New to Blu Ray Review: “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone”

With the recent tragic passing of actor James Gandolfini, fans can now remember the actor by seeing him in one of his last roles as the casino owning Doug Munny in this year “The Incredible Burt Wonderstone", which was released on Blu-Ray today. Along with James, veteran comedic actors Jim Carrey (street magician Steve Gray), Steve Carell (Burt Wonderstone), Steve Buscemi (Anton Marvelton), and Olivia Wilde (Jane) all give a good performance in one of this years biggest films. Honestly though I feel like the comedy performance award for this film should go to Alan Arkin who played Rance Holloway. There is something about Alan’s facial expressions and comedic timing that I find unbelievably hysterical.
I really was hoping to see a great Jim Carrey performance but was a little disappointed. It could have just been the role he played but I didn’t find him particularly funny in the film. Steve Carrel was amazing and I am always shocked about how much you can love or hate the characters Steve plays. And as always an Olivia Wilde sighting never hurts anyone!
In the film, Burt Wonderstone is on top of the world as its most famous magician. With the fame though comes Burt’s severe egotism and in-turn more lackluster performances. With the new shocking street magic of Steve Gray taking away his audience, Burt’s world falls apart and he finds himself searching for why he started magic in the first place. With the help of Jane and his longtime partner Anton, the trio sets to make an illusion the likes of nothing ever done before.
This film is released on Blu-Ray on June 25th. Check it out today.
