Now You See Me

The first thing I noticed about this film was, What a cast! Mark Ruffalo, Michael Caine, Woody Harrelson are just a few recognizable faces in magic trick of a film. The story centers around four magicians whom rob banks while performing magic tricks in front of a live audience. The two audinces will be amazed. The one on film and the one watching it as well. Noone seems to be able to track down this gand of four whom can appear and disappear in a cloud of smoke in the middle of a bank vault and be “onstage” at the same time. This film is magic! It kept me entertained for 115 minutes. The storyline kept me intreagued and the cast kept me gasping for more. This film will not lose anything on the small screen I saw it on Cinamax this AM, and I am pleased.If you want to pull a rabbit out my hat then rent this film ASAP and enjoy it to the full. Grade A

A note from an editor!

Hi Matthew,

Thank you for the time and effort you put into this piece, especially on a Saturday morning. I can tell you definitely took good notes of everything that was going on during the event!

We still have some work to do before this piece is ready to print. Your piece has a lot of information, but it doesn’t sound like a news article. What was the point of his speech/presentation? Why was he addressing this audience? What is Vanguard? What does the company do – who does it serve? You spend a lot of time narrating (for example, how he was injured), but did not report on the purpose of the event. You can maybe mention his appearance/joking about it in a sentence or two, but do not take several paragraphs to do so. Also, I like how you mentioned where the name “Vanguard” comes from.

There are a lot of spelling errors in this piece – make sure you proof read each sentence carefully.

I know I am getting back to you a little later I hoped, and I’m sorry about that! But if you have time tonight, please go through my suggestions and try to rework your piece. You can send me what you have tonight/tomorrow morning. Please bring a copy of it to the meeting tomorrow and we will discuss it further from there.

Once again, thanks for your hard work and promptness! Remember this is a learning process, and we are all part of the Waltonian team!

Talk to you soon!
