During the invasion of Alamut at the beginning of the movie, there is a scene where Dastan is about to jump off of a wooden contraption. He stops for a moment to get his bearings, during which the camera focuses on him while moving around him in a circular motion. While this very unique scene never happens in any of the Prince of Persia games, it is an iconic feature of the Assassin's Creed franchise; in all of the Assassin's Creed games, the assassins ascend to high vantage points to get their bearings, an event that is presented in a nearly identical fashion and with similar musical cues as the way it is presented in this movie. This is likely an intentional homage to Assassin's Creed (which was created many years before this film), as the Creed series is considered to be the spiritual (and more successful) successor to the Prince of Persia series.

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.
