I just watched Tyler's scoring session music video he made for this and I'll definitely be checking it out soon! It reminded me of the fun you can get lost in with a score, especially something like Paycheck by John Powell.

I found the film was quite entertaining and fun in the "turn your brain off and just enjoy" genre. The score worked fantastically well in it... It felt like something for a big game show. Unfortunately I found the "album" representation of the score was rather disappointing. Certainly there was more than about 25 minutes of score in the film, or was a lot of stuff repeated?

Brian told me there was about 90 minutes of score for Now You See Me!

Saw the film today. It's a good puzzle movie, flashily done. Liked the score too. Wish it was available on CD.

This film was like a blast of fresh air after the hatred that was MAN OF STEEL, the last film I went to see at the cinema.
Sure, it's silly and contrived and falls apart if you think about it too much, but while it's on, it zips along with some fun characters and Tyler's score certainly nails all the beats.
There was a great 'magical' motif he employed amongst the cool 70's groove that stood out.
Other parts reminded me of Christophe Beck's TOWER HEIST score - and obviously PELHAM 1-2-3 which inspired them both.
Together with IRON MAN 3, Tyler has written two of the better scores I've heard this year.
Shame the score has to be grabbed from the 'Ahhhh Jim Lhaaaa' market as there's no other way to hear it outside the film. That's sound marketing...NOT !!

I saw a scene from the film and it made me want to see the movie. It looks fun. Score is finally available on iTunes Canada....

TOWER HEIST reminded me alot of OCEAN'S ELEVEN by David Holmes and I felt Tyler's score was damn good.

I also was reminded of Beck's CONFIDENCE which is a great gem of a score!

Hope it's available in the UK. The movie's fun in spite/because of the many, many plotholes.

Just saw the film, catchy Tyler score, I find myself humming the theme which hasn't happened in a while. Also solid drum playing, will definitely get it on CD.

As for the movie, I had a hard time being impressed by magic acts being done in a 'magic' medium, film, which already uses light, sound and various editing tricks, flash backs and effects to fool and manipulate you. When you can spot the CGI audience during the magic act, your film is in trouble. The movie starts off ok with highlighting each magician's strength, but after the first major magic act, goes on far too long. I wish they just did the one act and focus an investigation around that, instead of building one preposterous setup after the other until the final act which is a letdown. It made me remember that yes, magic is fun, but after 30 minutes it becomes a bore and yet the movie continues and continues to hit me with more make belief, it gets too hard to buy it all. There are better movies about 'magic' out there and they used a lot less CGI and disco lights.

I'll have to check out this complete score he's streaming. The album release was a rare misfire of Tyler's in my opinion. Love his scores but this one failed to grab me. Very often hearing the complete score and not randomly selected tracks (I haven't seen the film) can change appreciation of a score for me.

fun score. this kind of cross pollination is really Tyler's forte. I can see why some say a Spiderman score by him would be really something.

>>>>>>>The album release was a rare misfire of Tyler's in my opinion>>>>>>>>

Well, that's even if you're allowed to hear it!!
Obviously I attained a copy from the...ahem...shared market...and it's padded out with songs and remixes.
Also, Tyler's tracks are a bit repetitive, which means you only need 3 or 4 of them to take from the score what you need.
I'll give the full score a listen. Hopefully it may offer a bit more diversity. Thanks for the link.

I just finished watching the movie and liked it. It's another one of those turn off your brain and just enjoy it type of movies, but I thought Tyler's score was great in it. What a surprise to hear the complete score just days after watching the movie. I actually like this score quite a bit. Like the movie, it just an entertaining listen.

+1.

Plays quite nicely. Mind you, I'm one of the few who enjoyed the original soundtrack release though it was exceedingly difficult to find when it was first released
