Storyline

Doctor Gulliver is poor, so nothing - not even his charming fiancée Elisabeth - keeps him in the town he lives. He signs on to a ship to India, but in a storm he's washed off the ship and ends up on an island, which is inhibitated by very tiny people. After he managed to convince them he's harmless and is accepted as one of their citizens, their king wants to use him in war against a people of giants. Compared to them, even Gulliver is a gnome.

HIGHLY ENJOYABLE WITH A GREAT SCORE
22 August 1999 | by (CARDIFF, WALES) – See all my reviews

From the same production stable as "THE 7TH VOYAGE OF SINBAD",this movie is not quite in the same class as the latter but remains a highly enjoyable piece.A very much watered down version of part of "GULLIVER'S TRAVELS" the film benefits not just from typically superb Harryhausen effects but also from a fabulous score from Bernard Herrmann (one of his very best and sadly neglected)and a performance from Kerwin Mathews as Gulliver that displays the usual integrity displayed by this pleasing actor. The leading female role is attractively played by a very pretty British actress of the period,June Thorburn who fantasy fans may remember from "TOM THUMB".Although it is not as well known or as revived as often as "SINBAD" or " JASON" it is hard to imagine anyone being disappointed by this "GULLIVER" which is far more fun than the Ted Danson version of the mid 90's.
