How accurate is the ad copy?
Very straight forward and honest
What's in the box? a DVD
These are beautifully simple pieces of sometimes impromptu miracles and they are always good to go. Carey has a progressive approach to these card classics with often killer finales.
How are the production values:
Great set, beautiful spectators, clear direct teaching and it's all shot in HD.
My thoughts (what I personally liked/disliked):
There is something here for everyone. Especially people who already enjoy these classic plots and are looking for a new and creative way to perform them.
Storage? Does it "pack flat?"
All you need is a deck of cards.
How practical is this in the real world? Does it "play big?"
These are the working-man's card tricks. No frills, no haunted transformations, just good strong card magic.
How original is this idea?
Again, many of these are "classic plots" that will be recognizable to some performers, but the originality comes from Carey's simple and streamlined solutions.
Overall score: 9/10
