Prince of Persia Getting Better Reviews Than We Thought!

| Filed under: Jake GyllenhaalFilm Flickers


Behold the power of Jakey's abs!

Jake Gyllenhaal's family film Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is being pretty well-received by the critics!

Described as a "handsome, fast-paced and innocuous adventure," the film based on the video game is expected to do fairly well at the box office.

Are U going to see Prince of Persia?

    That's because you have no taste in movies Mario, how many times do we need to spell this out for you? You said Avatar would do bad, and I guess Cameron proved you massively wrong on that one, now didn't he?!

    No, I'm not going to see it. I'll wait for the book :)

  3. 3

    I would see Jake Gyllenhaal do anything. I would watch him read the phone aloud for 3 solid hours and be captivated the entire time.

  4. 4

    describing a movie as "handsome" seems a bit odd to me……..

  5. 5

    can't wait to see it!!

  6. 6

    originalsin999 how the fuck do you read the phone? Idiot.

  7. 7

    Hell yeah…even my 8 y.o daughter can't wait to see it……

    Uh… not a family film. Not even close.

    Man you're an idiot sometimes.

    The reviews are good. But Jake did the London premiere unescorted, as in alone, by himself, solo, companionless. So, Perez, back in Hollywood, tell us what's up.

    The trailer for this film is horrible. His accent is terrible. It's going to be a giant turd.

  11. 11

    he is soooooooo over-rated. He looks like a geek ffs, nothing special, just one of many mediocre 'actors' who hit it big time due to the lack of taste of teenage girls and gays like you Perez.

    That's only ONE review. This will surely reach below the 60%. Just wait.

    Funny how he failed to mention the rest of the line he quoted… "A handsome, fast-paced and innocuous adventure that's easy to take but lacks epic scale."

    RottenTomatoes.com has three reviews so far and only one is good. I don't think it's going to do that well review wise and I think it will do mediocre at the box office. Just my opinion anyway.

    don't know about the movie but that game was incredible, best one from the series. Hope they don't mess it up, let's c & describing a film as "handsome", that's just plain weird. Def gonna c it with my free tickets :)

    YES! YES! and YES! I never listen to reviews! After all they thought the English Patient was an Excellent movie and I hated that piece of crap! I have seen plenty of movies that I thought were great and got bad reviews and vice-a-versa..

  16. 16

    im not even a fan of gyllenhaal, but figured it would be a watch

  17. 17

    Interesting review. I detest British accents, even if faked, so I won't be going to see it. I do hope Jakey finally makes lots of money; that will compensate him for losing access to Witherspoon's. Of course his previous integrity is all gone now, but, hey, as he says himself, "why take me seriously." He knows he just a Hollywood puppet at heart. (Now if we only knew who his steady boy friend was.)

    OMG I saw a short interview with Jake promoting the movie yesterday, and he is soooo GAY! I have never seen one of his movies, so i could never judge but not only does he look gay, he sounds gay.
    What happened to macho guys playing these roles? This is a far stretch from Russell Crowe when he played Gladiator 10 yrs ago, at least Russell is a man. They might as well have had ElledDeGeneres play the Prince of persia.
    The only role Jake should play is Butt-Pirates of The Carribbean.

    I am SO there!!! I would also watch Jake Gyllenhaal read a telephone book , or do a TV commercial ! As far as I'm concerned all he's gotta do is show up.

    This movie is not a major work of art! It's like The Day After Tomorrow. Just a fun, summer movie. I am not expecting Shakespeare.

  20. 20

    Of course!, I'd pay to watch Jake lick stamps.

  21. 21

    I loved the game long time ago. A prince, in Persia, jumping platforms. So, where's the plot coming from?

  22. 22

    God, I'm going to see it. Even if the movie does suck, it will be worth sitting through it cause Jake G. is a fine piece of ass.

  23. 23

    my next boyfriend…you heard it here first exclusively on perezhilton.com i wil definitely be checking that movie out….with my vibrator…

  24. 24

    No I won't I'll be watching Sex and the City 2 opens the same weekend!!

  25. 25


  26. 26

    might check it out, even if it is stupid id like to see at least one stupid blockbuster this summer

  27. 27

    I like Jake shirtless as much as the next gay male but seriously, the movie is based on a videogame, looks terrible and opens against Sex and the City 2. It has flop written all it.

  28. 28

    Re: maxie pad – There have been several Prince of Persia's. The movie isn't based on the first, but on the reboot from a few years ago (Sands of Time, Warrior Within, Two Thrones). It'll do well, it's fun, it's like Pirates.

  29. 29

    "better than you thought?" and ur surprised? ur the one who said avatar was a flop!!

  30. @v@ says – reply to this


    No, this doesn't do a thing for me.
    I understand his appreciation for parkour, and would go see that.

  31. 31

    Re: TripFontaine – agreed

  32. 32

    yeaaa…they made a movie about persians and no one in it is persian. and the lead actor has a british accent. wtf? there are tons of good looking persians that they could have used for this film. yes, i get it, they want it to be a "blockbuster" hit, but this is a streeeeettttch. btw. did anyone see 300? again…no persians.

  33. 33

    Only going to see it for Jake haha!

  34. 34

    I have played all three games (The Sands Of Time, Warrior Within, and The Two Thrones) and I hope it does not end the same way the game ends but still I would watch it anyway.
