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.

I know little to nothing about Tom Hiddleston, but he seems like a really nice guy, and I'd hate for Taylor to ruin his reputation. However, that isn't why I dislike their relationship. I dislike the fact that they are together because Taylor cheated on Calvin Harris with him and is playing the victim, as she does. Once her and Tom split, which they- inevitably- eventually will, she is going to blame it all on him although it will not be his fault. (If Tom is to ever cheat on her, she has absolutely no right to cry and whine about it. Maybe it'll be his fault, but it won't be his fault, if you get what I'm saying.) "EndlessDream" wrote:I give them 2 months until they break up.  That's a bit generous, considering Taylor's non-exhaustive track record. But you're probably right, yeah. 2 months, maybe 3.

I give them 2 months until they break up. And it won't be Tom's fault. Hopefully it will happen before I spend a day with Tom so that there is no chance he would bring Taylor with him. Also, yes, she is just using guys for music.
