    7/10: Predictable storyline but great special effects and actions. One of the better game adaptation movies.

    Thi is just pure awesomeness, spectacular action, great story, great locations, action is breathtaking, it just hits on all fields. Prince Of Persia, John Carter and Lone Ranger are just AWESOME !!! Beats the living shit out of an Pirates of the Caribbean Quadrilogy and so does the other two (John and Lone Ranger), would like a sequel...

    Oh god, why did I go and see this? The weak and clumsy opening set a million alarm bells ringing in my hopeful little brain. The only thing that made the whole thing vaguely enjoyable was Jake Gyllenhaal playing the lead role with charisma and a decent amount of swagger, although he was a little bit Jack Sparrow-lite for my liking (why were so many characters talking with those bizarre hybrid cockney accents?)

    The script was terrible and I'm pretty…

    Prince of Persia: Sands of Time overcomes its crazy plot by a highly entertaining performance by Jake Gyllenhaal and tons of awesome action sequences. One of the most fun movies this year.

    Forgettable action movie that isn't anything special.

    I wish the Sands of Time would give me my two hours back.

    A lot of effort has gone into something not fully realised or perhaps even understood by Bruckheimer and his writers. Adapting a video game with science fiction themes with an ancient period setting is a stretch, but not impossible to pull off. But they don't pull it off, even with a steady hand like Mike Newell directing.

    The first half shows promise, however by the midpoint you…

    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…

    "You can't organize an ostrich race with just one ostrich!"

    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…

    Creator Jordan Mechner himself was involved in this film adaptation of the well-known video game, but despite it's competent high budget staging and special effects, the story is a tad on the boring side. Average escapism.

    An enjoyable swashbuckler along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean or John Carter (though I feel both those were better than this), watched on an idle evening when an evening with Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, and Alfred Molina was good enough.

    It's got a lot of generic stuff going on but I still think it's fun. The action scenes are well done and the effects top notch. The score and story are kind of generic. The actors do their best with the material on hand.
