Prince of Persia was a so-so movie. Very formulaic: two parts The Mummy and one part Pirates of the Caribbean. Only it wasn’t as good as either of those. Okay, it was a looooong way from being as good as Pirates. But it’s probably neck and neck with The Mummy.
The action scenes are pretty cool. I think young kids will enjoy it just for those scenes. There is a lot of killing with sword chops and stabs plus some bow-n-arrow kills. So if you don’t want your kid to see something like that then don’t see this movie.
What this movie really lacked was humor. The only funny lines in the movie revolve around Sheik Amar played by Alfred Molina. It was great to see Alfred in a non-evil role. I hardly recognized him.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton were just fine in their roles. I think that had the writers given them some good humor to work with this movie could have been surprisingly good instead of predictably average.
