Are You Watching Closely?

'Are you watching closely?' This is the question asked by Michael Caine at the beginning of this film "The Prestige". Besides starring Hugh Jackman and Christian Bale, the main hype of this movie was the secret twist of the entire story that most people who watched it will not reveal to you. Remember 'The Sixth Sense', 'The Village', 'Wild Things' that things is not as it seems and the plots reveal towards the end?

Well, the film is almost like that though the core secret was reveal 3 quarter down the film while a smaller secret was reveal towards the end of the movie. What's the secret? Watch the movie!

Not a truly A grade movie but not a bad one either. Hugh Jackman was Hugh Jackman while Christian Bale, once again show us why he's worth the watch, like how he excel with Batman Begins. But the must watch have to be David Bowie excellent potrayal of Prof. Tesla.

One key question from the movie, 'are we willing to get our hands dirty in order to reach the top?'

By the way, this photo of Hugh Jackman is the secret (which is science, anyway). And in actual fact, the secret was revealed to everyone right at the beginning of the movie. "Are you watching closely?"
