Fresh: This is a movie that knows exactly how dumb it is.
- A.O. Scott, At the Movies, Tuesday, June 1, 2010
Rotten: A spectacularly silly video-game adaptation about a Fresh Prince of Gel Hair who runs around the desert with a magic dagger, a curious version of Alfred Molina and some hoity-toity chick who never breaks a sweat. It's sort of pointless.
- Amy Biancolli, Houston Chronicle, Friday, May 28, 2010
Rotten: The story unfolds with little regard for subtlety, and wisecracks are what pass for humor. When a gaggle of gangly ostriches offers one of the biggest laughs, wit clearly is at a premium.

Fairplay to them, they are making some tripe nowadays. Could've and should've been so much better. Aren't those hungarian defenders?

A spectacular roller coaster ride of an adventure that you have to see to believe. An outstanding, breathtaking and exhilarating action-packed extravaganza that will keep your eyes glued to the screen. It's loaded with amazing special effects and incredible action sequences that include death-defying escapes, blistering sword-fights and dazzling chases. This is one unforgettably fun movie from start to finish and leave you wanting more even at the end credits. It's the best action-adventure epic since Pirates Of The Caribbean. It's smart, funny, thrilling and adrenaline-pumping all the way through. Director, Mike Newell crafts a wonderfully entertaining and fun adventure that is hard to resist. Jake Gyllenhall is stunning, showing charm, humor, charisma and fierce dedication to his action hero lead. Alfred Molina is wonderful. Ben Kingsley is terrific.

Prince of Persia is a very good action movie with beautifully rich and out of this world costumes and scenes, with attention to making it a little more interesting by dipping away from the usual. There are some good scenes, and not as good as Pirates of the Caribbean as pirates are way cooler, and as it is made by Disney I found myself after an hour actually realising this was just the same story from Alladin. Plus there were no, or very little, real persians which was a tragic shame to the authenticity, but still its a film based on a video game, you cant get much authentic than that. :)
