Is It Any Good?

Our review:

Kids say (1 ):

Andrew Mayne offers viewers a chance to see the magician's magic and stunts, which range from the interesting and clever to potentially dangerous. It also shows how willing (or unwilling) people are to participate in them.

Mayne's efforts are often motivated by the desire to frustrate or teach people lessons. As a result, his tricks aren't always well-received by the folks he plays them on. But it's meant to be fun, and if you like magic and illusions, you'll definitely like what you see here.
