Product Description

Product Description

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.

Amazon.ca

Jake Gyllenhaal's doe eyes and bulging biceps will make some hearts flutter in Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. Dastan (Gyllenhaal), adopted prince of the Persian empire, must flee into the desert when accused of murdering his royal father--but a glass-handled dagger he found as loot from a captured city turns out to hold powerful time-manipulating magic. Not only is he pursued by his vengeful brothers, his scheming uncle (Ben Kingsley, Sexy Beast), and a strange cabal of assassins, but a princess/priestess named Tamina (Gemma Arterton, Quantum of Solace) wants the dagger back and will kill Dastan if she has to. Prince of Persia wants to be a rollicking adventure along the lines of Pirates of the Caribbean. Unfortunately, it's hampered by clumsy dialogue and hard-to-follow action sequences, with choppy editing that wrecks the flow of the parkour-inspired stunts. But the production design is extravagant and every time Alfred Molina (Spiderman 2) appears as a greedy sheik the movie gets a delightful jolt of energy. Gyllenhaal doesn't have much to work with--Dastan is a fairly generic hero--and whoever designed his hair should have been fired on the first day, but his lazy charm comes through and carries him through the movie. --Bret Fetzer

Video: The 1080p 2.40:1 AVC picture is a stunning cinematic experience, with a warm colour palette that perfectly captured the age-old desert settings. Contrast is excellent. Hues are rich and warm. Blacks are deep and solid. Resolution is also sharp, revealing fine facial and texture details. (4.5/5)

Audo: The DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 is dynamic with good work-out for all the surround speakers plus the subwoofers. The music by Harry Gregson-Williams enhances the mood with full orchestral treatment befitting of the storytelling. (4.5/5)

For the viewers with anamorphic lens, I am glad to inform you that the subtitles are within the stretched picture frames. Thank you Disney for listening to our complaints.

The movie was supposed to derive from a video game. There was a mild surprise twist to the ending, which I will not give away here. It was an enjoyable 116 minutes. Highly recommended.

I really enjoyed this movie. It reminded me a lot of the first "Pirates of the Caribbean" movie in the sense that it was just a fun summer movie that didn't take itself overly seriously. The story was entertaining if you don't think about it too hard, the characters are fun, and the visual effects are good. If you're looking for an epic drama, this isn't the movie for you, but if you just want to be entertained in a not-so-serious way, then you might like it. It has a few laughs, some good action sequences (some were a bit too long for me), and a bit of romance... it's a good mix.

By The Movie Guy HALL OF FAMETOP 10 REVIEWER on Nov. 29 2015
Format: Blu-ray
This movie has nearly all the makings of an Epic motion picture. It has an exotic setting, a new crisp plot, plenty of action, and a beautiful woman. Our hero starts out as a street orphan who champions goodness against the Persian army as he jumps around rooftops like the Phantom. However, once he becomes adopted by the king, he loses a lot of personality. He is not as colorful as other leading men in Epic films, mostly due to the writers who gave him lousy lines.

What was really missing in this movie outside of exceptional dialogue was humor. I don't mean turn the movie into a comedy, but when you want to be compared to Pirates..., Indian Jones, or other epics such as Star Wars or even the grand daddy of them all LOTR, they all had some comical element in them with leading men that were able to deliver those lines. This movie lacked that human element and it showed as it failed to hook me.

In spite of the inability of either the script writers or director to create great characters, the plot, action and scenery were enough to carry the film to where it would be enjoyable. There was one "joke" as the princess kept an amulet with the sands of time in it on a necklace located at her cleavage...the last place anyone would look, except maybe Prince Dustin who noticed it right off.

Yes, there is a time travel element to it, but it is not really a time travel movie, i.e. it is not bogged down with nerdy time travel paradoxes. Time travel was a gift from the unnamed god(s).

The movie has a happy ending with a message of hope as well as violence, killing, and snakes. I consider it better entertainment than Robin Hood, or Iron Man II.
4 1/2 stars.

I went to see this film,based on a popular XBox game, and I thought it-was-AWESOME! Though admittedly I never played the game - I am no good at XBox games, but that's OK.

The film is about Dastan, adopted prince of Persia, whom (after conquering the holy city of Alamut) was framed for the king's murder by a poisoned robe. Alamut's Princess Tamina helped Dastan escape from the soldiers. Of course, she didn't care about him, she wanted the dagger he stole during the attack. It is not an ordinary dagger. It is a dagger that when you press the jewel on the hilt, controls the flow of time! Dastan found out the dagger's power after a "slight skirmish" from Tamina. After some thinking, Dastan knew that the murder had to be his brother Tus, who wanted to be king and the dagger, thus becoming the most powerful ruler of Persia.

And with a little cooperation, Dastan and Tamina decide to work together to clear his name and keep the Dagger of Time safe. So anyway I really love this film.

The movie was very good. It was the first time I had the BlueRay feature, was disappointed as the picture and sound were no different that regular DVD. The package I received was supposed to be a three (3) disc product, but, there were only two(2) discs in the case. Other than those remarks the movie as a whole was great.

i have not played nor seen the the video game that this movie is apparently based on,so i can't say whether it does it justice or not.however,i can say i enjoyed it immensely.not only is it very exciting and fast paced,but it's also(intentionally)very funny at times Jake Gyllenhaal bulked up a fair amount here and is very convincing as an action hero.Gemma Arterton plays the love interest/sidekick and is also very good.she and Gyllenhaal have good chemistry.Alfred Molina is a scream and steals every scene he is in.Ben Kinsgley is great as well.this movie was way better than i anticipated,plus i saw it a $3 theatre.for me,Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a 4/5
