Torn DVD Review

Torn is a torn-and-restored card from the mind of Daniel Garcia. It is a variation of Yves Doumergue's Ripped & Restored. The DVD quality is great and everything is clear and easy to understand throughout. He goes over the teaching very thoroughly and leaves nothing out.

The card is restored one piece at a time with very little cover. It is a cleaner looking version of Ripped & Restored in my opinion. The trick uses just a few moves and is not very hard to learn. You will need to practice to get it looking good, however.

The DVD also includes the original Torn video on it, which is basically Daniel teaching the trick to the camera just like the new teaching. It doesn't really help with anything, but it is nice that they threw it on there.

There is very little set up to this trick and it's easy to do. Overall I like this effect. It's a simple torn-and-restored card without difficult sleights. The card is freely chosen and signed, a nice touch to the trick. The reason I gave it four stars is because it is angle sensitive and it is best to perform it to one or two people who are straight on in front of you. If you want a fairly easy T&R trick, this is the way to go.

Manufacturer's Description:

In the basement of a seedy Las Vegas hotel, Daniel Garcia slowly touched two pieces of a torn playing card together. Achingly slowly, with no cover, he let go of one of the pieces and the card was restored! Paul Harris shook his head and softly muttered "If this kid is not using some kind of sticky substance, he owns me." Daniel restored the third and fourth pieces in equally miraculous ways and handed Paul the sticky substance! In lieu of Paul's mortal soul, Daniel agreed to let Paul get Torn out to the world. It really is the next great leap forward in this piece-by-piece restoration. Totally practical and even more magical than the original TV-only version With this DVD and a little work, you'll have a breathtaking magical effect you can do anywhere with any freely selected signed card.

Torn didn't just astonish Paul Harris. Daniel has owned just about every magician he has come across, and for sure every laymen he's shown the effect. Daniel Garcia's "Torn" is a must for anyone who wants to perform a truly miraculous piece-by-piece restoration.
