I had to do it. There was nothing new at the movies this week, but I'm a movie hog and wanted to see some action. Did I get it? Yep, Prince of Persia delivered high on action. The storyline was really weak at first and I must say I got a little miffed at the cliche' boy turned Prince theme. It was endearing at first, but the movie seemed to have "action" for the sake of action and the villains reason for starting all of his deception in my opinion was very weak.


Yep there is a 'but' something happened towards the end of this movie. The depth of his relationship with his brothers finally came to light. It wasn't apparent in the beginning of the movie, which I wish they would have spent more time building up instead of going overboard with the action. By the time this change of depth happened, the movie was almost over.

I went through a series of emotions while watching this movie. It started with excitement, mid-way I felt 'blah' disappointment, but towards the end, I fell in love with it again. I give it a 2.5 stars.

Oh, and look for the line that has been in most of the fantasy adventure movies in the last year or so, "The gods have a plan for you." The catch phrase for 2010. Please name the movies you've heard that in. So far I've heard it in the Lightening Thief and Clash of the Titans just to name a few.

Thanks for the review, LM! I was torn on seeing this movie because I could tell the plot and storyline would be weak and messy just by the commercials (but honestly, most movies like these seem to be that way and they focus more on gripping you with the world and setting than they do with the actual plot), but I love anything Persian so I still wanted to see it. I haven't yet, and I don't know if I will get the time to. But your review certainly put things in perspective.

Also, I agree about the line. When I heard it from the commercials, I was like, "Um...familiar, much?" lol, maybe it is the line of 2010.

Thanks again!
