    Wit is in short supply, but director Miller at least keeps things moving briskly throughout the relatively brief running time.

    Patric’s bullet-scarred killer-gone-clean is a tired character in every sense, and no amount of exploding blood packs can make up for this much banality. At least there’s enough momentum to keep you from checking the timer every two minutes.

    All would be forgiven if director Brian A. Miller were the next John Woo, but the shootouts and car chases call to mind adjectives like “requisite” and “obligatory,” and the ready-made New Orleans ambience is nonexistent, probably for budgetary reasons.

    The action sequences are competently directed, but exhibit virtually no flair or invention.

    The Prince isn't just awful, it's depressing.

    So unless you're a fan of yawn-worthy shootouts and showdowns, The Prince is a "Taken" retread hardly indicative of any special set of skills.

    Screenwriters Andre Fabrizio and Jeremy Passmore fail to conjure a single witty line. Nor is there any finesse to be found in director Brian A. Miller’s inept staging of car chases and shoot-outs.

Main protagonist wasn't well worked out. I failed to see the point of that girl who followed him around. The story was so-so, again not much there. I already watched The Outsider shortly before this and that movie has similar premise however it was much better. I don't know, can't recommend it. Expand

I'm sure the makers of this were planning on creating their own version of Taken, but boy did they fall short. Hackneyed plot with poor performances, Patric sleepwalks through the lead role, and Willis and Cusack have obviously just turned up for the pay check. A complete waste of time Expand

Not one person is interested in this movie, not the writers, the actors, or the director, not a single care was taken. The "Plot" is the same regurgitated non sense about an ex Black-ops/CIA/Marine/Superman who gets his daughter kidnapped so now he has to go save her. This is also Bruce Willis' worst performance to date as the villain. This better not be shown at any theater or be displayed at any video store, no one should watch this. Expand

    I reviewed Vice, which was godawful, and I talked about The Prince which was godawful. The Prince is a lazy example of low budget filmmaking,I reviewed Vice, which was godawful, and I talked about The Prince which was godawful. The Prince is a lazy example of low budget filmmaking, at it's ultimate worst. This movie has nothing good to talk about, fact is, it has nothing okay to talk about. The Prince is a ripoff of Taken, and boy it disappoints. The story, well, what was it? Like, Vice, Brian Miller forgets about everything and focuses on the oddly violent action sequences, with the most horrible green screen, you will see in a movie. It's not even a movie, it's a practical joke, played by Miller, on Bruce Willis, who gets framed in this bad thriller with a pay check that is not as deserving. Same goes for Joan Cusack, who makes movies for the extra dollar now, ex. The Bag Man, which had Robert De Niro, who ALSO makes low budget monstrosities like Killing Season. The chain reaction goes on and on and I fear that maybe, actors like Tommy Lee Jones or Tom Cruise might fall under the same demise to earn some bucks. I hope, you haven't watched this movie, it's trailer or even got free tickets to it. It's a shame to Hollywood. Nuff Said. Expand

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. This movie stars big-time actors like Bruce Willis and Rain, Bruce Willis is an big-time actor in Die Hard and The Expendables and Rain is a big-time actor in South Korea and newcomer Jason Patric in it, the action is perfect but the ending is a godsmack failure flop even winning the fight, better avoid watching this movie and instead play The Sims, DOTA and other games, avoid this movie at any cost because if you do, you're just making Bruce Willis $ 1 Million To Be Paid and He Hasn't Made Enough Money In The Expendables, Poor Rain Anyway and Avoid This Because Old Bruce Just Wants Your Money!!!!!
