Defy the future!
I wasn’t exactly sure what to make of this when I heard that it was going to be released because it was produced by the producers of the Pirates of the Caribbean movie and it’s based from a very popular video game. However, after watching Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, I can see that I had nothing to worry about as it was a very enjoyable and action-packed ride. The story was very good and kept your attention all the way. The characters did their job and you felt how you were supposed to feel about them and the actors did a great job playing as their characters. I thought that Jake Gyllenhaal did a fantastic job as Dastan, the Prince of Persia as did Gemma Arterton who played Princess Tamina. The action sequences were brilliant to watch and the CGI was done rather well. The writing and the direction was great and it made for truly enjoyable viewing.
I absolutely love the Prince of Persia games and I very much enjoyed watching the movie. The most entertaining part of the movie for me was definitely the last forty-five minutes, it was brilliantly executed and action-packed. I have no idea how this got bad reviews, it was just great. Everybody would love this movie and if you aren’t a fan of Pirates of the Caribbean and fear that it would be like it, then get those thoughts out of your head because you’ll be pleased by this movie. Overall, I truly recommend this to everybody as it’s enjoyable and it’s something the whole family would love.
Very much surprised by it. This definitely belongs in the good video-game adaptation pile!
