Prince of Persia:Sands of Time - Movie Review
My children wanted to see the Disney movie Prince of Persia: Sands of Time. I was thinking, great another remake of Aladdin. I was pleasantly surprised.
The graphics were excellent. My oldest son insisted the movie was based on a video game which explained some aspects to the movie. Heavy on the action, I still felt the story was strong enough to carry all the action.
There was one section that both I and my youngest son struggled with frustration. Either give us more clues or tell us already.
Families with older children (rated PG-13) could sit down and have a family movie night. I would caution families with children under ten. I'm not sure they would understand the mystical scifi storyline.
There was also one scene in the beginning in which some sexual humor occurred. See Internet Movie DataBase for Parental Guidelines: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0473075/parentalguide .
I loved the overall theme of this movie, fight for your family. Brothers taking care of each other even when appearances tell you otherwise regardless if family connections are biological or adopted.
