What sands? I just kept wishing that I had Jake Gyllenhaal’s abs. He was supposed to play a Persian prince and from there I couldn’t stop giggling. The movie did feel like a videogame with its excessive special effects but the story seemed to have been lost in translation. Even Gemma Arterton seemed to have been made of 16-bit icons. I’ve seen better acting from Aeris Gainsborough. Overall, the movie was one big, bloated mess that should have stayed in a console.

Rating: ★★☆☆☆
