Video Game Review: ‘Prince of Persia Trilogy HD’ Packages Classic Games

CHICAGO – I’m nervous that future generations will remember “Prince of Persia” more for the awful Jake Gyllenhaal movie than the massively-influential and beloved video games on which it was based.

CHICAGO – Jerry Bruckheimer has reached a point in his career where he feels capable of making a film out of anything.

CHICAGO – Historically, video game adaptations are recipes for disaster when translated into film. While “Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time” with Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Arterton has a blockbuster opportunity to buck the decades-old trend, we’re just subjected to more of the same soul-deadening time drain.
