    Hmm… I would agree that the gigantic time travel towards the end of the film was a huge cop out and ended up nowhere interesting… but overall I would give “Prince of Persia” a pass… it is adventurous and harmless…

      It is adventurous I’ll give you that. I mean it’s pure fluff, however it had great potential to be a well rounded film and not just an action-entertainer. I focused on the time travel aspect, but the movie did have other problems; the screenplay was predictable, the dialogue horrendous, performances wooden… it was like THE SCORPIAN KING sans The Rock.

      I realize I’m being harsh… but bad movies don’t deserve objectivity. And at the end of the day, my rants are based on a storytelling perspective… not personal tastes and likes. There’s bad movies even I like from an entertaining perspective… just wait for my NINJA ASSASIN review… 😉
