So I went out and saw the recently released Prince of Persia film. I'm sure you've all seen the commercials and all the gamers out there are very familiar with Prince of Persia.
I'm not a film critic, so I won't go into any huge details here. If you're a hardcore PoP fan, you might appreciate seeing the popular game brought to life on the big screen. The value of the film probably ends there, though. The acting is bad and the whole thing comes off as very cheesy. Some of the action sequences were neat, but dragged on with over the top action and not enough use of the sands of time. And I have to admit, action films definitely lose something when there's no REAL violence.
Unfortunately, everyone knows videogame movies have a reputation for suckage. Overall, PoP
was far better than the Street Fighter
, Super Mario
, Alone in the Dark
films, but inferior to Silent Hill
or Mortal Kombat
. Not a bad film. Not a good one either.
