A rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess (Gemma Arterton) and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. Based on the action-adventure video game of the same name.

Prince of Parkour: The Stunts of Time is a film where true brotherhood means giving up the woman-object you desire to the main character because he's had the most screen time and it wouldn't make sense the other way around. It raises important questions like: Why do White People playing Not White People always speak in British? Is this what Exodus is going to be like?
You'd be right to wonder what I'm doing watching nonsense like this when it's so clearly not my cup of tea. Well, I knew nothing was going to live up to The Thin Red Line, and I wanted to watch more of Jake Gyllenhaal's…
Unable to get of bed on this chilly winter Sunday morn, I needed something light to watch. So I stuck on Netflix (other streaming sites are available) and I whacked this on before my eyes.
It's not great. I understand this. But it's far from the piece of shit that some will have you believe. I guess it suffers from the stigma of being a "Video Game Movie", but if you compare it to the dreck that truly blights the genre, it's a freaking masterpiece.
Now I'm not actually saying its a masterpiece. That would be ridiculous. But the hatred I've heard steeped upon it is rather unfair. If ever there was a three-star movie, it would be this.
Clearly Jake Gyllenhaal’s magnum opus. Makes me wonder if Justin Kurzel and Michael Fassbender will be able to let this year’s Assassin’s Creed not suck somehow. I’m not putting money on it.
Film #20 of my Hanging Out with Disney project
(From the Prince of Persia soundtrack; www.youtube.com/watch?v=7oSggsWhwMw&list=PL47396371E9579BD8&index=1)
Wow. Just... wow. I'm just appalled at the fact that Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer had the idea to produce a crappy movie based on a video game series that almost no one's ever heard of, a genre that's been the subject of flop after flop after flop, and were wanting it to be their next Pirates of the Caribbean. Sure Bruckheimer's produced some terrible films in his career (Pearl Harbor, but the fault there lied more on Michael Bay, G-Force, but that was more juvenile Disney's stupidity there, and Kangaroo Jack, whatever the heck that mess was), but neither of those film seem as…
Quite pleasant fantasy that breaks no new ground but threads the familiar path with certainty. Probably the best movie ever to be based on a videogame.
Er.... Button-Moon-faced beauty Gemma Arterton kicks a man-shaped stage wig through a series of one-note CGI-assisted set pieces. Featuring Gyllenhaal's hair attempting a non-blow dry Harry Hamlin, Alfred Molina's bizarre slightly-off-beat comic timing, and Sir Ben looking as if he needs a few years Panto practice in Blackpool to nail his dastardly Evil-Lyn.
Pretty much interchangeable with my review of Clash of the Titans.
If her destiny is to keep the dagger safe, why hasn’t she learned how to fight? Also, Persia is the land of blue eyed people and eyeliner.
jake's slowmo fighting scenes get me every time... so stupid that it's hilarious
Too episodic and predictable, but it's not complete garbage and that makes it already better than 90% of videogame adaptations.
As a movie based on a video game, this one did okay. Probably even the best video games adaptation compared to all the others. Jake Gyllenhaal did okay.
Watched this and The Goblet of Fire in the same week...
Mike Newell needs to be permanently banned from big budget film making.
Thank God for Alfred Molina. I have no idea why there's a libertarian ostrich racer in this movie, but I'm not complaining.
Even with Jake Gyllenhaal in the lead role, it simply isn't enough to save this trainwreck of a film. I've never played the video games. I'm just judging this as a film.
It's an incredibly boring action adventure film, with a cast who mostly look like they don't care and a terrible script.
At this point, I feel like Hollywood is just picking out a hat what video game they are going to turn into a film next.
My question was:
Should I resell it or should I still keep it in my collection?
After revisiting "Prince of Persia - The sands of time" aka "Prince of Persia - Der Sand Der Zeit" I've decided to keep it in my collection.
Solid big budget CGI-fantasy-action, only the runtime of 116 minutes is about 15-20 minutes too long in my opinion.
IMDb Ratings: 6.6
Why: not your average video game flick
Should: only if you followed Video game with same name
My Ratings: 6 - #Okay
Tagline: Defy the Future
Bonus: We got a good movie adaption to video game. Which is rare.
