These are what we call the 'YMMV items.' Things that some people find in this work. We call them 'your mileage might vary' because not everyone sees these things in the same way. This starts discussions in the trope lists, a thing we don't want. Please use the discussion page if you'd like to discuss any of these items.
Critical Dissonance: Rated "Rotten" at 48% on Rotten Tomatoes but the "regular" folks at Cinema Score rate it an A-. The film's strong week-to-week holds also indicated terrific word-of-mouth from audiences.
Designated Villain: Probably an issue that bothers many people who have seen the film. Thaddeus Bradley did nothing illegal and nothing more immoral than expose Lionel Shrike's magic tricks. Of all the people responsible for Shrike's death and his family never receiving the life insurance they were owed, he's arguably the least responsible, yet undeniably gets punished the worst for it.
Magnificent Bastard: Dylan Rhodes. Nobody knew he was really the Fifth Horseman. Even Thaddeus Bradley, who's known for deconstructing illusionists like him.
Mary Sue: Alma. She can do no wrong, apparently, can fight, and has enough [[Adorkable quirky tendencies]] to make the viewer contract diabetes.
Narm: It only become apparent on replays, but the final scene between Dylan and Bradley may become a lot sillier when you realise that as Bradley is desperately trying to work out the Horsemen's trick to save himself from life imprisonment (while standing with his back to Dylan), Dylan is squeezing himself between the cell's bars in order to make his big reveal as the Fifth Horseman
Or The Eye really does have "True Magic," and Dylan just teleported.
