Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time

Henry and I finally watched Prince of Persia - The Sands of Time. I've never liked Jake Gyllenhaal, but in this movie I do. There was one scene in the movie which reminded me of a PSP game my husband played where he jumps from a very high roof.

The movie starts with Dastan's childhood as an orphan, and how at an early age he was very adept with getting away from people who were chasing after him. The king saw something in him, and took him as his son. He grew up with the two other princes, and he had absolutely no envy or untoward feelings for any of his brothers - he loved the king so much and considered him and the other princes as his family.

Misguided by the king's brother, the princes overthrow a city for their uncle's own interest, a dagger which apparently has the time to rewind time. Dastan is mistaken as the one who killed the king, his brothers die, and Dastan and the princess, the guardian of the dagger are sent into an incredible journey to keep the dagger safe. I won't go into more details to not spoil the movie, but what I can say is that the action scenes were splendid.

The movie also shows that envy is a terrible disease to have, and that brothers should be brothers until the end. There's a reason why the movie is entitled The Sands of Time, and if you watch the movie, you'll find out why.
