Film evaluation
Although this is not a mainstream movie, it still gives the audience a lot of fun。(Review by Entertainment Weekly)You can see that Christopher Nolan is trying to delve into something about human nature in the film, but it doesn't seem to succeed, but the performances of Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, the two lead actors, are worthy of praise。(Review by Variety)The film has hard-working performances, a smooth narrative and small details that sometimes recirculate。(The New York Times)
"The Prestige" this film not only has many characteristics of commercial films, but also a thought-provoking video work, it shows the audience a variety of visual wonders, twists and turns of the plot Settings, the abrupt end, so that the audience in the whole process of watching the film, have maintained a strong enthusiasm for watching。In addition, the film is also a metaphor for the living conditions of individuals in modern society。What the audience sees is the twisted individual who is jealous of success, the absolute contradiction and opposition between people, and the loss of subjectivity of people in machinery or modern science and technology。(Review of "Film Literature")
