As I much as I liked that other magician period piece, The Illusionist, The Prestige is better. While the Illusionist is a neatly packaged movie with twist ending at the end, The Prestige displays much more creativity. There is palpable tension and intensity in the movie due to the conflict between Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman. Those two clearly deserve each other as you will see in the movie. The end was a bit disappointing, but all in all a great movie. Christopher Nolan is truly amazing in his ability to make extremely creative movies and yet have commercial success. I can’t wait to see his next movie!
