A few days ago, I posted a pretty scummy-looking trailer of the upcoming Prince of Persia: The Sands of Timefilm. By scummy-looking I mean the quality of the video, not the quality of the film.
Of course, not everyone agreed — some of you guys immediately said it looked like a generic action film, and have written it off as Hollywood bastardizing a game you’ve come to love. I understand being hesitant, and to an extent, I see where you’re coming from with this.
But can you honestly say that the film doesn’t at least look to deliver a competent, relatively entertaining action blockbuster? As a fan of the series, I’m excited to see the final result. I see a lot of elements taken directly from the games, from the Prince’s costume to the look of the “Dark Prince” in a few of the time-bending sequences.
Crossing my fingers that it won’t suck. I’ll say this, at least it didn’t make me “LOL” like this. LOL, indeed.
