Another movie says if you use the brain more than 10% lots of things can be done. The movie is fun but lack a lot of things. Some spectacular animated scenes made it very cool.

Disney's live-action adaptation of their own classic "Fantasia" segment comes an extended storyline for this good feature-length film with good visual effects, and starring a nice cast consisting Cage from "National Treasure" and Baruchel from "Dragons." (B+)

(Full review coming soon - with better wording probably)

Good exciting Disney film--loved the brooms scene-a parody on the Fantasia short with Mickey Mouse!

Ein guter Fantasy Streifen mit gut aufgelegten Schauspielern! Leider wird dieser Plot viel zu schnell runter gespult. Man hätte es auch noch spannender machen können. Aber dann wäre es kein Familienfilm von Disney mehr gewesen. Gute Effekte und gute Musik! Das Drehbuch ist zu seicht und vorhersehbar. Mit dieser Geschichte und dem Ensemble hätte man mehr daraus machen können!

Well acted, original and interesting story, but very predictable narrative.

The film relies heavily on visual effects which are intriguing, but that isn't enough to fill the gap of the poor script that makes the film a bit dull and lacking thrills.

Fun movie. Pretty good CGI and action. Dialogue leaves a lot to be desired. Worth a watch.

Grade = 5.5/10

While it is mildly entertaining, I feel this movie had a rather weak script, the very definition of a predictable plot, and just fails at feeling convincing, instead coming off as rather overblown filmmaking. Not quite a bad movie, but you're not missing out on much by not seeing it, trust me.

Warning:
Misogyny

Ugh. Cage is a secondary character, to some tween. They clearly has a decent graphics budget, but the acting is uniformly terrible, the plot is convoluted and whiney... Baruchel is just bad.

Mix of thriller and fantasy this is a story of wizards; Balthazar, an apprentice of Merlin is given the mission to protect the grimhold, the doll that contains Merlin's arch-nemesis witch, Morgana, but also her beloved Veronica. The one to release and eliminate Morgana would be a descendant of Merlin. Fast forward a thousand years and we get to meet in modern times a young physics student; geeky Dave ends up discovering to his surprise that he is the one to save the world from the evil plot Morgana is threading.
Another messianic story with loads of wizardry and magic, it reminds me a lot of the adventures of Harry Potter though the main character is older and North American. The whole plot is over the top and quite honestly I have never seen so much non sense in such a short time. I do have to admit that is really entertaining if you don't mind all the gaps in the story and the use and abuse of computer generated tricks. As usual Nicholas Cage is really engaging. It is just a shame that half of the times he doesn't choose his movies well.
In my opinion the film needs retouching, less lightning and thunder and a more solid story, less cheesiness and more coherent dialogues. At points it seems like the plot is secondary, a mere instrument to display the vast array of special effects.

Idk why everyone hated it so much, personally i thought it was a great movie, although quite a few cliches that may have hurt it, and the fact that Nicholas Cage is in it, he actually does a pretty nice job in this one and the main protagonist was brilliant, and the subtle funny moments aren't bad either

I find this film to be very enjoyable. It isn't "quality" film but it's one of those dopey magic action drama entertaining movies that are worth watching.

Caaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaage!

Excellent casting and lots of brilliant special effects help make this a riveting little distraction.

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" was a good and decent Disney film. The special and visual effects of the magic were cool. The story was good. Characters were decent. Parts of it were hilarious.
