- Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Released in 1995, Braveheart plunges us into the heart of the 13th century, in Scotland. We follow the story of William Wallace played by Mel Gibson, who is also the director of the film. William, having gone into exile in Rome following the deaths of his brother and his father, returned a few years later to his native lands and married Murron MacClannough. He married in secret to avoid the droit de seigneur. After the discovery of the deception, she is executed, which triggers the armed struggle of William against King Edward 1st. Awarded at the Oscars in 1996, Braveheart immerses you in the heart of a dark and violent medieval universe in love with freedom.
Exodus: Gods and King
We continue with a film of the same caliber. Directed by Ridley Scott (Alien: The Eighth Passenger, Blade Runner, Legends), Exodus: Gods and King tells the story of two princes, Moses, played by Christian Bale and Ramses, played by Joel Edgerton. We are then in ancient Egypt. Moses, learning that he belonged to the Hebrew people, was banished from the empire by Ramses following a prophecy. Guided by God in person, he now aims to guide the Jewish people and free them from the Egyptian yoke.
The 13th Warrior
The 13th Warrior is an adventure film adapted from the novel Eaters of the Dead by Michael Crichton. Directed by John McTiernan (Predator, Piège de cristal), the production was able to see the light of day in 1999 in our dark rooms. We find Ahmed Ibn Fahdlan, a former poet from the city of Baghdad condemned to exile for having seduced another man’s wife. Accompanied by a friend of his father, he is taken on board by a group of Vikings, then dragged against his will to the Nordic lands in order to face a most mysterious threat.
Mulan is part of Disney classics and legends of the Middle Kingdom. Originally released in 1996, we find it here in a live action remake. Directed by Niki Caro, the adaptation is directly inspired by the legend of Hua Mulan. Following a decree forcing the men to go to war, Mulan decides to take part in the fight in place of her injured father. Continuing a tedious training pushing her to her limits, our protagonist takes part in a fantastic adventure that will make her name into legend.
Pathfinder, Warrior’s Blood
Revenge films have always aroused great interest among viewers. Appeared on the big screen in 2007, Pathfinder, Warrior’s Blood immerses us in the heart of a conflict between Vikings and Native Americans. Ghost, abandoned by his Scandinavian colleagues, is raised by a native tribe that he considers his true family. He even becomes while growing up one of the most powerful warriors of the tribe. Fifteen years later, the Vikings return and massacre his new people. Filled with hatred and rage, Ghost will do everything in his power to avenge his adopted people.
Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time
Resuming the game of the same name, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time invites us into the Persian kingdom. Dastan, orphan adopted by the king of Persia, is a proud and faithful warrior like his two brothers Tus and Garvis. Having received the order to attack the city of Alamut to flush out a spy, our hero discovers a mysterious dagger with divine power on the spot. Once back home, Dastan is wrongly accused of the king’s assassination, and finds himself forced to flee. Released in 2010, the feature film is directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire). In addition, we find in the script, Jordan Mechner, the scriptwriter of the first game Prince of Persia.
