When we first saw previews for Prince of Persia, I remember commenting “Jake Gyllenhaal…?” But that kind of miscasting was the least of (or at least only one of many) the problems with this movie. I really don’t know if I should blame the script, the direction, or the acting. All of it was bad- and sadly not in the so bad I enjoyed it kind of way. It was just bad.
To top it off, let me tell you- when you give Ben Kingsley that kind of facial hair, it’s a dead give away that he’s the bad guy.
