    If I had a "type" that's it :P

    It doesn't look that bad to be honest.. It's almost got that "Pirates of the Caribbean, but in Persia!" feel.

    Just saw it yesterday, and I was glad I was invited. The movie wouldn't have deserved my money. It's really just yet another action movie, and I was almost disappointed, that a mere ten minutes in, there already was a large scale fight. Had a "we HAVE to keep up a really fast pace, or it's boring"-feel, which usually emerges if the story is too flat.
    The story actually HAD great potential, and could be modeled so nicely into a mystical thriller, but no, action wherever it may fit (or even not).

    What makes things worse: I think that actress is of no particular beauty to speak of, nor was her acting.

    Sorry for the negativity, but that's how I perceived it

    Gemma was absolutely gorgeous but I've always had an issue with her voice. It's so squeaky and grating. Less talking, more looking cute would have been nice.

    Also-- Jake Gyllenhaal's accent made my ears bleed.

    Re: Prince of persia

    It's not that there were any blunt errors, but there is more to it than delivering your lines, and move the way you're supposed to. She just didn't come across like a princess, and was generally not really charismatic. More like a stock actor that is capable of playing a role well enough, but the viewer will have forgotten about in 2 weeks entirely. I didn't mean to say her performance was bad, just average, so that there would be no reason to recognize her for it.
    That of course does not necessarily have to be her fault. A bad script or poor casting can screw over even the best actors as well. At least for this movie, something just didn't seem to work out like it could.

    The thingy about beauty is of course highly subjective

    Are you serious?She was one of the reasons this movie was mediocre when it could have been really good.
    She was totally anti-climatic,boring,not even hot and a really bad actress.Thank god Gyllenhaal's good acting helped me forget how horrible she was.

    Re: Prince of persia

    She's hot, but not an amazing actress. Gyllenhaal's performance was pretty good, but the quality of some of the jumps were somewhat sketchy, you could tell that 'he' had help from something, instead of it just looking natural.

    VERY good movie. Only gaming -> movie i'v ever seen that was soo accurate.

    9.3/10 for sure.

    Re: Prince of persia

    Not bad, quality of script could have been better, plot and action feels a little flat. The girl's voice is annoying as hell...so whiny and squeaky. But compare with other video game based movies, this one comes on top.

    Seriously , the girl did it all ;D
    When the girl was missing for like 10 minutes the movie was starting to get boring !
    also - snake dude was scary

    I will agree better than most video game movies, but it felt pretty average, the girl was hot, but not so great of an actress. Really, could have been done much better, im not saying it was bad, but it wasnt as great as everyone says it was, it was merely meh.
