Now we all know that computer game inspired movies have never really worked, Max Payne being one that was particularly bad; what was mark Wahlberg thinking?

Which is why after the prince was tricked by a dying Vizier to unleash the Sands of Time that turns out to destroy a kingdom and transforms its populace into ferocious demons.
