Prince Of Persia The Sands Of Time Fixed

Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) is an unusual PRINCE OF PERSIA; he's a street orphan the righteous King Sharaman (Ronald Pickup) adopts after seeing him act bravely in the market square. Fifteen years after his adoption, Dastan leads a charge on the sacred city of Alamut based on iffy intelligence. The beautiful Princess of Alamut, Tamina (Gemma Arterton) is betrothed to Dastan, but immediately after the announcement, King Sharaman dies wearing a poisoned cloak an innocent Dastan presented to him. On the run, Dastan and Tamina try to evade capture by Persian soldiers while they attempt to figure out which Persian member of court actually killed the king and protect a mystical dagger that can disastrously turn back "the sands of time."

On the opening level, just after the room in which you first see the sands of time / giant hourglass, you find a water-filled passage that has 6 murals on the walls. The contents of the murals seem to describe the legendary history of the sands of time :

First, let us pause and go back to the late 80s. What made the original 1989 Prince of Persia special? Was it the gripping narrative? Or perhaps a faithful recreation of a palace in ancient Persia? No, those definitely would not be the right choices. Rather, they would be the high rhythm action gameplay, the incredibly smooth movement of the prince, along with the exquisite graphics. Well, for the time.

Anyway, Dastan climbs the city walls, pours flaming oil on its guards, etc., and then encounters the beautiful Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton). She possesses the Dagger of Time, which is an honest-to-God WMD, since if it's switched on too long, all the sands of time will run out, and it's back to the Big Bang.

Inspired by the video game, the Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time follows the adventures of Prince Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) as he tries to help a beautiful princess (Gemma Arterton) safeguard a magical dagger capable of altering time and giving its possessor great power.

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a 2003 video game and the first chapter in the newer Prince of Persia trilogy developed by Ubisoft. It reproduced the series' popular combination of combat and climbing puzzles, and added Le Parkour and what is still the most successful use of time-distortion effects (previously seen in such games as Max Payne and Blinx: The Time Sweeper), as well as creating an entirely new story with a more complex hero, an expanded role for the princess, and one doozy of a plot twist.

The Prince is a young man accompanying his father to an Indian-like kingdom, whose Vizier betrayed them to the Prince's armies. Among the spoils of that kingdom is a large hourglass called "The Sands of Time" and a dagger that the Prince claims. The Vizier then tricks the Prince into opening the hourglass and unleashing the curse of the sands upon the land of Persia. Confused over what happened, he finds himself in the company of Farah, a princess of the kingdom he just ransacked and who has knowledge of what he has done, and has to go fix what he broke.

In Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, embark on a journey of scorched sands and ancient legends. A young prince, drawn to the dark powers of a magic dagger, unleashes a deadly evil upon a beautiful kingdom. Guide the Prince on his quest to reverse the curse by using the Sands of Time, a power which allows you to erase the past, see into the future and slow down the present. Perform gravity-defying acrobatics and swashbuckling attacks in a staggering array of landscapes and kingdoms. Restore peace to the land and fulfill your destiny.

Dastan catches up to Tamina just as a sand storm begins. They set up a tent and wait it out. Tamina tells him the story of the dagger: The gods waged a war of elements against the people of the planet until one young girl was willing to give her life to stop them. The Gods gave her a gift: the dagger of time which allowed the user to turn back. She removed the dagger from a mountain wall and a temple was built around it. Alamut was built over the Hour Glass, which houses the sands of Time. Dastan realizes that Nizam wants to break the seal on the Hour Glass in order to change history and go back to a specific day: When Nizam and Sharaman were children, they went hunting and Nizam saved Sharaman from a lioness. Dastan postulates that Nizam will go back to that time and not act, resulting in Sharaman's death and erasing the future. Tamina warns him that if the dagger is misused, its raw energy will destroy Alamut and then go on to destroy the world.

When filming began, the film's release date was postponed to May 28, 2010, with the studio seeking enough time for the post-production process in designing the film's special effects. The profit margin on the Pirates of the Caribbean films was compromised by overspending as special effects teams rushed to complete the films for their release dates. Variety also ascribed the postponement to avoiding the potential 2008 Screen Actors Guild strike so the studio could ensure that the film leads to a "mega-franchise" similar to its successful Pirates of the Caribbean series. Other reasons for the release date change were that the film was originally scheduled a week before Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen, and Disney needed more time to co-ordinate its marketing campaign. Gyllenhaal claims he "over-prepared" for the role, gaining five or six pounds of muscle. The actor says, "I never knew how much they were going to ask me to do, so I just made sure I'd be hopefully able to do anything." Gemma Arterton was announced to play the role of protagonist Tamina, and Arterton reported she practiced horse back riding in Madrid before filming. Ben Kingsley was to portray the film's antagonist, Nizam. Alfred Molina was to portray a character named Sheik Amar, who becomes a mentor to the prince. Toby Kebbell was to play Prince Garsiv, Dastan's brother and head of the Persian army. Richard Coyle was cast as the eldest brother Crown prince Tus and William Foster was cast as young Dastan based on his experience in parkour. The leading characters of the film all speak with recognisably English accents.

We see our prince making the faithful mistake of opening the Sands of Time with his infamous dagger, and we all know the rest from there. A classic tale of love and adventure ensures, with the element of time being our biggest adversary.

and Kelvin CedenoIt's a good thing that Jerry Bruckheimer isn't in elementary school anymore, because having to do a "how I spent my summer" report could be pretty painful for him. Sure, he could talk about how production began on a fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie and how shooting in 3-D will rejuvenate a franchise that many feel has run its course. But, the more interesting and more humiliating news would be the flatline performance of not one but two mega-budget fantasy films he produced with Disney.Bruckheimer's career dates back nearly forty years and his history of profitability began at Paramount in the 1980s, where he made such blockbusters as Beverly Hills Cop and Top Gun. In the 1990s, Bruckheimer took his high-octane action stylings to Disney, where he gave the adult Touchstone and Hollywood banners hits like Armageddon and The Rock. With 2003's debut Pirates of the Caribbean movie, easily his top performer up till then, Bruckheimer found a new calling for edgy, exciting adventures that could play to practically all audiences. Between that seafaring series' record-setting grosses and the kindred PG-rated National Treasure movies, Bruckheimer's golden touch was unquestionable and, along with Pixar, his output was one of the only certainties at Walt Disney Pictures.After an empty 2008, cracks began to show in the Disney-Bruckheimer alliance last year when two movies that departed from the formula (the CGI-heavy guinea pig action-comedy G-Force and Touchstone chick lit flick Confessions of a Shopaholic) failed to exceed or even meet expectations. Such receptions were peachy, however, compared to this summer's offerings, which delivered one of the weakest 1-2 punches in the history of tentpole filmmaking. Whether you blame the timing, the marketing, or the films themselves, Bruckheimer's two releases were met with remarkable apathy and disinterest, at least in their native United States. Adapted from a video game series introduced in 1989 (specifically the 2003 installment of the same name), Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time was supposed to be big. Pirates of the Caribbean big. In fact, this epic Middle Eastern adventure had a reported production budget of $200 million, $60 M more than what was spent on Curse of the Black Pearl (ignoring seven years of inflation).Set in the sixth century, the film centers on Dastan, whose actions on the street as an orphan boy catch the eye of Sharaman (Ronald Pickup), king of the vast Persian Empire. The king adopts the boy, who joins two older brothers as heirs to the throne. Our story jumps ahead fifteen years when a now adult Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) and his two fellow princes (Richard Coyle, Reece Ritchie) are capable men of action. On the counsel of Uncle Nizam (Ben Kingsley), Sharaman's sons lead armies into nearby city Alamut, which is suspected of forging weapons for Persia's enemies. Alamut's Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton), renowned for her beauty, is brought to the king as a potential spouse for the eldest son. King Sharaman feels she'd be better off as unwed Dastan's first wife than another mate for Tus.Before anything else can happen, the king is killed, evidently burned by a poisoned robe presented to him by Dastan. Accused of patricide, Dastan takes off with Tamina, thus setting up the hero's journey that's a requisite of such a film. With his innocence never in doubt to us, Dastan seeks to clear his name, make things right, and simply stay alive with Persia's army after him and a rich reward on his head. The "Sands of Time" subtitle comes into play by the powerful dagger Dastan had acquired in Alamut. With the press of a button, the bejeweled crystal sword can rewind time, enough to reverse a single deadly mistake. Tamina explains the device's sacred history, which is determined to be the motivation of the treacherous individual who framed Dastan for the king's murder. Prince of Persia applies Bruckheimer sensibilities to the sword and sandal tale, a genre the producer has previously shunned. The characters are archetypal, the themes are universal, and the movie is designed to make visceral impact at every opportunity. As many have noted, the piece neatly aligns with the Pirates of the Caribbean world in its composition. If Gyllenhaal and Arterton can easily be compared to the Orlando Bloom and Keira Knightley parts, then Alfred Molina is clearly the Jack Sparrow of the piece (complete with mascara and rock star hair), supplying scene-stealing pizzazz as ambiguous taxation-loathing entrepreneur Sheik Amar. Molina doesn't make as large of an impression as Johnny Depp's pirate and his limited screentime ensures that a Lead Actor Oscar nomination is out of the question, but he provides flavor the film could use more of.Strenuous workouts may make muscles but they do not make an action star and Gyllenhaal never has the screen presence that his lead role demands. Adopting a British accent that most of his castmates naturally have, dopey-eyed Gyllenhaal is more believable as a Persian than as a fierce, daring hero. Arterton too is unconvincing as an outspoken princess who's somehow also an expert warrior. Saddled with cheesy dialogue, their inevitable romantic tension is almost entirely void of sparks.The film doesn't crumble at that weak core, however. The pacing remains unusually good. The busy Pirates movies grew from well over two hours to close to three. Persia checks in at a more traditional 116 minutes with end credits. Sure, you could say that Persia is overcooked and with almost $2 million spent per minute, who could argue otherwise? But the film at least keeps moving, never digging its feet in for an overlong set piece. Action is delivered in spades, and the PG-13 carnage is more violent than it needs to be. But we're spared the big, meaningless army battles of clanging close-ups that weaken far better fare. Director Mike Newell (prepped for such a large spectacle by helming Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) makes sure to keep a narrow, human focus on high-energy bursts. If there were stronger characters and performances to sustain that attention, he might have had something here. The story's barely-coded indictment of more recent goings-on near modern-day Persia, i.e. Iraq (using a non-existent weapons threat to mine a natural resource) doesn't help matters. Grossing just $90 million in North America (and that's with some siphoning of Toy Story 3's copious earnings), Prince of Persia was one of the all-time most expensive domestic flops at Disney or anywhere else. Foreign moviegoers, who in recent years have contributed considerably more to spectacle cinema than American audiences, cushioned the blow by spending nearly $250 million on the film to date. Those international grosses might even lift the movie to profitability once theater cuts and ample marketing costs are factored. Nevertheless, the numbers were far below the Pirates grosses that Disney and Bruckheimer were seeking and it seems certain we'll never see a sequel to this film.The poor performance probably contributes to Prince of Persia's relatively prompt appearance on home video. Beating the holiday season rush (that includes most summer movies) by a good seven weeks, Prince of Persia hits stores on Tuesday, in a single-disc DVD, a single-disc Blu-ray, and the subject of this review, a 3-Disc Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy combo pack. 041b061a72
