About the Film: 
A fun, modern-day adventure follows Dave (JAY BARUCHEL), just an average college student, or so it
appears, until the sorcerer Balthazar Blake (NICOLAS CAGE) recruits him as his reluctant protégé 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.

My Take on the DVDAs a Disney fan, this movie was fun. I always like fantasy and this movie merges fantasy and reality well. he movie was a bit predictable, but it was fun anyway. This movie was one that, though it was two hours in length, went by quite quickly. Much was because of the plot was fun and engaging. There were some great effects and I have to say that there were definite times when I wished that I too had some of the Socerer's powers... I mean how cool would it be to be able to be able to throw plasma balls from my hands!
