As the Persian army is entering the city, a soldier is carrying a pole carrying on the tip the crescent moon of Islam. If the film takes place in 4-6th century as claimed, this is early by about 400 years. (The moon appears to be a 'smile' as in that part of the world, a crescent moon runs from 9 o'clock to 3 o'clock.) 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.

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.
