"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.

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.

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.

...a pointless and aggressively bland big-budget disaster.

It wanders through the desert, looking for an exciting hook but never finding one.

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.

The sands weigh heavily toward the action/special effects component, true to its video game origins and designed to the tastes of the fanboy gamer crowd.

Disney tries its hand at adapting a video game and deliver a wasted opportunity of a film.

It isn't that the film is bad, it's just that it's so bland at times you wonder if you're watching populist director like Ronald Emmerich trying to tackle a complex author like Dostoevsky.

Is it wrong to have higher expectations for a company that is capable of excellence, especially when it is spending upwards of $150 million to make a movie?

The CG-enhancements are so omnipresent here that they soon become the very opposite of "special" effects.

Hay en esta versión cinematográfica del video juego cierto espíritu clásico que invita a recuperar algo de aquella inocencia y que hace recordar, por momentos, a aventuras como las de Indiana Jones. Solo que El Príncipe de Persia difícilmente se convierta

Memo to studio execs: 'most entertainment' and 'most entertaining' are two completely different things.
