I own, or have owned almost every Sankey video to date. These are my new favorites. The effects are easy to accomplish, but blow people away. I didn't see one effect on the video that I didn't like.
Sankey the great!! Report this review

The material on this DVD set has some very strong items. It also has some incredibly weak items. That's OK though. They all can't be winners. The stuff that is strong is incredibly strong. X on DVD is the only way to be performing the invisible deck. If you use an invisible deck you should be performing this. It makes perfect sense. From DVD 1 my favorite effect is What If? I love this routine it is powerful, logical and totally unexpected. I have been using it for years.
Overall you can't go wrong with this series. If you are a fan of Sankey you will be a fan of this series.
A great collection! Report this review

Sankey's Secret Files:
Overall: A great, great DVD. Every effect you see on here will have you going, "Why didn't I think of that?". Below every effect there is a number out of 1-10, 10 bieng the best effect.
Carbon Paper: A super effective and strong bar trick. You will perform this. It is perfect for walk around as well. 9.5
What If: Pretty easy to figure out for a layperson. Not the greatest trick, but pretty darn good. 8.0
Strong Medicine: Killer ending, and the borrowed bill this routine makes use of really adds a lot. 8.5
Selective Memory: This is Ok... I wouldn't use this as a closer, it is more of an opener, but it isn't that strong. 7.0
Outsider: Really, really good. I have invented and toyed with almost every color changing deck out there and this is one of the best. 8.8
Black Market: Again, not to strong, but a nice method. 7.6
Penalty Box: I personally did not like this because he has used this move on so many other DVD's. Pretty much the same method as well. 7.0
Sweet Bread: Make a few changes to the method and you have a heck of a trick here. I love the concept. It is almost like a... Copper-Silver Transpo except with a sugar packet and a borrowed bill. 9.0
180 Degrees: The best triumph routine I have seen in years. Method is cool too. 9.3
Chameleon: This is one of those effects that will make you smile. The concept is ingenious. The method is great. Overall, this is one of my favorite effects on the DVD. 9.5
Sensations: Really, really nice. A lot like an ungimmicked Killer Key though, except without the coin. Method is a little... iffy... 9.2
Signed, Singed & Delivered: I don't like this one, because every time I have performed this, people know what is going to happen. They are not astounded because they get ahead of me, and I don't really like the structure of the trick. 6.5
Remote Control: I personally would not perform this, but it might be for other people. This is pretty... well... clished. It is a very old move used to reach a very old climax. The kicker at the end does add a lot to the effect though. 7.0
Nomad: Not very good. Heat Therapy on International Collection is better. It accomplishes the same effect just as visually, just with a much easier method. 5.5
X: I have never liked the invisible deck. Many of you might use this, but you have to trash the invisible deck. If you do this handling, it will limit you to two effects on this DVD that you can do with your invisible deck. Otherwise, I would stay away. 6.5
Found Money: Almost identical to Shake and Bake on FRS. I personally like Shake and Bake better. 7.0
Midnight Special: I am absolutly in love with this trick. This is so great! It is incredibly versatile, incredibly easy, incredibly strong, and allows anyone to be creative. The method is very, very ingenious, and the plot is very simple yet it has the power to convince anyone you have supernatural powers! 9.6
Tunnel Vision: I do not like this Matrix Routine as much as others. It doesn't feel as clean, nor as good. There really is no theatrical hook either. My favorite version of the Matrix is Dan Fleshmans. 7.3
Fedex Change: Clished plot, clished method. It isn't really... well, any different from any other transpo. I would go with Nailed! by Jay Sankey if you want a Two Card Transposition. 6.0
The Wave Load: This is a very useful utility move, it is just taught on so, so many other DVD's of his. Mercuring, 45, and so many more. 9.0
Ditto: I like the simplicity. It is impromptu, and it has a lot of power. A really, really cool version, plus it is very, very easy to do. 9.5
Over The Counter: A post graduate course of Thread Work. He tells you you have to do a lot of stuff to the "props" that you really don't though. 7.8
Spontaneous Combustion: This is my favorite routine on the DVD. It is really, really, really easy, makes everyone think you are a master card worker, so very magical, and very, very strong. The kicker at the end is great, and it adds so much to the effect. Everyone will perform this. 9.7
Healer: A nice T&R. Almost reavealing though, the method is. With a little bit of work, this is a great piece of theater plus a nice version of T&R. Very visual. 9.2
Classified: I like it, just never gotten around to doing what this requires. 7.5
Hope you liked my review. Overall, I would rate the DVD... a 8.5. It would not be my first purchase, but it was only 30 bucks on Sankey's website at the time, so it was definitly worth that. It would have still been good if it were 60 bucks. So yeah, I reccomend it.
I loved every minute of it Report this review

Sankey teases you by performing all the tricks in a row, THEN sharing the methods after the performances are done. I just about knocked myself out on the wall trying to take guesses at the techniques used for his magic in this video. This is my favorite Sankey Video. Period. If you cannot find at least 6 tricks on this video you like... That's impossible.

Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on August 20th, 2004
This DVD set may be what you have been looking for. Jay gives instruction on 25 tricks. My ability as a performer has GREATLY improved due to these DVDs. Don't hesitate, buy this DVD set. Many of these tricks could have easily been sold separately but by buying them in this DVD set you will help you save a tremendous amount of money. These DVDs will not disappoint you. Of course, you will not use all the tricks shown in this DVD. However "Classified" trick can help you not only to get hired as a magician but could help you get hired for any job. If I could give this a higher rating than 5 out of 5, I would.
Awesome! Report this review

Wow!!! thats all I could say when watching him perform his tricks. Sankey is a great magician and he is very funny. Even if you don't do the tricks that he teaches it is still fun to watch him perform them.
