CIA Review

I really didn’t care for this DVD very much.


I must say, I was disappointed with the gimmick. It is not something new, and I have seen different versions of this same gimmick many times before. in fact, variations of this gimmick go back hundreds of years.

In the intro to the three routines, Magick says these are “just beginner routines”. In other words, he didn’t put a lot of thought into creating some great routines.

In one of the routines, a half baked book test idea, he says you can hand the gimmick to a participant as long as they don’t turn it over. Did he really say that? Clear evidence he didn’t put a lot of thought into that routine.

So, you get a gimmick that has been done for centuries and three routines that were not given a great deal of thought.


Old gimmick and barely thought out routines.
