Goofs

On the UK mainland, the FBI would - at best - only have a consultancy or advisory capacity. Any law-enforcement would be in the hands of the UK Police. In London, this would be the either the Metropolitan Police, or the City Of London Police. There would certainly NOT be a blue US-type van parked on a London street with FBI plastered all over it.

Dull, cheap and no where near the prequel
15 June 2016 | by See all my reviews

While the first installation was enjoyable, the second one does not live up. The plot was bland and dull and dragging. The dialogue was dry and just downright stupid. The magic tricks were OK (and unnecessary), but there was no wow factor. No jaw-dropping revealing or mind hack or anything like that. If the first movie keeps you guessing until the final scene, then Now You See Me 2 just basically tells the whole story in a straight line. It's just plain bad

To pair with the bad plot, the acting was also horrid. Lizzy Caplan was beyond tragic. There is no charisma in her character at all. Replacing Isla Fisher was a really bad move. And when you thought: "Well, at least Michael Caine or Morgan Freeman will provide some top-notch acting?", you were wrong. Their characters are just so dull that even their talents can not save them.
