Talent, skill and theory recognized, but... Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 24th, 2013
This dvd, as a standalone, is not going to prove to be all that useful. The first effect requires you to be rigged up like a marionette puppet, but only after shopping for two watches that are hard to find. Otherwise, you're doing some very serious improvising which certainly will cut into the beauty of Tommy's performance. I don't find these routines to be "workers." They certainly don't reset. You will, however, learn some great theory, a new handling of cups and balls, and a new Wild Card routine. However, some of it is paired with obscure items that you certainly don't have. I hate buying videos where I can't reasonably pick up all of the supplies or work from what I have on my own.

However, if you're just a viewer, someone who wants to know how everything is done, or how the best does it, this may be for you. I just wouldn't expect to be able to go out and do these routines. I'll skip the other discs.

There are few magicians everyone should study, Slydini, Ramsay, Vernon, and Wonder. While many of the effects on here you will not perform, they honestly only work for Tommy Wonder, it's the thinking, theory, and principles you will walk away with and use. You need all 3 volumes along with the Books of Wonder/

If you care about your magic, then I highly recommend this 3 volume DVD set! Tommy was a skilled craftsman, performer, and all around great man! He really, really thought about his magic and it shows in the effects he performs (which, by the way, he performed all his own material). He was a classy performer and the magic communinity will never be the same again.

To watch Tommy Wonder is a study in master magicianship. Wonder's thinking on magic is so nuanced, so polished and so evolved. You may look at this DVD and think, "what, only five tricks?" First, they are five awesome tricks. Some of the best, close-up magic performances ever captured. The price of the DVD is worth it just for the performances. However the value in this DVD is just not in the tricks but in the thinking behind the tricks.

Wonder is a perfectionist. Every word and movement has been refined. There is nothing left to chance in his routine. There are no wasted patter lines or movements. This is a master course in misdirection, audience management and magic theory.

First thing to note is that the degree of difficulty is quite high. However, do not let that discourage you. Even if you never perform any of these tricks, you magic will be better for having studied this material.

Of all the tricks, the Tamed Card is the most accessible to intermediate cardicians. Tamed Card is Wonder's version of the Wild Card routine. If you plan on learning this, be sure to pick up a Wild Card set. Wonder goes so far as to carry four prepared packets while doing walk around. The whole reason is to perform magic on an entirely different level - for the random spectator that is watching you perform close up magic from a distance.

The other gem on this is Tommy Wonder's Two Cup, Cups & Balls routine. This is a master course on misdirection. Even when you know it's coming, his misdirection is so strong that it is very hard for even a magician to catch. Highest recommendation!

Anything with the name Tommy Wonder is going to teach you something. I really like the two cup routine and the ring the watch and the wallet routines. Even though the set up can take a bit the response is worth all the work required. Some of his material you can not buy and will have to build or have built. One thing for sure you will love the magic of Tommy Wonder. Add to cart.

Tommy Wonder / Visions of Wonder Report this review

Tommy has done more to hone my sence of Magic more than anyone else in the Magic community. His series is the best educational tool available to those who seek to master the craft regardless of ability. It isn't only the individual tricks he explains but his terrific insight to how to manage your audience. What a shame it was to lose this master a few years ago.
