Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this fantasy action-adventure, inspired to some degree by Disney's classic Fantasia, is targeted at the same audience who enjoyed star Nicolas Cage's National Treasure movies. Like those movies, The Sorcerer's Apprentice has plenty of thrilling action sequences boosted by special-effects magic -- some of which may be too scary and/or intense for kids under 8. There's swordplay and electric blasts, and characters are threatened with peril and even death. But underlying all the action is a positive message about being true to yourself.

Sexual Content

Couples kiss.

Violence

Most of the violent sequences are larger-than-life in nature, given the film's fantastical premise, and there's not much gore. A swordfight takes place in a store in front of a frightened child; characters are electrocuted by energy blasts; characters threaten to kill each other; people are shown impaled on swords; a woman stabs Merlin.

Language

A few exclamations of "hell" and "God."

Social Behavior

At many different points in the film, the message that comes through loud and clear is that believing in yourself is essential to success ... and that betrayal is an act that not only damages others, but yourself as well.

Consumerism

Labels visible for Reese's, Golden Grahams, and an Emerson appliance.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

A college guy talks to his roommate about partying and living it up.
