I know nothing about other Rubik's Cube effects. This one is NOT GIMMICKED. Some ads say DVD plus gimmick, but what you get with the DVD is a black velvet bag to store the cubes in. You really do solve the cube in front of your audience. I would recommend it.8 of 8 magicians found this helpful.
It's a breath of fresh air doing something different and not the typical card or coin trick. You will have to memorize some moves, but not many.
The reason I gave it 4 stars is because I hate buying a DVD or routine, then running around trying to find the items you need - In this case the cubes.
Hey Penguin! Maybe you should stock them. Hint, hint :)
good but overpriced Report this review

I like the idea of the routine and the fact that normal cubes are used. But it seemed like I got very little for the money--it was a very short video (maybe 5 minutes all included) and a bag and I literally could have written all you need to know for the whole routine in a couple sentences since the secret to both parts is very obvious. It's that last part that irks me, since I feel like I just paid $45 to confirm what I already "knew." Also, the demo video is a bit misleading since it cuts out most of the second half of the act and makes it seem like the cube goes immediately from matching the audience's cube to solved, which would be cool! but it doesn't. What the video does do, however, is show you how you can talk to the audience while solving the cube without them necessarily realizing that's what you're doing. There's some value in that too, but not $45 worth, in my opinion.3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.

I was very much surprised about the strong impact of this effect . Very good and easy method and very well explained. Great for a tv show or close up performance. I would have rated it with "5 stars" if for a little more money it came together with the small cubes, because it is not always easy to find them in every country. I had to order them separately on the internet...1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

Really, really dissappointing, misleading and waaay over priced.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.
The trailer for this effect has been edited cut out moves to make the trick look far more impossible.
For example at 1:46, we see the cube very mixed up, and when we see it again we assume he hasn't done anything to it yet. This isn't sleight of hand or distraction, this is tv editing magic :(

Recommend ONLY after Steve Brundage's Cubed 3 DVD... Report this review

If I had gotten Cube3 then this DVD, I'd give it a 4 (5 if cubes were included as you have to search online for a mini cube and a regular cube = more $$$). That said, you NEED to be able to SOLVE A CUBE. I messed up my configuration, and because I didn't know how to solve the cube (the dvd when I originally bought it advertised you don't need to know how to solve a cube...this is only partially true...) and the messed up cube config and this DVD sat in my junk pile for 2 years until the cube 3 Steve Brundage DVD came out. He actually teaches you how to solve a cube ON TOP OF awesome magic, using the same effect THAT FLOORED PENN AND TELLER!!!
So this IS a good effect if you have the mini cube(s) and the regular size cubes, AND know how to solve a rubiks cube legitimately.
TL;DR If you really love this effect:
a) be prepared to spend a bit more money to get the props needed as they won't be included in the effect
b) BUY CUBE 3 by Steve Brundage or have the knowledge already pat on how to solve a cube...I'd go with the former
Hope this helps!!!!
