Product Description

Magic is everywhere in Disney's The Sorcerer's Apprentice-the fun family adventure from the creators of National Treasure. Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a modern-day sorcerer with his hands full defending Manhattan against dark forces. When a seemingly average kid shows hidden potential, Balthazar takes his reluctant recruit on a crash course in the art and science of magic to become the ultimate sorcerer's apprentice. Experience more extraordinary thrills, heart-stopping action and spectacular special effects than you can imagine as these unlikely partners show us that the real world is far more magical than we ever knew!

5.0 out of 5 stars A story 1,000 years in the making... July 18, 2010
Format:DVD
Dave was your typical ten-year-old until one fateful afternoon on a field trip when he passed a note to his crush. The note was swept up in a gust of wind and through a series of odd coincidences ended up inside a shop. It was in this shop that Dave met Balthazar, who informed Dave that he is a sorcerer.

Fast forward ten years and Dave is now a socially inept physics geek. Balthazar reenters Dave's life and tells him he needs to begin his training. Dave quickly realizes he's caught up in a centuries-old rivalry that could result in the end of the world- and he is the only one who can prevent it. Balthazar quickly tries to train Dave so they can battle the forces of evil that are trying to destroy the world.

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is an exciting and entertaining film for the whole family! It has a little of everything in it- action, magic, humor and romance! The characters are funny and interesting (everything from geeky Dave to the greatest wizard ever known, Merlin). The content is family friendly so you can enjoy it with the kids, but it's exciting enough to be a great movie for adults as well. I enjoyed the acting, and everyone did a spectacular job! There were quite a few familiar faces- Nicholas Cage is fantastic (as always) and Jay Baruchel once again shows that he is a pro at portraying the painfully awkward guy! Alfred Molina is also present, and plays a great villain! There are also many new faces- Toby Kebbell is showing us that he is an extremely diverse actor, one moment he's playing a rugged Persian prince and the next he's an egocentric magician!

One of the things I love about this movie is that Disney gives a nod to some of its past endeavors (Hint: think of a character by the same title and you'll have an idea of what I'm referring to).

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of fun from start to finish! July 18, 2010
By Lee
Format:Blu-ray
If you think a good movie is filled with clever humor, rollicking adventure, innocent romance and good actors you will be sure to enjoy The Sorcerer's Apprentice.

It's just good movie making, well paced with just the right balance of great characters, charm, action and fantasy, Disney did a fine job with this one. A satisfying story and one of the better movies of recent years. Kids and adults will be entertained.

If you think a good movie requires F-bombs, vulgar jokes and low-life characters you may be disappointed.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not Citizen Kane, but lots of fun! July 15, 2010
Format:DVD
My only quarrel with The Sorcerer's Apprentice was that it was too short to fully develop some of the characters (avoiding spoilers here). Otherwise, it's a fun summer romp with one of the best car chases I've seen in a long time. The story is about Balthazar Blake's quest for the Prime Merlinian. As one of Merlin's three original apprentices, it's been up to Blake to find the person who possesses the potential to achieve Merlin's magical prowess. He finds nine-year old Dave, but there's a ten year lapse in their acquaintanceship. When they finally meet up again, Dave is a nerdy NYU physics student. As the reluctant Dave's apprenticeship begins, there are obstacles in the form of Maxim Horvath, his tattooed sidekick Drake Stone and Dave's burgeoning love affair with Becky. There's also the evil Morgana Le Fay who plans on world domination if given half a chance.

The cast is small but strong. Standouts are Jay Baruchel who keeps Dave's nebbishness from caricature, Alfred Molina whose Horvath has a nice sense of entitlement and Toby Kebbell's Drake Stone. I've had a love/hate relationship with Nicholas Cage for a while, unbeknownst to him. At his worst, he's depressed and weird, at his best, he's warmly eccentric. I'm happy to report that in this movie, he's the latter and makes Balthazar sparkle.

The plot is not especially original, but does contain a couple of twists, focusing more on relationships than on the actual magic though there are some pretty cool special effects. Deep, this movie isn't, but it is fun with some wonderful comic moments, not the least of which is the homage to Paul Dukas' original music as illustrated in Disney's Fantasia. The movie borrows from some other famous franchises, too.

3.0 out of 5 stars Entertaining, If Not Very Original, Family Picture August 19, 2010
Format:DVD
Sometimes inspiration comes from unexpected places. If I remember correctly, not many people thought that a Disney theme park ride could be a huge hit franchise, but Jack Sparrow, pirate captain in the Caribbean, turned out otherwise. So it is only natural that Hollywood studios have made a new fantasy adventure film "suggested" by "The Sorcerer's Apprentice," eight-minute segment of the classic animated film "Fantasia" released in 1940. Well, the beloved Mickey Mouse tale is actually based on Goethe's poem, so why not make another one?

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" starring Nicholas Cage as the sorcerer Balthazar Blake is a pretty well-made, if not very unoriginal, family-oriented adventure film. It is good clean fun like Cage's "National Treasure" franchise and in fact "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is helmed by Jon Turteltaub, director of two "National Treasure" films.

Skip the lengthy introduction about Merlin and three apprentices. Mostly set in 2010 New York City, the film's story is in short about the battle between the good magician and the evil one. Nicholas Cage is a good magician Balthazar, and Alfred Molina evil one Horvath. The evil magician wants to destroy the world as it is. The good one wants to stop it. The bad one enlists the celebrity "magician" Drake Stone (Toby Kebbell). The good one trains a college student Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel) as his apprentice.

Set-pieces of the magical battles are enjoyable, all finished with first-rate CGI techniques, but some interesting characters (Drake Stone, in particular) are sidelined by the action, and Monica Bellucci as Merlin's apprentice Veronica has little to do in the story.
