Matrix is a must Report this review

The DVD starts with the creator of the Matrix effect, Al Schneider, demonstrating and teaching the routine in his own words. The basic matrix routine is simple, yet striking. The magician positions four coins in a matrix (square) pattern. The magician then covers the four coins with four cards. One at a time, the coins magically gather under a single card.
Degree of Difficulty is Moderate to Expert. This really is a powerful effect that even a beginner can pull off with some practice. You really need a soft surface to work with though. I would suggest purchasing a close-up pad from a magic shop or on-line magic retailer for under . The pickup move that is required for all matrix routines is assisted by a little give in the surface.
Al Schneider created this trick when he was just 17 years old showing that even a young mage can dream up magic that will stand the test of time. Schneider teaches the basic routine including the basic pick-up maneuver in great detail. Al covers some subtleties that he believes makes the effect more powerful. After a thorough explanation of his routine he covers some of his personal history of how it evolved. Then he goes on to show other pick-up maneuvers that have been magicians have came up with over the years. The DVD could end here and it would be worth twice what I paid (). Great stuff!
So do you really need to learn 11 versions of the same routine? Of course not. However you'll find a cornucopia of matrix ideas and moves. If you watch closely, you will also discover dozens of moves and ideas that you could incorporate in other non-matrix coin & card tricks. For example, even though I really didn't like Ammar's version of the matrix, he teaches the Marlo Spider Vanish and some nice timing and misdirection elements. A much better version of the spider vanish that I had learned. As with all L&L Publishing DVDs that I have purchased, this is an outstanding value and resource.

I always enjoy the World's greatest magic series. You get to see a variety of takes on a a limited theme, from a variety of performers. This one is no exception. Matrix is a magician favorite as well as an audience pleaser. Nothing exceptional is in any of the routines. My favorite is Dan Harlan's for his sorority girl / slasher film presentation. If you have ever wanted to learn the matrix then I would recommend this DVD. If you already perform a version you aren't missing out.
