In Persia, in the Royal City of Nasaf, the fair King Sharaman (Ronald Pickup) rules the empire with his brother Nizan (Ben Kingsley). Sharaman has two sons, but adopts the orphan Dastan (Jake Gyllenhaal) that becomes part of his family. Years later, the Holy City of Alamut ruled by Princess Tamina (Gemma Arterton) is under siege of the troops led by Tus (Richard Coyle), Garsiv (Toby Kebbell) and Dastan, after their uncle Nizan had intercepted a spy carrying weapons for Alamut. Dastan invades the city with his men to avoid a massacre and the Persian army conquers the city. Dastan gets a dagger from an enemy and King Sharaman comes to Almut very upset with the invasion of the holy city. Then he arranges the marriage of Dastan with Princess Tamina. When Dastan gives a holy cloak delivered by Tus to his father, the mantle is poisoned and kills Sharaman. Dastan is accused of betrayal but he escapes with Princess Ttamina. Sooner he finds that the dagger is a powerful device to travel and change time and that Tus is not the traitor and he engages with Tamina in a quest for justice.

Really loved this movie, certainly for the action/adventure was really outstanding. The sword fights are are good, the acting is really good and there's the odd cheesy line, but overall this is one excellent movie.
