Review - Sorcerer's Apprentice

I need some light entertainment to ease my brain...


Jerry Bruckheimer seems fair enough...as long as i remember...all his movies features actions...actions...and more actions...this one is no exception...thank god this movie is no Harry Potter movie...harry potter movies are heavy and kinda deep...somehow i do wonder how come it came out as a children's book...

Off with the movie...it started with a scene from the merlin's time...whereas merlin who had 3 apprentices...balthazar played by nicolas cage (bukan nama setan ker nieh?), veronica (monica bellucci) and horvath (alfred molina)....then we seen merlin killed by morgana after getting some help by maxim...veronica then cast a spell to trap morgana inside her body and have balthazar to trap veronica in the grimhold...just before merlin died...he gave balthazar his dragon ring and saying that someday there would be a man strong enough and have all his qualities to become the successor of merlin called the prime merlineum...aha....

Thruout the thousands of years to the year 2000...balthazar finally found the one...but unfortunately he was trapped in a vase after dave accidentally released horvath from the grimhold...and trapped he was for another ten years....fast forward to 10 years later...dave is now a physics student in the university...

Balthazar and horvath finally managed to escaped from the vase and in pursuit of finding the grimhold to free morgana in her quest to conquer the world (arghhh cliche sungguh)...horvath managed to find dave and was saved by balthazar just in time...then horvath realise that dave is the prime merlineum...he then went on to find the descendent of the morganians whom turn out to be an some magician celebrity...hurmmm...anyway...horvath with his new 'apprentice' went on in pursuit of killing dave...but been saved by balthazar over and over again...

Until the end sequence...balthazar managed to free morgana from the grimhold and was casting the spell to raise the dead evil witches around the world only to be put a stop by dave who now became the prime merlineum and dave save the world...and also he got the girl of his dream...balthazar too...owh yeah...veronica also was released from the grimhold la...happy ending...a total cliche...but it was nicely done though...

Overall the movie was entertaining...it was fast paced and give no time for harrypotter-like lengthy conversations...which i like by the way since i am opting for a really light movie...for pure entertainment...the actions was seriously cool...battle sequences in every 10 mins or so...which is great...balthazar vs horvath...balthazar vs chinese magician....balthazar vs horvath & andre...balthazar & dave vs sun lok...and many more...so there's no short of magic use thruout the movie...and physics...hurmmm...with some injected humor in between the action sequences does bring up the mood...and i think this movie is a great entertaining movie...just for pure entertainment...just put the logical mind behind and enjoy it....i enjoyed the movie...heheheh...now i wish i can be a magician...it has a lot to do with physics you know...and owh yeah...i was a physics undergrad...maybe i can be a magician...hahaha...dream on...

you forgot the part where the Dave made "Secrets" notes with the electric thingie stuff.

Disney or not, it's a hell of entertaining movie. beats the vampire-werewolf movie anytime
