I was disappointed with this DVD; I thought the picture quality was substandard and found that his
rambling style made what s really a three minute video into this long one. Truly not worth the
price. There are better ones on spoon bending.

I personally think "Gallerian Bend", a DVD by Erick Castle, is a great bending method that has been
revered, and is considered by many to be the ultimate spoon bend. I agree the quality of the video
wasn't all that great for sure but if you can look past this minor nuisance and see the routine for
what it really is. This one, just on sheer appearances, is a thing of beauty and a favorite among
some of the top pros from the magic community, as well.
Just the little that I have done
on my own since learning how to perform gallerian bend, indicates to me that this is a truly amazing
work that has the potential, if used exactly as taught, to help me get so much more from this small
investment. And that is what I want for myself.
Think for yourself.
Follow the instructions given by Erick in his DVD. Follow them to a T. Exactly.
Understand that most of the instructions are given to get the gist of things and to acclimate
yourself with some of the possibilities. It's not your average silverware bend, it is much more. I
mean what more can you ask for? It's completely impromptu, without a gimmick or gaff in sight, and
it's extremely visual. I simply can't get enough of it!
For what it's worth has already
earned its keep and a personal spot in my working repertoire. You've got to not allow one or two
reviews cloud your judgment. If you can overlook the rather choppy video footage "Gallerian Bend" is
still an optical illusion masterpiece and deserves your attention. I promise you that you will get
your money's worth because I feel that I have. All of that makes it easy to overlook the rest of the
The Gallerian Bend dvd is definitely not worth even the $20 i spent on the offer price. Leave alone
$30 as its actual price. Its probably worth $5-$10 for what you get. This is definitely one of those
regretted buys. Much fussing about a single move and trying to somehow STRETCH that to a painful 30
mins or so.
Its a horrible webcam video with completely muffled sound which makes you doubt
if he's actually speaking english. Yes its that bad. And if you have watched gallerian, mostly your
first guess is the right one. The rest of presentation and angles dont need a dvd as the most
elementary mind can work this out. Yes i did too, but bought it for a professional POV and ideas.
Theres nothing in it like that.
Bottomline : Its a one subtle move method. I wont even call
it a method. You need a lot of guts to pull this off bravely due to it being too simple to guess. At
this price it should have been priced at $5-$10 and as an instant download and i wouldnt have
grumbled this much.
