Messy failed attempt to original game.

Honestly I just didn't like the movie. I love the cast and it's not horrible but it's not very enjoyable either. The story is poor, characters seemed pretty uninteresting, one dimensional and the script is simply painful. At least I expected more exciting outdoor scenes not so much of the Animus machine. I'm sorry but it just falls short of its potential.
However I did like Michel's performance, the costumes and the action par cour parts.
I never play the video game but I saw other people play it and I'm quite sure playing the game is much more thrilling than watching the film. The movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was for from perfect but at least it was entertaining. 3-/5
