Film Review: The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I'm sure after repeated viewings, this movie might loose some or even all of the original magic that made it so much fun to watch. But I don't really care at this point. I just think Jerry Bruckheimer is an absolute genius to combine the calm and cool onscreen personality of Nicolas Cage and the decidedly not of Jay Baruchel. Who is,  lets face it, a nerd.

But a nice guy, who has a few clever tricks up his sleeve to woo the girl of his dreams, Aussie actress Teresa Palmer in the role of the love interest. And that's before the special effects, magic tricks, call them what you like, turn it into a rollercoaster ride and Alfred Molina appears as the bad guy. For those who haven't seen Mr Molina portray the role of Doc Ock in Spiderman 2, he is the best stereotypical evil character I've seen for a while. You know its a well played role, when you start supporting both sides.

Its funny, a massive thrill ride and not the most realistic movie of all time, but you forgive it, with all its failings regardless.


  1. Today's quote comes from another movie, similar because it too is a thrill ride with witty and hilarious one liners.
