The Sorcerer’s Apprentice.
We first meet Dave as a slightly less shy and geeky kid, who is desperate to get the girl but ends up in every schoolboy’s worst nightmare. That leads him to Balthazar Blake (Nicolas Cage), a master sorcerer in modern-day Manhattan trying to defend the city from his arch-nemesis, Maxim Horvath (Alfred Molina).
My family loved The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. The acting is first rate, the special effects are astonishing, the plot keeps you guessing and along with Toy Story 3 I’d say it’s one of the best family films on release this summer.
*Recommended for children aged eight and up
