Plot: An epic comedy-adventure about a sorcerer and his clueless apprentice are swept into the center of an ancient conflict between god and evil. A master sorcerer needs to find the one boy who can defeat evil once and for all, and thru the millennia he has searched. Just when he is about to give up, things start to fall in place. The sorcerer has to give his apprentice a crash course in the art and science of magic, because evil is about to be unleashed upon the world. The apprentice has other plans and uses for his new found abilities, and he seems not to be aware of how much the safety of the world depends on him.
Verdict: The cast does a good job, and the graphics are great to watch. But the story could have had more potential, because it leaves you with this feeling of, “it’s good, but it could have been much much better..”.
