FILM REVIEW: Summer
films in general are well known for their undeveloped non sense
screenplays; however at the same time those same summer films
manage to overcome the grant majority of their flaws by
displaying and extravaganza of action and special effects making
those films highly entertaining, but not memorable. This is the
case of Prince of Persia: Sands of Time, a highly anticipated
film that fells short in challenging audience’s brains with a
weak story line, but that manages to produce enough
entertainment to make it an acceptable summer movie.
Saying that Prince of Persia is a waste of time or a complete
failure is not true and it won’t be fair for the cast and
Jerry Bruckheimer, the effort is visible for the most part of
the film; however more was expected.
Visually speaking the film has all the ingredients of a Jerry
Bruckheimer production, meeting the minimum requirements of a
typical summer blockbuster. Amazing stunts, good visual effects
and intense fighting scenes are just the only working elements
in favor of Price of Persia.
The cast in general helps the film overcome it weakness; however
they didn’t have any relevant material to perform at a higher
level. The only one that was able to make the best out of this
non-sense screenplay was Alfred Molina in his role of Sheik Amar,
who gave the film something to smile about.
Overall Prince of Persia: Sands of Time disappoints because it
was one of the most anticipated movies of the season and it
failed to deliver as a whole; nevertheless the film provides
enough entertainment to be considered a decent choice this

preserving its theatrical format. The picture is just
flawless, bringing to perfection the special effects of the film. Not only the picture looks great in
this release, also the sound it is good, a 5.1 DTS-HD Master

good complement to the picture. It also includes
