Review: CRISS ANGEL Believe

By January 27, 2009

Follow me on:

Can a production from Criss Angel and Cirque du Soleil fall below the sum of their reputations? After seeing the show tonight, I think that "CRISS ANGEL Believe" hardly falls short - the visuals, dancing, sets, music and yes, illusions, are fantastic - it simply misses the mark for reasons that I'll explain here.

Lightning Rod
Since the show's debut this past fall, I've heard from numerous dissatisfied spectators who vented their rage here at Magic.About.com (please click here). With few exceptions, most were not only disappointed, but despised the show. I think that few of those who submitted negative comments were Criss Angel-critics, they were genuinely let down by the show, which was then in previews.

As far as I know, this is the first review to be published since the show came back from a few weeks of retooling. For the record, I did not see the previous version of "Believe" prior to this recent hiatus.

Breaking the Magic Mold
When one attempts to break the mold - taking an entertainment art form such as magic into new directions - it's a definite risk. Angel and Cirque have merged magic and illusions into the context of an ongoing story.

It's a bold and creative move that I respect but the end results are also somewhat esoteric. In my opinion, this is not the type of production that will make the masses happy after they have forked over money to see it.

The Show
The first half of the show plays as a live magic stage show. Angel displays lots of charisma and even jokes with the audience. He's likeable and shows more personality here than he does in a typical MindFreak episode. With this more outgoing persona, he could easily carry a traditional magic show that presents a series of effects in the tried and true vaudeville style.

Angel then invites the audience to "journey into his twisted mind." It's an extended and confusing dream sequence that features an evil witch and dancing bunnies and ravens. Amid the dancing, huge props and projected video, Angel performs his illusions.

The second half, actually it's the majority of the show, is dark and dreary. I like the theme and accompanying visuals, but there are few light moments and comedy to break it up. (I admit that I like the vaudeville way of mixing things up to maintain interest.) I think overall that the production takes itself too seriously.

Muted Magic Response
The show features some stunning magic but the reactions from the audience are strangely reserved. In fact, a break dance segment receives more enthusiastic response than many of the illusions.

I have a hypothesis as to what is happening. First of all, none of the illusions are "proven" in typical magic fashion (the box is empty, there's nothing under here, etc...). The illusions simply occur during the course of the show. Would I want tricks "proven" in this production? Probably not. But this leads to my next observation.

And because illusions just happen, I think that as audiences watch, they accept that what they are seeing are special effects and it's as if they are watching a movie such as "The Matrix" where supernatural feats simply occur. This was an observation I also made with the Disney Live! Mickeyís Magic Show (please click here to read my review).

Itís Magic
The show features some innovative magic. Angel is sawed in half as he did in his television show; he performs his open metamorphosis (with more shrouding to accommodate the staging) and performs his version of a woman passing through his body without any cover.

There is also creative use of a large video projection screen. I think that one magic technique may have been used a little too often as well as overplayed. Lay people were probably catching on.

The show has high production values. The sets are lavish, the costumes are stunning and the dancing is mesmerizing and well choreographed. Seemingly, no cost was spared

Believe?
I appreciate and respect the artistic vision and creativity that went into this production. On the other hand, I can't recommend it to those who simply want to see a fun and entertaining magic show.

With CRISS ANGEL Believe, you have to come in with an open mind. And that's probably asking too much when youíre doling out $65 or more for the experience.

(1) Nick Maggio says:

This is an honest review. Actually, your take is pretty much analytically correct. Chris Angel does not make the show. Cirque du Soleil is the reason it can pass muster. With additional tooling the “dark” segments can be made lighter. It is quite possible that the Cirque du Soleil production could stand alone without the “name” draw.

(2) Jose says:

I saw the show in November, and it is as bad as it has been described. This is the first Vegas show I have seen where the audience did not applaud wildly. You are waiting for the good part to arrive, but it never does. The end is a relief. And for the record, I am a Mindfreak and Cirque de Soleil fan.

Bravo, Wayne !
Your review was appropriate for all of the right reasons.Your decisions to create a summary/review was the fairest and non-predudicallyaccount of why you arrived at the stance you projected on this always interesting web site. I respect you immensly for not “playinginto”the possible majority opinion of your readers. It takes a lot of extra energy and wordsmithing to write a position paper that expresses a rational and enlightening belief.
I sometimes read your reviews on some areas of magic that I will not be performing, simply because I love your talent for written articulateness.
Thanks for the ongoing gift of sharing your talents.

Iím very disappointing with the show, I think my expectation was so high and I donít see the real Criss Angel.
The Cirque du Soleil and Criss donít make a good combination, my friends told me the same and other people too, and I feel the answer from the people in the show so cold.
I travel from Mexico City, It’s a Long way to see thatīs kind of show.
I hope he can change in the future and make a real magic show (without the Cirque), and then maybe I can believe.

YOU ARE SUCH A FAKE

(7) Paul Sr. says:

This show was a complete waste of time and money.

The Cirque should be ashamed to be apart of such a boring show!!

(8) angela says:

i thought believe was absolutely horrific in every way. it should be rated x and kids should not see it! it was completely disjointed, difficult to follow and morbidly disgusting, it physically left me ill. it was the most demonically disturbing show i’d ever seen in my life and it should be banned completely.

February 19, 2009 at 10:29 pm
(9) lavinia says:

I am mad…no, not mad, ENRAGED! One cannot assume a part that brought fame in such a lousy way…and promoted as being the Criss Angel’s show from TV. I guess here’s the mistake, everybody’s waiting to see a version of the tv show, and guess what: you get to see doves, wires unhooked, and a verryyyy “scary” 1 million V cage…right!!! Chriss, sorry pal, I came from half world to see you, and it was more than horrible. I can’t even get my money back! The funniest part is that I tried to warn people not to go, and the answer was : “oh, don’t tell me that, I’m sure it is a great show!”. Isn’t it sad?? Oh, and by the way, once you cut a body in half, those legs are not supposed to move that long…you section the spine also…but yeah… you gotta go to school to know that…or at least google it!

March 1, 2009 at 2:15 am
(10) Sittiwut says:

The show should be pulled and allow room for another talent to express itself. This poorest show on the strip needs to admit failure and allow itself to die—as it does each time it is played onstage.

(11) roland says:

He is a dam good street performer, but the Luxor has really taken the wind from his sails. His show started w/one of his famous street acts, but then quickly turned in to a big theater production that went nowhere! Lot of dancing?!?! Sad he will be there for the next 10 years like he mentioned during his show. My advice watch his TV show and spend your $ elsewhere

April 2, 2009 at 2:26 pm
(12) Kitty Chan says:

Its a fair review. I went on the first opening night. I did have a open mind. Enjoying Criss and having seen many Circ shows.

Result not enough of Criss and not enough Circ. Dancers are ok but they are fill in at a Circ show. Its the talent of acrobats etc. Criss’s magic is trapdoors and wires. Expected MUCH more from both.

If its still a turkey after a year, maybe it time to change it, COMPLETELY.

More Criss, More Circ, actual magic that makes one go ooooh how did he do that? and actual acrobats where the same question is asked.

With Two such talents, we expect to be amazed.

(13) Dave says:

Worst show I have ever seen. Period.

April 20, 2009 at 8:51 am
(14) Annette says:

I just saw Criss Angel April 9th and please if anyone reads this please don’t waste your money and time. It is the worst show ever. I wish I have looked at the reviews before purchasing the ticket. I went by his show on T.V. The show is a joke I have been to Vegas and saw lots of shows and not once left saying I got ripped off. I saw David Copperfield and left amazed and wanted more. Criss Angel is a fraud and shame on him.

April 20, 2009 at 4:23 pm
(15) Kitty Chan (again) says:

Ok thought Id check back to see if I was wrong guess not :-)

So I have a solution if they wont fix the show. Turn it into a soon to be cult classic, kind of like Rocky Horror. Then at least there would be a reason to watch it, for a laugh!

April 26, 2009 at 9:54 pm
(16) bandwaganreviewers says:

If you read these reviews. Think about how many people just like to complain and be heard, since they have nothing else to do. 80% of the reviews are copied, and have the same fake tone. Don’t believe all reviews.

April 29, 2009 at 10:00 pm
(17) chrystal says:

Or, read the reviews, and see how many people Hated It!

April 30, 2009 at 5:39 pm
(18) Kitty Chan says:

yes read our comments, decide for yourselves. I had a guy coming out yelling at our line saying go back dont go in. I didnt listen to him, should have saved my money.

difference between us and jaded reviewers is we are fans who expected more. Magic is more than escaping through trap doors, or walking on curtains suspended by a rope. Circ is more than snappy dancers.

More is required from both. He could have made a circ performer levate, disapear, anything. They should have blended the talents together.

May 19, 2009 at 6:41 pm
(19) Don says:

I saw the show last year before the official opening and it was absolutely horrible. I went in April with a friend who is a huge Chris Angel fan and I was again extremely disappointed. I only detected a couple of small changes and they made no difference. This show is a total flop for Cirque and should be mothballed before any hardworking people spend their money on this terrible thing!

May 26, 2009 at 1:37 am
(20) Kelli says:

Yipes! That was the worst show ever! The only good part was when he “disappeared” at the end because I knew it was over. I can’t believe he has a show in Vegas still….even the locals warned my family about going (unfortunately, we already purchased the tickets).

June 19, 2009 at 2:02 am
(21) Gavin Hucks says:

I watch this show a few nights ago. It wasn’t quite as good as I expected, but I still enjoyed it. There wasn’t enough Criss, but it was still good.

June 19, 2009 at 11:48 am
(22) James says:

This was the biggest waste of time and money we’ve ever spent in Vegas. As someone else posted you keep waiting for something to happen. We are Chriss Angel fans and also have seen almost every Cirque show but this combination doesn’t work. If I wanted to see a bunch of dancing nonsense I wouldn’t have wasted my time with this show. 3-4 so-so illusions also didn’t impress anyone in our party. We all left with the same feeling of 90 minutes of our lives that we will never get back.

June 30, 2009 at 11:54 pm
(23) Harley Girl says:

A group of us just went and saw the show on 06/25/09 and it was the worst show i’ve seen in Vegas. There was nothing to believe about it or much magic. I saw KA show and it blows this one away. Don’t waste your money!!!!!!

July 7, 2009 at 4:09 pm
(24) Kim says:

I was with a party of 6 for July 4th 2009. We paid $155 each for our tickets. We were all very disapointed. There is creativity, beautiful costumes, & choreagraphy, but the illusions were bad, Criss was a bad MC, actor and did not have the mystic appeal that he had on TV. We needed more explanation on the story line. The show really needs some revamping. Most want to see him succeed and be “awed”, but this show just did not accomplish that for the majority.

July 24, 2009 at 4:49 am
(25) Carl says:

Having seen all the resident Cirque shows and given them at least 10 out of 10 i convinced my friends we should see this show. Within 10 minutes i wanted it to be over. At approx $150 per ticket it was a waste of money. It was neither a good example of a magic show nor a good example of a cirque show. The worst of any show in Vegas i have seen, weak illusions, and a weak cirque performance. The dancing and costumes were excellent but i expect more from Cirque. Not one i would ever recommend. It would struggle to get 5 out of 10.

August 1, 2009 at 4:56 am
(26) niles says:

I am a big Chris Angel fan, to see his show was one of the main reasons I even went to Las Vegas. Paid almost 200 dolars for the tickets and was expecting the best show. This show turned out to be so bad, it was a real big dissapointment. Chris may have done two tricks disappear or levatate and they were both lame as hell. He could have just done tricks from his show and I would have been happy. If Chris ever reads my mind the word will be REFUND that show was so bad I might not even watch Mindfreak anymore, and if I do I might just think it’s more camera tricks than actual magic.

August 2, 2009 at 2:08 am
(27) Danielle Dilano says:

HORRIBLE!! This show is plain awful. The magic sucks entirely! feels like a 5 year old’s birthday. There is NO cirque du soleil, despite what they claim. Criss has to BEG for applause because nobody applauds. Please dont waste your time or money. It’s horrific!!!

August 3, 2009 at 8:45 pm
(28) Carol McGrath says:

I couldn’t beleive how bad this show was. It started off by having to go through a metal detector to get into the theater. He was like a first year magician. You saw where he fell through the state when he “disappeared”. Cirque doesn’t even exist in the show. There are dancers dressed as rabbits, that the Cirque. Save your money. Go see LaReve at the Wynn. It’s a great show. This one stunk. It was a waste of $128.00 a ticket.

August 5, 2009 at 11:11 pm
(29) Ira says:

It was great getting free tix to this show because if I had to buy them I would have killed myself. Predictable tricks with look a like Criss as he disappears and reappears somewhere else. Don’t waste your money and your time with this show.

August 8, 2009 at 6:16 pm
(30) Cat says:

I too am completely disappointed with the I believe show. I just saw it this week and actually walked out after an hour. I have seen a number of magician and cirque shows in Vegas so I am not a first time visitor to the town. There didn’t seem to be anything original about the illusions, in fact they seem to be mere copies of others, ie. the flying birds, see Lance Burton, or the woman walking through Criss’ body, saw Siegfried and Roy do this. So in summation, a sad excuse for a show. Time to pull it.

August 10, 2009 at 5:58 am
(31) Steve says:

I received free tickets to the show after creating some of the props for the show… and even though I saw it free, I wanted my time back. I can’t imagine leaving there knowing I had spent $150 on that disaster. I really wanted this show to be a success, as the work I did for it would have been a great addition to my resume. Alas, I’m ashamed to admit any involvement with this mess.

August 18, 2009 at 11:13 am
(32) Tree says:

Saw the show this past weekend. Tickets were part of a package, so I didn’t look at reviews before. Assumed it would be cool like his TV show. WRONG. Was so perplexed by it that I had to go online to see if anyone else thought the same. Now I see from all the reviews I am not alone. I actually felt it was INSULTING. What nerve they have packaging this up like a superstar show. There is NO magic, everything was done behind a huge cape or fabric, or in the dark, or in a cloud of smoke, or facing back stage so they could fix things up and “amaze” you when he turned around. It’s the first time I was at a show where I didn’t have the slightest feeling to applaud. It was truly disappointing, the audience started out so excited then the energy just drained out and we left the theater stunned, like “what the heck was that?” Also, if you think it’s probably at least ok for kids — do not take your kids. He curses, a girl gives the finger to him, he tells “random” mom from audience he’s having bad thoughts about her, sexual innuendo, etc. Not for kids. Not for anyone.

August 30, 2009 at 9:55 pm
(33) Teresa from Montreal says:

Hi Criss, I saw your on 26AUG09. I was disappointed. Your magic tricks and Cirque show was not a very good fit. You should stick to “magic”. I am surprised you do not feel that the audience is left empty and wondering “where is the magic?”. I was more satisfied at the Price is Right show because I got exactly what I expected. Your show leaves me feeling empty and disappointed. You have what it takes, do it right and drop the circus act. Sorry Criss… just the truth.

August 31, 2009 at 11:07 am
(34) Felice says:

I bought my tickets on line and they were expensive. When I got there, my seats were at the last row at the top. At the hotel ticket booth, the same tickets were 59$, alot less than half the price I paid for. I got ripped off, not to mention the rip off of the show it self. I saw a better magic trick at the Statosphere at a trick shop than at the show. I was a big fan of Criss but not anymore. So sad to say, Criss! do something good with the salary they are paying you for your fans. Your stage show was a flop. Even you Criss, showed on stage that you didn’t feel the audience. You kept saying “so what do you think of that trick”. BORING you were. The best trick of the night, was that you made the audience disappear and sure for them not to come back.

August 31, 2009 at 8:33 pm
(35) Jill says:

I am waiting to watch Criss Angel turn his teen girlfriend Sandra into a real woman.

September 3, 2009 at 9:26 pm
(36) Felice says:

Criss your band performing in a music video in the late 1980′s is fantastic compared to your show today. Do a show like that and people will love it. Even your moon walk is sharp.

September 7, 2009 at 3:40 am
(37) Anna says:

While the first review reads as fair and balanced, it is still much too polite unfortunately. I am a huge fan of Cirque, I’ve seen most of their Vegas shows and a few shows out of Vegas. And I’m also a fan of Chris Angel and his tv show. I wish I could say I was a fan of Believe. The show is disjointed and does not express the true talent of either party. Somehow even in the attempt to take the audience into the subconscience mind of Angel, Angel still plays the everyday role of a Las Vegas magician. The sets are imaginative and fun, as well as the costumes. And when obvious mistakes in the magic aren’t being made (mind you we weren’t sitting in the front and could still see the fake) there are a few tricks by Angel that you find yourself thinking…oh wow that was cool! But the show overall seems to not know what it wants to be. There is no line to carry you from the beginning to the end. Things are constantly disrupted by akward set ups and odd transitions. The show appears as if it’s still working out it’s kinks and yet time has moved far beyond that now. It was a disapointment to say the least.

September 13, 2009 at 4:00 pm

Dont’ waste you money
Cirque Dusoleil should be ashamed of themselves for putting their name on this show.
BAD BAB BAD

(39) Mike Flowers says:

We bought our tickets ($140 x 2) 1 month prior to the performance. It was with great anticipation that we filed into the theater and prepared to be “WOWed”. WOW… I NEVER saw my $280 again!!! It completely disappeared!!! It was amazing. Generally if you spend $280 on a show, you get something in return for your money. But this was a MAGIC show: POOF… the money was GONE. There was no evidence that the money ever existed in the first place (or I would have been entertained…RIGHT?). Criss Angel is a f&^%ing GENIUS!!! The money disappeared AND there was no show. That’s right… there was no show!!! I guess he made that disappear too. There was some egotistical jack-ass wandering around the stage, but there was no show. GENIUS I SAY!!! I think I can do the money trick though… somebody send me $280 and I PROMISE that you will be just as entertained as my wife and I were at this colossal piece of crap.

October 4, 2009 at 5:19 pm
(40) Brian C says:

You are being kind the show is much worse then you have described anyone thinking of attending this production donít waste your time, my wife and I saw the show the week of September 20th 2009 and actually walked out 40 minutes into the act!!!

Poor produced Cirque Production

October 4, 2009 at 11:59 pm
(41) Rosary from California says:

Went to see Criss Angel for my birthday 9/29. I was so excited to be going to the show and it ended up being a huge disappointment. Definitely wasn’t worth my money or time. I had way more fun with my free lap-dance from Taco @ Dick’s! Oh and I “Believe” it can be better!

October 14, 2009 at 6:31 pm
(42) Bill says:

Just saw the show. It seemed disjointed and underwhelming. Bad wedding of concepts. Half way through the audience gave what felt was an obligatory applause for something that happened on stage. I had the feeling it was more for justifying for them putting out the money than anything else. They had to clap for something, or did they?

I also got the impression that on his t.v. show he uses a lot of cut and paste in his film editing in order to allow us to be impressed at home … cannot do that live, so, it seemed he resorted to unimaginative tricks. The only good trick was putting a drap over the woman and have her instantly appear 100 feet away on the stage.

In conclusion, save you money and go see Jersey Boys or Terry Fater (sp).

October 16, 2009 at 12:19 am
(43) Anna says:

Perhaps we were expecting to see the impressive tricks we see on television, but I don’t recommend this show. I enjoy magic and I enjoy Cirque du Soliel, but the two of them aren’t compatible.
I would also advise against bringing the kids along. It was kind of creepy and contained sexual jokes. I don’t think children would appreciate comments about Criss Angel’s penis.
As mentioned in a previous review, the story had no flow to it. Nice attempt, but as a whole, it doesn’t work. Please spend your money on a show that’s worth it!

October 23, 2009 at 4:52 pm
(44) Marvin says:

The wife and I saw “Believe” 10/19. Don’t waste your money. We too kept waiting for the type illusions I’ve seen him do on TV but they never came. He received weak applause for a weak preformance.

October 27, 2009 at 12:42 am
(45) criss angel is ma angel says:

I love criss angel and his show. Some people just need to get a grip. I think the show could use some fixing but they don’t have to fire the star he just has to deliver more of what he does on his television series. They can turn up the lights a little bit and he can do some more magic in his show to. He just needs to remember that his show is alive and well and should not leave it because of a few people. He just needs to believe in himself and anything is possible. And he needs to remember that he needs to think like a child and anything is possible.
Believe
Love you forever criss angel!!!

(47) criss angel is ma angel says:

Cut the crap about his show not being good. I thought it was very good and I loved the dark feeling it have you. Criss could fix his magic tricks and add more when he can. Things don’t just happen overnite you know. We are lucky we have another houdini around because in my opinion the world would be boring without magic. I hope criss reads this and fix what can be fixed before I come back. He should believe in himself and that anything is possible.
Believe what you see and what you see is what you get.
BELIEVE!!!!
LOVE YOU FOREVER CRISS ANGEL!!!!

A total waste of money and time. He must think that the people that come to the show are idiot’s his tricks have been performed by other magicians for the last thousand years. Don’t go save your’e money and see LE REVE.

I THOUGHT THE SHOW WAS GREAT, IF YOUR EXPECTING MORE I UNDERSTAND, BUT I CANT SEE HOW ANYONE COULD SAY THEY DIDNT ENJOY THEIRSELVES

went to his show on halloween, the worst!!! red sheet got stuck on trap door so when the flames came out you can see criss face go ohh sh#@! u can tell the fake cause he always has his back turned! when he walked down the dress u can see the strings and every time he does a levitating trick (like the dress) his help comes rushing to pull the strings off! waste of money and time

November 29, 2009 at 12:02 pm
(52) criss angel is my angel says:

I’m with SHANE his show was the best and don’t expect everything he does in his TV show. I’m with criss every step of the way and share the same passion for his art as he does.

November 30, 2009 at 12:07 pm
(53) Rick says:

I saw the show Friday November 27th and found it to be quite disappointing. I couldn’t tell if this was a show with great dancing and illusions or was it a self-indulgent “I’m Criss Angel” show. It was bad enough that when the actors and dancers started doing their goodbyes at the end of the show nobody was clapping for them because we were so confused. Not worth the money.

December 30, 2009 at 11:22 pm
(54) Tami says:

I have been amazed by Chris Angel’s magic, both on the sidewalk in front of PH Resort (then Aladdin) and on TV, but I must be honest, I was desperetly disappointed in Believe. Chris should be ashamed of himself for calling it a Circue show… a few dancers and one lady swinging on a rope were a complete disappointment and a slap in the face to the true talents of a Circue show.

Try again Chirs, you missed the mark on this one. BOO BELIEVE….

December 31, 2009 at 12:34 am
(55) Brenda says:

This was the most disappionting show that any one can imagine. I would advise no one to see it. Paying over a hundred dollars a ticket to watch magic tricks is obsurd. People have even asked for a refund and if I knew I would have gotten one I would have done the same. Cirque de Soliel should be embarrassed.

January 4, 2010 at 8:01 pm
(56) James says:

I just went to see the show this last December and I would not recommend it. Do not spend your money and time in this show.

The show is way different now, and this review sucks. The show was great both times

January 26, 2010 at 11:17 pm
(58) Jack D says:

one word SUCKED!! Honestly, do not waste your money on this show. Half the crowd wasn’t even applauding. Crickets would have been louder.

January 31, 2010 at 3:25 am

The show is really bored. I felt cheated and dissapointed. The magic tricks are predictable and cheap. I saw from my seat the wires that he used to “walk” on a “wall”. And no talk about the fake fans that were among the audience. Please donīt waste your time and money. Such a shame that cirque du soleil brand is involved in this awful show.

NO …. the best trcik that Criss Angel did was take my money ….worst show on the strip. Please don’t waste time and money on this show.

(62) sarah H says:

The show was a little disappointing for a few reasons. Firstly, we waited so long for our trip to the USA from Australia and my 8 year old daughter is Criss Angel mad. She saved ALL her pocket money for nearly 12 months (hard for an 8 year old) to buy from the mindfreak store at the LUXOR. We stayed 5 nights at the LUXOR which was awful. The rooms were horrible and stunk like cigars. The Criss Angel believe show was the highlight of my daughters trip. She was soooo excited. She was the only child in the audience and bought a rabbit, hats, and other items from the store with her pocket money before the show which was apparantly OK for her to attend I was told. US $200 per ticket mind you. The swearing in the show was appauling and I almost left and took my daughter with me. At the end of the show, armed with her $30 Believe book, we asked the security guard to ask Criss if he would sign the book for her. He told us to GO AWAY. I didnt want him to come out, just sign her program book for her. Still told to go away. I left that theatre with a sobbing and heartbroken 8 year old girl who saved all her pocket money to see Criss Angel only to be told to go away. Shes never forgotton that night, and neither have I.

I love BeLIEve! I’ve seen it several times in December 2008 and in the summer and fall of 2009. I love the costumes, the music, the characters, and of course, the magic/illusions! Criss is constantly changing up the show and adding new and different illusions every couple of months. The show never gets ‘old’ that way! Can’t wait to go back and see it again.

This show is so BAD, I wish I had time to go see the show again so I could let the clown know how s*** he is. Now that would be $120 well spent. If I put on a show that bad I would disappear too. If you must see this show (If I can call it a show). When you have seen all you can take just get up and go because there is nothing to see, just an hour and a bit of the same s***.

(65) lori v. says:

Sarah, I’m wondering where you bought tickets & programs… We had front row center seats last night & only paid $110 per ticket, and the programs are $10, not $30. Also, I imagine Criss often turns away those requests… if he signed everyone’s that requests it after a show, he’d never get out… we stood in line for 4 hours at a signing event to get his autograph for my 15-year-old son’s birthday… I don’t imagine they come so easily any other time, either.

(66) Bostin says:

I love Cirque Du Soleil show! Now that I said that, I can’t “Believe” Cirque Du Soleil would tag their name and reputation to such a terrible show. The magic was less than impressive. You could see the wires and framework on most of the illusions. The “plant performers” in the audiance weren’t even on time with the illusions. It was a train wreck from beginning to end.

We paid $170 per ticker X 4 from ticket master (section 102 row A seats 1-4. My friend got tickets 4 rows back from us for $60 a peice through a search and update site. Really, don’t waiste your time or money on this show. Go see KA or Mystere.

(67) Jeanie in Houston says:

Just got home from Vegas, and one of the first shows we saw was Believe. The driver didnt know we were on our way to the show, but he overheard something we said and commented that Believe was the least popular show in Vegas. Upon my obvious dissappointment he asked if that’s what we were were planning for the evening, and apologized when I replied that we were. We had bought the tickets the day before and had front row tickets, so that should have been our first clue. The bottom line is, too much Cirque, not enough Criss. What Cirque there was added nothing to the show, it wasn’t art, as most Cirque is, and the illusions Criss did were nothing special, and not nearly enough for the small fortune we paid. It was over in an hour, and the total number of illusions could be counted on your fingers. I saw some stills on the wall from prior shows showing Criss with feathered wings, shirtless, and a few other stills that were not in the show. In the show we saw, he appearred to have walked in off the strip, wearing what appeared to be a wig and bandana on his head, you couldnt see his eyes at all, but in spite of all of this, I am still a fan. He’s a beautiful guy, and I was looking forward to some eye candy, there’s plenty in Vegas for the men, and I am not into male strippers, so Chris was the treat that I was looking forward to. So Criss, I hope you read this stuff, loose the Cirque slap stick, it doesnt add anything to your show (I have seen other, much more impressive Cirque shows, but this was tragic), you need twice as many illusions, and you should be fine. But as is, I would not reccomend this show, as the driver said, its too bad, its a waste of Criss’s time, and our money. I will still watch your show on cable, but your Vegas show needs CPR STAT.

March 16, 2010 at 10:37 pm
(68) Lumpy says:

Easily the worst show in Vegas, and we’ve seen many of them. Chris lost any swagger he has (had?), and the Cirque interplay was horrible. Just give your money to a homeless guy, it will go to a better cause.

(69) Clark Brown says:

This show is a total waste of time and money. Cirque should be ashamed to have their name associated with it. There was nothing Cirque about the show. The little attempt there was was extremely poor and nothing at all like any Cirque du Soleil show. Criss Angel was another story. He was nothing more than a mediocre magician. He may be good on TV, but at this show, he was not impressive at all. His total act consisted of nothing more that a few disappearing acts and levitation. Both were carried out in a manner that was obvious as to how they were done. One cutting a woman in half was pathetic. The table was so thick, you could have put three people in there. Very basic. There are much better magicians in Vegas. In fact any other magician’s show in Vegas is better. Don’t waste your money or your time. Look at reviews of this show on the web. I sure wish I had.

This was the WORSE show I have EVER seen in Las Vegas! It was a rip off and it is hard to believe that Cirque du Soleil would put its name on it! I will NEVER give the name Cirque du Soleil the regard I thought it deserved based on how bad this show was! The entire show Criss Angel made people disappear. BORING! They also had these 5 “funny” guys helping him that were NOT funny. They were stupid and an affront to my intelligence. I would rather have lost my money on a casino table. Dancers were weird and there was no theme to the show…certainly not the Cirque du Soleil dancers and acrobats one would expect. Don’t waste your money on this show!

criss angel shoew believe will be going thu major changes.

1.the dance part of the show are gone.

2.criss will be putting in 30 new illusions which will first be shown on a&e special which was taped last week.

3.That is a new show and not the original Believe.

(72) Kitty Chan says:

What it took a year to figure out to fix up the show??? Do we who wasted our money the first time get free tickets to see it again?

blaming the dancers is wrong, its also his lame magic. like I said before he was capable of much more as were the Circ. They should have truly combined the talents. And had him working with the Circ troupe.

If he fixed it fine, but taking this long? boooooo

(75) Alex says:

I just watched this show on July 32rd 2010 in Las Vegas because my friend bought the tickets. This show is a complete waste of money and by far the WORST show out of cirque de solei lineup. It starts with 30 minutes of blabbing about his life and his rabbit, then he does several tricks with pigeons and and then few canned tricks with boxes and cutting woman in half WOOOOW this is so new! Then he blinds you with some pyrotechnic FLASH that literally BURNS your RETINA for 30 minutes.

TAKE YOUR MONEY and go to KA, Mysterie or Zumanity, this show is total CRAP!

Its not clear what the writers were thinking as his language is appropriate for minors in the audience and has few poorly chosen jokes about his “junk” and the size of his “pee pee” after he “materializes” from a doll.

August 19, 2010 at 11:48 pm
(77) Gary says:

We attended this worthless show on Aug 11, 2010 the last night of our honeymoon. What a complete letdown and horrific waste of our time and money. We were ripped off to the tune of $144.00 by false advertising (read lies) from the show promoters. Chris Angel must be the laughing stock of all magic acts worldwide. He is nothing but an arrogant punk who prances around on stage in some incoherent manner pretending he is something special. He has zero stage presence and even bragged early on in the show following an obvious faux pas; how it didn’t matter what he says or does because “I’m already paid under my contract”. Not only is he full of himself, he also made several inappropriate sexual innuendos with an audience full of children. Cirque du Soleil should be embarrassed to have their name associated with this goon.

Because of being ripped off by lies and false advertising, I now endeavor to NEVER step foot in the Luxor again or attend any show with the name Cirque du Soleil associated with it. Furthermore, I have made it my personal goal to tell at least 100 people in the coming weeks to NEVER even consider this show when visiting Las Vegas.

I reluctantly choose one star as there is no lower choice. This IS the worst show I have ever seen in LV— or anywhere else— and it scrapes the bottom of the entertainment barrel. Like another reviewer has stated, “the only magic Chris Angel performed was making an hour and a half of my life disappear. ” What a waste of $144.00, not to mention being gouged $18 for two beers in the show lounge. I do not posses enough adjectives to describe how bad this show was, but I can guarantee I will help get the word out to save others from being screwed like we were.

If you want to see an awesome show for half the price consider Gordie Brown at the Golden Nugget. It is worth every penny.

(78) Trent Hewitson says:

Shame we listened to all the hype, this show was by far the worst show we saw in vegas (we were there 10days and saw 12 shows).
Im quite suprised cirque de soleil got involved… actually i do, it was most likely LUXOR managment trying to stop walk outs, if there was no CDS we would have walked, they were about the only bearable parts of the show.
The majic was poorly executed and would not pass in any other theatre, without the blinding strobes he would be revealed as the fraudster he is.

Penn and teller was a real good show, spend your money there.

So sorry guys – you are right: The show blows dogs for quarters! But the truth is, most people won’t read this. They will come to Vegas and buy my overpriced tickets just like YOU did. Muahahaha!

I am rich off of this garbage. I only need you all to come to the show once – no refunds.

For the really stupid people reading this…I like you. I suggest that you people come twice. Sometimes, you need to give something a second chance to be sure that you have experienced the magic correctly. I mean when I disappear and reappear 14 times, it should blow your little minds each and every time. I love stupid people!

Don’t believe the HYPE!

Remember this last point: Get your children to save all year long so that they can afford the most expensive seats: $100 – $200! I make about $10million per year…so I REALLY need your help.

Criss Angle’s Believe was one one the worst shows I have seen. Do not waist your time or money to see this immature Foul mouth jerk who’s thinks he’s good at what he does .
Plus the music is so loud that maybe it will distract you from his crappy show.

I do not understand why he is so impressed with himself.
He needs a lesson in maturity and how to speak to an Audience without his foul mouth. He also need to know how to impress people with his Performance, which I for one was not.

He could be an execellent entertainer. Just go out and see why other entertainers get great reviews such as Terry Fator which I give him an A+ and Criss you get an F- from me.

I went and saw Chris’ show last sat night and found it
to be wonderfully entertaining…
It had humor that had me laughling
and illusions within Illusions..
the lighting and pryo were well choreographed
I even got to like “Maestro” and the others
The “magic” was not lost on me
and I thought the show well done!

(83) Rob Molter says:

Worst ending to 9:30pm show on 4/16/11. No “thank you for coming” no closing but “the show has ended over the announcer”. †Refunds should be issued for attending this show. Revisions on the same tricks every other magician has done with some home movies and photos from Chriss’ childhood – we didn’t pay to see a life story, we paid to see new magic. I will be calling the box office when it opens (closed after show ended, strangely enough) and voicing opinion to management.

(84) Chad&Amber says:

This was our first trip to Vegas, coming from Montana. It was a break from being parents and we were so excited to get dressed up and go out to a Vegas show. To those of you out there doing the same thing DON’T PICK THIS SHOW. We saw the show on 4/16 and we try to understand the technical difficulty that ruined the trick for the end of the show but didn’t we learn manners? Come out and still thank your audience! But beyond that, the show had no climax, very little excitement and was just boring. There was very little “show” and absolutely no “flow” to the story. Too much talking not enough magic. Thank goodness I only paid $59 for these tickets. That was still a waste. Next time…we will be reading reviews before a show ’cause this one was just disappointing.

(85) Michelle says:

My Husband and I went to see Believe in January and thought it would be the highlight of our triip to Vegas. We paid $367.00 for front row seats so we wouldn’t miss any of his amazing tricks. The best trick was unfortunately on us he made our money disappear and we were not even able to get a refund. RIPPED OFF! What a DISAPPOINTMENT! Not only was the show terrible and distasteful, but Criss has NO talent at all! Shame on him, the LUXOR and Cirque for this SCAM of the public. They are all THIEVES! The only way you can get a refund is to go to the box office right after the show, but guess what they close the box office as soon as the show begins so they don’t have to refund all the disappointed patrons that exit the theater angry.

May 5, 2011 at 10:13 am
(86) Tara says:

A BIG THUMBS DOWN for believe. Boring, all he does is yack yack yack about his life, how he grew up, etc. There is no dancing no performing nothing even remotely cirque..
Obviously the show has changed since it first opened.
And sitting front row, watching him pull birds from his inside coat pockets, watching the people running around in the dark
Un hooking his harness from when he ” levitated”
This show is GREAT for cheap street amusement…
But it has no business being at the Luxor or part of
Cirque du soleil….
I want my 178.00 back. I could have wasted it on clothes I don’t need or a beggar on the street or over priced bottled wate in Vegas and would have felt MUCH better about it…

(87) Tree Fiddy says:

Someone just took a dump in my eyes.

It’s not like this show is just bad….it’s hideous, revolting, and absolutely painful to watch.

Criss Angel might as well show up, give everyone the finger, and tell them to f*** off. At least, then we’d still have 2 hours of our lives back.

If there’s a God in this Universe, he will make Criss Angel spend an eternity watching his own show.

(88) Bill B (Canada) says:

I took my family, including my 5 year old grand-daughter. We were expecting an exciting, dazzling, magical Las Vegas style show.
Overall, we were all disappointed that it did NOT live up to our expectations, not even close.
Too much ‘filler’ narration. Too many ‘vaudville’ routines with juvenile humor. We came to see Chris Angel perform HIS type of show, HIS bizarre and novel tricks. He should work on his stage presence and his alone.
The tricks he did were mostly routine (for many magicians). The unhooking of invisible cables was clumsy. The special effects creatures added nothing. A couple of the tricks were up to his standards.
I really didn’t appreciate the use of profanity (‘s..t’, ‘f..k’, etc.). News flash to the producers. There are children in the audience!! You can be dark, humorous, mysterious, etc. without swearing. I can swear with the best of them but there is a time and a place!
I noticed what other reviewers stated. The audience NEVER really got into the show. Polite applause at best, most of the time. There was no intensity, no mystery, no amazement of ‘how did he do that?’.
I suggest Chris Angel concentrate on being Chris Angel. Until then, I would not recommend this show, especially for those prices. Give it a 5 out of 10.

OMG!!!! Criss Angel was TERRIBLE!!! I just saw the show on 6/2/11 and I’m still disappointed and can’t believe that we have spent money to see this STUPID show… I’M ENRAGED!!!! I cannot believe that cirque used their name to promote this HORRIFIC show… how disappointing especially when I have seen other Cirque shows and they were great!!! THIS SHOW IS A RIP OFF and Criss is LAUGHING IT STRAIGHT TO THE BANK!!! When he disappears at the end of his stupid, DUMB show, he should make himself DISAPPEAR FOR GOOD!!!!!!!!! Cirque has misrepresented themselves!! DISAPPOINTING!!!! DO NOT SEE THIS SHOW AND SAVE YOUR MONEY!!!!!!!!! HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE!!!! I HAVE NEVER SEEN SUCH A BAD SHOW IN MY ENTIRE LIFE!!!!!!! DISCONTINUE THIS SHOW…PEOPLE ARE GETTING RIPPED OFF!!!! I WOULD LOVE TO SPEAK TO CRISS ANGEL AND EXPRESS TO HIM WHAT A HORRIBLE SHOW THIS WAS… I wish I would have read all these comments so i wouldn’t waste my TIME AND MONEYY!!!!!!!!

June 28, 2011 at 9:47 am
(91) Janet Butler says:

I have to say that I agree with all those who’ve made the comment that this show was a complete waste of money. We’ve just returned to England after a week in Las Vegas and this was definitely the lowlight – a long way to travel and a lot of money for something that would be more entertaining in the local pub. Very, very disappointed with all aspects of the show. Having seen Ka and Love prior to this we were debating whether to see David Copperfield purely for the magic or to book for another Cirque du Soleil classic. Obviously we opted for the latter but spent the whole show waiting in vain for even a small appearance of anything resembling Cirque du Soleil. In the local magazines this is billed under the category of “Cirque” – mis-advertised or what? Hasn’t exactly done their previously good reputation any favours in my opinion. Are they desperate for new ideas? Som eof the illusions (of which there weren’t that many) were impressive, but the bad language was totally unnecessary, especially in an early evening show that wasn’t billed as “Adult only” and with an audience that sported children. Anyway, to anyone having to make the same choice as us take my advice, don’t do it, choose another show, ANY other show.

June 30, 2011 at 10:00 pm
(92) Karen says:

I am so disappointed! I use to believe, now I am not a fan! This show was a waste of time and money. Criss showed video if his tv shows which took up time, he should have been doing magic! I can’t believe he even shared a picture of himself on the toilet! I could see his stunt double and how he faked his so called magic tricks! Criss you should have never done a Las Vegas show, you were better off keeping your tv show. My recommendation to everyone is don’t waste your time and most of all your money!

July 19, 2011 at 4:23 pm
(93) Old Guy Steve says:

Criss’ show included age old tricks utilizing huge sets to make the lame trick seem somehow larger than life (sawing a girl in half with a 6 foot diameter saw supported by an enormous gantry…come on, really!…better with a hand saw). The humor was insulting, inappropriate, and offensive (e.g. Criss scoured the audience for a fifteen year old boy to assist him on stage, and voiced several sexual innuendos involving the boy and Criss’ attractive female assistant during the magical episode). My step-daughter says that this humor is “new”. I guess she and others never heard of Lenny Bruce, Redd Foxx, Don Rickles, Joan Rivers and others who made their niche with off color humor many years ago. The difference is, the aforementioned were actually funny on occasion.

(94) Cris Cross says:

I took my 12 year old, he had been looking forward to “the best criss angel show” he had been so excited to go, well he will not admitted but it was a total let down. Prior to the show he wanted to buy all the criss angel junk in the Luxor store. After the show it saved me the 59.99 magic kit, the retard $28.00 hanging key, the $18.00 chain, $8.00 plastic water bottle and last the $39.99 back pack. That’s the only thing I liked about it it was so bad, it saved me lots of cash. What I do have to say is the only part of the show I personally liked was the first 10 minutes prior to criss angel appearing on stage. Do not
“B E L I E V E ” just watch it on you tube.

(95) Nissim says:

There must be a well coordinated conspiracy against Chris angel because I am amazed at the violently negative reviews of his show. I saw him last week and I was thoroughly entertained. I loved loved his show. I laughed my ass off while enjoying his illusions. Seriously people, you are enraged at his show? Did I see the same show you did?

It you haven’t seen this show yet don’t let these.stupid comments stop you. Go see it. You will love it.

(96) Anna says:

I went to see this show in Vegas just a few weeks ago and not only was I disappointed–I was SORELY disappointed. I’m not sure where Cirque was present in the show I went to see, but it appeared maybe three or four times in the form of some hasty props that flickered on-and-off screen as though they weren’t even there to begin with. There was too much talking and jokes, and too many tricks with audience participation (which are easy to figure out.. send me an email if you want to know how). The woman who was sawed in half was most evidently a robot. Anyway, I guess maybe the show was ruined by me trying to figure out the tricks… as for myself, I regret not having paid the extra 50-60$ and getting equally good seats at the REAL Cirque.

We just went and saw the show and boy am I disappointed that I did not read these reviews before I booked. The show was terrible. The crowd clapped out of pitty for him. If the show has been this bad for this long then shame on the Luxor for selling the tickets at the price we paid. Huge disappointment, don’t waste your money, his show is nothing like what you saw in his tv series. The only magic was how quicly our money disappeared!!!

(99) Jimmy Thomas says:

I liked his personality but the show was very dissapointing. Two different illusions did not work with intermissions two different times. I would not recommend this show especially for the price you have to pay. People are going to the show because of his TV show.

(104) Holly says:

So, i was a little disappointed with some of the non-interactive tricks with the audience, however I have to say I would pay to go to this show again if it meant I could figure out how the heck he read my mind. It’s been almost 3 years since my husband and I went to this show and when we were there, I was 6 months pregnant. He shot this wrist band thing and it hit me, meaning i was asked to participate in a trick. not only did he know my name, where i was from, and a random word i thought of at the last second but as i was walking away he told me that my unborn child was a boy. I’m honestly still freaked out about it today and i want to know how he did it. as we walked out, other members of the audience accused us of being actors. i swear on my kid that i’m not an actor, i wasn’t part of the show and i had never met Criss or any members of his show before. This trick was worth the ticket price. I kept the paper that has all three things he knew about me as well as the wrist band, and i wish i had a dvd to show my friends what he did.

This was an epic failure. He botched his tricks and has no jokes… and Cirque donated the low point of their productions… the loser clowns. He destroyed a motorcycle and got his staff hurt… don’t pay one penny to see this hack.

Me and 12 friends decided to see this “Cirque magic” show since none of us have seen it before. EVERY single one of us thought it was the WORST show we have ever seen in Vegas. A few lame jokes, a few predictable illusions and a few cheap special effects forced together to form a show. We felt conned. Criss, Luxor and Cirque should all be ashamed of themselves for charging people their hard earned money for this crap. If you are considering seeing this show…Don’t. Consider yourself warned.

I seldom write comments, but I browsed a few comments on
Review: CRISS ANGEL Believe. I do have 2 questions for you if it’s okay. Is it just me or do some of these comments look like they are left by brain dead people? :-P And, if you are writing at other online social sites, I would like to follow everything new you have to post. Would you list of every one of all your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
