Movies based on videogames are usually not very successful in Hollywood as in the case of Max Payne, Street Fighter and Hitman recently. But ‘Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time‘ is perhaps one of the best in the genre and that’s not necessarily a compliment.

The film starring Jake Gyllenhaal and Gemma Artenton and directed by Mike Newell (Love in the Time of Cholera), follows an adventurous prince who joins a rival princess to stop an evil ruler whose plan to unleash a sandstorm could destroy the world.

 

Although the film is visually stunning and at times entertaining, the film tends to be very childish and not absorbent enough to retain the interest of adults. However, the infantile humor and cheezy romance is perfect for teenage audiences.

‘The Uninvited’ is not your prototypical horror, suspense film. It actually makes an attempt at telling a good dramatic murder story, unfortunately it falls short due to its dreadful dialogue and laughable climactic scenes… until the very end when the twist hits you like a ton of bricks. You never see it coming.

To be brief, the story, based on the 2003 Korean motion picture called “Janghwa, Hongryeon “, is about a family who lost their matriarch in an action-movie-like explosion only to have their youngest daughter (Emily Browning) be committed to an asylum due to the mental and emotional scars of the occurrence. After a period of time, our young protagonist returns home to learn that her father (David Strathairn) has moved on with his life and intends to marry his dead wife’s nurse (Elizabeth Banks). Bad blood brews between the two females and the journey to unmask the true objective of the nurse begins.

The pacing of this film is rather slow, mixed in with average acting and a banal dialogue that only exists to move the story along. The films true virtue lies in its ending and it really is the only worthy element of ‘The Uninvited’. Question is can you wait until the very end?
