The Sorcerer's Apprentice Reviews
07.14.10 by REELZ
The trailer for The Sorcerer's Apprentice is so frenetic we feared the movie might be an equally chaotic mess. For some critics it is, for others it's not so bad, and a few even really like it.
"...manages to hit every mark and gives us a rare blockbuster that should please viewers of all types."
— Luke Y. Thompson, E! Online
"...isn't bad as these things go. It's more diverting than the National Treasure movies, which, like this one, were produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, were directed with aggressive impersonality by Jon Turteltaub and starred Nicolas Cage."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...It's all sugar and caffeine, no nutrition. In place of a plot, there's a premise; in place of carefully crafted action, there are stupefying exercises in computer-generated imagery, and in place of an ending, there's a hook for the sequel..."
— Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times
"A noisy, f/x-spewing cauldron of a movie..."
— Justin Chang, Variety
"A tired relic of summer-movie cliches ... Apprentice lurches from one been-there-done-that sequence to another."
— Kirk Honeycutt, Hollywood Reporter
