Katniss Everdeen voluntarily takes her younger sister's place in the Hunger Games: a televised competition in which two teenagers from each of the twelve Districts of Panem are chosen at random to fight to the death.
Katniss Everdeen is in District 13 after she shatters the games forever. Under the leadership of President Coin and the advice of her trusted friends, Katniss spreads her wings as she fights to save Peeta and a nation moved by her courage.
In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late.
Four magicians each answer a mysterious summons to an obscure address with secrets inside. A year later, they are the Four Horsemen, big time stage illusionists who climax their sold-out Las Vegas show with a bank apparently robbed for real. This puts F.B.I. Agents Dylan Rhodes and Interpol Agent Alma Dray on the case to find out how they did it. However, this mystery proves to be difficult to solve, even with the insights of professional illusion exposer Thaddeus Bradley. What follows is a bizarre investigation where nothing is what it seems to be, with illusions, dark secrets, and hidden agendas galore as all involved are reminded of a great truth in this puzzle: the closer you look, the less you see.Written by

massively insulting to the intelligence of audiences everywhere
by far one of the worst films I have seen in some time, it takes massive leaps that require the watcher to suspend their disbelief to the point that you actually have to dumb yourself down to believe the plot. The CGI prestige was laughable and all in all the film was disrespectful to magicians, illusionists and hypnotists by depicting each of the horsemen as a smug, know it all dick. The plot barely carried itself and the acting became poorer as the story went along. I would only suggest watching this film if you fancy feeling like you have smashed yourself in the forehead with a hammer and then had Satan jack off into your mind.
