The Four Horsemen resurface, and are forcibly recruited by a tech genius to pull off their most impossible heist yet.
A major plot point of the film is The Eye, the society to which the Four Horsemen are trying to prove themselves. The establishing shots of London very prominently feature the city's large Ferris wheel, known as the London Eye.
J. Daniel Atlas:
Okay, come here. What is it that you want?
Lula: I wanted to meet you. Everybody, really. I want to be a part of the Eye, okay? I said it. I do. And I want to use my magic for good, like you and Merritt and Jack especially. Oh, that's right. I know that ...
The "Stopping the rain" trick that Daniel Atlas does is impossible with rain, as it doesn't fall down in linear streams. The line of drops that seems to float in midair earlier in the magic shop, falls from one single point. Rain would not seem to stand still, but flicker all around the place. However, Atlas clearly states at the end of his trick that it was done using strobe lights and rain machines, therefore the rain was not real rain and the machines could have been calibrated to be consistent enough to achieve the desired effect with linear streams of "raindrops".
