In this movie, characters are prominently seen handling apples and pomegranates. Pomegranates were considered the "original" apples, and were symbols of strength to the Persian armies. See more »
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 »
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.

My friend dragged me to this movie, I am usually picky and wouldn't have seen this on my own but there I was in the theater on my friends insistence watching Prince of Persia. Surprisingly it was pretty good for a summer movie meant to entertain. I was never a fan of the main actor in this movie, but he was good in the role as the Prince of Persia who was not royal born.
There are lots of jumping and sequences that remind of video games where you have to do fancy acrobatics to get to the next point, and good action scenes in the movie. It kind of reminded me of "The Mummy", but of course wasn't as good, but did have a similar vibe going on.
The computer generated backgrounds were excellent and showed exotic fantasy architecture of middle eastern flavor and normally I would hate that a lot of the movie had computer graphics as backgrounds but this was done so well I have to make an exception.
For other picky movie goers like me I can give you a recommendation for this movie, it is a fun lightweight summer movie and you will have a good time watching it.
