Trivia

Screenwriter Robin Morningstar approached the property owner Jordan Mechner with a script based on the original Prince of Persia (1989) game of the franchise, the aim being working as a team to get a film made. He and his materials were abruptly exorcised before Disney bought the film rights to the series. The Disney film focuses on the much-later Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2003) story arc, whilst the game canon seemingly reboots well clear of its origins with a new game titled simply Prince of Persia (2008). Morningstar's script, much like the original 1989 canon, is out in the cold. (This was referred to briefly during interview in Retro Gamer Magazine Issue 51.) See more »

Goofs

At the very end of the movie the setting sun moves from right to left, which can only be viewed like that on the Southern hemisphere. The Persian Empire was on the Northern hemisphere. (Either the movie makers used a reversed sunrise viewed from the Northern hemisphere, to make it look like a sunset but forgot to mirror the movie or they did it intentionally showing a sunrise going back in time, which is not completely unlikely since the movie revolves around time travel, but really nothing indicates to that) 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.

Underrated
29 May 2010 | by (Brunei Darussalam) – See all my reviews

I didn't expect much from this movie, and wasn't planning on watching it after watching the trailer, which had somehow managed to butcher the action sequences which turned to be pretty good in the movie. It hardly depicted the movie for what it made out to be, so i'm more than glad that i did. At first glance Jake wouldn't be my first choice for the role of the prince as i didn't think he really looked the part, with his slightly goofy looking demeanor, but he made up for it as he certainly played the part(and thanks to the costume designer, dressed the part), coupled with a good body double the parkour wasn't far off either. There was good chemistry between the male and female leads, however, granted perhaps overplayed in less than idyllic moments for pda haha, which some might find cliché but hardly something to dwell on in this pretty awesome movie so its not as bad as other critics claim. It offers aesthetically pleasing graphics (as to be expected of the people who worked on the pirates of the Caribbean) and although deviated from the plot of the game, the important aspects blended well and made for an enjoyable, and not totally predictable storyline. Another epic jerry epic i say. I sincerely hope they make a sequel, especially if the the dark prince is involved in the storyline, that would be badass (magma cracks already showing on the prince's body during slow mo time travel scenes so fingers crossed)
