Ubisoft's popular video-game series of the same name gets adapted for the big screen in this sweeping fantasy adventure starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton. The setting is sixth century Persia. A nefarious nobleman covets the Sands of Time, a legendary gift from the gods that allows its possessor to turn back time. Whoever owns the Sands of Time has the power to rule the world, and this villainous lord would use that power to enslave all of humanity. The only person capable of defeating this tyrant and saving the world is Dastan (Gyllenhaal – DONNIE DARKO), a youthful prince. Now, with plucky princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton – QUANTUM OF SOLACE) by his side, Dastan will attempt to prevent the Sands of Time from falling into the wrong hands. Mike Newell (HARRY POTTER AND THE GOBLET OF FIRE) directs a script penned by Carlo Bernard, Doug Miro, Jordan Mechner, and Boaz Yakin.

A pleasant enough fantasy adventure film, in the style of the Mummy, this film looks good, has plenty of action, and does not take itself all that seriously. It is much like an extended episode of Hercules or Xena, but with better acting and production values. It is not particularly related to the computer games, which is just as well as the computer games are pretty one dimensional (and I say that as a fan of the games).
