Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

From the team behind Pirates of the Caribbean comes this epic action-adventure set in mystical Persia. A rogue prince (the great Jake Gyllenhaal, Donnie Darko) reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess (Bond girl Gemma Arterton) and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time - a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Bruckheimer's passably enjoyable, antiquity-themed epic should satisfy its young male core demographic well enough, but won't connect with other auds on the level of Bruckheimer's "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.

Its restraint might put off thrill-seekers, but if you can endure the wooden dialogue and sloppy exposition, it musters the entertainment quotient of a middle-order Harry Potter.

The film was a little over explanatory with the characters telling the audience what just happened. The swelling of romantic music when ever Dastan and Tamina have a small moment is a unnecessary. I have no idea what so ever why everyone had a British accent (including Jake Gyllenhaal who is american) when the movie is set in Persia. Jake Gyllenhaal is a...
