Did the machine work in the prestige?
The machine does NOT work in the movie The Prestige! So before we return to them, let’s just explore what probably happened in the movie – instead of what you are meant to believe happened: Borden believes he can take Angier for a ride in a masterful waste of money and time.
Who wins at the end of the prestige?
Borden confronts Angier/Caldlow in the abandoned theater where the bodies of the “Angier” clones are left. He shoots Angier/Caldlow in the chest and leaves him to die… seemingly stopping the cycle of Angier clones and, finally, emerging victorious in the battle of the two men.
Was Tesla’s machine real in The Prestige?
Yes, in the movie, Tesla did build a cloning (and teleporting, too, actually) machine, as we can see the cloned hats and the cats, and even the multiple Angiers.
Why was Tesla in The Prestige?
So his appearance in the movie (or rather the novel, which he’s also part of) is another of those fictionalized idolizations and can be seen as an homage to the real Nikola Tesla, when the book/movie lets him accomplish true scientific magic.
What’s the final section of the prestige about?
The particular brand of misdirection that lies at the heart of theatrical conjuring is also a favourite Priest literary ploy – the art of not so much fooling the audience as encouraging them to fool themselves… The final section is strange indeed, more Gothic than science fiction in flavour, heavy with metaphorical power.
Who are the actors in the movie the prestige?
The acting performances by Hugh Jackman, Christian Bale and Michael Caine were the best I have see in a long while. The only objection I had to the film was that it was a little long, but once you leave the theater you will discuss the film and it many twists and turns. My wife and myself discussed it all the way home from the movie theater.

Borden develops a teleportation act called “The Transported Man”, and an improved version named “The New Transported Man”, which appears to move him from one closed cabinet to another in the blink of an eye without appearing to pass through the intervening space.
