I haven’t played the Prince Of Persia Sands of Time Trilogy, but I have been in the same room where the games were actively being played. I saw the wall running and action from time to time, but I didn’t witness the storyline in the games. So, I had a slightly different experience with the movie than friends and family that have played the games; sometimes over and over and over again.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was a decent action flick with a few plot irks that made me twitch. I thought the dialog could have been a little more rich, the action was pretty well done, and the acting wasn’t bad. I actually enjoyed the character of Dastan (the main character played by Jake Gyllenhaal). For all the little twinges and could-have’s I felt Prince of Persia still delivered an enjoyable experience.
Prince of Persia is not a movie to remember for years to come, but it isn’t a waste of time. It’s a great movie to watch with the family on “movie night” that’s sure to capture a young teen’s attention and the adults can enjoy as well.
