Story: Dustan jumps into action with no thought of how those actions will affect those he loves. When everything dear to him is taken, he fights to understand whats happened, and turns back the clock to stop his own madness.
The Sands of Time only caught a passing interest from me. Movies based on games tend to be a hit and miss venture with most of the time being a miss. Add to that Disney’s involvement and this project had caution written all over it.
That is until I watched the trailer. Now I'm excited about Prince of Persia.
The effects looks good. I like the use of a broader variety of weaponry especially the more exotic ones used by the The Hassan sins. The trailer does a nice job of setting up the back and forth between Dastan and Princess Tamina, even if a bit cliche.
Will you watch it in the theater, rent it or don't even care? let me know in the comments.
Based on the game Prince Of Persia. Dastan is a street urchin in 6th century Persia. Adopted by the king as his heir after showing valor in battle in hopes of keeping the king’s two sons from fighting over the throne. Dastan teams up with Princess Tamina to rescue the Sands of Time, a gift from the gods that controls time, from the hands of the villainous nobleman, Nizam.

A featurette is out for Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time looking at the dagger and the sands of time that is held within the dagger.
I love the look of the dagger. The production and effects team went through a lot of effort to keep the dagger's qualities close to those of the period yet giving it some unique twists to help it stand out as special. These details help to maintain the illusion of reality and are some of the small yet major elements that can make the experience of watching a fantasy tale.
The dagger also has intricate engravings that run the full length of the blade.
It's the details like this that excites me about the film.
Watch the featurette below.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time hits theaters May 28th 2010.
