Prince Of Persia: The Sands Of Time

As planned, the birthday girl - Joanna and I with our friend Sunday, went to watch the movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time yesterday afternoon. It was a weekend so the movie house was packed as expected! I'm actually not used to watching movies on weekends because of the crowd. That's why I'm grateful that my rest days from work fall on weekdays. :D

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is based on a video game about a prince who teamed up with a princess to save the world from the enemies. I never played the game, unfortunately. I'm not into video games even when I was young anyways.

A typical story of good versus evil which is set in the lands of Persia. Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) who grew up as a young boy in the slums of Persia was adopted by King Sharaman (Ronald Pickup) after seeing his courage while being chased by the King's men in the market. He grew up as a Prince and a mighty warrior. His life changed after successfully invading the Holy City of Alamut where he found a mystical dagger that brings him to his Destiny.

After knowing the importance of the dagger from the beautiful Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton), together they made their way to saving the world from Dastan's Uncle who actually planned the killing of King Sharaman and the invasion of Alamut so he can have an ultimate power from the dagger. Prince Dastan and Princess Tamina have to deal with the tax evaders, the Hassansins, the snakes which by the way scared me the most! Grrrr!

To sum it all up, the movie was great! They've got amazing effects, great stunts and great story! I'm just glad we didn't watch it in 3D. Or else those freaking snakes will look sooo real! LOL! But to those who want the feel of the effects in the movie, I bet it's nice to watch it on 3D! Just don't tell me that I didn't warn you about the snakes! :D
