Most of the time, when I read a review, I wonder if the person has any credibility that is writing the review (ie: do they see a lot of movies and have discretion or are they the occasional movie goer). I have been an avid fan of the film industry since I was a kid, and I own over 700 movies. There’s my cred.

Do not listen to the crackpot at the bottom of the page. I have not only played every Prince of Persia game, but I was a serious doubter in the video game to film adaption of this (kept replaying the nightmare that was “Doom”). I was extremely surprised. I am not a Jake Gyllenhall fan, but I am a Bruckheimer fan. And, I am, for the most part, a Disney fan. Apparently the reviewer at the bottom cant accurately critique a Disney film, because he doesn’t even appreciate what was “Pirates”.

Prince of Persia delivers in every way imaginable, and reminded me why I loved going to the movies in the first place. Is Jake Leo DiCapprio in a Scorcese film? Of course not. Is the movie realistic? Of course not, its a DISNEY FANTASY MOVIE. If you think it should be realistic, then you are the reason for the “do not try this at home” warnings on TV that the rest of the known world finds insulting. Is the movie well acted? Absolutely, for the type of movie. Is the action in the movie sufficient? More than. Is the movie enjoyable? Hell yea! I had a blast. I loved the chemistry between Jake and Gemma, and thought Bruckheimer made a convincing and thoroughly thought through story for a game that really didn’t have that thorough a plot line to begin with. Excellent score for Disney, and it would make a grand classic for the whole family if added to your collection. I can’t wait for it to come out.

I don’t know what movie one of the other reviewers saw, but it certainly wasn’t the same one I saw. I thought it was excellent & no I am not a fangirl or fanboy, I have just been a movie buff my whole life. I thought Gyllenhaal did a great job considering he did most of his own stunts & looked very much like the PoP video game character. Plus he brought a lot of wit & charm to the character & there was quite a bit of chemistry between him & Gemma who was exquisitely beautiful, wonderful, & feisty as Tamina. My only problem with this movie is there won’t be a sequel since the US did not embrace this movie like they did overseas. However, it was fun, exciting, had beautiful cinematography with the Moroccan landscapes & deserts. The only CGI special effects were the turn back time sequences, & a few other places with the sand glass. It had quite a few teaching moments too, which makes it a great family film & for kids of all ages to enjoy. Bruckheimer movies are always big budget flicks & it shows in every way. There definitely was no cutting corners here, you could really tell. One more thing I want to add is the Parkour stunts were beautifully choreographed, that was an excellent idea to get David Belle to teach Gyllenhaal the art of Parkour, so they looked real. FYI to you naysayers, there is such a thing as suspension of disbelief & a good imagination that one must have to thoroughly lose yourself in a fantasy type movie as this is so you can enjoy it for what it is, otherwise, you waste the whole movie thinking about the stunts & events in it are impossible & illogical.

Like a lot of people I have been playing the “Prince of Persia” video games since “The Sands of Time” came out for Ninetendo Gamecube way back when.

I fell in love with that game and the franchise, so when I heard they were doing a live action film my first impression was…WHY???

Then I heard they cast Jake Gyllenhaal. (Going forward I will call him JG)

Granted JG’s a great actor, “Brokeback Mountain”, “Jarhead”, “Zodiac”.

JG’s one of the most underrated and underappreciated actors in Hollywood.

But JG as The Prince of Persia???

I had my doubts.

The only actor I knew in the movie was Ben Kingsley, so I knew HE would at least add a touch of class and excellence to the movie and he does.

Now….I wasn’t expecting this movie to be a masterpiece and it wasn’t…not by a long shot.

But for a video game to film translation…this movie is probably the best of the bunch.

Anyone who’s seen any of the game to movie translations will probably agree with me that thanks to Uwe Boll the majority of these movies have been simply horrid.

Thankfully “Prince” does not suffer the same fate.

As for JG playing the Prince.

There is one scene where I really went…OMG he DOES look just like the Prince.

Not the Prince from “Sands of Time” but the grizzly one from the second game “The Warrior Within”.

The hair, the beard, the outfit, he’s a dead ringer except for his big eyes kind of ruin the effect.

Ok but besides that what is good?

The script is excellent.

The acting is top notch and for a movie like this is almost unheard of.

The FX are of course simply the best you could hope for but the film hardly relies on FX and instead uses them to compliment the story.

All the Prince’s moves are accounted for. The platforming, the wall runs, etc… without looking fake or corny.

The sand rewind was just as I expected it to be, awesome.

What was bad?

Parts of it were corny and hokey.

The ostrich races and that whole gang of comic relief characters could have been cut out of the film entirely.

The film itself is WAY too long.

At almost two hours I literally had to force myself from falling asleep during the middle part of the movie.

A half hour could have been trimmed easily and nothing would have been lost.

In fact a movie like this almost has to move at a breakneck pace to match the subject matter.

But it didn’t.

Those minor points aside I’ll sum up “Prince of Persia” like this.

Excellent story.

Excellent acting.

Not so good pacing.

Great FX.

Recommended?

If you have the patience for two hours and are as big a fan of the video games as I am, then yes.

The rest of you may want to wait.

Me?

I thought it was a great popcorn movie and I look forward to the next one.

Recommended.

Even though this is not on Bluray/DVD yet, I am providing a quick review since it is already given a 3 star rating due to complaints about the original price tag (as seen, the price has dropped into the $20s where a normal Amazon Bluray first settles).

Anyway, if you love movies with an intriguing story, nonsensical action, a splurge of humor and an unyielding message, Prince of Persia is for you. In the mold of Bruckheimer, some things are not meant to be taken seriously, but I must commend him for making the best video game based movie I have ever witnessed.

The title Sands of Time, refers to the power of a magical dagger that can send its bearer a few seconds into the past to “change” the event that just occurred (similar to the weapon the Prince carries in the video game). The one who possesses this power can undo a previous action or even prevent themselves from just being killed. Without giving anything away, the story eventually unfolds to a darker danger to time itself if the dagger falls into the wrong hands.

Jake Gyllenhaal delivers as the happy-go-lucky Prince who comes of age to figure out the mystery of the dagger and attempt to stop those who threaten his family and the legacy of the kingdom. Gemma Arterton contrasts as the witty and beautiful Princess Tamina who stoutly serves as the hero’s foil while herself experiencing a personality check as the movie progresses. Ben Kingsley is always a professional and the great Alfred Molina completely steals the show as Sheik Amar in his scenes!

One thing must also be said – DO NOT TAKE THE TRAILERS AND TV SPOTS AS THE MOVIE! As far as I am concerned, the Marketing Dept dropped the ball on this; creating a perception that this is a movie of mindless action and flirtatious banter between the stars (“Why can’t you keep your eyes off of me???” nonsense). There are some hysterical moments between the Prince and Tamina, brilliant stunts (the Prince’s action scenes are very close to what he would do in the video game), and a story that revolves around trust, hope and not giving up on the love of one’s family.

If you loved Pirates of the Carribbean…this one will not dissapoint (In my opinion, it is certainly better than Dead Man’s Chest and At Worlds End by a long shot!)

Rating: 5 / 5

I have to say, I was a little hesitant when going to see this at first, but it turned out to be fantastic! Lots of action, and keeps you interested a lot! Jake Gylenhaal plays a great role, and he is very great in this movie. 5/5
