The Sorcerer’s Apprentice—Generally inoffensive but routine fantasy adventure about an ordinary New York City college student (Jay Baruchel) who discovers he is the long-prophesied heir to legendary magician Merlin’s wonderworking skills, powers he struggles to master under the supervision of a good wizard (Nicolas Cage) so he can aid in the fight against an evil sorcerer (Alfred Molina), though his pursuit of the gal (Teresa Palmer) he has loved since childhood proves a constant distraction. As directed by Jon Turteltaub, the special effects-driven proceedings — which include unbloody battle scenes too intense for tots — fall well short of movie magic. Extensive stylized violence, brief scatological humor. A-II — adults and adolescents. (PG) 2010
