IMDB Movie Review only 6.3? I don't agree!
I went into this movie knowing virtually nothing about it. I knew Nicolas Cage was in it, and that was it. Now, I like Nic Cage, he's alright by me, but can he be a convincing wizard? Certainly. The apprentice I think was the guy who did the voice in How to Train Your Dragon. He sounds and looks like a whiny geek, and that's how a wizard should be, so I am not complaining. In summary, it's in the modern day, begins during the time of Merlin, he trains 3 wizards, and ones bad, one's trapped, one's good and ones a displaced wimp. The story and acting is good and there is alot of magic and stuff, all of which was well done. I was entertained, I didn't get bored and I thought it was cool and one of the BEST PG films in a long time. I commend them for that. I looked forward to watching it again with my family soon, as I recorded on VHS...sike! I'll make some comparisons, better than Percy Jackson and the Olympians and the later Harry Potter movies. Now, if I were picky these days, which I am not, I've lowered my standards, I'd say the Wizards were all way to powerful as they were able to do whatever they wanted with no apparent limitaitions. Still, it made for a creative and cool movie for all! Buy it, rent it!
