I have been a long time fan of the Prince Of Persia games, although I didn’t consider the first (reboot) of the franchise to be the masterpiece it is often heralded as. Yet generally I enjoy the gameplay and the setting. This movie most closely resembles that game, The Sands Of Time, casting against type Jake Gyllenhaal as the cocky hero, a former street urchin taken in by the King and brought up as one of his three sons. Then after a neighbouring city is suspected of making weapons for the enemy, the King orders his army to raid the city and kidnap the beautiful Princess (Gemma Artertan), who it transpires is the guardian of a sacred dagger that has the power to reverse time.
