The Four Horsemen are back! Well, three of them anyway plus Lizzy Caplan stepping in to replace Isla Fisher as the lady magician on the team. This time it’s all about revenge as Daniel Radcliffe, a reclusive (about as much as you can get reclusive) billionaire forces the team to work for him, but his plans are more devious than they first appear. Will the team manage to trick their way out of this new jeopardy? Will the Fifth Horseman (no spoilers in the text here if you haven’t seen the first one, but spoiled in the review) manage to keep his identity secret from his employers? Will the mysterious organization The Eye finally reveal themselves? All of these questions will be answered, but not necessarily in this review. We just tell you what we thought of it. Chris and JC weigh in.
Written by Chris Cox
Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
