Interesting concept Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 16th, 2013
First of all, you'll have to build a gimmick every time you want to perform this. There is no borrowing a bill and making it happen. You CAN have the spectator sign the bill (provided they sign the right end of it) and you can show it to them restored at the end. But they cannot examine the bill no matter how you perform it, and that's a major shortcoming in this effect. The spectator is naturally going to want to grab the bill to see it restored after the effect is done. That just makes sense. The fact that you have "restored" the bill but have to keep it moving so they can't get a good look at it, and you have to put it away quickly after doing the effect, will take away from restoration.

Yes, you can swap the bill out after the restore for one they can examine, but if you're going to do that what's the use of doing this effect in the first place rather than using the old switch out methods of the past? The restoration is visual, yes (at least on one side), but I'm not sure this is one you'd perform often. It would have been so much better to end this with a bill you could hand out somehow.

Credit has to go to Menny though for the novel way you ditch the torn half of the dollar. It's the first time I've seen it done with a money trick like this. That's interesting, but it doesn't necessarily warrant a purchase. In the end, this is just one you'll have to judge for yourself. If you want a trick that's visual with limitations and you have crowd control to make sure no one snatches the bill out of your hand after the restoration, you might like this.

I havent had time over the holida ys ti fully learn my new trick. I think the video ciuld be more visual and he needs to slow down the process of making the gummick. It seems. Like it will a great trick afte r I figure out how to make the gimmick.

Criminal by Menny Lindenfeld Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 19th, 2013
I have been amateur magician for more than 20 years .
Criminal without douth is the best Torn and mended bill I ever seen .
The fabrication of the gimmick requires carfull attention and patience to follow the insrucctions of the video .
The performance of the trick is realy easy . I presented it to
senior proffesional magicians at ESCUELA DE ARTES MAGICAS de Bogotá and got good qualifications .

Great walkaround trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 18th, 2013
I rate this 5 stars because this is a beautifully visual restoration and will go straight into your wallet for walkaround! No questions, its simple, visual and "can" be handed out, but doesnt have to be...

Game changer! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 13th, 2013
The torn/cut and restored plot in magic is a strong one ( cards, rope, napkins ). Menny has taken the torn and restored plot with a bill and turned it on its ear!

And it is dead easy to perform, which allows you to focus your attention on your performance.

You WILL perform this after learning the simple secret!

A+++

!!!Horrible!!! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on March 2nd, 2014
I am a beginning magician, but with very nimble hands, but.. the "secret move" is so complex that you can see a stutter on the video when it is performed. The trick requires defacing much real currency, is non-repeatable and non-respectable(both REAL negatives for modern magic)!

I am sorry I bought it, and I will NEVER use it! :-P

Effective Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 23rd, 2013
I have rated this 5 stars due to the impact on spectators, I think some magicians may feel the construction a little long (5 minutes) which may mean less magicians actually performing this effect which should keep it "fresh", if you want to leave an excellent impression and are prepared to put a little prep in then get this,

Missing the "wow" Factor Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 22nd, 2013
When I saw this on the bestsellers list for a long time, I was expecting a creative, new concept of doing a torn and restored bill. What I found instead, was a trick that takes a while to prepare and is not examinable in the end. You are also spending a dollar per performance although technically you can still spend the gimmicked dollars, but you cannot do the same trick twice with the same dollar. It was a let down for me because in my opinion, a souvenir of some sort that the audience can keep is important. It keeps the magic real. With this effect, the spectators cannot even touch the bill. In all, I would not recommend Criminal by Menny Lindenfeld because it is not examinable and it is simply not worth the preparation.
