Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Prince of Persia: the Sands of Time Blu-Ray + DVD Combo Review

Synopsis: In the spirit of the Pirates Of The Caribbean trilogy, Walt Disney Pictures and Jerry Bruckheimer Films transport you to the mystical lands of Persia for this wildly entertaining, epic action-adventure. It's a race against time when a rogue prince (Jake Gyllenhaal) reluctantly teams up with a rival princess (Gemma Arterton) to safeguard a magical dagger that gives its possessor the power to reverse time and rule the world. Filled with death-defying escapes and unexpected twists at every turn - Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time is a fun-filled adventure that will keep your pulse pounding long after the credits end.

Review: The latest live action release from Disney is something a little out of character.  The Prince of Persia is a video game series that deals with action, adventure and mystery.

Jake Gyllenhaal turns in a characteristically suberb performance as Dastan.  His good looks will certainly interest a lot of the viewing audience, while his accessibility and vulnerability make him a likeable actor.   He's a great choice for a leading role.  The choice of the great Alfred Molina as an almost comic relief as the greedy shiek is phenominal.

The film isn't perfect, it harbors a little bit of editing that cuts short some of the best scenes, but overall it is definately a success!  This one is Indiana Jones-style fun for the entire family!
