Variety Review: Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Variety: "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" is silky to the touch, but slips from the mind all too easily. Based loosely on a series of popular videogames, producer Jerry Bruckheimer's passably enjoyable, antiquity-themed epic should satisfy its young male core demographic well enough, but won't connect with other auds on the level of Bruckheimer's "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise. Mike Newell's workmanlike helming is no embarrassment, but pic's lack of game-changing originality, distinguishing anarchic streak or 3D wow factor may relegate this to summertime also-ran status.

The story is too old to be commented.
