Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

Is there anything even remotely historically accurate in the film, or is it just the adaptation of the video game?

I do not know the video game, but the film has nothing at all to do with the real world history.

The disclaimer I always use for any movie set in any even *remotely* historic period is:

"Loosely based on events on the planet Earth."

In this case it would be an extremely polite description. ;D

The plot starts with a Persian king adopting a street urchin and making him his heir in order to

prevent his two sons from fighting each other over the right to become king, and from then on

it becomes more and more implausible, with daggers enabling people to travel back in time, ma-

gical sandstorms that can destroy the world and similar stuff.

So, other than the Persian king, it's just a historical retelling. ;)

OK, I've seen it... It's about as historical as the Northern Lights novel: i.e., the place names, the architecture, and the way characters are dressed are familiar, but everything else is fantasy.
