Having played the game countless times, I was excited about the movie, but I'm so sad to say that the story didn't have teeth to it, or if it did, it certainly didn't bite (me!).
Sure, Mr. Gyllenhall's jumping and leaping was spectacular, and the computer-generated cities quite impressive, but without a story that grabs you, you can't help but feel disappointed…
One thing for sure in the storyline that rang true to art imitating life was the point about one country invading another only to discover there were no "weapons of (mass) destruction"!
Oh, and the princess was certainly pretty but didn't look anything Persian!
