John Applebottoms of themovieblog.com writes, "All video game movies suck. Don't shoot me for saying it… it's just the way it is. There are however two franchises that I've always thought stood a CHANCE at making decent films… Warcraft, because the world, mythology and backgrounds are so huge that a good writer with a free hand could make something pretty special out of it, and Prince of Persia."
"It was announced sometime ago that mega-producer Jerry Bruckheimer (Pirates of the Caribbean) was interested in producing a new series of films and got the rights to Prince of Persia. Well… it looks like things are moving ahead full steam. They've gotta director on board, and they're aiming to start shooting in June!"
