Review: The Sorcerers Apprentice

Master sorcerer Balthazar Blake recruits a seemingly everyday guy in his mission to defend New York City from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath.

Nicholas Cage as one of Merlin’s Apprentices and Jay Baruchel as the dorky New Yorker who turns out to have a magic in his blood. The movie is an action packed fun movie from Disney, with lots of magic and entertainment. I’m not the biggest fan of Nicholas Cage but he sometimes does a good job, with this movie its pretty fun but the bad guys aren’t developed enough so that you really hate them, and Jay plays the dorky character perfectly. It’s great when you have a character to direct your hatred towards but Maxim Horvath was more on the entertaining side, the magic was fun but not the greatest movie but I left the movie entertained.

The Sorcerers Apprentice – Trailer

Synopsis:

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.

Now this is a movie I want to see, Nicholas Cage plays the quirky sorcerer and Jay Baruchel plays the unwitting apprentice. Fun, Magic, Monsters, and lots of adventure what more could you ask for, it seems Disney are coming out with some pretty good movies with this one in the list.

Review: Knowing

An MIT professor is lost his wife in a tragic accident and left to raise his son on his own. At his son’s elementary school they dig up a time 50 year old time capsule and his son recieves a letter with chilling predictions. As it plays out these are related to tragic events that will take place, only he is left to unravel the remaining mystery. Its an action packed movie that you really don’t expect from Nicholas Cage, I didn’t expect the movie to turn out this way. I thought it was going to be more a science fiction movie, but it had its scary parts and I was freaked out, which I really did enjoy. A really enjoyable movie that turned out a lot different then I expected, and a lot of people would enjoy it.
