The Sorcerer's Apprentice

I went to see The Sorcerer's Apprentice last week.

I'm not really sure what I was expecting. It looked promising but Nicolas Cage just isn't my favorite actor. Nothing personal he just doesn't do much for me. 

The movie itself wasn't too bad! It had funny moments and lots of action. It did seem to move a tad bit fast for me. At first the kid couldn't do anything and then at the end of the movie all of a sudden he was doing everything. I was like, What?

None of the characters were really endearing to me. Hence, I don't have a favorite. (Not because they were all great but because no one stood out.) If I was forced to pick I guess I would say Alfred Molina. Maybe more because of the actor than the character though.

I had no idea that the movie had anything to do with the Merlin legend. That was a nice surprise but I've been watching so much Merlin lately that I had some issues with it. Nothing huge just seeing Morgana (the Morgana I love so much in Merlin) evil and played by Alice Krige (not a fan of hers either, sorry).

I guess all in all it wasn't a bad movie but it's not going on my favorites list. Also, if you watch it there is a very short blip of a scene after the ending credits. Just so you know!
