Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (Google It) (Wikipedia) has a very good storyline eventhough it doesn’t have many Computer Graphics (Google It) (Wikipedia) CG mumbo-jumbo like most of the recent movies have. I played a few Prince of Persia games before, the hero in the movie does not give me the same feeling as the hero in the games. Jake Gyllenhaal (Google It) (Wikipedia) is too…girly for the role? But still, the movie is good on it’s own, even without the name "Prince of Persia" on it.
Ubisoft’s popular video-game series of the same name gets adapted for the big screen in this sweeping fantasy adventure starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton. The setting is sixth century Persia. A nefarious nobleman covets the Sands of Time, a legendary gift from the gods that allows its possessor to turn back time. Whoever owns the Sands of Time has the power to rule the world, and this villainous lord would use that power to enslave all of humanity. The only person capable of defeating this tyrant and saving the world is Dastan (Gyllenhaal), a youthful prince. Now, with plucky princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) by his side, Dastan will attempt to prevent the Sands of Time from falling into the wrong hands. Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) directs a script penned by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Jordan Mechner, and Boaz Yakin.
