Movie Reviews

  • unsatisfying because of the way it gets to the ending
    2.5 of 4 by James Berardinelli [ReelViews ]
  • two hours of raging flames, rattling sabers, racing ostriches, and an ex-Bond girl with a spray-on tan delivering snooty pronouncements about "destiny"
    2 of 4 by Steven Rea [Philadelphia Inquirer ]
  • too unimaginative to sweep us away
    2 of 4 by Claudia Puig [USA Today ]
  • too cozy and safe to excite the senses
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Travers [Rolling Stone ]
  • the "Prince" spectacle falls short in ways less comic, more pointless and just not very much fun
    1.5 of 4 by Ted Fry [Seattle Times ]
  • silly, derivative, convoluted nonsense
    1.5 of 4 by Connie Ogle [Miami Herald ]
  • Pity the film doesn't know when to end
    2.5 of 4 by Peter Howell [Toronto Star ]
  • perfectly painless mush. The movie is irrepressibly silly
    by Manohla Dargis [NY Times ]
  • Like any video game, "Prince of Persia" has its moments. Alas, once it's over, it's also just as forgettable
    2.5 of 5 by Bill Goodykoontz [Arizona Republic ]
  • It's too chatty
    2.5 of 4 by Roger Moore [Orlando Sentinel ]
  • It's like two hours of July 4th fireworks, only with flying swords and sandstorms, and raging battles and mystical palaces rising out of the desert
    3.5 of 5 by Betsy Sharkey [LA Times ]
  • it's a magic carpet ride
    2.5 of 4 by Joe Williams [St. Louis Post-Dispatch ]
  • goes pretty well
    Review rate : B by Lisa Schwarzbaum [Entertainment Weekly ]
  • destined to disappear into the quicksand of time, too innocuous to be hated, too bland to be remembered, just awaiting some bright optimist in a distant future to press the do-over button
    2 of 4 by Rick Groen [Globe and Mail ]
  • a forgettable action-adventure tale of destiny, deceit and power
    2 of 4 by Stanley A. Miller II [Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ]
  • "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time" is as barren an adventure flick you'll ever unearth
    1 of 5 by Joe Neumaier [NY Daily News ]
  • "Prince of Persia" will inspire filmmakers for years to come. They will watch it and say, "What a mess. I can do better"
    1.5 of 4 by Colin Covert [Minneapolis Star Tribune ]
