  • Kayla McAllister

    Out of all video game movies, I think this angered me the most. I loved the games this was based off of..and they changed EVERYTHING. Not to mention the white washing of the character casting. To be honest this movie is pretty much the exact same movie as Assassins Creed only with slight changes in script. Doing the same thing to its franchise of games.


    3:29 If you where on a hill or in a flat plains area, you could see the light of a single match from more than 5 miles away with nothing blocking it, so its not a sin they saw a torch down below them, even if it was far away, no sin there.

    I liked the sins but the movie does explain about the time travelling dagger that it shouldn't be used too much? If used something bad will happen. Idk I have watched it a long time. and also I felt about using the dagger when the heroines kingdom is at stakes. Anyone helping me here?

    Always on-board for silly sins. But the constant sinning of not using the dagger even though Tamina says RIGHT OFF THE BAT when Dastan uses it that he used up a lot of the sand, thus making it evident that there is limited use of the dagger, so they wouldn't use it unless ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY, was irritating.

    You can't really sin the jumping and parkour. It's true to the game series pretty much. Even the 2d prince of persia was about parkour and jumping out/over dangerous situations.

    Jakk Frost29 days ago

    Just to further add to your engagement, 4:03 is not a useless parkour move, not by the movies physics at least. He does that to build momentum for the move immediately after, where he gets a little higher up the other wall and launches himself at the horse's rider. Basically he uses the wall as a halfpipe, even if that might not be how it works irl. But you knew that already, I'm well aware. 🖕😜

    the king or sultan or whatever didn't wear a fucking crown in real life. don't think any middle eeastern countries had crowns like that. that's a total european thing...especially british. not to mention the fact all these people are straight european not even remotely middle eastern. the temple in the movie or maybe it was a castle or something had hindu gods....like wtf hollywood you piece of shit you can't even get that right? why is the prince and many others speaking in a full british accent?

    Admittedly I didn’t have the patience to watch through the whole video so if he comments on this later on then fair enough, but is anybody talking about how Jake Gyllenhaal is white in what realistically is a role for a middle eastern actor? I love Jake, but his presence here doesn’t really feel appropriate. He’s certainly not the only whitewashed role, either. Just bears mentioning I feel

    More whitewashing bs. Yeah yeah I also read something about Persians being technically Caucasian or something at the time, but besides Ben Kingsley, would it have killed them to cast someone with a little brown in them??? Rodrigo Santoro as Xerxes from 300 or the Persians in "Alexander" had the right idea, and it looked authentic or at least not as odd as Jake and Gemma in these roles

    :Loved the movie and loved the video! Plz keep them coming, especially the older Indiana Jones movies! As for why Tamina didn't use the dagger after she got it from Dastan the first time, she had said that he'd used up all the sand when he used it what I think was 3 times in a row, maybe 4. He tried to fill it with normal sand, but it won't work without special sand. She was trying to get as much distance as possible before using the sand from around her neck, but wasn't able to do it.
