Movie Review

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010)

Ten years or so back I have played the first “Prince of Persia” PC games and I liked them. Today I wanted to go to a movie and I picked this movie in Satyam movies.

“Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” is about an orphan “Dastan” (Hero) in the sixth century Persian Empire, who commits an act of courage in a public market place and is adopted by the king. 15 years later Dastan, his royal-blooded foster brothers, Tus and Garsiv, and his uncle, Nizam are planning an attack on the sacred city of Alamut, which is believed to be selling weapons to their enemies. Alamut falls to the Persians, Tamina (Heroine) is captured. Rest of the story is about a Divine Dagger with magical powers and how the Hero & Heroine saves it from falling into bad hands.

The fighting & chasing scenes are very well done. The Hero Jake Gyllenhaal has done a fine job.
