Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is out on DVD! This one ended up as a renter for me this is in part due to my concerns for the movie. Movies based on games tend to be a hit and miss venture and Disney's involvement in this project had caution written all over it.
The Sands of Time received mixed reviews during it's theater run with most falling either favorably or neutral. The best summary and confirmation of my concerns over the movie is "It doesn't offer much in the way of substance, but Prince of Persia is a suitably entertaining swashbuckler—and a substantial improvement over most video game adaptations." (Wikipedia)
I do love a good swashbuckler movie and will definitely have to rent this one!
