Reparation by John Lovick (DVD) This is the ULTIMATE Torn and Restored Card! A spectator signs a card, you rip it into fourths, and then restore it PIECE BY PIECE. Magic doesn't get more visual than this!
Price: $29.95
In stock: usually ships within 24 hours!


FINALLY HERE! In this long awaited DVD release, John Lovick (Handsome Jack) covers every detail: the handling, motivation, timing, subtlety and psychology. Nothing is left out!

Thorough explanations and over-the-shoulder camera angles ensure you'll master this routine in no time.

PLUS, as a special bonus, you'll see how good this routine really is under real world conditions - John performs the Reparation at the Magic Castle in front of a live audience.

This captivating creation has become the highlight of John's act. The routine will take some practice to master, BUT it's the easiest PIECE BY PIECE restoration of it's kind.

"I've learned the "others" and they're very good, but they make my fingers tremble and ache. The Reparation much much easier and 'do-able.' In a nutshell, this is one that will become part of your working repertoire."

Complicated but worth it Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on April 2nd, 2010
This is one of my favorite torn/restored card effects ,and it is especially powerful for stage and parlor magic. the peice by peice restoration is beautiful without too much slight of hand. the only draw back is the complexixty of the routine in the sense of memorizing all the steps, but once you get it the trick will flow nicely

I want to start out by saying that this trick does require a lot of practice, and I mean a lot. Once you've got it down though, you've got one of those rare pieces of magic that will last in a spectators mind for a long time. When they see their signed cards ripped up and then restored, it's just incomprehensible. If you are thinking about getting a torn and restored routine, think about getting this one.

Very good! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 18th, 2012
The method for this T&R is really good, although I prefer Yves Doumergue's Ripped & Restored. Mr. Lovick is actually quite funny (totally opposite of my first impression) in performance. Although the mechanics will require some practice, this should be within the range of intermediate magicians.

Nice reparation effect. It is semi impromptu. Some setup is required, but no gadgets, gimmicks, or anything extra. I can't be specific without revealing the method

The method is simple. It is a tad bit sensitive to angles in that people behind you can catch you flashing. This can be easily fixed by modifying the handling. Lovick may have mentioned it in the video

I watched it two or three times and was able to practice on my own without after. It's not that the effect is that simple or amateurish - the effect would belong in a professionals repertoire - but the teaching is that good. He is clear concise, and humorous

Get this if you need a T&R effect in your arsenal. I own a lot of DVD's and books on magic and this is one of the better ones out there. It is a one trick DVD, but if you want to learn this effect, this DVD will do the job very well

Extremely practical version of the T&R theme Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 21st, 2004
The "Torn and Restored Piece by Piece" theme is certainly not new, but many of the routines out there are either too difficult to do or too impractical in one way or the other. John Lovick has done an amazing job simplifying such a routine. The moves are not difficult, and you can focus on your presentations and getting great reactions from your audience. This video was previously available on tape, now the DVD version will serve as a valuable reference in your performance repertoire.

Great, but will need practice. Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on December 31st, 2004
Thsi is great! I recently got this on videotape. And I must say I love it. It is also easier than many versions of the peice by peice restorations out there however wil still require alot of practice time before it's ready to perform for live audiences.

Thanks.

Best torn & restored Report this review
Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on January 14th, 2005
The great thing about this torn and restored is that you have the spectator sign the card. This, in their mind, creates a unique card that cannot be replaced. The knock on effect being that when they see their signed card as quaters being fused together it cements the idea of a miracle in their mind.

I got this on VHS two years ago and it has been in my routine ever since.

This is a truly exceptional peice of magic but it does require a LOT of practise. You will not be watching the video one day and performing the next, this trick requires dedication but it is well worth it.

In all very powerful magic, but not for the faint hearted.

This is one of the Torn and Restored products I own, and it is not my favourite. Although this is a piece-by-piece restoration, I didn't feel that it was that strong and only for stage magicians.

However, John Lovick's comedy presentation of the tearing of the card is great.
