David Blaine: Fearless

"Very Good"

David Blaine: Fearless Review


America's #1 freak-out magacian, Blaine takes his parlor tricks on the road in this compilation of scenes from the best of his three TV specials. Some of his card tricks and other effects are nothing short of astonishing -- the best being when he asks a stranger to think of a person, then reveals a tattoo of her face on his stomach.

Or when he asks a man if he has any wishes. The man replies he would like to win the lottery. Blaine hands him a few bucks, tells him to buy some scratch-off tickets, then directs him to scratch away. Minutes later the man is holding $1,600.

While the levitation trick is tired (and pretty easy to do), and "think of a number between 50 and 100" is simply stupid, some of the tricks here are just plain baffling. Unfortunately, it all culminates with the ridiculous frozen-in-a-block-of-ice stunt, which isn't magic or even sleight of hand. It's just plain dumb.
