This dvd is action packed and thrilling. However if you are a beginer I would have to advise against
this since most of the tricks and routines require a decent knowledge of card handling. But one more
time Greg has done it again with some killer card routines. Two Words... GET IT!!!

Ok, i personally didn't really like the DVD that much, one reason being that i didn't have a double
faced blank deck so I could not even perform the first effect on the DVD, then the second effect
also had a great part in which you needed a gaff card box that is not even taught how to be made...
What I did get out of this DVD was Greg's audience interaction, it taught me how to react
with the audience and stuff like that, the tricks required alot of setup and wern't that amazing if
you ask me.

This is challenging material but well worth the time. The things I took away from this DVD is
Wilson's version of the Butterfly Cut, his spectator cut to the aces and I did his Lethal Fours for
a while (it's a hard trick to remember!) Great teaching and, as always, Wilson is very

This is the best card magic I have ever seen, bar none! A couple of the moves are a bit "nacky" but
the results are incredible. You will level your spectators with the effects you can pull off. I
don't personally like Greg's performance style, but he does it very, very well. He teaches
everything and it is very valuable. He teaches his "back stage pass" and the pass is so invisible,
I had to re-watch it in slow motion several times just to see what he was doing, during the
explanation! After you get it down, you will use it ALL THE TIME! This is great material...don't
pass it up!

Using a blank deck and one signed card for Ambitious Card is a great idea that Wilson came up with
here. Involving a spectator in a Four Aces is also great. Most of the routines are multi-phase and
the phases are usually independent. You can remove phases that are too hard, and you can also use a
lot of the moves in your own routines.
Wilson is an energetic and fun teacher who goes
through the moves accurately and informatively -- but also quickly. You'll have to watch the
tutorials a few times to learn the moves. With boomerang card, you're pretty much on your own. Also,
you won't be able to make a pack suddenly appear around your deck like Wilson does.
...except the sound on the performance scenes were muffled.
Fortunately, the sound on the
training scenes was good.
Greg's training is fast-and-furious, so you literally need to
his training bits a few times to catch the whole sequence. This guy slows
Greg teaches full routines, so if you practice/rehearse the full routine, you
literally have a full-show.
But they were extremely hard to perform and basically couldn't be performed in anything but a show.
Having that been said, yes, they may take a lot of time to get down but if that is your style and
you like to perform it that way then go for it! Greg will show you how to perform anything and
everything in a good comedic way that will amaze the audience.
If your willing to put in some serious hours, you could go to a gig and wow them with this. There
isn't anything in here i wouldn't use!! although im not gonna use the whole routine, every bit
except the fism aces has gone into my various routines!! the price is well worth it, and i would
have paid an extra 10 for this at least. Greg is one of my favorite 5 magicians and i own almost
everything he has. He never disappoints!!
In the spirit of Card Stunts, Greg Wilson brings another all card DVD. I really like this DVD and
the routine that is performed in the beginning. The tricks are very well-routined and thought out.
You will have to practice, but the material is well within the reach of anyone who puts in the work.
Flashback is an awesome routine and worth the cost of the DVD alone.
This is a very good DVD by Gregory Wilson. You will learn some of his best card routines from this
DVD and some you will have to practice a lot to get down. Others you will be off and flying in no
time with. His presentations are very entertaining and will also teach you how to better present the
tricks in this DVD. This is a must have for serious card magicians. Enjoy and add to your library.
