'The Prestige': Bad Magic Act
Hollywood’s most dashing men, Hugh Jackman and co-star Christian Bale, attended last night’s world premiere of The Prestige at El Capitan Theater in the Hollywood section of Los Angeles, CA. Hugh, 38, was accompanied by his wife Deborra-Lee Furness and Christian, 32, by his wife Sibi Blazic (inset). More pictures in the gallery!
Most of the reviews for The Prestige are bad, which is a shame because Hugh and Christian are such talented actors. But it’s a Christopher Nolan film, so you should go see it anyway! Three reviewers chime in on The Prestige:
- The Hollywood Reporter: “Audiences might enjoy this cinematic sleight of hand, but the key characters are such single-minded, calculating individuals that the real magic would be to find any heart in this tale.”
- Associated Press: “By film’s end, the notion of a rational and satisfying climax has hopelessly disappeared in a silly spiral of one-upmanship and a barrage of half-baked revelations that won’t make you marvel so much as shrug and forget about them.”
- Variety: “Pic insists on a depth of human emotion that isn’t developed — protags emerge as one-dimensional, despite the efforts of two of our best leading actors — amid increasingly elaborate, uninvolving plot mechanizations.”
