The Sorcerer's Apprentice Review

Synopsis:

Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake must find and train Merlin's descendant to defeat dark sorceress Morgana la Fée.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010) is directed by Jon Turteltaub (3 Ninjas (1992), National Treasure (2004)) from Disney. Disney spared no expense giving this film an estimated budget of $150 million. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is an entertaining magical adventure.

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice stars Balthazar (Nicolas Cage - Leaving Las Vegas (1995), National Treasure (2004), Moonstruck (1987), Kick-Ass (2010)) as the good magician guarding us against the evil magicians Morgana Le Fay (Alice Krige) and Horvath (Alfred Molina). Merlin (James A. Stephens) trapped these evil magicians 1,300 years ago, but Balthazar cannot defeat these evils. He waits for the arrival of the Prime Merlinian, an all-powerful magician who comes in the form of Dave (Jay Baruchel - RoboCop (2014), How to Train Your Dragon (2010), How to Train Your Dragon 2 (2014), Million Dollar Baby (2004), She’s Out of My League (2010)).

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice takes the viewer on a trip of magic and wonder. I have to admit; I am a fan of these films and the visuals compliment the amazing scope of the film’s grandeur. Nicolas Cage acts like Cage usually does, but it fits the role. Cage going at it with Baruchel is hilarious at times. I have to admit it, this film lost me a few times and had me watching the time a few times, but the action scenes pulled me back. This movie is a nice film to watch with children and watch their eyes light up with excitement as they are exposed to one of the better magic themed movies in recent films.
