    Why is this movie as long as it is? I can appreciate a pg-13 adventure movie with the rest of them, but shoot for 90 minutes.

    Also, Alfred Molina, I know you have to pay the bills, but this? You were Doc Ock, for Chrissake. Have some self respect.

    Jake Gyllenhaal, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina y Toby Kebbell..... una foto de ellos cuatro juntos cogidos de la mano en la enciclopedia presidiendo la palabra: Desubicado. En serio Jake para papeles dramáticos y perturbados BIEN, para cómicos y acción MAL.

    It says something about the goodwill Jake Gyllenhaal has accumulated in his career that we all seem to have just agreed to quietly forget about this clunker on his resume. Not that PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME is noteworthy in doing anything particularly awful. Really, it isn't noteworthy in doing anything, period. Basically, it just strives for base-line competence, chugging along the rails of blockbuster formula with no ambition to achieve anything memorable. A talented cast including the…

    Prince of Emo, Pirates of Persia

    Once we used to say that "the book was better", now it seems more appropriate to use that phrase with video games adaptations, for instance, "the game was better". Max Payne, Silent Hill, Tomb Raider - those were all great, inventive games. Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (and we're talking about the game here) is a modern classic in gaming. It was hugely entertaining, occasionally well written, undoubtedly made by fans of…

    One has to wonder if the original title for Disney's Prince of Persia (subtitled "The Sands of Time") was "Prince of Parkour." A significant portion of the film involves the main character, Dastan, leaping over roofs and doing incredible acrobatics. One early sequence involves Dastan climbing a large wall using arrows that his allies are dangerously shooting into the wall as he moves, which of course causes one to wonder why the arrows weren't simply shot into the wall before…

    Beautiful oldschool adventure action movie. Great cinematics, effects and sound. As often, time travel makes the story abit arbitrary.

    Video game movies have a reputation for being poor. This isn't much of an exception, but it IS superior to many of them.

    This movie is certainly influenced by the Assassin's Creed series and The Scorpion King, yet fails to be as interesting as either one. I haven't played most of the Prince of Persia games myself - however, I know there was more that this movie could've taken note of. Prince of Persia (film) could've been much better, something…

    2010 was a simpler time for me -- I was younger, my standards for entertainment were lower, and I didn't know what whitewashing was.

    Now that I do know what it is, I couldn't actually rewatch this, since I kept getting angry about how insincere and generic and absolutely uninteresting it all is, in addition to being almost 2 hours long.

    I remember being into the parkour scenes when I saw it in 2010, but there were only a few…

    This is one of my not-so-guilty pleasure movies. It's cool, fun, exciting, adventurous, and it's got my man Jake leading the way. Don't care what anybody says, I love this movie.
