A partially cliched 'Pirates of the Caribbean' style adventure that has it's share of fun action. If there were more use of the 'dagger' and less quick editing and CG, then I may have given it a higher rating. Worth a rent just for attaining an older swashbuckling feel.

There are some entertaining moments in this movie, for sure. It isn't to be taken serious at all and, sometimes, the cheesiness and hammy acting and set pieces are frustrating. Ben Kingsley is one of those actors who will take any paycheck, good or bad, it seems.

This movie was far better then I thought it would be. As far as video game movies go this one is bar far the best of the bunch. This movie has a solid plot and solid acting. The pacing of the plot was very well timed lasting long enough to keep you interested and into it but never going on for to long. Are there some cheesy moments? Of course there are, there are lines that are laughable and some scenes that are just doofy, but the movie keeps you entertained and thats overall the most important thing. If you come into this movie expecting the next cinema classic then you will be disappointed but if you are expecting an entertaining action movie then you will be happy you checked it out.

"Prince Of Persia: Sands Of Time" by Yojimbo

A prince of ancient Persia discovers a mythical blade that can turn back time and uncovers a plot to usurp his father and claim the throne. Prince Of Persia is a Disney financed summer blockbuster that was clearly a somewhat cynical attempt to mimic the success of the POTC franchise but actually manages some success as an entertaining swords and sorcery adventure. Jake Gillenhaal makes a surprisingly good swashbuckler and he and Gemma Arterton make for an attractive couple, Alfred Molina is an amusing comic sidekick and the format of a combat platform game lends itself to the current fashion for parkour style action very well. The dialogue is unimaginative but serviceable and the likeable cast keep things fun and interesting for the duration. What prevents it from being a good film rather...

Revolutionary!

I only went to watch this film so I could spend some time with my brother and because Jerry Bruckheimer produced it, but wow was I blown away! It was an awesome experience entirely and every single person on earth should watch it. The plot is original and moving, but the execution is phenomenal. Where in modern society can you still watch a film that is brilliant,but does not contain nudity and profanity? Trust me it is a nearly impossible task. This film however is certainly it! I was captured mind and soul by the amazing story,cast and effects. I have never seen its equal anywhere and am convinced that an equal does not exist. The actors are natural and convincing and Mike Newell truly made an amazing film. Jerry Bruckheimer is a producer who ought to be seen and appreciated, he truly b...

Prince Proves a Video Game Can Be a Decent Film

I've already expounded on my thoughts on video games-turned movies, and I was hoping Prince of Persia would finally buck the trend. While this won't completely erase the bad memory of so many other failures, it is a good step forward in my book.

As a summer film, Prince of Persia delivers exactly what I want: lots of action, plenty of great effects and interesting, if not so well-developed, characters. Like many other summer films, it was also pretty predictable on plot and story.

Jake and Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton are very pretty people and they make a pleasant enough bickering couple - the orphan-turned prince with amazing parkour skills and the outspoken, proper princess. Since this is Disney chesty Jake is only chesty for a short time, and don't even thing about sexual chemi...
