The acting was good. I personally think Alfred Molina is one of the most underrated actors in Hollywood and does a good job as the main villain in this film. Nicholas Cage also brings a fun energy to the role of Balthazar, plus is goofy and funny lines and facial expressions. Dave is a horny college student and will let your mind run away with what can happen to a sorcerer's apprentice when he should be learning about shooting plasma bolts out of his hands and instead thinking about lovely lady lumps!
The basic story involves Merlin's three assistants (Balthazar, Horvath and Veronica) and their struggles after Merlin is killed by the evilest of all evil, Morganna (Alice Krige). Of course, that murder happened hundreds of years ago and poor Balthazar has been on a global search for the only sorcerer's apprentice who can save the world in case Morganna is released. Now since Veronica (Monica Bellucci) sacrificed herself to capture Morganna, it is really important to Balthazar (Cage) that he find this apprentice who can also help revive Veronica, who is his one true love. The bad guy is Horvath (played well by Alfred Molina). He is on a mission to release Morganna so she can destroy the world and choose him as her assistant.
Actuality, the Sorcerer's Apprentice is a well done film filled with an engaging plot, humorous dialogue, great acting, and superb effects; the recipe for a good movie. I'd recommend this movie for anyone in their early teens and older, especially guys even though most girls will probably like it just the same. While it does have a few flaws here and there, but I still feel as though this movie is a worthy of a 4 star rating.
