Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time Reviews
Posted 05.27.10 by reelz
If there's ever been a good video game movie adaptation, someone please let us know. Is Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time about to become the first halfway decent one?
"As sword-and-sandal fantasy movies based on videogames and starring a buffed-up Jake Gyllenhaal go, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time goes pretty well."
— Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly
"...it's sort of fun, certainly more so than the National Treasure pictures, as well as less manic (a little less) than the recent Mummy films."
— Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune
"...a handsome, fast-paced and innocuous adventure that's easy to take but lacks epic scale."
— Ray Bennett, Variety
"...the pic's lack of game-changing originality, distinguishing anarchic streak or 3D wow factor may relegate this to summertime also-ran status."
— Leslie Felperin, Variety
"Prince of Persia isn't terrible. It has its moments, but they're fleeting. It's probably in the upper crust of video-game adaptations, though when you think back over the likes of Super Mario Brothers, Alone in the Dark, and BloodRayne ... that's not saying much."
— Sean O'Connell, filmcritic.com
