Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time has a lot to live up to. The games in the series have been fantastic with a storyline perfect for the big screen. However, there has yet to be more than just a few (we have named 4) videogame movies that haven't been just awful. Plus, in the aftermath of Uwe Boll and his offensively bad films, worst of which being In the Name of the King: A Dungeon Siege Tale which brought in only $10 million worldwide on a $60 million budget, people are scared of videogame movies. This film could be the one to change all that, however.
