Disney and Jerry Bruckheimer joined forces to create the "Pirates of the Caribbean" franchise.
They teamed up again to produce the swashbuckling "Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time." It's based on a successful video game, which ensures an audience of millions of teenage geeks who own and play the game.
The PG family appeal is enhanced by adding elements from other successful adventure films. Indiana Jones, James Bond and Spiderman would all feel at home in this movie. Dramatic thrills and desperate characters fill the screen.
Epic battles, political intrigue and loud special effects punctuate the story.
Jake Gyllenhaal is Dastan, the prince of the title and a very buffed superhero with ninja skills.
Ben Kingsley plays his evil uncle who frames Dastan for the murder of the King.
Alfred Molina provides comic relief as the leader of a band of outlaws who befriends the fallen prince.
Gemma Arterton is the stunning princess and love interest in the plot.
