THE BEST DVD OF IT'S KIND!
(5 out of 5 stars)
"If i could give this 6 stars, I would. Hands down, this is the best Magic/Illusion DVD ever. It has all of David Copperfield's most incredible illusions. I've had the pleasure of seeing him live a few times, and nothing sums up his career better than this DVD. Not only does it feature his greatest illusions, it also has a ton of extras. It has audio commentary by the man himself, television trailers, facts on Copperfield, a tour of his museum, and much more. It all adds up to over 2 hours of bonus features. You can't beat that with a stick. Whether you are a fan of Copperfield or just love illusions and magic, this is the DVD for you."

"This is art of magic and illusion at its very best - unparalleled - creative, daring, heartwarming. The majority of this DVD presents 15 years of David's stunning grand illusion - disappearing Statue of Libery, vanishing a train, vanishing an airplane, walking through a Great Wall in China, levitating, flying, and much more ... even the viewers disappear and reappear. There is also some sleight-of-hand magic and a lot of extras - including a brief visit to David's Museum of Magic.
Among his many brilliant ideas and hard work, I was delighted that he has also initiated a "Project Magic" - intended to teach simple magic tricks and help develop dexterity in people who are disabled as adjunct to their treatments not only to help with their therapy, but also to help enhance their self-esteem."
DAVID COPPERFIELD ON DVD!!!!!

"WOW! This 2-HOUR PLUS DVD showcases over 20years of the best magic the world has ever seen! Jam-packed with Special Features included a FEATURE LENGTH audio commentary by Copperfield Himself! Do not miss this!
David Copperfield has appeared in 18 televised specials since 1977. He has done one every year until 1995, with his 18th one in 2001. He has vanished a jet airplane and the Statue of Liberty, and walked throught the Great Wall of China. He's escaped being chained underwater, escaped from alcatraz, has survived a tornado of fire and going over niagara falls! In "Illusion", experience the best of the best! Funny, astonishing, entertaining, and awe-inspiring!
David has never released any of his 20 year magic history on any video or DVD. This is the first official release. Hopefully his first 18 1-hour specials will be realeased in a box-set soon! There are some TV specials found on e-bay from Singapore but in poor quality VCD. However this "Illusion" DVD has crystal-clear audio an video!
Copperfield uses no camera tricks, and does all illusions filmed live in front of a live audience (up to 10,000 spectators!). Copperfield today still goes strong, performing over 550 times a year in his worldwide tours! Up to 3 times every day! You will see here exactly what you would if you were watching live at one of his shows!
