LIKED IT…a lot! Walt Disney’s Prince of Persia is an action-packed adventure that’s SO MUCH fun to watch. I definitely expected it to be good, and it surpassed my expectations. The film had great pictures, cinematography and special effects, while Jake Gyllenhaal did a fantastic job as the bronzed hero figure! I will say the story was nothing too new…it had that epic feel of “once up on a time, in a land far, far away” and at times it felt reminiscent of Gladiator, where only one man can save the day. During the film I found myself clenching down on my jaw and all tensed up as just when you thought it was going to be okay….something had to go wrong! Ha!! Nonetheless, it kept me on the edge of my seat and was interesting enough to keep me guessing which direction it’d turn to next. Not only is there action and adventure, but there’s quick wit and romance too (between a prince and a princess), all the ingredients of an epic fairytale. I tend to enjoy period pieces and films that fall in line with 300, Gladiator, Braveheart, etc… so now I can add another one to that list!
