At the Movies: Prince of Persia

Prince of Persia: 2

An okay vehicle for  Jake Gyllenhaal.  The story of a foundling brought up as royalty and second in line for the throne.  In the course of invading a kingdom, he acquires a magic dagger that lets him travel back in time.  He uses it to foil a plot by another relative to take over as king.

As a parkour movie it's too long.  As a game-derived movie, it's okay.

(overheard leaving the theater: "If I saw Jake's face on the screen one more time, I'd have to strip and throw myself at the screen")
