So, there were a couple of people that were saying he is doing his magic and since he is an entertainer that doing camera tricks and edits constitutes magic. And he is doing his job and that is to entertain. But by that logic it means that anyone in a hollywood movie doing magic is a magician.

I don't hate him either. I see both positives and negatives to him and his work. Hate's a waste of energy so I generally do my best to avoid it.

I attended IMX 2012 in Las Vegas, and there was an arrangement for everyone to receive complimentary tickets to "Believe." This wasn't something I was excited to see, so when the deal was revoked, I wasn't particularly disappointed - especially because Terry Fator offered us free admission to his show instead.
As it happened, Angel told the IMX team that the tickets were conditional - the condition was that IMX had to agree to give a testimony that Criss Angel's "Believe" was "The best magic show in the world." Naturally, the organizers declined the offer. Angel's team then tried to compromise by saying that a testimony of "The best show on the Las Vegas strip" would suffice. Still, IMX refused. So Angel revoked his offer.
In my opinion, this was a classless move.
To add insult to injury, Angel showed up to IMX during the last days to get footage of himself "supporting his fans."
