  Absolutely nothing magical about it

| | See all RJNeb2's reviews (703)

They somehow contrived to spend $150 million on this elaborate wizardry spectacle. Rest assured, very little of that was spent on the script or character development. Instead, it's all about special effects - which while effective are nothing ground-breaking. This is the kind of movie where the nerd hero lives in a tiny apartment in New York but yet somehow has a subterranean lab that's roughly the size of a car park. If you can handle that kind of illogicality and the fact that it's all relentlessly predictable, then this could be just the ticket for you.

  Once again.

Producer Jerry Bruckheimers name above the film's title used to be pretty much a guarantee that I was gonna enjoy whatever was on offer (Beverly Hills Cop, Bad Boys, The Rock, Enemy of the State, Con Air, Armageddon, Crimson Tide, Gone in 60 Seconds, Pirates of the Caribbean 1 & 2, National Treasure 1).
But of late that Guarantee doesn't seem to be as consistent as before ( Bad Boys 2, Deja Vu, Pirates of the Caribbean 3, Prince of Persia, National Treasure 2) and now this half baked Special Effects Action Fantasy with his fave Lead Actor Nicolas Cage.
The Movie is a disappointment from the word GO, the characters and the Story didnt engage me, I didnt care about either.
Sure it looks slick, and the effects are all spot on, but it just lacked that extra touch, that pulls you into the movie.
Acting was ok, Nicolas Cage looked cool in his get up, Alfred Molina was much better in a similar role in Spiderman 2, the rest of the cast was so so.
Come on Mr Bruckheimer,stop playing it so safe with the family crowd, get back to OTT Action Spectacles like Con Air, The Rock and Armageddon.

This film really surprised me. Bit more dark humoured then most disney films but the special effects really help bring the film together. Fantastic on blu-ray and a joy to watch

  Magical family adventure

| | See all philboy4's reviews (152)

Great fun for all the family from the Disney crew. With good casting but Nicholas Cage stands from all of them as the good Balthazar Blake. But what good is a hero without a nemisis which is played very well by Alfred Molina who are both Merlin's apprentices. It is set in the present day where Cage is looking for the sorcerer who will take control of Merlin's dragon ring. And he finds Jay Baruchel, he now has to learn the skills to become the next greatest sorcerer and stop the evil Morgana.

  ' family fun from the 'disney' studio's'

like the previous reviewer i am a 'nicholas cage' fan, have followed the guy since the fabulous performances in films like 'the rock' 'face/off' and 'con air'
i also like my 'disney' have followed their films for as long as i can remember.
this film has a great 'story -line' idea using the legendary 'merlin' link to create it's beginnings, bringing the tale up to present day status as 'balthazar' after hundreds of years completes the task his dying mentor 'merlin' had entrusted him with.
the task to find 'merlin's' heir and destroy the dark forces which would end life on earth.
the film is full of brilliant 'special-effects which will please you, the family should enjoy it's 'disney-magic'

  Great film for all the family!!

This was an excellent movie. A great remake from the original in 2002. I am a fan of Nicolas cage. And this movie is just another reason why. He was once again as usual superb. Made the film from good to great. Also Jay Baruchel .. and very unknown actor did an outstanding job. And deserved of much credit for this film working.
As a whole it was put together in a great fashion for all the family to enjoy, with laughs, good action scenes and things that just made you go WOW im giving this a 4/5 and definitely recommending this for all the family.
