In February 2008, Iranian star Golshifteh Farahani was invited to do a screen test in London along with Gemma Arterton for the role of Tamina but she was arrested at the airport by the Iranian authorities & banned from leaving the country for six months because she had played in Ridley Scott's Body of Lies (2008) See more »
In the second half of the film, two lines of audio play twice. When explaining the importance of the dagger, Tamina says, "The secret guardian temple outside Alamut is a sanctuary, the one place the dagger can be hidden safely," and then, "Give me back the dagger, so that I can take it there." When they reach the temple, the same audio is used, dubbed in while her back is to the camera. The first line has been trimmed to, "The... sanctuary, the one place the dagger can be hidden safely" while the second line is used exactly. You can tell by the intonation of her voice and pacing of her words. See more »
Long ago in a land far away, there once rose an empire that stretched from the steppes of China to the shores of the Mediterranean. That empire was Persia. Fierce in battle, wise in victory. Where the Persian sword went, order followed. The Persian king, Sharaman, ruled with his brother, Nizam, upon the principles of loyalty and brotherhood.

First of all when I read some of the reviews about this movie all my excitement was drained but I went to see it anyway. What do you now, the movie was great. It was fun, had a lot of action in it, the CGI was nice (excecpt few scenes in the beginning). I thought acting was nice Gyllenhaal (prince) and Arterton (Princess) did a good job in my opinion. As a fun of the game; the script wasn't entirely accurate just like most of the movies based on games but it didn't stray too far either. OK it was not the perfect movie but it was something that I would go and watch its sequel.
Overall I enjoyed myself and I believe if you go open minded you will enjoy yourself too.
