"Almost" and "wants to be" should never precede the word "epic" ... (feels like) the coolest stuff is being saved for later (sequels.)

The Sorcerer's Apprentice is essentially what would happen if The Mummy took a wrong turn at Hogwarts and ended up at a Dungeons and Dragons convention.

The non-stop action almost drowns out what might have been a decent screenplay...
August 13, 2010
For my next trick, I will make the sequel disappear!
August 13, 2010
Promises tongue-in-cheek thrills but doesn't quite deliver.
August 13, 2010
No amount of fireballs or car chases are able to stop the whole thing being really boring.
August 12, 2010
Casts a superficial and short-lived spell.
August 12, 2010
Fun for 20 minutes, remorseless thereafter...
August 11, 2010
I wouldn't exactly recommend it, but let's just say you could certainly do worse.

As a contemporary fantasy, it is more holiday filler than summer magic, but the cast does its best to bring all the clichs to life.

The skills of Master Nicolas Cage are strong, but they cannot save The Sorcerer's Apprentice.
July 23, 2010
No magic here.
July 22, 2010
There is exactly one element of the film that's of any use whatsoever: Nicolas Cage is absolutely on fire, bringing 1000% to a role that does not require, justify, or reward such effort.

Because the story has been around for so long, it's easy to forgive director Jon Turtletaub for having difficulty finding a fresh take on it.

"The Sorcerer's Apprentice" is more frustrating than it is bad--there's a lot of potential here, and if the writing had been more inspired, this could have been a strong comeback for both Cage and for Disney.

'The Sorcerer's Apprentice' is not magical. It isn't humdrum, either.
July 17, 2010
Is any of it memorable? Hardly. I remember the contours of my theater seat better than I recall the particulars of this cinematic sleight of hand.
July 16, 2010
Nicholas Cage is fun, but the rest of the movie lacks vision, style and dare I say it - magic.
July 16, 2010
He can(TM)t hold a candle to Mickey.
July 16, 2010
This loud, disjointed concept is one of the summer's major disappointments.
