Product Description

Product Description

Magic is everywhere in Disney's THE SORCERER'S APRENTICE -- the fun family adventure from the creators of NATIONAL TREASURE. Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a modern-day sorcerer with his hands full defending Manhattan against dark forces. When a seemingly average kid shows hidden potential, Balthazar takes his reluctant recruit on a crash course in the art and science of magic to become the ultimate sorcerer's apprentice. Experience more extraordinary thrills, heart-stopping action and spectacular special effects than you can imagine as these unlikely partners show us that the real world is far more magical than we ever knew!

Who doesn't wish they could unleash fire from their fingertips and make mops come to life? The Sorcerer's Apprentice enjoyably captures this fantasy as a young physics student named Dave (Jay Baruchel, She's Out of My League) learns that he's the inheritor of the powers of Merlin--and suddenly finds himself in the middle of a war between two of Merlin's protégés, Balthazar (Nicolas Cage) and Horvath (Alfred Molina, Spider-Man 2). The Sorcerer's Apprentice is a special-effects blockbuster--but it's a pretty good one, not reaching the charmed heights of Pirates of the Caribbean but so much better than Prince of Persia. It runs out of air toward the end, but before that it's jauntily entertaining, with capable dialogue, clever curlicues of plot, and most importantly delightful performances: Cage maintains a light touch, with enough eccentricity to be interesting but not so much that it derails the momentum; Baruchel continues his nerdy hero streak; supporting performances from Toby Kebbell (RocknRolla) and Alice Krige (best known as the Borg Queen from Star Trek) are comic and creepy respectively; Monica Bellucci (Shoot 'Em Up) and Teresa Palmer (Bedtime Stories) are mostly eye-candy but likable nonetheless; and Molina, as ever, is the best thing in the movie, playing silky villainy with effortless aplomb. All in all, good fun. --Bret Fetzer

5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Dr. Joseph Lee #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Dec 3 2010
Format: Blu-ray Verified Purchase
Video: It was 1080p 2.40:1. The overall picture quality was quite stunning, with sharp details. One could see the individual shapes of the confetti dropping from the sky in the Chinatown scenes. I originally had very low expectation for this film. But I was pleasantly surprised that the film was actually quite entertaining. There were actually many clever and funny lines in the dialogue. I thought it was also clever that Disney inserted the scene where the Apprentice (Dave) misused his power, ending up flooding the laboratory and all the mops out of control, similar to Mickey's mishap in the Sorcerer's Apprentice in Fantasia, with classical music to boot. (4.5/5)

Audio: The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 was very well done. The sound effects were also very well recorded, where music bounced from front to lateral to rear speakers. Of course, the bass was also very strong, especially in the Dragon/Chinatown scene. (4.5/5)

Overall, it was an entertaining 109 minutes, with action from start to finish, with interesting story-line. Both video and audio presentations were solid. The special effects were well done. Also, thanks to Disney for putting the subtitles within the picture frame (for those with anamorphic lens). This is a movie for the whole family to have fun. Highly recommended.

Dave, a typical New Yorker, was 10 years old when he met Nicholas Cage the sorcerer, and learned that he is the chosen one and that Cage will teach him all he knows about doing magic. Then Cage gets magically locked away and Dave doesnt hear from him again until he is in University. After this begins Dave's adventure as the sorcerer's apprentice, learning from Cage all the magical things and finding out that there is another magician, an enemy who wants to "take over the world" basically. And Dave is the only one who can stop him.

The Disney movies are always very well done, with awesome actors and amazing effects - this movie is no exception. The story line for this movie is interesting at times an at times a bit boring. The action is cool and fun, the actors are great and Nicholas Cage plays a good sorcerer. Dave's performance was also good but his character at times was unsure of himself and thought he couldnt achieve anything, which after a while, gets irritating. You feel like you want to jump into the movie, smack him and tell me "you can do it!". The typical messages for kids - believe in yourself, if you're ordinary and a bit geeky you can still get the girl and achieve great things, stuff like that.

Overall, the movie was a fun watch, i wouldnt watch it again. But it is a good family movie to watch with the kids.

Format: DVD
Ten-year old Dave Stutler's ordinary day takes a turn for the weird when, during a class field trip, a note to him written by the girl he likes, Becky, blows away on a breeze (before being picked up by a dog, a cyclist's tire, etc.). Dave chases the note, which inexplicably travels all the way to a strange shop called Arcana Cabana, where it gets sucked through the mail slot. Inside the shop, Dave finds himself face-to-face with master sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage), who has been searching for the Prime Merlinean (Merlin's successor) for millennia. Merlin's dragon ring binds itself to Dave's finger, meaning that Balthazar's long search is finally over; but when Balthazar goes downstairs to retrieve the master spellbook that Dave will need for his training, Dave accidentally knocks over the Grimhold; a nesting doll which imprisons, layer upon layer, evil sorcerers who follow Morgana le Fey, Balthazar's most formidable enemy of all, who is imprisoned in the very first (bottom) layer of the doll. The Grimhold's topmost layer cracks and releases Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina), who, along with Balthazar and a third sorcerer called Veronica, were once Merlin's trusted proteges. Balthazar and Horvath magically battle in the shop, frightening Dave out of his wits. Balthazar succeeds in imprisoning Horvath in a large ceramic vase that will hold him for 10 years, but unfortunately, Balthazar is imprisoned as well. Dave escapes from the shop, throws the Grimhold into the street, and tries to forget everything he's just seen.

Fast-forward ten years, and Dave (Jay Baruchel) is now a 20-year old self-proclaimed physics nerd who gives lectures at the downtown NYU campus and has a huge lab off-campus where he experiments with Tesla coils.

Love the music, Nicolas Cage at his best, And like the fact that his apprentice dos'nt look like a model... American movies have the bad habit to take only "doll" looking actors... this one is very good and he looks like real people...
