Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time

The hit video game gets the Jerry Bruckheimer summer movie treatment. It deperately wants to be Pirates of the Caribbean, but it's not nearly as much fun. Jake Gyllenhaal blasts his abs to play Dastan, an adventurous prince who teams up with a butt-kicking princess (Gemma Arterton from Quantum of Solace) some time in the Dark Ages or whenever it was they had demons and magic and crap. Together, our royal heroes find a mystical, time-controlling dagger and fight an evil dude (Ben Kingsley). Don't worry, jingoists, there are no actual Middle Easterners in the cast. 116 minutes PG-13.
