PG-13 | | Crime, Mystery, Thriller
An F.B.I. Agent and an Interpol Detective track a team of illusionists who pull off bank heists during their performances, and reward their audiences with the money.
While in New Orleans, Louisiana, French Interpol Agent Alma Dray (Mélanie Laurent), is wearing a striped shirt. This is a reference to a famous French New Wave movie, Breathless (1960), in which the main female character, Patricia Franchini (Jean Seberg), wears striped clothes throughout the movie. This look, along with short hair, became the "look" throughout the 1960s and 1970s. This "look" has been revamped among celebrities recently, as the popular culture looks to French New Wave as a retro and stylish inspiration.
J. Daniel Atlas:
Ladies and gentlemen...
Henley Reeves: For our next trick...
J. Daniel Atlas: We are going to rob a bank.
The person who delivers the card to Henley clearly states the amount of preparation necessary for the events of the film. It is reasonable to assume that the card she received was waterproof. (In fact, a commercially available brand of playing cards is made in real life that can be used underwater.)
About halfway through the closing credits a scene is shown where the four horsemen arrive in the desert at an abandoned, dilapidated amusement park in Las Vegas. Appears in both the Blu-Ray Edition and the iTunes Extended Cut.
The Blu-ray release includes an "Extended Edition" that adds almost nine-and-a-half minutes of material.
