Watch Prince of Persia - Alternative Versions.
Tonight I was fortunate enough to see an advanced screening of this
film. Like many, I became a fan of this franchise with the Sands of
Time trilogy, and I was very excited when I learned that there were
plans to make a feature film based on it. The storyline of the game is
very cinematic (at least in the aforementioned trilogy, not necessarily
in the previous games in the series) so I felt that at film adaptation
would be an impressive epic.
Having finally seen this movie, I can say that I was not at all
One of the main strengths going into this movie was it's involvement of
the series creator Jordan Mechner. He crafted a very engaging screen
story that pushed beyond the controller, creating an entirely new
addition to the mythos. I know that at times including the creator can
sometimes stifle the process, as many will fight changes to the source
material that may need to be altered to work better with a director's
vision; but I feel that Mechner's involvement showed his desire to see
his brain-child develop into a success on the big screen.
In addition to involving Mechner, the other big strength was the way
that the filmmakers chose to handle the story. Let's face it, movies
based on video games have a very poor track record. Super Mario
Brothers, Street Fighter, Tomb Raider... all of them made for films
that were mediocre at best, and downright abysmal at worst. Prince of
Persia had a mighty big hurdle to clear with this, and they found the
perfect team to tackle it. Jerry Bruckheimer and Disney already
accomplished a similar feat when they brought Pirates of the Caribbean
to the big screen (a movie based on a theme park ride, in a genre that
had not seen success in 50 years!)
Their strategy was the same, they wrote their own story that borrowed
elements from the game, but did not strictly follow it. The film stands
alone, and does not require it's audience to be intimately familiar
with the source material. The nods to the game throughout were great,
but I was relieved that I was able to enjoy this film for what it was,
rather than constantly looking for where it deviated from the games.
This movie clearly was made for someone like me, and in my party of
four, three of us, who were all guys, loved it. The fourth, who was the
only woman in the group, was less than impressed, and complained that
it was too much action. If you're expecting Citizen Kane, you stand to
be disappointed, but if you expect this to be another video game
adaptation, you are in for a real treat!
