Prestige, The (PG-13)

Quicklook Rating★★½

synopsis

In 1878, two young stage magicians clash in a darkened salon during the course of a fraudulent seance. From this moment on, their lives become webs of deceit and exposure, secrets and revelations, as they feud to outwit and destroy one another. Their rivalry takes them both to the peak of their careers, but with terrible consequences.

MovieGoer Review

For all its twists, turns and mind manipulation--much like the very tenets of magic--The Prestige is the one thing such a movie should never be: neither awful nor great--just decent.
