DVD "The Prestige"

Tom and I rented "The Prestige" last evening. We had heard so many great things about the movie and just never got around to seeing it at the theatre.

The storyline was intriguing, but what I found fascinating is how the screenwriter created a tapestry of past events with the present. The visual wasn't disruptive and that is so hard to do on paper. The characters are interwoven as well to challenge the viewer and my question now is, did anyone see the end coming? I must say I didn't and that includes Michael Caine's part in the finale.



  1. I found it very intriguing, too! And no, didn't see the ending coming. What I thought was so gripping about it was how both men let it just escalate and escalate until it was totally out of control.

    Good lesson in just getting over stuff.

  2. Gee, now I'm going to have to see this movie, you've made me curious!

  3. Just saw this movie last night. I did not see the end coming, and must admit, found it a challenge to keep up. I found the back and forth rather difficult to follow. Don't know that I'd recommend it to anyone.
