Prince of Persia
Went to see Prince of Persia with low expectations. Movies based on video games tend to be bad. Mostly because they lack content, focusing only on action packed drama.

PoP turned out differently. It may not be the best movie ever. If that was their ambition they would have to look deeper into the cultural and mythological material they were dealing with. That said it was actually a good movie. Interesting characters, engaging plot etc. The villain could have been better although the actor did a nice job with what was offered.

The most interesting part of the movie was that it did not lack content. PoP adressed the problems with  the Bush administration's big mistake of launching an attack on Iraq. The movie was in fact one big apology of this mission of TOTAL FAIL. And it actually managed to say this in a clever way.

However, the solution to the problem failed in the movie, saying that we should listen more carefully to our heart. On the contrary. The problem in the movie and in the Iraq war was, that we did not think carefully about what we were doing.

If we could learn to think better instead of following simplistic feelings we would indeed be better off.
