REAPPEARING JUNE 10.
The members of the Horsemen are still in hiding, but when they’re assigned a new case by the secret society of magicians that they’re now part of, everything changes. I have no idea why anyone would ask for a sequel to a rather anonymous heist thriller in the first place, but here it is. There are a few minor cast changes, but director Jon M. Chu maintains the same kind of breezy atmosphere that made the original enjoyable. Still, it feels like everybody’s just phoning it in, and the heists are a little too over-the-top to be believed.
