Prince of Persia, The Sands of Time is base on video game of same name. After other game base movies like “the sweet boring” Hitman and “never watch again” Max Payne, I was not expecting much from this movie.
Plot: (***NO SPOILERS***)
Dastan, the Prince of Persia, helps his brother to win the city of Almut and accidentally finds a dagger called as Dagger of Time. The dagger gives its owner the ability to go back in time and change things (for good hopefully 😛 ). So Dastan has the dagger and the Princess of Almat, Tamina, who is the guardian of the dagger, tries her best to get hands on it.
Dastan is fooled in to giving poisoned gift to his father and then everyone suddenly becomes his enemy. Now Dastan tries to prove his innocence with help of Princess Tamina who has her own plans. He eventually finds the real killer of his father and also discovers the truth behind the dagger. In the end, the destiny of whole world is in Dastans hand.
I did not watch this movie in 3D but I am sure the special effects are excellent (its Disney man! 😉 ). Plot is not even a bit complicated as compared to the original game. But its a fast paced, action packed and funny (at times) movie. All actors have done their job well. The prince keeps jumping all the time in movie. Camera angles are good enough to give you feel of action. Not much dialogues. Just understand what the dagger is and you are free to ignore all other dialogues.
Overall, it is worth onetime watch (preferably in 3D, but normal is also fine). No parental discretion required 😀 . They bloody don’t kiss till the end (this can’t be called a spoiler, OK?) 😀 .
I am not rating with stars this time. Instead, I say go watch it for fun, but don’t expect much 😉
