The Sorcerer’s Apprentice (2010)

When a fairy tale takes you away, you really enjoy it. The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is such a fairy tale. There are these good guys that are really good and those bad guy which are really bad, so your mind is at peace for two hours, without trying to balance behaviors plus and minuses in people’s attitudes and words: isn’t that nice and relaxing?!

Acting is good: Jay Baruchel as an apprentice plays unexpectedly well as a new actor besides Nicolas Cage and Alfred Molina.

Jon Turteltaub has directed in the past the Phenomenon which was a really good film belonging to another class of movies, the ones that say more than just the two hours one sees. So, special effects at their best, speed and unexpected situations make The Sorcerer’s Apprentice a nice movie you will enjoy provided you go there to see an unrealistic adventure at its best.

My rating: 08/10

PS. One thing I forgot in the initial post: the film has stollen from Fantasia the realization of “the Sorcerer’s Apprentice” part also dressed up in Paul Ducas‘s music of a piece with the same title. Seems they did not have enough material to complete the movie!
