A bizarre investigation started when four magicians (Four Horsemen) climaxed at a sold out Las Vegas showing a bank being robbed for real. Dylan Rhodes of FBI and Alma Dray of Interpol were on the case, however it has been a very difficult task to solve even if they asked for the insights of the professional illusion expert, Thaddeus Bradley. 

 I super duper enjoyed the film! I was hesitant to watch it at first, but was glad I did! It has a dash of Illusionist minus the love story....  Totally Unpredictable.... well unless you are that smart of an ass. Also, it has an Ocean's Eleven ring to it as well. Great Great! I guess the only thing lacking here though is... the character development. There wasn't enough scenes where you get to be close with the character. But, I love the ingenuity of the set-up.

Finally!! I've seen it! With all the hustle bustle, I finally was able to sit down and watch this with my family. It's a good take of Superman... with all the history. It's modern with a dash of medieval costume... good mix. Great lesson as well. ... about destiny and one's purpose in Earth. Great storyline.

Girl, Boy, Bakla, Tomboy - 2013

Category: Movie

Genre: OPM, Comedy

Director: Wenn V. Deramas

Writer/: Mel Mendoza-Del Rosario

Producer: Star Cinema, Viva Films

Cast: Vice Ganda, Maricel Soriano, Joey Marquez, Ruffa Guiterrez and more

Vice Ganda plays four roles in this film: Girlie (female), Peter (male), Mark ("bakla" or gay) and Panying ("tomboy" or lesbian). These four children were separated since birth. Girlie and Peter lived with their rich dad while Mark and Panying lived with their poor mom. The four then accidentally meet as adults.

It was one funny film! I watched this with Ninang Atho, Bee and Darlene. It was fun to see Vice Ganda, portraying, being a woman, a guy, a gay and a lesbian. As usual it's one funny trip! Just watch for a good laugh! :)
