PRINCE OF PER­SIA: THE SANDS OF TIME

Geelong Advertiser - TV Guide - - MOVIES -

SEVEN, Satur­day, 9pm, M ( 2010)

Based on the pop­u­lar video game se­ries, this rip­ping ad­ven­ture yarn is a typ­i­cal Jerry Bruck­heimer block­buster – plenty for the eyes to feast on but lit­tle to nour­ish the brain. Set in 6th- cen­tury Per­sia, nim­ble street dweller Das­tan ( Jake Gyl­len­haal, above) finds him­self thrust into the un­likely role of heir to the throne, which even­tu­ally sees him framed for an as­sas­si­na­tion be­fore com­ing into con­flict with ruth­less war­lord Nizam ( Ben Kings­ley). If you al­low the ac­tion flick’s re­lent­less pace and im­pres­sive CGI to dis­tract you from its deriva­tive­ness, you’ll be roy­ally en­ter­tained.
