Dastan was just a young orphan living on the streets until the King of Persia witnessed Dastan save another young boy from certain death. The King rewarded Dastan’s bravery by adopting him as his own son.

Brotherly Love

Years pass and Dastan becomes a headstrong young man loyal to his family. Dastan joins his two brothers, Garsiv and Tus and his uncle Nizam to lead an army into the Holy City of Alamut. A spy told them Alamut has been secretly making weapons for Persia’s enemies, so the three brothers invade the city on the advice of their uncle.

The Dagger Of Time

In truth, Alamut is a peaceful city. The Persian army was misled—there are no weapons in Alamut. The beautiful Princess Tamina is the guardian of an ancient dagger that allows its owner the power to go back in time. Someone organized the invasion so they could steal the Dagger of Time. But who?

Dastan Is Framed

The King of Persia comes to Alamut to see his sons after battle, but when he’s mysteriously murdered, the blame is put on Dastan and he must flee the city. Dastan and Princess Tamina must discover who is behind the murder and find a way to stop them from using the Dagger of Time to change the past and unleash a giant sandstorm that will destroy the world.

The Bottom Line

The Prince of Persia mixes the secret tunnels and ancient gadgets of The Mummy with the rooftop acrobatics and flirty banter of Disney’s Aladdin. If the DVD feels like a video game that’s because it was based on one!

Jake Gyllenhaal might be a strange choice for a Persian prince, but his well placed smirks and fancy footwork will win you over. Creepy assassins called the Hassansins track Dastan through the desert. They unleash trained sand snakes and lethal fighting skills in some action-packed scenes so watch out for them. Check out The Sands of Time for some great action shots and a wild romp through the ancient streets of Persia.

Many of the reviews and critics say it's bad because they are only looking at it from 'comic to movie' perspective. It was still a really cool movie and you should go see it. I'd have to agree with this. The movie itself was great. I think some people looked at it poorly because they were expecting something more similar to the older films or comparing it too hard to the comics. I personally think that it was a great way to reinvent some of the characters.

"It's so hard to talk when you want to k-ll yourself. That's above and beyond everything else, and it's not a mental complaint-it's a physical thing, like it's physically hard to open your mouth and make the words come out. They don't come out smooth and in conjunction with your brain the way normal people's words do; they come out in chunks as if from a crushed-ice dispenser; you stumble on them as they gather behind your lower lip. So you just keep quiet.” Ned Vizzini, "It's Kind of a Funny Story"

“Isn't there something in living dangerously?' There's a great deal in it,' the Controller replied. 'Men and women must have their adrenals stimulated from time to time.' What?' questioned the Savage, uncomprehending. It's one of the conditions of perfect health. That's why we've made the V.P.S. treatments compulsory.' V.P.S.?' Violent Passion Surrogate. Regularly once a month. We flood the whole system with adrenin. It's the complete physiological equivalent of fear and rage. All the tonic effects of murdering Desdemona and being murdered by Othello, without any of the inconvenience.' But I like the inconveniences.' We don't,' said the Controller. 'We prefer to do things comfortably.' But I don't want comfort. I want God, I want poetry, I want real danger, I want freedom, I want goodness. I want sin.' In fact,' said Mustapha Mond, 'you're claiming the right to be unhappy. Not to mention the right to grow old and ugly and impotent; the right to have ######## and cancer, the right to have too little to eat; the right to be lousy; the right to live in constant apprehension of what may happen tomorrow; the right to catch typhoid; the right to be tortured by unspeakable pains of every kind.' There was a long silence. I claim them all,' said the Savage at last. Mustapha Mond shrugged his shoulders. 'You're welcome,' he said.”
