    The guy jumps a T-rex off of the grand canyon and appears in a cage hovering from a copter above.

    Before the stunt he says they will leave a steady camera on the cage so you will know it is not fake.

    Than when he rides up the ramp there is an explosion (obviously done digitally) the whole screen is covered in flames finally the picture comes back and he is swinging in the cage an the T-rex is gone in like a 3 tenths of a second.

    Those flames looked so fake I have seen more realistic looking flames on a hot rod EPIC FAIL!!!!

    Exactly!!!

    At least those queers used real props.

    Chris Angel just drives a T-rex onto a ramp, stops, goes to a computer and adds a bunch of pathetic looking fake digital flames, and goes and climbs in a cage hanging from a helicopter and than just edits it all together.


    WTF I used to do shit like this with cameras when I was 8 years old

    Most of Chris's stunts are done in front of an audience.

    I went to the movies and a trailer for his death jump came on...and at the end of the trailer, in the silent theater, I burst out laughing hysterically at how bad a magician Criss Angel is...and then a couple others followed suit. (namely because he did a trick where he kissed a "random" girl spontaneously, and then she had a scorpion in her mouth)

    He's the worst magician because he does all his tricks with camera edits and audience plants. I love magic, and was really into it as a kid.. learned a lot of tricks and slight of hand and stuff... and I still hold respect for magicians who spend a lot of time practicing slight of hand stuff that requires skill.

    Camera edits, the real magicians are the editors. Audience plants, actors...that stuff is just weak and lazy.

    The walking on water at a Vegas pool is a complete joke.

    This guy is rather poor, IMO !

    A cooler death jump would be if he went to the edge of the Grand Canyon and jumped. End of story.

    thanks for the video Boscoe...

    that was frighteningly bad.. they made almost no effort to even make it look a little believable. what is his audience for the show.. 10 and under?

    Some of his stuff is entertaining, but all of his illusions can be figured out easily.

    Chris Angel is out of new ideas. That so called illusion was stupid.
