Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time



I searched, and saw nothing on this, so I'm making a thread about it. Forgive me if there is one...the search function quite frankly sucks.

Anyways, I don't know what to make of this really. On one hand, it could be good...but on the other hand, Disney is doing it, and I don't trust them much with movies like this, so i'm entirely up in the air with this.

Disney made the first Pirate movie, and that was good. I'm actually pretty excited for this one. Hopefully it can be one of the movies that proves video games can be adapted to the big screen successfully. I think the best thing this movie has going for it is that it's based on the video games, but it has its own story.

Now the video game that they're making based on this movie? We'll see.

Well, the video game might be decent. If what is in my GI is any indication, the Prince will control more than just time this time around. He will also use the natural elements of the Earth, namely Earth(duh), Wind, Water, and Fire. That might be a giveaway to part of the plot. Not sure.

i hope this movie is a success, so it can pave the way for more video game movies, but this does not look like a very good adaptation of Prince of Persia. for one thing, he isn't even a Prince; he's a street urchin. so it's like Aladdin

also, it looks like they are making more of an Assassin's Creed movie than a PoP one

If they tried to make the movie too much like the game's story, they'd have to make one very, very long movie, where 2/3 of it would have never happened by the end of the story, which means people would probably be pissed.

I'm perfectly fine with a movie that seeks to capture the spirit of the games as opposed to their story.

well a trilogy is planned, right? plenty of room for story

don't get me wrong, it looks like a decent enough action movie, but a good PoP adaptation? maybe, maybe not, we'll have to wait and see. those are just some reservations i have

If they made a trilogy to go alongside the game trilogy, the first two movies will have been undone by the third and effectively would never have happened, which might work for some people, and might not. The average "movie public" is a bit different from the average gamer.

But I agree; we'll have to wait and see. Are you a PoP fan, my Beef?
