's oldest magic shop, an ancient hole-in-the-wall run by Li and his mother Bu Bu , they stage tricks that are really covers for heists and bits of tactical misdirection.

They find that the members of the Eye include Li, Bu Bu, Allen Scott-Frank and Thaddeus Bradley. We thought it didn't deserve any higher.

Similar scenes this time around are so shoddily-written, even the most novice audience members will likely find dozens of movie-breaking plot holes. Rhodes and the Horsemen are then taken to meet the leaders of the Eye in a secret library in.
This film is a bloated mess. In March 2016, the film's international release date was announced as July 4, 2016. It's an enjoyable flick, just like the first one. It is sawed in half by a screenplay of astounding stupidity, the kind in which several characters exist only to spout expositional dialogue.

Now You See Me 2 was scripted by Pete Chiarelli The Proposal and Ed Solomon who co-wrote Now You See Me , and will be directed by Jon M. Now You See Me 2 is, in many ways, exactly the sort of sequel everyone dreads: Needless, uninspired and empty.
Fans have the right to be upset at the fact that a movie full of men switched out one woman for another for no obvious reason, but apparently, filmmakers think that joking about that issue gives them a pass from adding in more female characters and solving that problem. I'm thinking in particular of , starring as a master card sharp and devil-may-care adventurer whose identity is a secret to all but his closest associates because he has somehow managed to avoid being photographed throughout his adult life. Such films are easily identified. The Horsemen infiltrate the facility and steal the chip, despite being interrogated and searched by security guard Allen Scott-Frank. It has become depressingly common to see movies like Now You See Me 2 — sequels to inventive films, made exclusively for one reason: To capitalise on the gargantuan Chinese market.
