What is the movie The Prestige about?
The Prestige is set in the end of the nineteenth century in London. Robert Angier (played by Hugh Jackman), his wife Julia McCullough (played by Piper Perabo) and Alfred Broden (played by Christian Bale) are all friends and assistants of a magician. During one performance Julia dies and Robert blames Alfred for it and the two become enemies. Both of them become famous magicians and rivals as well. They sabotage each others' performance on stage, when Alfred performs a trick, Robert becomes obsessed trying to disclose Alfred's trick, but it won't happen without consequences. This is a story about deceit and jealousy full of obsessions and battles for supremacy. The Prestige is a fun movie to watch, it even gives out a few secrets to how certain magical tricks are performed, it is a nice insight into the world of magicians and illusionists. Costumes and sets are gorgeous, 19th century England never looked this good on the screen, plenty of attention has been put into the details which make the world of the movie seem real. The Prestige has a nice twist and an awesome ending which will definitely leave many people puzzled. This movie is definitely worth your time and both Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman put out an impressive performance, even David Bowie shows up as the great scientist Nikola Tesla. Don't miss out on this movie, you are going to enjoy it.

I saw this movie yesterday on the television, and to my great pleasure the channel on which it was shown didn’t had any advertisements. I like very much movies of this kind, in which the entire action is shown in the nineteenth century and in which there is a bit of mystics. As about the subject line, there are two friends, who are doing stunts, they were best friends for each other, same as brothers, who stopped communicating with each other after the death of the beloved woman of one of them during the stunts. Robert one of the friends was blaming Alfred (the other stuntsman)- because he was the one who tied the knot on Julia’s arms. The end of the movie is very unexpected- it turned that Alfred had a twin brother who pretended to be his engineer (with the help of makeup) and was helping with stunts. The end of the movie was very unexpected- a lot of dead bodies, this way the subject line has become very twisted. I got an impression that there was something missed in that discussion. I recommend this movie to the entire family!

I like all sort of twisted subjects in the movie, after which you feel the desire to think, and i can say that this movie is definitely one of those. I wanted to see it for a quite long period of time, but was not doing it for some reason. The creators of the movie have done a great job, i am wondering how come they have so much fantasy to create something like that! It is genius! This movie is built on secrets, and if being very attentive, you will be able to solve them by yourself, without waiting till the moment when someone will do it for you. And at the beginning of the movie was shown a piece of the end of the movie, which also helps getting an impression about the movie. This movie is very sad and it shows real life which is full of competition, disappointments and envy. It is a real movie. The performance of the actors was amazing, i had the feeling that the actors have really lived the life of their actors. So my conclusion is that the movie is masterpiece, which i advise to everyone. There are no boring moments in it, but there are a lot of emotions!

I like Christopher Nolan as a movie producer for a very long time, and i heard a lot about the movie “Prestige” for a very long time, but have found the time to see it only not a long time ago. This movie is a story about two very talented magicians Robert and Alfred, whose friendship turns into competition after a terrible accident during a stunt which brought to death of Robert’s wife. All this competition between them will bring them a lot of victories and applauds, it will be the taste that each hero will feel, even if there are a lot of losses and traumas ahead. It is a very interesting subject that held me tensed during more than two hours. And of course the actors were great as well! Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale have shown very well the spirit of competition, and it was simply impossible not to believe them. Scarlett Johansson though is not my favorite actress for sure, but i should admit that she has done a great job in the movie, it was a pleasure to watch all of them.

Great story line, great actors, great performances, everything about this movie is great! I have enjoyed it a lot and my husband did as well. This is a very entertaining and thought provoking movie with unpredictable ending and I had tears n my eyes following the story. The acting is so believable that you even do not guess the actors are playing, you are grasped with the story line and keep on guessing what follows next. The story is about two illusionists that out everything on stage in their battle. What they win at last? The movie answers to this question as well. However, I wouldn’t spoil the entire pleasure from watching the film and will refrain from my future comments. You just need to watch t to compose your won opinion. Definitely worth seeing this movie. I am thinking for re-watching it again, so interesting and capturing it is! Besides all leading actors are so good looking and sexy!))
