Set in Germany, not a kids movie and I liked it very much.
I wonder what any of the rest of y'all say about it?

If you have not seen it then whatever you do, don't read or listen to anyone give it away!
Not knowing what happens will make so much of it more delicious, esp as it nears the end.
I can say that this guy makes Houdini look like an amateur to me, but then in movies.......

Saw this with the family. Great underated movie. Wow. I kinda had it figured about halfway in but hey best two hours spent in the flicks in a while.

I think it got overshadowed by "The Prestige" which seemed like a very similar movie. I was a little disappointed with the Prestinge. I'll have to check out the Illusionist..<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

I look at the plot line beginning of The Prestige and no, not similar except magicians and
approximate period. I see The Prestige listed as action movie also where The Illusionist
has much strength in the least action parts. That's the most I can say without giving away
good parts. It is much more of a thinking movie than an action movie.
