    Captures the general essence of the video games. Gyllenhaal makes a pretty good action star. It's just a shame he's lumbered with clumsy dialogue, mediocre set pieces, and a fairly lazy plot that tries too hard with the WMD analogies.

    Slept through the entire thing! Awful!

    Cuts out every ounce of magic that the video game possessed, choosing instead to cram the festering holes where it's heart and soul used to be with hand-fulls of dollar bills. What an atrocity.

    You are onto a loser when you miscast your main character, Gyllenhaal is not cut out to be an action star, and you cast an actress you just cannot act (Arterton).

    Then if you add on the fact the story is poorly put together and overly comical then you get the mess that is this film.

    Prince of Persia is a disjointed mess of an Action Adventure Fantasy about a young fugitive prince and a princess who must stop a villain who unknowingly threatens to destroy the world with a special dagger that enables the magic sand inside to reverse time. Though the narrative has some very good ideas, the film has a lot of cheesy moments and some woeful dialogue. Actress Gemma Arterton plays a very irritating character that at points you wish would just…

    Het is altijd een plezier om Jake Gyllenhaal bezig te zien en bovendien verveelt de film geen seconde. Een beetje ondergewaardeerd door de critici, als je 't mij vraagt.

    Not bad for a video game adaptation. Gemma Arterton was especially good as the princess and I didn't mind Jake Gyllenhaal's performance although his accent seemed a little odd for the setting. There were lots of little nods to the game that the film is based on and the effects and stunts weren't half bad. Backed up by a nice score by Harry Gregson Williams this film was better than I expected. I found Ben Kingsley's character a bit unimaginative however. (14.11.10)
