Right, this is what i have gathered:
Chris Angel Levitation
thomaspp says: I find the effect to be quite bad honestly. I've seen a lot of people who think well of it. The off ledge effect is completley useless. For all the prop work and for the cost of the DVD I think you'd be better off buying another levitation if you really must "fly." Maybe something like King or Balducci. The Angel levitation has bad angels and just doesn't seem convincing.
gszauer says: All I can say is that it is NOT AT ALL WHAT I EXPECTED!!
The illusion is so simple, and so obvious you will figure it out the minute you see the gimmick, with that being said its GENIOUS, like a modern day baduci levitation. Mentioning the baduci, its about as angle sensitive, if not more. BUT IT IS SOOO COOL!!
The gimmick is costly, but if you have a handyman in your family (or some powertools) and you know how to sow (I might have mispelled that, by sow I mean like make clothes) and some old shues you can pull it off under $100 for the gimmick (I did).
I think it was worth getting for me, but then again I am a levitation freak...
The whole thing is genious...
Also, chriss explains it REALLY WELL! He spends about an hour, mabe an hour and a half explaining it. The explenation is so darn dragged out I almost fell asleep during it..... lol
Bweb789 says: Just got the DVD, its not for me, way to much setup, and to much time.
superduperninjaX10 says: if you want truly the best levitation effect that you can buy for a reasomable amount of money, literally the absolute best is criss angels. he sells it at his web site. it is the one where he levitates onto a chair and flys up the elevator. it is great only bad part is that you have to build it your self but that doesnt matter get it anyways.
magicbird05 says: REVIEW:This is a very great levitation because it is very improptu and you begin clean and end clean its my favorite levitation I have.
*Spectators can see both feet go off the ground and go back down
* You are clean before and after the levitation
*NO GIMMICKS for this levitatiom
*It is a very great idea invented not the balducci the secrets not very close to the balduccis secret
*Can be only viewed from 1 side not both and not all angles
*Can be done in only sneakers
*Normally you have to wear pants for this
*If you dont have a jaket, you need good misderection for the secret move
*Requires some practice before you do it
All in all:This is a great improptu levitation for 25 bucks
Good job Corey King!
tdk_ says: king rising is a cool levitation but very difficult to pull off with all the misdirection and balancing yourself (I find that really hard) in that manner.
povallsky says: too much balance not enough magic in this one. stay away I'd say
thutley says: I dont like it because most of the time I am found out,
Don't tell me I haven't practiced because I have I just think the jacket makes the effect a bit suspicous if not presented well. I think its a bold idea which is right in front of their face, if they move just a litle bit then they can see.
sorry but I prefer The Elevator
Walt_Disney says: I don't like this, don't like it at all
kawakami says: hate this lev too!! I's easy for the spectator to figure it out!! just one move and you are death!!
cardist550 says: if you get the right misdirection and angles and pull it off its pretty cool but most of the time someone will move and they wil figure it out
superduperninjaX10 says: STAY AWAY FROM KING RISING. terrrrrrrible effect. I normaly think that when something sucks it is the performers fault, but then the king rising was invented. go for wild levitation.
I have neither so work it out from these
Hope this helps
(it had better for how long i spent on that)
