The Illusionist (Neil Burger – 2006) B+

Even Jessica Biel actually delivers a good performance here. I am usually weary whenever she is in the cast, cute but usually a dud when it comes to acting. Norton and the always brilliant Giamatti deliver fantastic performances as well. Add to that the spectacular photography and lighting and you have a very entertaining experience even though the plot is quite benign and predictable.
