Trivia

It is stated that the handle of the dagger holds one minute's worth of the Sands of Time. The first time Dastan presses the jewel, he rewinds time by 32 seconds. The second time he presses it, he rewinds 23 seconds. This makes up 55 seconds, or almost the full minute of sand. After it's refilled, it's used twice again. Dastan uses it to rewind 16 seconds of time, and Tus uses it to rewind 44 seconds of time, using up exactly 60 seconds of sand. This reflects the actual time of the actions being undone from the moment of bodily repossession to the moment the jewel is pressed, as the time during which the user is in his out-of-body experience is slightly compressed by a few seconds or more.

Goofs

It takes Dastan and Tamina over a week to travel to the remote temple. But after the assassin gets the dagger, he is back in the city giving it to Nizam within a couple of hours. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Tus: [voiceover] 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.

It was entertaining and fun
22 May 2010 | by See all my reviews

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.
