Lent: Part 39

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (2010) – So many things piss me off about this one:

  • Prosthetic abs.
  • The waste of such talents as Alfred Molina and Ben Kingsley. Ben. Kingsley.
  • The world’s most thinly-veiled allegories about the Iraq war and libertarianism, in the case of the former, well past the point when any such allegory is relevant or even interesting.
  • The whitenest whiteys playing Persians. This is nothing new, but are we still seriously pulling that shit, Hollywood? And along those lines:
  • Jake Gyllenhaal doing a British accent. What?
  • Almost two hours of the above. Two god-damn hours.

What an appalling waste of time, money and talent.
