Trivia

Dastan is a name from Ferdowsi's Shahnameh that means "the trickster". See more »

Goofs

When Dastan is on the run from the Persian soldiers in Avrat, he jumps down into a building and onto a railing. When he pulls himself up over the rail, as he plants his feet on the floor, you can see where the leather flaps of his "boots" stop and show his athletic shoes underneath. 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.
