    What did you guys thought of this movie? I thought it was a fairly solid movie and an adaption that amazinglly did not suck. The characters were neat and even the Persians were portrayed in a competent light. My only complain is the lack of arabian/persian actors in a movie that is set on that particular zone.

    I'm pretty much the same. Solid, entertaining that does not suck and fun to watch.

    Casting Persians however, would probably difficult. Persians/Iranians are not Arabians (there's in fact, a bit of racism between the two) and with Iran the way it is, I think getting actual Persians for the film would've been next to impossible.

    On another not, Tammina was kind annoying for a good part of the film. She would not shut the fuck up.

    Still, quite a hottie.

    It's been my experience that persons from Iran and Europeans don't look that different.

    Good movie. I didn't quite like the ending though it did make sense.

    And I would watch part 2 if they made it. I honestly thought this movie should have made alot more money domestically than it has so far.


    Another thing, it's funny comparing this persian king to the persian king of 300.

    Me and my son liked it.
    It was a good action movie that had nice nods to the game while not being tethered by it.
    Still, why not just call Tammina 'Farah'?

    Just saw this, probably the best video game movie out there along with the first Tomb Raider. although, it did have a assassins creed feel to it as well
