17/12/2011: The Sorcerer's Apprentice [2010]

Been watching the Movie Network the last few days, and while I can't remember the last time I watched a Disney movie, The Sorcerer's Apprentice contained quite a few names I recognized. Nickolas Cage appeared as another rendition of pretty much the same character he plays in every movie, the dark mysterious and misunderstood good guy/badass. Jay Baruchel however stars as the lead or "the apprentice", and as always plays quite the odd and dorky character. Teresa Palmer, plays the Stutler's love interest, and has appeared in quite a few other bigger pictures.

The movie was interesting in attempt to explain magic in relation to science, although still implausible the attempt at an explanation was a nice touch. The CGI magic of course is always fun, with fire and lighting racing across the screen. Also along with the magician/sorcerer territory always seems to come the same style of related props. My favourite always being the hats, and the classic leather duster.
