The last time I saw this many people who were this white was when I watched Twilight. How does someone make a movie called Prince of Persia and then proceed to cast the descendants of the Wonderbread Nation in it?
But let’s forget about the huge number of blatantly white people in this Middle-East adventure, let’s talk about how terrible the movie itself looks. It took Pirates of the Caribbean until the third film to become a truly weightless incomprehensible CGI mess, but it looks like Jerry Bruckheimer skipped right to the chase with this franchise. Never before have I seen so many digital stuntmen dodging so many pixels, or so many real actors pasted in against digital danger.
I’d like to imagine that this is just the trailer that shoots to be overwhelming and that the film itself will be a charming swashbuckler. Filled with crackers.
