Ever since before i was not really into fantasy/ mystical and science fiction type of movies. But because of my husband’s interest i was influenced to watch and appreciate those type of movie genres.
Last Saturday May 29, 2010 we went out to chill and watched on the big screen the “Prince of Persia”. According to my husband it used to be a famous video game that he used to play. We have already watched a number of fantasy movies and it is one of the “okay” movies.
The story is about this young Dastan who was adopted from the streets of Nasaf by King Sharaman of Persia,grows up amongst royalty and quickly earns his place as a mighty warrior and prince. As his brothers Garsiv and Tus plan battle strategies, a spy sends word that the Holy City of Alamut has been supplying weapons to enemies of Persia. Taking matters into his own hands, Tus orders an attack on the sacred city and upon its fall Dastan encounters the beautiful Princess Tamina.
When King Sharaman dies under mysterious circumstances shortly after, and Dastan is accused of his murder, he flees with the princess on a harrowing mission to clear his name. Learning from Tamina the true motives behind Alamut’s invasion, Dastan will attempt to prevent the Sands of Time from falling into the wrong hands.
