Prince of Persia: Sands of Time

As legendary as the game, Prince of Persia: Sands of time has proved to be just as legendary. Not for a moment the movie felt off from what great feats our beloved Prince goes from wall jumping, arrow climbing, monster killing stunts that he does.

Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) is trapped in a sticky situation when he finds himself set up by his uncle Nizam who uses him to give his father (the then king) a gift of a beautiful robe that in turn burns the king killing him in moments.

His brothers not realizing what happened are confused into thinking Dastan actually did want to kill their father. Thus Dastan flees the country with Princess Tamina's (Gemma Arterton) of the sacred city of city of Alamut. That city held a sacred treasure of time, the Dagger that controlled the sands of time. Nizam wanted his hands on this dagger which is why he tricked the Princes of Persia (the three brothers) to attack that city.

While on the run, Dastan finds out all that he could about his uncle, who was indeed an enemy to the family and the sword of protection to empire, which were the three brothers.

Thus churning and twisting story unfolds itself into breath taking events which are both impossible to overlook and forget.

Wonderful movie, should see it.
