I have to review this movie because it was a great one. Really grabs you right from the start and everything about the story is very engaging. Whether its the struggle of good vs evil, the testing of family bonds, the romance with a gorgeous & mystical beauty, or the well choreographed action. There’s some great sword fights, and parkour-style stealth & escape scenes to match the Prince of Persia video games. Even the visual elements in a mostly desert theme attract your attention. In many ways the story is rather predictable, but it doesn’t take away from the well developed plot that always keeps things interesting. Its a Disney movie that reminded me of Aladdin in a lot of aspects, with an ancient settings filled with kings & magic, which includes time travel that takes you back and forth through parts of the story to relive them with a different outcome.
I highly recommend this movie, it was even better than Salt to me. It does also share the unrealistic aspects that created a lot of critics of Salt though. So iIf you don’t have any imagination and aren’t open-minded like those people, then this probably wouldn’t be a movie for you either.
