Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Good Things:

- Jake Gyllenhaal

- Jake Gyllenhaal's muscles.

- I thought it was kinda cool that they payed homage to the fact that this was originally a video game. A lot of the action was very game-like with all the hopping and climbing. And I swear I've played this game before.

-There was TONS of action. It kept me entertained.

Bad Things:

-The accents. I'm not a stickler for accents. They usually don't bother me, but when the main character's accent noticeably shifts to random unidentifiable accents during the coarse of the movie, it's a little off-putting.

-The whole ostrich race thing was pretty stupid.

-Why do the two main characters stare deep into each others eyes and kiss during the WORST POSSIBLE MOMENTS?

-Apparently, sometime while they were running away from people trying to kill them, Tamina somehow found the time to wash her eye makeup off and reapply it differently. It was pretty noticeable too since she was originally made up pretty dramatically for her wedding, then she ends up with just plain black eyeliner.

-The ending was really stupid.

3.5/5 stars. It was really fun, but not a great movie by any means. It gets a bonus star for Jake Gyllenhaal being in it.


  1. Haha - 3.5 seems really generous, but I respect your review! Glad you liked it!

  2. Most of those stars were for Jake Gyllenhaal. Haha.
