The Sorcerer's Apprentice

Move aside Harry Potter, there’s a new wizard in town! The Sorcerer’s Apprentice is a (reluctant) hero in the movie, which of course, battles good guys against bad guys. See how the battle ensues, and what happens in the end!

 

 

 

 

 

Review

The Sorcerer's Apprentice

It's quite a career that Jay Baruchel's conjuring up for himself.

For a guy who is thin – ok, scrawny – doesn't have idol looks, and comes complete with a nerdy, whiny voice, he's turned up in some pretty decent films (and raised the self-esteem for countless reed-thin guys).

The Canadian 'DJ Qualls' appeared as a deluded gym rat in Million Dollar Baby, a stoner who walks into the famous crowning scene in Knocked Up, and as a rookie actor in Tropic Thunder.

More recently, he was in his element as the 'romanti-comic' lead in the under-rated comedy, She's Out of My League.

Now, in a film that proves again that producer extraordinaire Jerry Bruckheimer can make movies out of anything (Pirates of the Caribbean was based on a theme-park ride), Baruchel is ostensibly taking on a role originated by … Mickey Mouse.

 

 

 

Interview
Jerry talks, we listen...

Unless you've completely cut blockbuster films out of your life, and watched no English-language television for the last two decades, you've probably been entertained by a Jerry Bruckheimer offering.

Take the last year, for instance. Have you watched any of the CSI shows? Pure Bruckheimer. Reality-TV powerhouse The Amazing Race, which recently filmed a leg in Singapore? Yup, Bruckheimer, too.

And what about popular films like Confessions of a Shopaholic and G-Force? You get the picture. His fingerprints are on almost everything, and he has an uncanny Midas touch.

Since the 1980s, when Flashdance, Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun become iconic box-office hits, Bruckheimer has established himself as the ultimate Hollywood player.
