Dynamo--It's Neat, Yeah?
21 August 2013 | by See all my reviews

Dynamo is a professional street magician going from place to place in America or UK performing slight of hand, card tricks and an occasional stunt or two with a bunch of monologue in between.

The tricks that he does are very fast, clever and well performed.And you can tell that almost all the tricks that are done are as authentic as possible(without cameras and inside actors)just by the audiences gradual reaction and left in stairway thought. This is a factor that gives Dynamo a major advantage over other magicians*cough* Cris*cough. And I find Dynamo himself comes off as a very relate able and likable guy.

With that being said, Here comes the big question: Is he the next Cris Angel? Um No. I can't help but feel that there's still a long way for him to go to get that level of recognition. Many reasons for why he's not yet.

I don't want to sound mean but Dynamo sounds like a name too big for this guy, his tricks are good there nothing crowds have seen before. And I don't really sweat about the whole "this has never been done before factor," but what really holds Dynamo back is not his repertoire but his showmanship.

Dynamo comes off as awkward and uncharismatic, with ending all his sentences with a question(yeah?) and just bad set ups to his audiences. I think the show's production also hold's him back as well: instead of expecting music and camera work that comes off as thrilling/climatic It comes off as if I'm watching a Youtube commercial.

However all nitpicking aside, I find Dynamo a very skilled and watchable magician. If magic is an interest of yours than you definitely might want to take a look. Personally, I'd give it a 5/10.
