It doesn't offer much in the way of substance, but Prince of Persia is a suitably entertaining swashbuckler -- and a substantial improvement over most video game adaptations.

[A] cacophonous, frivolous adaptation of Ubisoft's Arabian Nights-themed video-game series.
The sheer whoosh of the story line keeps you watching anyway, and, as the prince, Jake Gyllenhaal has a hearty good-naturedness that comes as a relief amid all the turbocharged antics. He wears his heroism lightly.
Disposable family entertainment.
This is a movie that knows exactly how dumb it is.
Bring a joystick to this big budget adventure. It'll give your hands something to do when you're restless.
As usual, the talent in Prince of Persia is generally top notch -- from the cinematographer John Seale to the parkour expert David Belle -- but the ingredients have been masticated so heavily the results are mush.
The chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Arteton is incredible that the romantic bantering is believable.
While it has a few notable flaws, the sum of its parts adds up to a lot of fun, humor, and thrilling action sequences.
Gyllenhaal establishes himself as a worthy cinematic action hero, shares smoldering chemistry with Arterton and plays well with the colorful cast of supporting characters.
Diagnosis: insufficient mayhem.
You could pretty much call it Aladdin Goes to War and get the point. Videogame movies are usually pretty thin on plot, but Prince of Persia is one game noted for its story.
An entertaining blockbuster; exciting, visually appealing, well acted and very respectful to the games. [Full review in Spanish]
a visual treat with great action, gripping suspense, and great effects, and its one of the movies that is acceptable in the gaming world
With a lot of clichés, a silly sense of humor and empty, ridiculous characters, this harmless swashbuckler is predictable from the first scene to the last and doesn't even realize that the warn-out love/hate relationship between the main couple gets irritating really really fast.
Yeah ... Bruckheimer. Ok (bring on the lobotomy doctors!). But it's that frenchie kraze that's the real star: parkour. It brings back the swash in swashbuckler. Gyllenhaal will send his kids to Harvard outta what he earns here (if he gets some of the gross!), and a new leading man is born. Al Molina and Gemma Atherton add needed spice.
This movie is about a rogue prince who is accused of his father's murder and has to find the real killer. He meets a princess who is also the guardian of a dagger that can turn back time. Good cast and storyline.
