Excellent take on a critical move Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on September 14th, 2005
Yes, Wakeman is not the most dynamic teacher on this DVD, but he IS a good, clear teacher, offering many tips as he demonstrates several effective passes. Emphasizing variations on the Hermann pass, he does a great job, showing a good variety of skills.
My only real complaint -- it's why I don't give this DVD a 5, and it's a BIG complaint I have with most DVDs focusing on a single move like this one -- is that you can't perform the routines offered until you MASTER the pass. Unless you can perform several passes while inviting people to watch your hands (rather than trying to cover the pass), the routines are worthless. Instead, I would have preferred to see some routines where the pass is a critical but not the ONLY move required for success.
Otherwise, an excellent exploration of an undervalued move.
Nice passes and shuffles Report this review

I recommend it to everyone. Some passes are very natural like everyday handling of cards. I like it alot. The DVD explains it very well with the angles of a first person view when teaching. Tons of moves included, a few are similar but great moves. The only reason why i gave 4 stars is that i dont believe i saw him smile at all in the DVD...almost put me to sleep.

I learned the pass elsewhere but let me tell you, THIS IS ONE OF THE MOST USEFUL SLIGHTS OUT THERE! Good teaching, good job penguin! A+
Good camera angles... Report this review

While Randy does teach some very good pass techniques he is extremly dull to listen to as he speaks in a monotone voice thru every explanation.
The DVD offers 3 menus which are the Demo loop, Instructional Menu and Easy learn menu. The biggest problem I have with the Easy learn menu is that there are no explanations just very fuzzy shots of him performing the passes.
All in all it's a fair DVD.

to be honest, i dont like this DVD , while it has a load of great moves in it, it's a very boring DVD to watch. also, not enough time is spent on each move, instead of 'teaching' you the move, he tells you how its done and moves on.
i was going to give it 2 stars, but then i thought, the effects are amazing, if you can learn them from this rather fast DVD. also, i wouldnt bother with it unless you're already REALLY good with cards, and already have a basic idea of pass's.
Bad Teaching.... Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on July 14th, 2005
This video has good moves on it, some of the best passes I have seen. But it doesn't teach you how to do them, just shows you the move and goes on. Of all the videos this is the worst teaching job I have seen.
Excellent Explanations! Report this review

It's a shame that the moderators have allowed such misleading reviews. This dvd explains very clearly. Each move is shown from several angles, from above the shoulders and in slow motion to make learning easier. It is true that his voice seems monotonous, but I didn't buy the dvd to be entertained but to learn. And Randy Wakeman is a true pro. Minimal talking so you can focus on very important moves. This is a must for any serious cardician and well worth the price.

I won't start yelling my head off at how amazing this DVD is because im sure you've heard it all before. In context Im a 17 year old student having done magic for the last couple of years (well the last year in essence since it took me the first year to filter the rubbish I saw everywhere and find penguin). I've used many penguin DVD's to wonderful effect, coming across the odd DVD now and then that had really horrible teaching (Xtreme cuts with Keone) or just boring and unimpressive material (lucky 7's). Now this DVD may not have explanations that rival Oz's or Jay's, but it is a hell of a lot better than others I've seen. If you are willing to pay close attention and not have everything pre-done for you like a at nursery school then there's little reason why you cannot learn well from this DVD. Besides the amount of material on the DVD is IMMENSE!!! I mean it's pretty huge from what i've seen in the past. Bottom line if you want to learn the pass from scratch then it may take more than this one DVD to get it (depending on your own natural grasp of card handling) - but if you have some idea on how the pass works or have mastered it and want to know a ton more variations on it then go for this without question - this DVD will give you passes handed down by some of the greatest magicians in the world.
Super Boring Teaching. Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 3rd, 2005
To be honest, watching this DVD is just like sitting in a boring college lecture hall. Wakeman talks too much and his teaching & presentation are sooooooo boring.
The "Pass" trick is OK, but actually, all the "Passes" are just repeating the same concept! If you would like to buy a Card Magic DVD, buy Oz's "Born to perform magic" or Jason Dean's "Cutting Edge Card & Coins" They are GREAT!! & WORTH!! Their tricks are much more interesting.
I got this DVD for FREE, luckily @_@
classic! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on October 11th, 2005
I got this on a promo deal, but after watching it I was amazed. It covers a lot of material and might be a bit quick so get ready to use the pause/rewind button alot. But if I knew that this DVD was so good , I would have bought it myself. I found numerous ways to spice up my routines. If you have already a couple of tricks you do, then get this DVD to touch up those routines and give them a bit of spice. The different types of passes covered have gotten me out of many sticky situations in bars where I do most of my tricks.
