Film Review: Prince of Persia



Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films present: Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time.

An epic action-adventure which is based on the video game of the same name. This was another movie that felt like it was made for the sake of it.
The story line is not amazing (see plot summary below) but this is not expected in such a film. The visual effects were good and did add to the film. The problem was that throughout I felt they didn’t do anything spectacular and stayed very safe. Don’t get me wrong this was a good movie to watch, it had everything from a beautiful girl and the storyline was dramatic enough. It just felt this was a movie that was made “because it could have been made”. It seems it’s very fashionable at the moment to adapt video games to the big screen but I have yet to see anyone really add anything worthy to the already established world as set out in the video game version. This film is enjoyable and is very easy to watch but don’t expect to be utterly amazed or even amazed. More than a “that was good” and I’d be surprised.

I was a bit upset with Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal). His accent didn’t quite work well in this movie as he had a fresh American accent. It made him stand out a bit too much, not in a good way. Tamina (Gemma Arterton) was amazing but I think her performance was let down a little by Jake Gyllenhaal. This movie actually reminded me a bit of another Disney picture, Aladdin. Overall a very watchable and enjoyable film – but plays it too safe to really leave anyone ‘wowing’ about it.

Plot Summary

Taking matters into his own hands, Tus orders an attack on the sacred city and upon its fall Dastan encounters the beautiful Princess Tamina. When King Sharaman dies under mysterious circumstances shortly after, and Dastan is accused of his murder, he flees with the princess on a harrowing mission to clear his name. Learning from Tamina the true motives behind Alamut’s invasion, Dastan must embark on a perilous quest to stop an evil mastermind’s plot for ultimate power with a mystical weapon that can control the very fabric of time.

Rating 6.8/10
