Goofs

At the very end of the movie the setting sun moves from right to left, which can only be viewed like that on the Southern hemisphere. The Persian Empire was on the Northern hemisphere. (Either the movie makers used a reversed sunrise viewed from the Northern hemisphere, to make it look like a sunset but forgot to mirror the movie or they did it intentionally showing a sunrise going back in time, which is not completely unlikely since the movie revolves around time travel, but really nothing indicates to that.)

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.

Prince of persia
15 February 2020 | by MR_HeracliusSee all my reviews

Having never played the game I didn't know much about what the plot was about but the games were big hits and popular enough to make a live action movie so I eventually gave it a watch and was very surprised, The story is very loyal to the games from what I seen in the games, Some nice action scenes and good effects, I didn't like the choice of actors but they did ok, As far as game to movies go it's probably one of the better ones, Even if it won't stand the test of time (No pun intended) I think maybe it could of been better if it wasn't made by Disney as they like to tone films down so much that if you're over the age of 11 it's not as enjoyable, But it could of been much worse so I can't complain too much, A good family film that is easy to watch even if you haven't played any of the games.
