Prince of Persia: the movie

image obtained from IMDB

Okay, this post has nothing to do with books, although I am sure there will be a book out based on this movie soon.  Consider this one of the ramblings I warned you to expect.

I went to see this movie yesterday with a friend.  I really had no idea what it was about except there was something to do with altering time.  I did know that it was based on a computer game.  It was obviously an adventure/fantasy film, so how could I resist?

It was great.  There was absolutely no “message” that I could find.  It was just a lot of fun.  I kept thinking it was an Indiana Jones meets Ancient Persia combination.  There were even some scenes that could have been taken right out of an Indiana Jones movie.

I spent a good bit of the movie trying to figure out where I knew the actor who played Prince Dastan from.  It is Jake Gyllenhaal, who played in The Day After Tomorrow.  That is another favorite film of mine.

If you are interested in a good escapism movie, go see this and enjoy yourself.
