Prince of Persia is a popcorn film which can be enjoyed if not taken too seriously. The film seems to have made especially for the teen audience in mind as it boasts of an ample amount of mindless action, magical escapades, running, jumping, hiding & chasing around. Two hours of timepass is guaranteed if you don’t give much thought to where the film is heading.
Based on a video game, the film pretty much looks like one as Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal), the adopted son of King of Persia and thus a rogue prince battles it out with pretty much everyone in Persia to save the magic dagger and his lost honour. Giving the prince company is Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) who knows a lot more about the mystical power of the dagger and how it has to be guarded for the safety of the universe.
