Not really good for walk around Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2016
Seems good for a show but you must make many gimmicks to use in walk around.

So, perhaps for a one time performance may be good. But for effective walk around not a good choice.

Great trick but... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on November 30th, 2016
I gave this 4 starts. It is a 5 star effect but 3 stars for setup and reset, so 4 is the average.

The trailer (which is shown twice for some reason on the download) shows you what the spectator sees. It is good, no great. Nothing is cu from the trailer. You put a signed bill inside a card (think Card Warp) fold both in half again and tear it in two. You show two separate pieces, then put it together and have them remove the now restored bill. That's the good news, it looks great.

The bad news - you destroy 2 cards each time you perform. If you are strolling and want to make up enough for the evening you will be ripping a lot of bills. Set up should only take a minute or two per gimmick once you get the hang of it but be prepared to spend a lot of prep time and be prepared to destroy a lot of cards and have a pile of half bills if you are working a couple hours at a party. And unless you practice handling it two different ways you can't use both halves to make the gimmicks.

If all you want to do is fool your friends at the club, this is killer. If you want to stroll all evening just be aware of the upfront work. If you spend the time you will have a killer effect.

Phenomenal Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
I was reviewing the methods I know for a torn and restored bill and I think this is actually the best. Its really easy, a decent price, the angles are great, it works with a borrowed bill, and you end clean. What more could you ask for?

The set up- It will take you about 30 seconds to set up each one, although if you set it up the way Dan recommends (if you can find the product he likes) then you can set up a bunch in advance and reset privately in about 3 seconds.

I was unfortunately among the people unfamiliar with the exact product he recommends, although I assume in a day or two someone will post a link to it on Amazon in the discuss section. For now its a 20-30 second reset for me with the other type of set-up. It seems to last in my pocket fine but I'm not sure how long you can keep it set up safely.

The angles are very good, but I don't think I'd want to do this surrounded. Although you can mostly cover for behind you will flash slightly. However if you are performing walk around, you don't need to worry about someone walking by seeing exactly how it works.

The visuals on this trick are fantastic. I can't think of a better torn and restored bill. For some reason torn and restored bills have always been way less visual than torn and restored cards, which is unfortunate because its much stronger to do magic with a borrowed bill than your own card. This one is much closer. It really does look like you took their bill, ripped it, and restored it without anything funny that looks like a switch.

I am also going to add that I don't think Dan's justification for the card makes sense. How many laymen know that a card is made of separate layers that are glued together. For now I am sticking with comparing it to sawing a lady in half. Its not that big of a deal one way or another. The visuals are so good, and the card is gone so quickly you don't need to worry about it too much.

You should also just be aware that you will need to destroy two cards every time you do this, which is a small price to pay for such a miracle.

Dan's teaching is phenomenal as always. I'm sure you'll love this trick. Enjoy!

A great effect Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
This is great and it's going into my wallet (always room for something like this). It's fairly strong but will require a few things you may or may not have, but is easy to get. It will also require moderate skill and confidence, but all that comes with practice. I'm not afraid of the moves, but they are important to consider when performing, although a comment and attention drawn to your eyes or what you're saying is probably the easiest if you worry. I only mention it because you won't be accused of "doing something" if they look up at you while doing what you need to do. But anyway, it's actually pretty good (and my wallet is pretty think with "thin" tricks to carry with me) and I want to use it. BUT, this does require more reset than I'd prefer, although it's minimal and the payoff is good. But I mention it in relation to things that can go right back in your wallet ready to go (like PB60). It's not a deal-killer, and the teaching is thorough and concise, one of my favorite requisites for learning something new. Well done.

Not a fan Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 2nd, 2016
I approached this wanting to like it. Dan Harlan gives charismatic performances. That said I felt the performance had the hands looking busy in ways that indicated something was going on. Also the performance had 2 obvious tells to it that would have me not performing it.

This is real magic Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
I've been performing magic for over 43 years and thought I have seen everything or at least come close to figuring it out … but not this time. This looks like real magic. With relatively little prep time, you can perform this anywhere, anytime you borrow some paper currency from a spectator. Sorry Canada, the plastic bills won't work. Talk about packing flat, you carry this around in your wallet and are ready to go. Yes, you will destroy 2 cards whenever you do this and so what, how many cards have you ripped in the past but not with the reactions you will get from this one? Thanks Dan for doing such a great job of demonstrating and explaining this. If you are looking for one of those "must haves" THIS is the one.

Killer Trick! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
Kill Bill by Ari Bhojez presented by Dan Harlan is a great trick! I have been a faithful follower of Dan Harlan since the VHS video he put out in 1995 called "Magic with Rubber Bands" and he continues to innovate and amaze. Any Dan Harlan effect is worth your time and money.

The "Kill Bill" effect is astonishing and the gimmick is very easy to make. The step-by-step explanation by Dan Harlan is easy to follow, as all of his magic explanations are. Dan teaches you as if this is your first trick, and I find that to be helpful. He answers questions before you think to ask them, and covers all the details.

Performance is very easy and with a few minutes of practice, you will be performing "Kill Bill" and watching mouths drop open with wonder!

Some skill Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
Miracle? Yes. But some prep required to do. I'd say it more visual than melt but harder to execute. Dan gives good tricks and advice. Overal it's a clever and unique take on a torn and restorn idea. You do destroy a card each time you perform. But nothing hits harder than using a signed persons dollar. Good trick m. Add to cart.

Flawless T&R Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 1st, 2016
Man, what a great trick!

Gotta love Dan Harlan! He's a funny, but more importantly, an excellent teacher. For anyone into T&Rs, you probably can figure this out. But for anyone new to T&Rs, this is a must have. What a great technique! I definitely recommend this. It's visual and Dan also gives some great little tips on subtle nuances that make for great convincers.
