This is a great DVD and gives a real in-depth look at the classic force. Paul also covers a few other card techniques, like the top palm. He reviews the technique and talks about everything that is possible to happen with the Classic Force, and how to get out of it. Paul is a great teacher, and the camera angles are perfect on everything except for one technique. This is a must have for every card magician, weather you think you know the Classic Force well enough or not. The extra routines Paul includes are good, but they are not quite my style. They are not very comical, but can be made comical.6 of 6 magicians found this helpful.
I'll give a quick overview:(out of 10)
Just a quick note, if you are new to the Classic Force, this will take time to practice and understand. It's a basic concept, but you will need to practice many many times on friends and family.
Hope this helped make you buy this product.

This is one of the best videos I've seen. The shots CLEARY show what is happening. No shaky camera work as is often the case. No attitude, as is also often the case. Paul actually shows real-life examples which include how to deal with un-cooperative spectators. This is rare. Overall, this is a great video. I'd recommend it to folks never before exposed to the classic force. I'm going to order all of his other videos :)3 of 3 magicians found this helpful.
entertaining and informative Report this review

I put the word entertaining first because he makes learning this very fun. I think all of these types of DVD's need to include lots more street experience on them. The subjects are nice to watch for one thing. :) but I was searching for the classic force to go with another trick I am dissecting and1 of 1 magicians found this helpful.

Paul Green is well known for his mastery of the classic force. This DVD is the best place to learn. Paul teaches all the nuances so that you can go out and be confident with this sleight.1 of 2 magicians found this helpful.

OK,I am not going to give a review, as much as a testimonial. I knew what the Classic Force was before getting this DVD, but would never ever try it because it seemed like such high odds not to work.
I watched this DVD, went directly out to the other room where there were three people. I really had nothing planned, not even patter. I was forcing the powerful Ace of Spades. I asked my wife to pick any card out of the spread, and she grabbed the Ace of Spades, I was amazed, it worked. She was amazed I knew what card she picked. I kept testing it and asked a second and third person to pick a card out of a spread fan. They hit the Ace of Spades all three times.
They were surprised and even checked the deck, but I was as surprised as they were because it wasn't something I thought I would attempt as part of a trick.
Footnote: I have not tried it again since I did this a few days ago, kind of because I hate to risk losing my 100% success rate with the Classic Force.
But this Force does work.

THIS DVD IS REALLY GREAT, THE EXPLAINATION IS DONE VERY WELL. THS RENFORCES A MOVE/S FOR THE CLASIC FORCE. I WOULD VENTURE TO SAY THAT FROM BEGENERS TO PRO THE CLASSIC FORCE IS ONE OF THE BACK BONE OF CARD MAGIC. PAUL GREEN IS A GREAT THEACER AND A MASTER OF MUSIC.
SO THE BOTTOM LINE IS BUY IT, GREAT FOR REFERENCE IN YOUR COLLECTION.
THANK YOU PM
for me, this the work Report this review

Currently out of stock, and I know why. When they have it again, order it and get several tricks that do not require a force, such as Chaos, Jeff Kaylor's Card to Wallet, Equilibrium, just to name a few. This will give you plenty of opportunities to practice, and you will be well armed for those times when it doesn't work. The first part of the process you can practice by yourself, and I recommend you do.
All the way up to the moment of picking the card, practice all that a hundred times or more by yourself, then practice doing it on people with your "non-force" tricks until you gain confidence. You will become unstoppable.

Its good. I needed to know a few extra things to make a large routine work and added this to the techniques. Get it. Learn it. You'll have one more thing in your toolbox to use.
Somewhat pricey but a solid resource Report this review

Generally clear instructions on how to perform the classic force, in terms of spread speed, movement of body and hands, psychology. However, I was surprised that Paul Green did not speak more about positioning of the force card (eg little finger position, how much of the card should be exposed, etc).
I also began to find his performing style grating and smug. Shame, because he clearly has good technical skills and some highly effective tricks.
