Overview and Review of The Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time directed by Mike Newell.

Based on a video game. This movie was set in the mystical lands of Persia. A young fugitive prince, Dastan and a beautiful mysterious princess, Tamina must stop the dark forces who might unknowingly destroy the world for selfish gains using a special dagger that enables the magic sand inside to reverse the time.

I've always wanted to watch this because it's a Jerry Bruckheimer Film and at the same time a Walt Disney Pictures. I am a big fan of both. And once again, they never failed me. It wasn't predictable there was a surprising twist in the near end which I really enjoyed. I like the chemistry of Dastan and Tamina. The action scenes were all great, everything about the movie is very vivid and engaging. I heard that some actors had to learn "parkour" for a scene that I enjoyed really well. I also had loads of fun with the ostrich racing.

Quotes I Love:

Tamina: That's impossible.
Dastan: Difficult, not impossible.
Tamina: All the more proving you're insane.
Dastan: Then why do you look so impressed?

Tamina: All the pain in the world will not help you find something that does not exist.

King Sharaman: Family, the bond between brothers is the sword that defends our empire; I pray that that sword stays strong

Tamina: So I'm being escorted by Prince Dastan, the Lion of Persia. Must feel wonderful winning such a claim for destroying such an innocent city.
Dastan: Oh, a pleasure to meet you too, princess. And allow me to offer, that if punishing the enemies of my king is a crime, then it's one I'll gladly repeat.
Tamina: Then you are a true prince of Persia. Brutal. Without honor.
Dastan: Don't make the mistake of thinking you know me, princess.

King Sharaman: A great man who would have stopped what was wrong, no matter who was ordering.

King Sharaman: The princess of Alamut will be your first wife! What say you, Dastan?
Dastan: Uh...
King Sharaman: He plunges into a hundred foes without falter, but before marriage he stands frozen with fear!
Dastan: I need a drink.

Tamina: Protect the dagger no matter what the consequences. That was my sacred duty. That was my destiny.
Dastan: We make our own destiny, Princess.

Tamina: You know you walk like one, head held high, chest out, long stomping strides, it's probably from being told since birth that the world was yours.
Dastan: I wasn't born in a palace like you! I was born in the slums where I fought and scratched and clawed for everything that I got!
Tamina: Then how did you become a prince?
Dastan: I don't know, the King. He found me, he gave me, a home, a family. You're looking at the look of a man who has lost everything.
