Just saw this. I was honestly expecting a really, really bad movie, but I thought it was pretty OK, actually! Definitely better than I expected. :) All the jumping around was pretty cool, it felt a lot like the game at times.

I didn't expect much either and it turned out to be good. However far from being a perfect 10 is that I can't get over that principle actors are not Persian or of the kind.

The most exciting thing I've seen all year so far. I am a huge fan of ARABIAN KNIGHTS movies and this is among the best in a long time. Action, action and more action although snakes aren't a favourite of mine.

I'm also not a big fan of Jake Gyllenhall so it was great to see him playing almost a squashbuckling hero and those eyes, that hair, that accent - I would climb over him to get out of bed.

All in all a great 90 minute plus movie and I'd go back and see it again if I could afford the $17.00 ticket.

Can't wait for the DVD - I'll buy it when it first comes out rather than waiting for the price to come down.

Yes it was that good.

I thought it was perfectly delightful fluff :lol: Silly, yes, but it could have been a lot worse! I thought Jake was great in it, Gemma was gorgeous and Alfred Molina was awesome. Great way to spend a few hours.

I totally agree on that one, it screwed up the start for me, but overall, it was all right though. Honestly, I enjoyed it more than Iron Man.
