THE PRESTIGE: Two nineteenth century magicians (Christian Bale and Hugh Jackman) compete in a bitter rivalry that spirals out of control, and leads them into a dark world of sabotage, revenge, and obsession....

Overall, THE PRESTIGE is a really good movie. It’s got a cool concept, great performances all around the board, and is generally very well crafted. But there are some big plot holes and confusing points that keep this film from achieving "masterpiece" status among Christopher Nolan's other works, such as MEMENTO and BATMAN BEGINS. THE PRESTIGE is more on par with INSOMNIA... It's good, but not great.
