  1. Dan Kenneth Gigernes's rating of the film The Prestige

    Magic tricks and film are perfect combination together because both art forms are made to trick and twist people into believing what the magician wants us to believe. This film is told in three different time periods demanding concentration but rewards those who keep their attention. Hard to complain about the production values and the script is strong with a cool twist.

  2. Vince Wynne's rating of the film The Prestige

    A lot of people see this film as genius, but I see it as muddled and overthought. Admittedly it is good; but far from great.

  3. Warren Butler's rating of the film The Prestige

    Christopher Nolan never disappoints. The Prestige is a excellent movie about movie magic. The mise-en-scen of this movie is one of my favorites keeping the verisimilitude of the movie intact with excellent costumes that double as props for the actual characters who constantly get back at each other. It is an excellent rivalry with a sympathetic villain featuring a recurring cast of actors.

  4. Carolina Pereira's rating of the film The Prestige

    a war between a magician and a true believer in magic

  5. gaussian's rating of the film The Prestige

  6. Daniel Garcia's rating of the film The Prestige

  7. Lights in the Dusk's rating of the film The Prestige

    While the narrative contrivances fall apart when placed under rigorous scrutiny, the film still works. Nolan's study of rivalry & obsession is compelling enough, but is more compelling in its exploration of the filmmaker's own aesthetic approach. His obsession with doubling; his need for twists; his habit of demystifying fantasy through a lens of the mundane; all find an expression in this surprisingly personal work.

  8. Wee Hunk's rating of the film The Prestige

    This movie is far superior to 'The Illusionist'. You can see how much work is put into it, and there are no weak actors. There are twists and turns, and something to figure out.

  9. abyantama's rating of the film The Prestige

  10. Ethan's rating of the film The Prestige

    This is quite possibly Nolan's most underrated film and everybody in this film is amazing. A true thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat the whole way through and even leaves you thinking long after the end credits roll.

  11. Alvise Narduzzi's rating of the film The Prestige

    Non ricco ed intricato quanto gli altri lavori dei fratelli Nolan e nemmeno all'altezza della sua reputazione, francamente, ma ciononostante rimane un film che si fa guardare volentieri. Il soggetto è interessante ma non eccezionalmente sviluppato, mentre il Nolan alla regia porta a casa anche questa volta un voto positivo. Un buon modo per passare due ore, nulla di più. Filmone mancato.

  12. Trevor L. Charles's rating of the film The Prestige

  13. Ulisse Salazar's rating of the film The Prestige

    with half point would be a 3.5

  14. Robert H. Stevens's rating of the film The Prestige

    Upon a second viewing, you'll get whiplash from all the plot twists.

  15. John's rating of the film The Prestige

    Rated it 3 stars the first time I saw it. The second time I saw it, it seemed like the silliest movie ever made.

  16. Adam Whybray's rating of the film The Prestige

    A steely trifle. Oddly likable in spite of itself! I'm sure a lot of us like the idea of being a stage magician with a terrible vendetta. It would definitely provide one's life with a good narrative. Also admirable for having a sound design that does a lot of heavy lifting w/r ensuring that the audience can follow its convoluted narrative. A good one for aspiring film-makers to study, if not to love.

  17. J. O.'s rating of the film The Prestige

    This is far from as smart and serious as Nolan likes to fancy it is, but still a good bit of fun. Once you start going from journal, to journal, and revealing a secret inside another secret - it becomes predictable and repetitive. But again, aside from these (expected) flaws - it is has some beautiful sequences and exciting performances.

  18. Balthaz21's rating of the film The Prestige

  19. Thomas Dods's rating of the film The Prestige

    This is Nolan's most misunderstood film - a real classic. Powerful story about self sacrifice and a narrative structure that shows the same sleight of hand as the magicians it portrays. Shot in a brilliantly intimate and modern way despite the period setting. Hugh Jackman gives one if the best performances in his career.

  20. Jack McKevitt's rating of the film The Prestige

    An extraordinary piece on obsession, sacrifice and, as with other Nolan works, the creative process itself. Twist follows turn and you may even think you've got it all worked out until the final hammer blow. Is it possible to push too hard and have the movie collapse in around you? Perhaps, but I was fortunate enough to be swept along like a mystified audience member bewildered by a new trick.

  21. Cristián Gómez's rating of the film The Prestige

    la ke mas me gusta de nollan dsps de batman, xq batman es bcn

  22. Daniel Roque's rating of the film The Prestige

    Batman and Wolverine play abracadabra. The anachronism between scenes provides an incredibly confusing plot that not even the magic appearances by Bowie, Caine or Johansson can make it sparkle.

  23. Addy K.'s rating of the film The Prestige

    THE PRESTIGE owes an acknowledged favor to the Quay Brothers—intricately designed, the tone and montage function like clockwork. This was Nolan's last 'psychological thriller' before transforming into unrepentant Hollywood showman (INCEPTION, INTERSTELLAR). Themes of obsession and revenge muscle past romantic subplots. Wally Pfister's camera captures the finest details. And what a treat to watch David Bowie as Tesla.
