This is a very beautiful trick and as close to real magic as you can get. Hopefully I'm not giving
away too much but as with all tricks which involve IT you are restricted a little bit, but in this
case I personally don't mind because the effect is so great!

This routine is simply beautiful and makes people gasp. It requires a lot of practice to make it
seem effortless - if it doesn't look effortless, you're doing yourself (and this routine) a
disservice. I practiced for 2 weeks.
Everyone who has seen me perform this is astounded
when the real rose appears in a flash of fire (you will need flash paper). It really is a magical
routine, simple in its concept, but requires preparation and practiced execution.
with the other reviewer who says you are limited in how you can move, especially where you can place
yourself, but these limitations can be overcome by building the right gear and right jacket, or if
you don't have those, then simply by operating in a known "secure" space such as a stage, a corner,
or a bar where you are not surrounded. Ends clean.

This is the ECACT same routine that David Copperfield has used in his shows and on TV:
Kevin teaches all the nuances that he
personally taught to David Copperfield so that anyone can learn this timeless classic!

i just attended a Kevin James lecture where he presented this and thoughts and history of the
technique. in the gala show at the event, he picks a young (5-8yo) girl to perform the effect with.
brings a tear to your eye. sweet and fun all at the same time. i will definitely be working this
into my routine.

It is a new dvd, made of an old dvd. Zo there is old material and new (added) material. And there is
overlap between them, little bit boring. So it is not 5 stars for me.
Ok, it is a great
routine, well explained.
If you want to learn this routine, it is a good dvd.
