The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Pity the poor boomers who bring their kidlets to the multiplex expecting a remake of Walt Disney's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice!" Mickey Mouse is nowhere to be found and the only tip of the hat to the animated classic is when our hapless hero sets brooms and mops to work...and we all know how THAT turns out!
  • Jay Baruchel ("How to Train Your Dragon") is a physics major in college, still trying to live down a traumatic event ten years earlier when he was humiliated in front of the girl on whom he had a crush.
  • Teresa Palmer ("Bedtime Stories") is that girl...who has a phobia about heights.
  • Nicholas Cage ("Kick-Ass") is the sorcerer. (With all his property doesn't he own a bathtub or shower? Yuck!)
  • Alfred Molina ("An Education") is a rival sorcerer, who at least is well-groomed and suave.
This is Computer Generated Imaging from the convoluted beginning right through to the slam-bang end. Lots of totally unrealistic car chases, lots of sword play, lots of blowie uppie stuff. I liked it though, when that big bronze bull comes to life on Wall Street.

In my opinion, Jay Baruchel gets handsomer with each successive movie. He is developing nicely...Hmmm...
