PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME

DVD Review by David Blackwell

 

DETAILS:  116 minutes, making-of featurette

VIDEO:  2.40:1 (Anamorphic Widescreen)

AUDIO:  English 5.1, French 5.1, Spanish 5.1 Dolby Digital, English 2.0 DVS

Subtitles:  English SDH, French, Spanish

 

STUDIO:  Walt Disney Pictures/ Jerry Bruckheimer Films

Theatrical RELEASE DATE:  5-28-2010

DVD RELEASE DATE:  9-14-2010

ANALYSIS:  Dastan is the adopted son of a royal family of Persia- a prince of no royal blood.   He and his brothers invade a city believing it to have weapons destined for an enemy.   Dastan gets entangled with the princess of the city, Tamina.   Soon he finds himself on the run after being framed for the death of the King of Persia (his adopted father).   Someone in the royal family is also after a dagger that can rewind time and Tamina was supposed to guard it.  She even tries to get the dagger back from Dastan.

 

PRINCE OF PERSIA: THE SANDS OF TIME is a very enjoyable and entertaining film, but it proves to be ultimately pointless.   It is popcorn entertainment that makes you feeling empty after seeing the ending.   You have a fine cast of actors in a video game adventure which is nice to watch and yet you wouldn't be missing anything if you never seen this film.   Unless the script and ending are better for a sequel, I think I will skip out on PRINCE OF PERSIA the next time.

 

SPECIAL FETAURES:

AN UNSEEN WORLD: MAKING THE PRINCE OF PERSIA is a 15 minute making-off featurete that shows off the varied look of Morocco while showing the difficulties the weather posed (over 100 degree days and days when it really rained).   Cast and crew chime in on the size of the sets and the production design/ costume design.  Also see the use of Pakour in the stunts and Jake Gyllenhaal doing fight training.  This is the only extra on the DVD while the Blu-ray has a deleted scene and an interactive feature that takes you into 40 different featurettes.

 

FINAL ANALYSIS:  PRINCE OF PERSIA- THE SANDS OF TIMES is pointless and yet entertaining.   I wish they included the deleted scene on the DVD.
