Convoluted thriller about rival magicians (Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman) in Victorian England who stop at nothing to sabotage (and steal the trade secrets of) the other after the accidental death of the latter's wife during a theatrical stunt. Director Christopher Nolan's adaptation of Christopher Priest's novel is, thanks to the self-serving characters, more unpleasant than intriguing and all the double-dealing grows tiresome, despite the flair of the two leads and the estimable support of Michael Caine as a retired conjurer and Scarlett Johansson as the romantic love interest of both. Some violence, including drownings, a suicide and a hanging, and some crass words. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-II -- adults and adolescents. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
