The Sorcerer's Apprentice

It's the coolest job ever


The Sorcerer's Apprentice
Inspired by the 10 minutes battle between Mickey Mouse and the enchanted broomsticks in Fantasia, this Jerry Bruckheimer/Disney cgi-fest is hoping to kickstart a new franchise. The storyline is a typical hero-vs-madman for control of the world (or New York, which may be the same thing). A young man is taken in for training by an ancient wizard, and reluctantly learns the arts of magic. When he foolishly releases the baddie from his enchanted captivity, the stage is set for several special-effects-heavy battles as the fate of the world hangs in the balance.

110 minutes.
No persons under 10 (Violence).

eye Weekly
Melody Lau quote iconThe Sorcerer’s Apprentice may not reach the cult status of past wizard films, but it is a reminder that spells and magic can be as appealing as handsome, shirtless werewolves.

ScreenIt
C. Fuchs quote iconWith the lack of true, onscreen magic being the first and foremost among them, The Sorcerer's Apprentice feels like a cheap (albeit expensively produced) card trick that fails to impress.

Tomatometer quote icon It has a likable cast and loads of CGI spectacle, but for all but the least demanding viewers, The Sorcerer's Apprentice will be less than spellbinding.
