MarkdownMom recently viewed The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, out on DVD, and although it has been reviewed as a close, but not completely terrible movie, there are some reasons for renting it. It’s a real surprise to see Jake Gyllendhaal as beefcake, his physical portrayal of the Dastan character in this film is a far cry from the more sensitive, cerebral roles that he is noted for. The dialogue contains too many modern expressions to make the time period credible. And it’s surprising to find notable actors such as Ben Kingsley, the chief antagonist, Alfred Molina, and others in this video game genre movie.
If you like a lot of action with some fuzzy special effects scenes, then you should enjoy the film. Although its’ pluses are quite limited, it’s worth renting at the RedBox for a buck, but make sure you get it back in time because it’s doubtful it’s worth $2, unless you’re desperate for entertainment.
