Prince of Persia - beyond expectations
Prince Danstan : an orphan raised a Prince selected by the Kind due to his character and courage.
Princess Tamina: protector of the dagger and the sands of time
A love story with equality and understanding of each others burdens and responsibilities!Is there a book about it?
Nop. Googled it...
'Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is a 2010 fantasy-adventure film written by Jordan Mechner, Boaz Yakin, Doug Miro, and Carlo Bernard;'

So I wasn't quite drawn from its publicity. Mostly it was Jake with his amazing new abs and topless stills which did not do it for me. The movie has alot more to offer and with different marketing would attract more crowd I believe.
The story was amazing, the fighting invigorating, and the chemistry between the protagonists explosive!
There were some parts that didn't bond but it paid back in fantastic costumes and imagination!
The concept of time travelling reminded me the Nicolas Cage movie - when was it? -yes, Next (2007) where the movie ended up in the beginning since he had the gift of seeing the outcome of the strings of choices he made, and it ended up that he foresaw a whole movie's worth of choices..:)
Jake Jake Jake @ first I thought it wouldn't be any good for him to go macho and muscly but he proved me wrong. He is over-muscled -arlond schwarzenegger style- where veins look ready to pop but with his character it gave his role a great match!!!
So go ahead watch it with a bucket of pop corn because this movie rocks!!!!
