Buy it... if you are accepting of an intelligently groovy blend of Lalo Schifrin and David Holmes' caper style with Hans Zimmer action muscularity, a striking combination for this equally hybrid story.

Avoid it... if anything that reminds of 1960's caper music repels you without a second thought, because many of the highlights of this score do require at least some tolerance of that retro vibe.

Now You See Me: (Brian Tyler) Audiences not only saw the 2013 caper thriller Now You See Me, they saw it in great quantities, defying muted critical praise in the process of paying hundreds of millions of dollars to Lionsgate, who announced plans for a sequel with haste. The film traverses across the boundaries for a number of cinematic genres, combining the magic, action, caper, and thriller genres in ways not even touched by the popular Ocean's Eleven franchise. A group of four magicians, the "Four Horsemen," perform their act on stage while simultaneously robbing banks and other entities in their disfavor. When government agents investigate the heists in the group's subsequent stage performances (which make money rain down on the audience, seemingly stolen from vaults elsewhere), they drag key players from the insurance and magicians' industries into the equation, eventually revealing that they're all related in more ways than first imagined. The negative critical reviews of Now You See Me were based upon the story's poorly defined individual characters and plot twists and holes that go unresolved at the end of the film. If the purpose of the production was a sequel, then such trifles are not worth fussing about. This is, after all, a caper film involving magic. Director Louis Leterrier's production had eyed composer Brian Tyler from early in the process, the composer seen as someone who could conjure music that bridged all the genre influences on screen. Tyler, who had conveniently just finished work on Iron Man 3, dove into Now You See Me with enthusiasm, considering the project a unique challenge for his talents. Undoubtedly, this film is the kind of project at which someone could throw a suitable, half-assed David Holmes knock-off score and the music would probably have basically sufficed. Or perhaps a stock, Remote Control-style action effort with atmospheric tones for the magical parts might have worked. Or a Marvin Hamlisch comedy in the form of The Informant! might have functioned in parts. The trick for Tyler was to combine all of these elements into one score and, by his own initiative, throw in an occasional nod to John Williams' magical ambience at the same time.
