Thanks Betty. Glad you appreciated it. :)

Actually, I bought this very cheaply on Amazon on the strength of other reviews. And it really is well made little movie made by a solid anchoring performance by Nicolas Cage, a truly great performance by Jay Baruchel as the Apprentice (he will surely have to be a future star) but marred by the worst villain performance I've seen for a long time by the guy that gave us the best comic book villain of all time (Doc Octopus): Alfred Molina.

3.5 stars from me (out of five) but great fun throughout (if you pretend you're not actually an adult).

In my opinion the best performance in the movie came from the little scary witch girl from Salem :mrgreen:
Unfortunately she wasn't allowed to stay long enough in a PG movie.....she was creepy. The other villains were, yeah, not too impressive.
