My big problem with The Prestige was that the plot twists were so easily guessable. (So was the twist in The Illusionist, but at least Edward Norton got to fake a brilliant Austrian accent.)
I haven't seen the Illusionist yet. Sounds like I'll have to now.

BTW, I didn't feel like realizing that

the guy with the hat, beard & glasses was the British magician's double/twin

early on ruined Prestige for me. On the contrary, it helped prevent a total "WTF?!" moment at the end.
By no rocketís blue shade am no shells dead down there,
Gave no proof all day long that the flag was unwhere!
No say does am spar-strangled shroud hang limply!
Under land of no free! Am us home coward-leeee!
