If I weren’t such a fan of the Prince of Persia video game series, I would have really disliked Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time. The acting was a mixed bag of decent and stupid sauce and the action, dialogue, romance and overall story arch were very unoriginal. However, all of this was expected, and even though I kind of wish there was more to it, it was enjoyable, but that is mostly due to my adoration for the franchise. So here’s the gist: if you like the series, go see it in theaters, if you don’t, forget it!

Verdict: Go See It In Theaters
