%%For the love of GOD, can we leave the stuff about the one inconsequential mook that's used to handwave Nazim knowing about the sand glass off this page? The film's page has already been locked over it, and the JBM page for the whole bloody series has been locked and redlinked over it. Unless you're trying to get every single page with PrinceOfPersia in it locked, just leave it the goddamn hell alone.

* It's a small one, but one of the main themes in the movie is the importance of brothers and brotherhood. In the original PrinceOfPersia game, Jordan Mechner (who helped write the film) used photos of his own brother to create the Prince's sprite. Jordan's brother brought the Prince to life. Neat, huh?
** Related to the lack of [[OurZombiesAreDifferent sand zombies]]: If Dastan could extract their Sands of Time, he'd probably just [[GameBreaker abuse the Dagger of Time]] at every pivotal plot point. Perhaps that's why they weren't in the movie?
* [[spoiler:Nizam displayed surprisingly competent swordwork immediately following his VillainousBreakdown, the reason he was such a pushover during the film's climax was because his hands had been burnt in that timeline.]]
