The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Nicolas Cage and Jay Baruchel leads this not so magical movie in the theaters nationwide. Yes it was a little disappointing to tell you honestly because I really expected a lot with this movie. Why in the world would you cast someone like Nicolas Cage in the first place?! Was he used efficiently acting wise?! I doubt it.
When the movie started I had a hunch it was going to be graphics wise a failure. It wasn't spectacular enough. Every bit of it was mediocre. Well the large metal animals like the bull and eagle were not. That's beside the point though because if they could get something like that spectacular the small things like plasma and fire should have been better, after all it was the staple offensive magic that they used for the film.
The magic done on the fight scenes were too small to damage anyone. The final one with Morgana was the same too. It could have been better to do a dragon ball like energy shot rather than a few fairy like electricity balls. Any person could have survived that attack. If they are planning to do a sequel with this one I'm not going to be surprised if it doesn't perform in the box office. It is just hype that made me watch this I guess plus the fact that Nicolas Cage was in it.
Would I recommend you to watch a story about a boy who is a near relative of Merlin who had 3 apprentice magic users that later on became 1) an antagonist of Nicolas Cage and 2) his girlfriend?! The answer is a big NO. There are a lot better movies out there than this one unfortunately. Maybe kids would love this but with the romantic scenes on it, I think they marked it PG13. Would it have that hype without magic or Nicolas Cage on it?! Hell no!
This only will get 2 out of 5 kumags, at least it was descent.
