I'm seeing the story of Prince of Persia 1, but much of the visual elements of the third game. And with that dagger, I can see fight scenes to be similar to Matrix if someone kept messing with the remotes rewind button.
But this temple thing isn't part of the original story... seems to be there for scenery changes. I didn't see any of the Sand Zombies (thats what I call them at least) no hinting toward the battle with his father (which means they're either hiding it or its not there) and I hope to god that this Demon is NOT the Dehaka. If it is, I will be a very unhappy kitten >.>
My last gripe is the actors. Fara and 'Prince' are just not working for me. After listening to Princes narrative for the whole first game, and his amazing performance in Two Thrones, this Pirates of the Carribean style demeanor isn't sitting well with me.
Despite all this, I am looking forward to it ^^ even if all of those fears come to pass, it'll be a far cry better then most game based movies.
...are they guna make a game based off the movie?
