Prince of Persia is a derivative, malformed mess, with a plot that's preposterous and tediously predictable.
May 9, 2019
I couldn't help but think of other films such as "Pirates" and the "Indiana Jones" series, which covered the same material, and "Persia" paled in comparison.

Despite all of its messiness, the film is still kind of fun.
March 3, 2019
The chemistry between Gyllenhaal and Arteton is incredible that the romantic bantering is believable.
November 4, 2018
While it has a few notable flaws, the sum of its parts adds up to a lot of fun, humor, and thrilling action sequences.
August 8, 2018
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]

far from perfect, but it's fun to watch

"Prince of Persia" certainly has some entertainment value, but it suffers in the story department because it continually tries to fill the film with too much action.
September 28, 2012
Gyllenhaal might have seemed like an odd choice to top-line an action flick, given his indie leanings and wet noodle persona, but he's surprisingly tolerable as Dastan; a parkour-obsessed oik who grows into an abs-solutely un-flabulous warrior.

Someday someone is going to make a great film from a video game. Until then we have to be satisfied with being decently entertained without being hopelessly insulted. Prince of Persia manages to avoid doing either, so the wait continues.
April 4, 2011
This movie stars exactly one paleface American and several paler-faced Brits in almost all the supporting roles. The bronzer budget must have been a major line item.
January 10, 2011
...a pointless and aggressively bland big-budget disaster.

It wanders through the desert, looking for an exciting hook but never finding one.
September 25, 2010
The movie feels mediocre. It could've been much more, and so it seems the video game curse is still alive and well.

Pijesak vremena nije film koji će gledateljima dugo ostati u sjećanju, to i ne mora automatski značiti da je lo

All about the empty spectacle, sound and fury building to multiple climaxes (without the pleasure). [Blu-ray]

While Prince of Persia is no Pirates of the Caribbean, it's also nothing Bruckheimer or Disney need to feel ashamed of. My kids loved it.
