David Acer is one of our best reviewers, and we don't even have to pay him. So he automatically gets 5 stars on any review of his material. Go buy this DVD. With all of the time he spends writing reviews for you, he deserves at least that much.
The DVD is full of interesting bits of magic. Most of them are "bits", which is great for those following the current magic trend where everything is visual and lasts less than 30 seconds. David has some new ideas (at least to me) and plenty of new work on old plots and old methods.
If you want something meatier, David has a couple of full routines that are worth your attention.
I think what I liked most was that much of the magic was "situational" and had some tie with the real world.
Of course, there's a plethora of goofy video bits and performance clips. It's all part of the fun of watching an Acer video.
