Movie Review - Prince of Persia

I thought when I saw Robin Hood that it would be hard to beat. But Prince of Persia does. I enjoyed this movie on every level. My friend and I who was with me in Regina, Sask. when I saw it both agreed - it was great!!! What did I like. Well first of all I find that movies depend upon the editing of a movie. I think Editors are not rated high enough. I have seen movies which were really good destroyed by bad editing. The editing in this was wonderful. Scene followed scene in quick succession and you got to follow the story line easily. The director, playwright, whoever took their time setting up the story. You got to understand who this Prince was. You got to understand the underlying tensions existing and then when the story finally kicks into gear you get the full picture. It is exciting, it is colorful, it is well acted, well directed, well everything and I cannot believe anyone would not enjoy this movie. The beautiful scenes of the desert, the colors were magnificent, never mind the body on Jake rippling away. I also loved the jumping (which reminded me of 007 -Daniel Craig in Casino Royale at the beginning of the movie, jumping over buildings etc. Also some of the scenes also reminded me of Indiana Jones movies. I did not care, because it was fun. This movie is worth seeing once, twice maybe even three times. Therefore it gets 5 out of 5 stars.
