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.

it’s too bad – the leads look like really nice eye candy.

I actually thought this was a good movie. While it might not have been as good as the mummy and pirates, it was entertaining. I, myself, am a high schooler so my thoughts about the movie may be different from other people’s opinions. My favorite part about the movie was definitely the stunts that Jake Gyllenhal did (climbing up the wall was my favorite)–very impressive, though he had to have used wires and such, but still…
I thought it was a pretty enjoyable action flick. Though I think the video game was better, this was a different take on the same concept with slightly different main characters. It made sense to change the story, since movies demand more complex plotlines and character interaction. Overall, even though the movie’s nothing to write home about, I think it’s a step in the right direction for video game movies.
