It took me a long time to figure out what to write about the Movie! I was blinded by the fact that Jake Gyllenhaal who played Prince Dastan adopted son of the King of Persia. But seriously I didn't expect as much, I wasn't fortunate enough to play the game before hand. Though I did speak to my friends who played the game and guess what they were disappointed with the movie. They were expecting the movie to be more on adventure which was the main theme of the Prince of Persia Game series. Another thought about it the movie, the script writers or whoever sacrificed the action and the mind bugling puzzles for a love story with the Princes Tamina, In my opinion it was half and half, I was liked that fact that we could relate with the story but I also wanted to see more of the action, puzzle solving twists which could really be something worth watching, Though I did enjoy the stunts and the effects was spotless plus I really like Jake Gyllenhaal i think his British accent was hot!
All those points I'd say if it weren't for Jake Gyllenhaal I wouldn't watch the movie. The story was mediocre, I mean we've seen it all before "Guy saves girl" "Girl strong willed, but vulnerable" etc. But hey don't take my word for it watch it yourself.
