Plot: Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It'll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Runtime: 109 mins Release Date: 13 Jul 2010
Do yourself a favour... watch it If you liked National Treasure you'll like this (by MC1-1)
This was a great movie.YES... magic is physics!!! They tie this in nicely.Yes... they managed to avoid those dreary love scenes which often detract from the story... while still having the bad guy and a the good guy fall out over the same girl.Plenty of magic... including an interesting take on the famous Mickey mouse as the sorcerers apprentice... scene where all the cleaning equipment goes nuts.Enjoyed the good looking girl who saw enough in the hero to be attracted to him.They did a really nice job tying all the chronology together including setting the scene for how our hero got to be the <more>
chosen one... and how his confidence around girls got to be so bad. Really loved the cool antique Rolls with the sporty performance. It was little touches like this that made the film engaging.In the end it was a knowledge of science that did in the bad guys... not the magic. Nice touch!!! This film was great fun... in the vein of National Treasure. Do yourself a favour and watch it.:-
Today has looked. With the same pleasant I left only after "Watchmen" in respect of huge pleasure from viewing . As a matter of fact, all film represents a huge respect to Disney's classics.In the majority of scenes considerably, Jon Turteltaub concerns a material with a pure love, presented fairy tale, not another "Transformers: revenge...". Jokes are suffices, but that pleases especially, all of them is decent, apparently today such it is impossible. Actors and their characters are placed right, so that is good. About special effects now to write incorrectly, as <more>
I saw this movie at the world premiere and I had the pleasure of congratulating Jay and Nicolas on this great Disney achievement. I have always been a big movie goer since a young age and enjoy a broad range of films. As of late Disney has not brought forth any movies I have loved till now, and between Jerry Bruckheimer, Nicolas Cage, Jay Baruchel, and Alfred Molina the movie had great chemistry. The music and the fight scenes have Jerry Bruckheimer splashed all over them can be compared to Pirates of the Caribbean . As for Nicolas Cage, many people I spoke with before and after the movie <more>
didn't believe he could pull off the roll of a "Sorcerer," yet his perception of Balthazar Blake as a wise, cunning, determined, witty, heart broken wizard gave the movie such positive energy and strength. Jay was perfect as Dave bringing his classic, nerdy, innocent character, to the table as seen in many of his other films. His character represents Disney's persona of good, and paired with Cage's interpretation of Balthazar there is a plethora of hilarity,and anticipation. Alfred Molina playing the apposing force, Maxim Horvath, provided the movie with just the right amount of darkness to cater to the younger and older generations. Through out the movie Molina's character, Horvath, has a twisted mix of respect and hatred for Cage's character, Balthazar, and the two of them feed off the energy very well to create a great amount of conflict and excitement. These conflicts help detract from the typical corny air that many Disney movies have, because they usually cater to a younger audience. The Sorcerer's Apprentice does cater to a younger audience, but also provides enough action, suspense, and humor to cater to those of the older generation, making it a great family movie. So to anyone who is questioning whether or not to see the film I highly recommend it!!! It is a great modern spin of the Disney Fantasia classic with, comedy, action, suspense, and romance, that makes it appreciable to all. Between the awesome cast, Jerry Bruckheimer, and Jon Turteltaub, the movie represents the real meaning behind the magic of Disney.
The kids & I were trying kill some time while Mom had a baking party at the house so we went to this with zero expectations. I was very pleasantly surprised. Nicolas Cage does a great job at the sorcerer who is looking for the "Prime Merlinian". He is the sorcerer who will inherit Merlin's powers. Our hero David is of course that person. The fun is in Cage's ability to be annoyed with the kid and like him at the same time. The CGI is enough to enhance the story but not overwhelm it. All four of my kids ages 4-11 liked it. Some parts might be a little scary but not <more>
too bad a dragon clomping around is all . Fun family flick.PS I also liked that the hero held a door for a girl. I pointed that out to my boys who need to learn that.
I'd give it and 8.5 if I could. I loved this movie, my only problem was it seemed to go by too fast. That was probably in my head but I hope they release an extended edition on DVD. It was funny, it was interesting and it was action packed. Although some of the plot wasn't exactly groundbreaking, it wasn't the parts that counted. Romance can only get so revolutionary. The action was great coupled with the special effects made it highly enjoyable. I loved the bit with Merlin and am looking forward to a sequel. I recommend this movie for teens and preteens, but maybe not for adults. <more>
It was darker than most Disney films, which I enjoyed but it may still be too childish for some adults.
Easy charming fun - perfect summer fare (by archravenstorm)
The same people who to me are surprisingly rudely negative about this film would probably say I'm too easily pleased, but I enjoy movies as escapism for the most part and see no need to pick this very enjoyable vehicle to death. Actually, some early negatives I'd read had me worried that I would be irritated I spent the money, instead I've already decided to buy this when it comes out.Overall, I'd say if you like romping easy movies like The Mummy, National Treasure, and Lake Placid you'll like this, plus refreshingly without being sickeningly sweet there is not one <more>
swear word or sexed-up scene, so take the older kids and Grandma. I thought Nicolas Cage was excellent, he looked great and can wear a leather duster better than most, and there was some nice chemistry between Cage and Baruchel. Alred Molina looked like he was having fun and is such an enjoyable villain. Baruchel does a good job - he is so geeky at times it is a tad painful - and I found myself rooting for him. The 2 main female characters are lovely and appealing personalities.More pluses: A lively pace and I never lost interest plus a fair number of laughs. Some interesting character twists with the oily young rock-star magician helping Molina, and some very funny cheeky nods to the original animated Fanatasia - watch for the nod to Star Wars. Great and interesting special effects that made sense when they were used. Even the way the actors moved when they were doing magic was very good for some reason the wand-waving in Harry Potter sometimes reminds me of people using a flyswatter or shaking a bug off a stick, that didn't happen in this film .So no, this isn't some classic of cinema, it is what it is and is a bit thin here and there, but it's also quite good for a "magical romp" and is in no way a bad film or a waste of money. I could have done without the occasional background songs which seemed designed to emphasize romantic angst or appeal to young teenagers, but that was bearable. I saw this at an early evening show and there were not many people in the theater, but we all laughed and there was applause at the end, and we left the theater smiling. Personally I think the critics panning this are full of BS or are trying to prove what intellectuals they are. In the meantime see this with your family or take your friends, and then go out and get some ice cream and sit outside and enjoy summer. Hope they make a sequel, too.
Dueling sorcerers, a compelling back-story, top-notch acting talent, and the Disney brand bring the idea born of Fantasia's Sorcerer's Apprentice to the big screen in a live full movie adaptation. While this film did not fully live up to its potential, it is a fun movie which will find its way into the collection.This is silly and sappy just like any other live action Disney movie, and if allowed, will worm its way into the heart in a disingenuous way. If you view this film expecting Casablanca or the Godfather, you WILL be unimpressed. But if you go in expecting to be entertained, <more>
you shouldn't be disappointed.The action sequences between Cage and Molina aren't elevated as much as many would expect, due to the story centering around the kid's battle, not Balthazar's. This is another standard Disney formula wherein the kid is undeserving, unprepared, and uneducated in the ways of the Samurai but is thrust into the center of the fray, regardless. Those who would rail against this formula, obviously weren't there to see a Disney movie.All in all? The five of us ranging in age from 45 to 15, loved it. It is clever, and creative, marrying the science of magic known by today's standards with the arcane stories of our past. I found it intriguing and adventurous enough not to be preachy, while still managing to educate even the most unwilling movie goer.It rates an 8.4/10 from...the Fiend :.
Jay B. is funny and charming in a believably nerdy fashion; Cage is at his quirky but charismatic best; the effects are plentiful and top notch; there's both a tragic love story and a young cute one plus a healthy dose of clever references to Disney's epic Fantasia from which this film is partially inspired . If you read this list of attributes and it caught your interest and like the idea of centuries old sorcerers doing battle across New York in spectacular fashion then it wont matter what any other review says, you're going to want to check this flick out. It's funny, the <more>
