The Sorcerer's ApprenticeDave (Jay Baruchel) is just an average college student, or so it appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) recruits him as his reluctant protege and gives him a crash course in the art and science of magic. As he prepares for a battle against the forces of darkness in modern-day Manhattan, Dave finds it is going to take all of the courage he can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer';s Apprentice.

Critic Reviews of "The Sorcerer's Apprentice"Time OutAugust 12, 2010
Casts a superficial and short-lived spell.Christian Science MonitorJuly 16, 2010
He canâ(TM)t hold a candle to Mickey.Dallas Morning NewsJuly 16, 2010
There is much that's appealing, from the performances to the scene where Turteltaub re-creates a live-action version of the classic scene from Disney's Fantasia.Washington PostJuly 16, 2010
As Balthazar, Cage doesn't disappoint. He's just manic enough to keep the character from becoming too predictable. More's the pity, then, that a pro like him has to cede so much screen time to his character's young protege.Rolling StoneJuly 15, 2010
The Sorcerer's Apprentice should be rated U for Untouched by Human Hands.Detroit NewsJuly 15, 2010
A big gob of mythical makeover and special effects-freewheeling fun.Examiner.comSeptember 25, 2012
It's strange to have a film have so much magic within and yet ultimately not have enough of the right kind of magic to make it work.Film Freak CentralMay 09, 2011
drawing a line of lack-of-inspiration true and dire directly to Renny Harlin's already-completely-forgotten The Covenant.Movies.comApril 04, 2011
As an object to look at and be zoomed along in like an amusement park ride -- which is all it's meant to be -- this movie is pretty much more of the summery same.ComingSoon.netApril 01, 2011
It also looks quite nice with some well-designed adventure moments and clean camera work that's flashy but usually elegant. But that's a few islands of interest on a sea of interchangeable marketing parts that's all sizzle and no substance.Reel Times: Reflections on CinemaMarch 09, 2011
Whether intentional or not, The Sorcerer's Apprentice plays like Disney's stalled attempt to launch a stripped down Harry Potter-like franchise.The StandardJanuary 16, 2011
The Sorcerer's Apprentice is one of those films that feels very close to being good.
