  • A handsome, fast-paced and innocuous adventure that's easy to take but lacks epic scale. show more

  • The lesson here is simple: In the digital realm, the bigger the worse. What looks distinctive and believable in short takes and small doses can turn blatantly phony and deadly familiar when the scale is pumped up. Prince of Persia pumps itself up to the bursting point, and bursts. show more

  • How bad is Prince of Persia? Whether or not director Mike Newell is to blame, the action sequences lack verve and scope. show more
