Hollywood has always been an insular place, its peculiar rhythms largely indifferent to those of the outside world. Nowhere is this more achingly evident than in Sex and the City 2, a movie so staggeringly tone-deaf it appears as if constructed in some decadent biosphere, its filmmakers unaware that they were constructing not only one of the worst studio films in recent memory, but arguably one the most misogynist as well. Whereas the close of 2008’s Sex and the City found heroines Carrie (Sarah Jessica Parker), Miranda (Cynthia Nixon), Charlotte (Kristen Davis), and Samantha (Kim Cattrall) more or less getting everything they’ve ever wanted, the sequel finds them faced with the inconveniences that come along with having everything they’ve ever wanted. Patrician Charlotte, despite the aid of both of a full-time nanny and a housekeeper, is overwhelmed by the demands of being a stay-at-home mom to two children, while high-powered executive Miranda is too ensconced in boardroom politics to attend her genius second-grader’s science faire (though, to be honest, the child is probably better off without her around). Superstar publicist Samantha, now 52, her familiar bawdiness nearing its awkward, creepy-uncle stage, is in the throes of peri-menopause, swallowing pills by the handful to boost her sex drive and forestall her inevitable descent into cat-hoarding spinsterdom.

Much of the hype surrounding the Jerry Bruckheimer faux-epic Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time, the Disney adaptation of the blockbuster videogame, has centered on its star, Jake Gyllenhaal, who for the past several months has been the main target of a not-inconsiderable amount of ridicule leveled at the film’s trailers, which admittedly range from cheesy to laughable. Surprisingly (to yours truly, at least), Gyllenhaal isn’t nearly as unconvincing an action hero in the role of Dastan, Prince of Persia's main protagonist, as the footage seemingly presaged. Granted, the period of adjustment required to take the Donnie Darko and Brokeback Mountain star seriously as a swashbuckling ladies’ man is far longer than that of, say, Johnny Depp or Robert Downey Jr., and Gyllenhaal's English accent does have the annoying habit of lapsing into a sort of drunken Cockney during times of stress, but he still proves more than adequate by established popcorn-movie standards. The film's plot draws primarily from the 2003 iteration of the game. The adopted son of Sharaman (Ronald Pickup), king of the film’s ahistorical, non-denominational ninth-century “Persia,” former street kid Dastan is raised alongside his father’s birth sons Tus (Richard Coyle) and Garciv (Toby Kebbell), and grows up to become a great warrior loved by royalty and commonfolk alike.

Bis zum frühen Mittelalter zogen die Bewohner Kasachstans als kleine Nomadenstämme über die Weiten ihres Landes. So war es für den Mongolen Dschingis Khan ein leichtes, das Land zu erobern. Nur wenige stolze Stämme haben überlebt und über Jahrzehnte Feinde, aber auch sich selber bekämpft. Selbst als die Jungaren im 18. Jahrhundert einfallen können sich die verschiedenen Stämme nicht entscheiden, gemeinsam gegen den Feind zu kämpfen. Die einzige Hoffnung ruht auf einer Prophezeiung. Nach dieser sollte ein Junge, Mansur genannt, die kasachischen Stämme zu einem Volk vereinen. Diesen Jungen sucht der grosse Krieger Oraz der Weise (Jason Scott Lee). Auf seinen ausgedehnten Ritten durch die Tundra trifft er schliesslich auf den Konvoi mit der Frau des Sultan Wali und dem Neugeborenen - gerade rechtzeitig, um den Jungen vor dem Angriff der Jungaren zu retten. Denn Galdan (Doshkn Zholzhxynov), der Führer der Jungaren, hat von einem Verräter ebenfalls von der wahr werdenden Prophezeiung erfahren und seinen General Sharish (Mark Dacascos) beauftragt, das Kind zu töten. Sultan Wali gibt den Säugling in Oraz Obhut, damit dieser ihn zum Krieger ausbildet. Zwanzig Jahre später ist der Bub zu solch einem Kämpfer (Kuno Becker) herangewachsen - rechzeitig um gegen die vor den Toren Turkestans stehenden Jungaren in den Kampf zu ziehen...
