The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Walt Disney's, The Sorcerer's Apprentice directed by Jon Turteltaub and staring Nick Cage, Jay (the sexiest nerdy Canadian hands down) Baruchel and Alfred Molina hit theaters today. :)

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.

This movie is truly a fun, summer, family movie that all ages can enjoy. Of course special effects galore throughout the film (well duh plasma bolts aren't real, and flying statues) but its all in good fun. All the actors pulled this movie off, giving the storyline a feeling of creditably. Just a side note from me: Nick could have taken his character a little further on the looney scale (loved his NY cop, lol. "I was in character."), just my take on it, but all in all well done!

Classic scenes from Fantasia are mixed into the film for all those of you who loved the original movie. Car chase scenes where pretty amazing, some new ideas pumped scenes with fresh air. Not the same old same old seen it a million times. And come on Puppies! Who can resist some cute little pups? hmmm? Not me!

Overall this is a sure hit with the fam or friends, PG rating but don't let that stop you thriller-killer people it's worth the ticket price.
