Torn by Daniel Garcia (DVD) This is the next great leap forward in the piece-by-piece restoration. Truly unbelievable!

In the basement of a seedy Las Vegas hotel, Daniel Garcia slowly touched two pieces of torn playing card together. Achingly slowly, with no cover. And then he let go of one piece, and—it was restored!

Paul Harris shook his head and softly muttered, “If this kid’s not using some kind of sticky stuff, he owns me.” Daniel restored the third and fourth pieces in equally miraculous, just-touch-it-and-oh-my-god-it’s-restored ways, and handed Paul the card.

NO STICKY STUFF.

In lieu of Paul’s mortal soul, Daniel agreed to let Paul get Torn out to the world. It really is the next great leap forward in the piece-by-piece restoration; it's totally practical and even more magical than the original TV-only version.

With this DVD and a little work you’ll have a breathtaking magical effect you can do anywhere with any freely selected signed card.

Torn didn't just astonish Paul Harris -- Daniel has owned just about every magician and for sure every laymen he’s shown his creation to. Daniel Garcia's "Torn" is a must for anyone who wants to perform a truly miraculous piece-by-piece restoration.

Amazing Report this review

I did this trick to a bunch of my friends on the bus and it left every one of them staring at the card. Torn is the greatest trick I have bought at Penguin.

READ THIS FRIST Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 17th, 2007
ok guys...I would like to subbmit a full review right here, because i remember when I first ordered Torn I was unsure...so here goes:

pros:
card can be inspected before and after
card can be signed
when performed correctly, looks KILLER
there is a recap session
Danny teaches the advanced handling

cons:
angles
its hard to cover the dirty bits (trust me)
there is a setup (but a really tiny one)
Danny isnt a very good teacher, I found he went too fast and didnt really explain the handling and the grips

oh and a card is torn.....cant say anymore you will know what I'm talking about

overall:
If you are a begginer in magic...bad idea don't get it...it relies on sleight of hand only.
if you are an advanced magician and are willing to put the time & practise in, it's a good buy. It's quite practical but the angles and your folds could givve it away completely...I will say no more. Peace out

get it Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 7th, 2008
i own several different versions of torn and restored card effects. hands down this is the best one for the following reasons.

1)super practicle. the setup takes about 15 seconds, and uses no gimmicks.
2) can be used with a signed card
3) not that hard but does need practice
4) direct with sticky stuff and can be handed out immediately after the effect is over.

CONS.
1: does use set up but really not that big of a deal
2: dont end totally clean but the misdirection is so strong at the end that it doesent matter
3: not real magic. oh well

just get it. you wont be sorry

Great Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 26th, 2012
Great DVD. It's not for beginners, but once you have trained and trained and trained, this card trick has a very good effect and gets your audience baffled.
This is a must on every card trick magician.

Incredible Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 8th, 2010
This is amazingly visual. Torn is definitely what you see is what you get. However, you won't be performing this anytime soon. This is hard. It will take time to get everything down smoothly. If you hit one little snag the illusion is broken. Also there are angle issues, but really your spectator needs to be right in front of you anyway if they want to see anything. You won't be disappointed with this dvd, but you will have some work ahead of you before you can skillfully perform Torn.

Wonderful routine and DVD Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 23rd, 2005
This is by far the best T&R out there that I've come across.
Pros:
Great restorations
Excellent teachings
Do not need a force
can be signed
immediate examination
setup is minimal! takes less than a minute

cons:
practice practice practice!
angles can be tricky, but not bad at all.

For the people I've shown this to, this has gotta be the most convincing and most impressive T&R that I've learnt.
HIGHLY recommended!!

brilliantly devised Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on May 19th, 2009
This is my second T&R card trick. I bought Torched & Restored last year which is also an excellent effect but takes a LOT of set up (one time only for a pack of cards) and Torched is not impromptu. TORN is impromptu and is brilliant because each piece is restored one at a time right in front of the spectator's eyes and the card can be signed first!

My only comment is that it is VERY angle sensitive and requires (and deserves) a lot of practice. I once saw Guy Hollingworth do his T&R - which was phenomenal - at a Convention and I was sideways on, just a few feet away and I still couldn't see how he did it. There's no way That I can see that you'd be able to have a spectator view this trick other than being right head-on in front of you - no sideways angle or the trick will be exposed.

That said, this is a trick I will definitely use and I think it is as close to visual magic as you're gonna get with a pack of cards!

VERY Visual! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I love this restore because it's so visual, and if you don't have any major hecklers, it's really easy to cover. If you get a big heckler it makes this effect hard because it's so slow and deliberate, which is what gives it so much power. A lot of fun and due to it being so visual, EVERY spectator is ALWAYS blown away. DEFINITELY worth the money. Another one to always be ready to perform. Another keeper!

tough, but worth the effort Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
The only thing I have against this T + R is that it isn't angle-proof. And for bigger audiences, I would personally do another T+R, but this still is a wonderful trick, well thought out, and practically almost impromptu.

AMAZING! Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
I absolutely love this effect but you have to remember that it is a somewhat dificult effect to perform and the angles are not that big so you have to be aware at all times where you are. Other than that the effect really hits hard and has some great moments in it.
