I saw POP last thursday. I'll probably go to see it again, only because of Jake (actually I'm not sure, it will depend on my bank account, as theatre are quite expensive)

I loved Jake (as usual), I found him great as an action hero, noy a standard one, but he played the role of the young, sensitive and brave Dastan very well (I love Jake's goofy attitude). He dosen't take him too seriously, and that's great, cause he has a great humour and he can make fun of himself. That's remarkable.

unfortunatly, I was a little bit disappointed by the movie: actually I knew before that POP is not the kind of movie I go crazy for, I mean, I'm not really into big production and action movie (star wars is the only ecception, but Star Wars is a pillar, so it's quite different).
I think that the plot had some problemes, and Gemma Artenton is far from the oscar, but there was also something missing. I saw Pirates of the carribean, and I really liked it (even if I found Orlando Bloom terrible), but certainly Johnny Deep make the difference (I adore Jake, but Johnny is an astonishing actor).

Maybe I should see POP again, but my first impression wasn't that positive: it's a nice movie, special effect are amazing, Jake plays very well. But still there's somethning missing.


Pretty much what I think of the movie. Plus, the ending is really bad, story wise. I mean, they really rushed it, I found it completely ridiculous XD

I saw it again today!! And enjoyed it another two hours to see Jake jumping around!! He is so gorgeous I have to repeat it over and over again!!

But I like the end of the film. It wouldn't be a Disney movie without a Happy Ending. The only thing that is sad is that Princess Tamina doesn't remember her adventure with Dastan!

Is there any news about a sequel of the movie?? That would be great!!

It's not the fact that it's happy that I dislike, it's just incoherent. Basically it was "Hey, we kinda destroyed half your town, killed your entire army, but we realized it was a mistake, so to excuse us, please accept this man as a husband." And she accepts. I mean REALLY.

Oh well, don't listen to me anyways, I'm always ranting about blockbuster movies

It's fine that you've this opinion and you're right in a way that it is a bit incoherent! In the beginning the princess was very furious about them and the fact that they destroyed her city and all but I think even if she doesn't know anything about the adventures she and Dastan had lived through she is surprised that Dastan is giving her the dagger in the first place and that is what makes her so curious to get to know Dastan, I think! That's maybe why she forgets to be angry! Which woman wouldn't by looking into Jakes' eyes! LOL

I'm always glad about happy endings even if they aren't logical because they make me leave the cinema in a good mood!

I don't like happy ending, in general.

And I don't like Disney's movie (except for the old cartoon, like the sword in the stone... I', absolutely crazy about it!!!)

But this is my opinion, I prefer other kinds of movie, more intimate and realistic.

Anyway, as I said, I think that Jake did a good job

very interesting!

for me... the end of pop was the best thing of the movie (plot). and i think it was okay. first, dastan was a nasty guy who fighted against taminas destiny - afterwards, he shows some kind of humility and with giving the dagger back he shows some totally different purposes. not astonishing, that tamina accepts him now.

and... it was clear from the beginning of their encounter that there was a physical attraction between dastan and tamina even when they struggled against each other.

even when you think these words are crazy... by the sand of time reality has changed and rewinded, but couldn't it be possible that some of the great love between dastan and tamina is still shining through like a shadow of her destiny, gone but already present? (okay, you must be some kind of romantically minded to accept this )

bertie i don't think there will be a sequel of pop. a production budget of 200 mio. and not even 300 mio at the box office ... that's not enough! in the past there were sequels canceled where the introducing movies were more successful than pop.

I agree with you on that attraction between the two of them from the beginning!! It was really obvious but cute!
And as I am a romantic minded person I agree with you on that other possibility that some of the great love between the two is shining through. When Dastan hands her the dagger she looks a bit as if she knows him already... *dreaming*

Oh, okay, I didn't know how much it had made at the box office so far. This is not much, you're right! Then the possibilties of a sequel are pretty small, that's true!

I was surprise this saturday but I tell you all the truth :

I REALLY REALLY REALLY LOVE PRINCE OF PERSIA !!

When I wait for the movie with 2 friends of mine, I was afraid, a little.
But happily I love this movie. All. The actors, the subject, the rythm. All.

No critics, for me it's a good movie. Pleasant, funny, with all I need in this kind of stories.

And the cute smile (the Jake's cute smile) !!! He's too handsome, to nice, too too.

$700,023 from $300,000,000 WORLDWIDE!

Exciting hey!?

Total Lifetime Grosses
Domestic: $86,177,000 28.8%
+ Foreign: $213,100,000 71.2%
= Worldwide: $299,277,000


There's lots of people saying that international won't make up the costs and because it made such a small percentage in the US it can be called a flop..but i really don't understand it all. A $200 million budget did seem A LOT though. Looking a various budgets for other films coming out now..

But to me 300 million is a lot of money

Didn't think I would, but I saw PoP for the second time recently. It was a good experience, because I was more relaxed and caught some things I missed the first time around. There is a lot of subtlety in Jake's performance. As an actor he is natural and totally believable, which I love. For me, the story itself is uninteresting, and I have problems with the editing, which sometimes manages to obscure what Jake is doing in the action scenes. But on the whole it's a solid production, with nothing cheap or careless about it. A lighthearted fantasy escape--the type of movie many of us appreciate.

Just read on the Web that PoP is still in the top 10 of summer movies. That's not bad, is it? It's certainly not losing money.
