Critic's Review Heading

Berardinelli, Internet Critic Full Review
Above Average With lots of running around and plenty of special effects, the only thing missing for the viewer is a game controller and the ability to replay some of the most challenging moves and jumps.

Roger Ebert Full Review
Average "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” is a children's story beefed up to appeal to young teens.

USA Today Full Review
Average In the end, despite a few entertaining scenes, this tale of swords, sandals and supernatural sands is too unimaginative to sweep us away.

The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 131 moviegoers:
CHILDREN:They all loved "Prince of Persia."
TEENS:EXCELLENT REVIEWS from both the males and females!
TWENTYSOMETHINGS:Most of the males loved "Prince of Persia," but a few only rated it average. All the females enjoyed this movie very much with most loving it.
ADULTS:The male reviews are somewhat disappointing. Only about a third truly loved "Prince of Persia." Another third rated it above average, which is good, but the last third only rated it "Good/Average," which is slightly disappointing. Almost all the females enjoyed "Prince of Persia" very much. Over half loved it and only a small percentage rated it average.


D ETAILED S TORYLINE
It wasn't Dastan's birthright to become a prince—it was his destiny. As a boy in 6th century Persia—one of the greatest empires the world has ever known— young Dastan is a street urchin, parentless and penniless. Threatened with severe punishment by a Persian Army captain after defending a youngster caught stealing an apple, Dastan is first spared, and then adopted, by the noble King Sharaman, who detects a touch of greatness in Dastan. Raised alongside Sharaman's sons Tus (Richard Coyle) and Garsiv (Toby Kebbell), and taught the ways of wisdom and nobility by his adoptive father and beloved uncle, Nizam (Kingsley), Dastan retains his rough edges while growing into a strong young warrior.
