When an unconfident young woman is cursed with an old body by a spiteful witch, her only chance of breaking the spell lies with a self-indulgent yet insecure young wizard and his companions in his legged, walking home.
Set in the mystical lands of Persia, a rogue prince and a mysterious princess race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time -- a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world. Written by
Walt Disney Pictures
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.

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.

6.4/10? very very underrated!! Deserves much more!
WOW,i just came back from the I-max cinema and this movie was so so good! Prince of Persia makes Pirates of the Caribbean look like a joke..
I always loved the Prince of Persia games played the 2d ones and all the way up to two thrones, this movie had much resemblance to the game, but unlike other video game movies it wasn't trying to hard to show it off to the audience.Best video game movie without a doubt!
I think the reason some people are rating this so low is because they are USED to rating video game movies so low as they have all failed up to now!
This movie deserves a solid 7.5/10.Ill rate it 10 right now because I'm just so amazed of how much i enjoyed this movie.
IF YOU GO INTO THE CINEMA TAKING THIS MOVIE SO SERIOUSLY YOU WILL BE DISAPPOINTED. This movie doesn't try to be what its not.
It has amazing park-our,good romance, amazing action and fabulous special effects. I recommend this movie to everyone cause its truly awesome!
