Premiere - A popular video game turned movie that's much more exciting, entertaining, and playful than the trailers would have you believe. Gyllenhaal goes full-on action hero in this big-budget desert romp, and is equally matched by the gorgeous Gemma Arterton as a not-so-helpless princess. Established actors Ben Kinglsey and Alfred Molina also get to ham it up and easily keep pace with actors half their age. The main problem is one that also plagued Jerry Bruckheimer's Pirates of the Caribbean films: They're too long and overwritten. (To be fair, this doesn't have nearly as many dead spots as the Pirates trilogy.) Story is the most important part of any film, but two hours is pushing it.
