Storyline

Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage) is a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina). Balthazar can't do it alone, so he recruits Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel), a seemingly average guy who demonstrates hidden potential, as his reluctant protégé. The sorcerer gives his unwilling accomplice a crash course in the art and science of magic, and together, these unlikely partners work to stop the forces of darkness. It'll take all the courage Dave can muster to survive his training, save the city and get the girl as he becomes The Sorcerer's Apprentice. Written by Walt Disney Pictures

Goofs

When trying to explain to Dave the difference between sorcerers and humans, Balthazar says that humans use only ten percent of their brains. This is a popular urban legend, and is completely false. But Balthazar only asks, "You've heard that humans only use 10% of their brains?" He NOT stating that error, he's merely asking David if he's heard of it. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Narrator: The war between Sorcerers was fought in the shadows of history, and the fate of mankind rested with the just and powerful Merlin. He told his secrets to three trusted apprentices: Balthazar, Veronica, and Horvath. He should have trusted only two.

Dorky guy gets the girl
13 May 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie depicts how a guy who has been picked on most of his life can rise up and be a hero. Jay Baruchel is perfect for this role. His mannerism and quirkiness was a perfect match for this lead. Picking a hunky actor would have been an injustice for what this movie was all about. I rarely buy a movie but this pic was so endearing that i had to have a copy. In addition the music was perfect - especially the ending song Phoenix burn by Alpha Rev. If you enjoy endearing characters along with special effects and excellent role casting then i highly recommend this movie. get the Blu-ray edition. I found a dual disc version on Amazon for $15 delivered.
