Reviews:
3 stars out of 5 -- "Cage, with long hair and a cheeky attitude, dominates the proceedings with a quirky sense of fun and authority, while Baruchel plays his geeky side and generally succeeds. Best of the bunch, though, are the villains, particularly Molina..." - 07/13/2010 Box Office


"The director, Jon Turteltaub, and his several writers devise some clever set pieces, such as a dragon in a Chinatown parade that starts breathing smoke and fire..." - 07/14/2010 Chicago Sun-Times


"[Cage] is at his most charismatic...the CGI is spangly fun..." - 07/23/2010 Entertainment Weekly


3 stars out of 5 -- "THE CG magic certainly pops and crackles, and offers New York as a fantasy-realm as dragons spit flames in Chinatown and a Chrysler Building eagle takes flight." - 09/01/2010 Empire


"[The effects] rival that of HARRY POTTER, LORD OF THE RINGS, and every other modern wizard blockbuster." - 11/30/2008 Premiere
