A match is taken from a matchbox. It is then lit and blown out. A spectator holds the dead, blackened match, at their fingertips. They are invited to focus feelings of rage and anger towards the match. First it smokes and then a few seconds later it combusts and lights. They can then blow it out and keep it!

This is COMBUSTION. Created by Arron Jones

The bottom line is this: You're paying about $30 bucks for a lesson in chemistry. You will be taught in depth how to make the stuff needed to give the chemical reaction it takes to get the match to light while the spectator is holding it.

The DVD is a bit poorly lit, but lit well enough to see what you need to learn how to do this. The stuff you need to make this happen is all readily available without a problem. I'll likely never take the time to get the stuff and put it all together, so I'll have to put my faith in the fact that the chemistry works the way they claim. I have no problem making that leap of faith for the review.

There is no question that the effect looks extremely magical and that the audience reactions should be pretty intense. The only question you have to ask yourself is whether or not you would actually perform this effect. If you don't think you'd perform it, don't bother. There are some effects, products that I would have no problem buying even... [Read More]

“Combustion” by Arron Jones is a DVD teaching the viewer a method for causing a burnt match to spontaneously relight in the hands of a spectator. No kidding. This is exactly how the effect appears to the audience. The magician lights a match, hands it to the spectator, and some moments later, in the spectator’s hands, it relights. To say the least, this is an extremely powerful effect.

The most important thing to know about this effect is that it involves the use of chemicals that, if handled improperly, could be dangerous. There are two principle chemicals used, and while separately they do not appear to be volatile (based on my limited internet research), when combined they are highly combustible and potentially explosive.

While the preparation for the effect never requires the two chemicals to be in close proximity, both must be used, and a careless person could cause damage or injury. This is at the heart of my biggest concern with this release. While the... [Read More]

This is a really cool close up effect. It’s like real alchemy, in both method and effect!

The preparation is intense, but I think the overall impact will be worth it for MOST people. You will be mixing some hazardous chemicals before the performance, and you will need to be careful during the performance.

I think this could have some really cool potential in a longer routine, where a variety of strange things happens. You have to be responsible as you direct the spectator as they hold a match that’s about to ignite.

This is an extremely versatile effect that could take on a variety of tones as well. It could be played as comedy, or it could be played as a serious piece of black magic.

The DVD is clear, well paced, and gives plenty of warnings about the potential dangers.

Unless you are under the age of eighteen, or if you don’t like working with chemicals, I can’t think of a reason for not recommending this.

Five Stars
