A good action movie is gold.
When I catch myself glued to the screen, forgetting for times where I am, just getting along with the action in front of me, too excited to think about or to look to anything else, that's a thought that comes to my mind.
And it was more true in a film that I've already seen some scenes, and even the end. Even knowing the big secret in Louis Leterrier movie couldn't spoil a bit the Saturday fun I had finally watching Now You See Me entirely. That proves how good this movie was - at least for me, of course.
I wish I had seen it in the theater - in that matter, I can take solace in the fact that there will be a second instalment. The cast is too good, Jesse Eisenberg is surely a good first scene, Mélanie Laurent called my attention since Inglorious Basterds, and Mark Ruffalo can assume the character he wants (that's the second movie with him this week, by the way) and we will be convinced. Not everyone think that way, though.
At last, we can never disdain a movie that has a Phoenix's song in the soundtrack, even if it is during the final credits, that I followed happily after such a good story. And action scenes, lets not forget about them...
PS: Fragments: The new Daredevil's Netflix TV show is pretty good. I've seen 3 episodes, and I only stopped there because I had a movie to watch...
PPS: The first time I remember thinking how precious a good action movie is was during the screening of The Italian Job, 2003. I was lucky to be aloane at the theater, because my reactions to the scenes were a little bit intense, to say the least. Like shouting uhuuuuu out loud intense.
