The Sorcerer’s Apprentice


Have you seen The Sorcerer’s Apprentice? It starred Nicolas Cage as a great wizard who finds Jay Baruchel’s character Dave and takes him in as an apprentice. I think the movie came out at around the same time that Percy Jackson did, and so I didn’t get to see it in the cinemas. A few days ago, I got a chance to see the second half of the film on cable.

I didn’t have to see the entire movie to understand what happens, so I guess in a way it was a bit predictable. Also it means that the storyline could be so common that missing the beginning doesn’t have an impact to enjoying the rest of the film. But I do wonder how he was chosen? What did Balthazar see in his protégé?

I love Dave’s lab though. He’s got some cool stuff there. Not the kind of lab that has incubators and test tubes though. He’s got something a lot more cool! He was bouncing off light/sound waves and it really made good music.

I wish there was more conflict though or I was hoping that Morgana could do a little harm, but her efforts were foiled a little too soon. Oh well.

Ah, and I totally didn’t expect it was going to be funny.

Seen any movies lately?
