Prince of Persia

Supposed to be opening today...

{2.5 min}
'A video-game adaptation, a Fresh Prince of Gel Hair who runs around the desert w/ a magic dagger' - Amy Biancolli

'If you enjoyed Lara Croft: Tomb Raider, another video game made into a blockbuster, then you'll probably enjoy this' - Colin Newton

'a pinch of metaphysics with your high jinks. You also get walk-up-walls scenes worthy of The Matrix. And cool daggers and Gemma Arterton. What’s not to love?' - Andrew O'Hagan

'2 hours of July 4th fireworks w/ flying swords, sandstorms, raging battles and mystical palaces' - Betsy Sharkey

Lastly, the New Yorker's verdict, since I usually agree with their assessments: big budget 'schlock', with over $100 million US spent on authentic costumes, sets and props.

But sometimes you're in the mood for popcorn schlock.

Will be going sometime next week... ;-)

  1. Oooh! Thank you, THANK YOU for posting this! I'm seriously crushing on Jake Gyllenhaal at the moment, it's those sleepy eyes *sigh* ... and the buff body. Who would've thought Donnie Darko would be a bit of a hottie one day?

    Ps: Did I mention the sleepy eyes and the buff body? Ok, just checking.
