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

Dave playing the songs on the Tesla Coils is actually impossible, but he actually stated that he was only trying to generate plasma, not that they were plasma coils. Therefore, the music played by the Tesla Coils can be justified. See more »

There is a very brief (30 seconds or less) scene at the very end. SPOILER: The scene opens in the store Arcana Cabana, where we see the Mickey sorcerer hat under glass, then Horvath's hat, followed by a hand (Obviously Horvath, since we see his cane as well) picking it up and a roach left behind.

i watched this film with my family one Saturday because it was on Sky Movies and it looked like it might be good.
We sat there watching it, but that was it. The effects were good, but that was the only thing good about it. The main characters got on my nerves, The story was OK but not great.
I was expecting something better, I am a huge fan of the Fantasy genre, even if Fantasy and magic and everything gets dragged into real-life surroundings, only with magic powers or a few monsters to allowing it to be classed as 'Fantasy'.
I've watched the Percy Jackson film on Sky Movies, and I nearly enjoyed it as much as I enjoyed the book series. If there are books of this, I won't bother reading them, the film was bad enough. I say that, I admit I made it to the end without shooting myself in the head. It wasn't so bad I felt I had to switch it off before my head exploded with putting up with the annoying characters for about 2 hours, I could sit there and watch the whole thing. Not watch it happily or entertained, I could just... watch it, feeling indifferent. It's not good, not bad...
Personally I'd only say watching this if there's nothing else on TV. Don't waste your money on a DVD, it's really not worth it. Only watch it if you're bored and there's absolutely nothing to do.
Doing chores and cleaning are more fun than watching this.
