John & Becky’s Movie Review of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

Becky and I took Bianca and her friend Kaley to see the new movie The Sorcerer’s Apprentice today. I guess my brother took our two boys Conroy and Corban and his son’s Brendan and Aidan to go see it as well. We’ll have to find out how they liked it when they get back home tomorrow night.

The Fandango website at The Sorcerer’s Apprentice describes the movie as follows:

“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…”

The Review
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a very well done fantasy movie starring Nicholas Cage and Jay Baruchel as his apprentice. Cage’s character is a master sorcerer who trained under Merlin, along with two other sorcerer’s and they’ve found themselves in New York City about to battle for the fate of mankind.

There are some great special effects with this movie and I thought it was cast extremely well. I liked the characters and the young apprentice is hysterical as a total physics nerd trying to get a girlfriend that he lost when he was 10 years old. There are some very funny parts in the film, with plenty of action and suspense.

Don’t get me wrong, parts of this flick are super cheesy, but it’s a fun movie for the Summer and the kids really liked it. I don’t think Becky like it as much as we did, but she didn’t like Star Wars either or most other fantasy movies.

By the way, this is not the movie for the book The Last Apprentice, which is a totally different story and a great book series.
