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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Persia is really AWESOME! Sept. 18 2010
By Frances L. Arsenault TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars enjoyed it immensely July 29 2010
By falcon TOP 1000 REVIEWER
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

I loved this movie - not sure why it did not do better in the theaters as it was a great fun swashbuckling type of movie. We really enjoyed it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take it for what it is, and it's a fun ride April 1 2011
By killerwhaletank TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray|Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Prince of Persia March 30 2011
Format:Blu-ray
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.

By bernie TOP 100 REVIEWER
Format:Blu-ray
Prince Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) helps squash a city Alamut that appears to have been selling massive weapons for destruction. There he meets Princes Tamina (Gemma Arterton) who protects the great secret of the "Sands of Time." - If you think I am about to give a blow-by-blow description of the story, you are wrong as the fun is to watch it unfold.

"It is said some lives are linked across time. Connected by an ancient calling that echoes through the ages"

The main actors, Gemma Arterton, and Jake Gyllenhaal are good at their portrayal of character. However, what really put this movie over the top are the veteran actors including Ben Kingsley and Alfred Molina who really go into their parts; they did not just walk through the movie.

I only saw the Blu-ray version so naturally the film has great resolution and sound quality. I believe they had Blu-ray in mind during the making of this movie in Morocco. Do not bypass the feature extras.

The game's a foot.

I loved this fictional movie. It had historical facts, like the dagger that was used to assassinate dignitaries, the Alamut castle is a real one, and the name Dastan means story. Read more
