Review: Prince Of Persia Movie

Jake Gyllenhaal from the prince of persia posterJust watched this film and it was great seeing the game that I originally saw played on the Apple II. I could have swore there was a Commodore64 version but couldn’t find a reference to it but that was over 20 years ago, but I did play the game before. It was a fun game then and from what I have seen of my son playing some of the newer versions, it is still a fun game. But this review is about the movie and not the game, just giving a pit of insight is all.

Any way, the film is great. It has Destan being played Jake Gyllenhaal who was the real lead of The Day After Tomorrow in my opinion as he was the one stuck in NY City. This is a film about how the prince came to be and his humble origins. You see he was not born a prince but was made a prince by the king of Persia just for standing up and doing what was right. The king saw it and after finding out that he was an orphan the king adopted him as his own. That is how he came to be a prince of Persia and as he had no royal blood, a safe son as he would not have designs on the throne.

Review: Sahara – Film based on Clive Cussler book

This entry was posted in Action, DVD, Videos & Movies by Cleave on

This film has the talents of Mtthew McConaughey as Dirk Pitt with Steve Zahn and Penelope Cruz backing him up in this wild adventure in search of a sunken confederate ship that is actually covered by sand in a dry riverbed up the Niger River. The film is based on a Clive Cussler novel of the same name.

The film opens up with a view of what could only be Dirk’s cabin on a NUMA ship that is recovering the stone sarcophagus of a dead king off the coast of Nigeria. This film is full of intrigue and excitement and with it falling short of Cussler’s expectations the book mut be fantastic. I do hope another director and producer can talk him into letting them do a film the way that Cussler would like to see it done. That would be one hell of a film just the works that I have read from him.
