The Sorcerer’s Apprentice

The Sorcerer’s Apprentice provides a special-effects-laden break from the inclement summer weather. With only a callback to Fantasia as a connection to the eponymous character, The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a big, loud, summer popcorn flick.

The plot felt a little loose to me but did its primary job of providing a framework for the special effects. Alfred Molina stole the show with his performance as the antagonist. Nicholas Cage surprised me in his role of the mentor, fitting it very well. Teresa Palmer had a believable prettiness that did not detract from the story. Jay Baruchel brought his trademark whingeing, which I don’t enjoy so much, to the role of the budding hero. The score from Trevor Rabin matched the film very well.

I recommend The Sorcerer’s Apprentice for those looking for a summer diversion for the kids.
