Top Critic Reviews

Rotten: What's missing in Prince of Persia is a sense that all the running, jumping, climbing and fighting is leading to something. The best video games challenge you to reach the next level. Prince of Persia is content to skim the surface.

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. :)
