I am a huge fan of the Walt Disney Movies of late. I loved the National Treasure Movies. I love action and suspense, especially when it is mixed with some comedy. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice did not disappoint. I went in expecting a great show and got what I expected and more.
Nicolas Cage plays Balthazar Black, a master sorcerer who has been charged with finding a specific boy to be his apprentice. The catch is that he doesn’t know the identity of this boy. He spends part of the movie finding the boy and the rest of the movie teaching his “apprentice” everything he can, as fast as he can. While Balthazar tries to fulfill his destiny, his days are full of adventure and mayhem that made this movie exciting and fun to watch. As the movie progresses, we meet more characters that make this movie more and more interesting. Balthazar battles Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina) throughout the movie. Their magic is presented in such a way that you are drawn right into the story. Each character is unique and has their own talents to use in ways they see fit.
Balthazar and Dave (Jay Burachel) work together to stop the “end of the world” while Balthazar teaches Dave how to be a sorcerer. Keep in mind, while they work to save the world, Dave is also trying to get his first girlfriend. This movie has a great plot and moves from scene to scene in a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat. During their adventures comedy is thrown in that will make you laugh out loud. The Walt Disney movies have no profanity in them. It is very nice to be able to see an action/adventure movie without having to listen to all of that language. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a must-see movie; make sure you get tickets before it's gone. You will be glad you did.
