By: Jared Counts, July 08th, 2010 12:00 AMMild-mannered physics nerd Dave (Baruchel) finds himself embroiled in an age-old battle between two sorcerers named Balthazar and Horvath (Cage and Molina). When Horvath tries to free the imprisoned dark witch Morgana, Dave must face his destiny and fight to save the world. Most likely extrapolated from the segment in Fantasia by the same name, the Sorcerer's Apprentice is more fun than I expected.
