I love The Illusionist (2006) and it gets my 5-star vote. However, the Blu-Ray package has no features whatsoever. In fact, it doesn't even have a proper menu or introduction screen. The movie just starts playing. As the kind of viewer who likes to go through all the features and even watch with commentaries, I was disappointed. Yes, the price was very low but I'd rather pay more and get more.

Set in the late nineteenth century in Vienna, The Illusionist has a very nice old-world feel. There is a lovely, mood-enhancing score by Philip Glass and the film is given a sepia-toned look to complete the effect. Not only is the acting of the principals excellent, but the audiences and extras are very well directed and choreographed in their behavior. This really helps the live performance scenes come alive. The film is about an illusionist named Eisenheim (Aaron Johnson/Edward Norton) who starts to use his illusions for purposes beyond the stage. In particular, he aims to help gain back a forbidden love from his boyhood (Sophie, played by Eleanor Tomlinson and Jessica Biel) who is betrothed to a prince. I suspect action junkies might get a little restless, but admirers of rich stories and intrigue will likely love it.

Rated PG-13

The Picture Quality of this release is one the best I've watched, and this is no minor feat for a movie with great amount of nightime scenes or scenes in dark theaters, in which blacks are solid and no noise is noticeable.

The aspect ratio is 1:85:1, which is the original, as detailed on [...].

The sound is robust (I heard the 5.1 DTS-HD master). Sounds are strong, dialogues are clear, and Phillip Glass' music is well enhanced.

Since it's a bare bones release (as most Alliance blu-rays have been), you can't escape the feeling that this is a "provisional" BD, something that you will have to replace with whatever edition they release in the United States or somewhere else. But if you're not a friend of extras and bonus materials, and don't even need subtitles of any kind, this is a good option.

Other options for audio are: English 5.1 Dolby Digital and French 5.1 Dolby Digital.

I bought this DVD by chance. Mostly because of Edward Norton whose acting is always first rate, and partly because of its setting being in Vienna. And what a pleasant surprise it was! I just love everything about this film. There are not many movies on the list of my favorites, but The Illusionist has become one of them after the first viewing.

I recommend it to everybody.

The Illusionist film is a movie that my husband first introduced me to around 2006/2007 when we were living in Florida and it was great to watch the Illusionist together again this week. The Illusionist features a movie trailer to Gray Matters and the movie itself is a deep and complicated history between the characters of Duchess Sophie Von Teschen (Jessica Biel) and Eisenheim The Illusionist (Edward Norton). Duchess Sophie Von Teschen is set to marry the emotionally cold but intellectually gifted Crown Prince Leopold (Rufus Sewell). I do completely accept that Sewell was just putting his best in the role, it was just that I was extremely shocked by how his Prince Leopold character is required to treat Eisenheim’s character and that of his wife Sophie so abrasively just because he can. Chief Inspector Walter Uhl (Paul Giamatti) is Crown Prince Leopold’s right hand man who is required to start spying on Eisenheim after a witness tattles on Eisenheim and Duchess Sophie immediately after they are spotted simply just talking in a carriage together.

By Bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER on March 25 2007
Format: DVD
Young Sophie (Eleanor Tomlinson) upper class is enamored of budding illusionist, son of a carpenter, a (Aaron Johnson.) They are forcibly separated. Destined to meet again in the future as Edward Norton and Jessica Biel, their actions may have an effect of the future history of Europe.

I guess as an audience we are jaded with the onslaught of ghost stories and "seeing dead people" that the story and outcome is predictable, not that anyone took too much effort to hide. At least a fact or a butler did not pop out of the closet at the last minute.

However, the presentation was excellent with the film having a slight flicker gives a hand cranked quality to it. Inspector Uhl (Paul Giamatti) tells the story in third person. The music that accompanies the film was by Philip Glass. Once again, Rufus Sewell (Fortinbras "Hamlet -1996") does an excellent portrayal of Crown Prince Leopold.

This is a movie I am willing to say, "I own." I had to watch it three times before I caught everything in it, and I still watch it whenever it comes on TV, just in case.

Edward Norton plays the illusionist in rather a boring fashion. He is carried by the fantastic acting of Paul Giamatti, as the inspector and by a very strong script. Norton's clever dialouge also helps make the movie, as his words to the inspector have alternate or hidden meanings. Norton attempts to win his childhood sweetheart from the prince as she was torn away from him in his youth due to their class differences. This is a movie you must pay attention to and watch closely in order to get the full effect. No fast forwarding allowed. It was currently in the Wal-Mart $5.00 bin and used ones are even cheaper on Amazon. This one is a keeper.
