Despite all of its messiness, the film is still kind of fun.

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.

Gyllenhaal establishes himself as a worthy cinematic action hero, shares smoldering chemistry with Arterton and plays well with the colorful cast of supporting characters.

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

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.

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.

Lovely to look at and mildly funny but tries with sweaty desperation to be the next Pirates of the Caribbean.

... an amusing throwback to campy 1940s Technicolor adventures like Cobra Woman and Arabian Nights.

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.

Disney trades in the Caribbean for all of Persia with mixed results... seems to be holding back and overshooting all at the same time.

It's at its worst when it slows down for too long and gives you an opportunity to think about the plot. Luckily, that doesn't happen too often.

Try as I may, I simply cannot dislike any movie with both an ostrich race and an ostrich stampede.
June 1, 2010
The plot is impossible to follow but the full on action sequences make it fun to watch.

This is a movie that knows exactly how dumb it is.

This effects-laden spectacle delivers just what it promises and no more.

A swashbuckler in the grand tradition, it has the ingredients of a good summer popcorn movie.
May 30, 2010
Sand plus swords plus long hair plus Jake Gyllenhaal minus a shirt equals good times. Entertaining, escapist B-movie fluff that does more for the female audience than its weekend competition, Sex and the City 2, ever will.

With all this stacked against it, one may understandably wonder: What could possible go right? The answer, surprisingly, is: More than you would expect.
