The 2006 film about rival magicians desperately trying to learn the secrets of each others tricks.
I couldn't disagree more with their analysis of the Prestige. The whole list is a little odd in that if it isn't somehow obvious, he rejects it as bad. But with the Prestige, it was about how obvious the twist was.. that because we wanted to be fooled, we bought it even though we were told over and over what the twist is, the audience doesn't start to get it until later in the movie. Either way, the twist is really what the whole movie was about. I think these website make this shit up to get hits.

Not only is that slideshow really annoying and the list stupid, but they got the twist wrong...
This story of warring magicians started out strong and ended with a whimper. The plot centers on a game of one-upmanship that builds tension between the two rival characters, and gets the audience invested in the characters' magical secrets.
When the film finally does reveal the magic behind the spectacular tricks, it's not ingenious stage contraptions or skilled sleight of hand--it's clones.
The explanation is far too simple for such an emotionally compelling film.
