A Really Mini Review on Prince of Persia : Sands of Time

Cover of game and movie of Prince of Persia

My first adventure DOS game

I just got home from watching Prince of Persia: Sands of Time starring Jake Gylenhall and Sir Ben Kingsley. I then decided to write a brief review of what I think about the movie because it wasn't as bad as I expected it to be. In short, the concept of the story was interesting how it turns back time and all, the fight scenes were choreographed beautifully, the pace of the story is quick.

Remember this? 90's babies would have!

The downside to it was how it fails to brew the excitement or even stir up a teensie bit of enthusiasm while watching it. I wasn't at all thrilled during those action scenes. You know, the feeling you get when you don't want a specific character to die, it lack that "oomph" (sort of a weird explanation this "oomph" thing). I also don't understand how the choose the actor and how Gylenhall got the part. His face doesn't quite make it as a Persian, but again I'm not a casting director *shrugs*. Since this is called "Prince of PERSIA", I thought, at the very least, the actors would have developed a Persian/Arab accent. Sadly, they were all chatting in English accent, even the thieves, geez *rolls eyes*.

I used to fall so many times in this game

Overall, it was an okay movie and I would rate it at around 6/10 because of its entertaining factor.
