THE SORCERER’S APPRENTICE is a live action fantasy adventure about a science student who becomes the apprentice to a great sorcerer in order to save the world from the evil sorceress who killed Merlin.

Violence

The moderate violence occurs within the film’s clearly established fantastical world, where sorcerers and other monsters exist and can use their magic for good or ill. The strongest moments include some moderate threat to characters, such as a scene where a large Chinese dragon comes to life, a scene in which wolves jump out of a photograph and chase the hero, and some mystical confrontations, including the final battle where the villain has her power sucked out of her and appears to disintegrate. There are various fights and battles, including characters throwing magical plasma balls and flames at each other, and some confrontations between the sorcerers where everyday objects (e.g. needles) are controlled and hurled. There is no focus on realistic injury or blood. There is some violence which initially appears more realistic, such as a sorcerer punching an old lady (who is, in fact, a villain in disguise) and a scene in which the hero and his girlfriend are mugged at knifepoint in an underground station.

The film also contains some focus on electrical experiments, as the heroes use electricity and plasma to fight the villain. These are unlikely to be imitable and do not involve everyday objects familiar to young children. There is also a scene where water splashes onto some plugs but there is no focus on playing with electricity which young children are likely to copy.

This work contains flashing images which may affect viewers who are susceptible to photosensitive epilepsy.
