Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Reviews
Also... it's not meant to be much more than an entertaining fantasy adventure with a decent plot. And by that standard, it does the job well.
It was funny to see Gemma Arterton in a very similar role to hers in Clash of the Titans, and also with a very similar romantic plot. It felt like Sam Worthington should be in the movie as well... Maybe if they make a sequel, he could be in it. :)
His central performance definitely holds the film together..and he is supported by a great British cast, Ben Kingsly and Toby Kebbell among them. Richard Coyle also does well. A favourite actor of mine, and it is nice to see him with meaty role in a blockbuster. Alfred Molina hams it up once again, and while it fits in this film...it would be nice to have a bit more depth from him these days.The oh-so-important time effects are done well and Dastan's Freerunning stunts and set action pieces are fantastic. The filmmakers have done very well to bring a game such as this (with little in terms of story) to the big screen and keep it watchable. Fun and enjoyable stuff.
