Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a cinematic extravaganza of an Old Persian fable about a slave who becomes a prince and saves his kingdom from the sands of storm with a mystical dagger.
Dastaan (Jake Gyllenhall), an orphan with spectacular acrobatic skills, is chosen as a prince. He leads a war against a neighboring holy city ruled by princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton). Then a vazir gives a sacred dagger with mystical sands and gives Dastaan the powers to go back in time. Finally, Dastaan and Tamina unite to save their kingdoms from an impending sand storm.
Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton give thrilling performances. Ben Kingsley is as competent as ever. All others fit their roles well as these characters are already properly delineated in the original video game.
This is a well made 3D film with the best possible techniques that are available today. Even the 2D version is also quite impressive.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a great cinematic experience. Watch it in 3D. The film is also available in Hindi and Telugu 2D versions.
