‘Prince of Persia’ delivers great quality acting and production

A game beloved by millions, “Prince of Persia,” has made the leap to the big screen.

The film, which runs 116 minutes and is rated PG-13, all but explodes off the screen with stunning visual effects by Industrial Light and Magic, the effects company behind both Star Wars trilogies. From the gorgeously choreoraphed combat scenes, to the huge variety of costumes and settings, the film is a visual feast.

Also supporting the movie are high quality performances by all the actors. Jake Gyllenhaal portrays Dastan with warmth and depth, a rogue who is by turns serious and witty.

The difficult role of Tamina is carried off with resounding success by Gemma Arterton, who manages to showcase Tamina’s gift for subterfuge and acting, while staying true to the character’s core personality.
