Storyline

The peaceful kingdom of Baristan has an evil ruler named El-Carim. He plans to capture his rival, Sindbad, who will soon return from sea in order to marry Princess Jana. The Princess convinces the magician Galgo to turn her into a small bird, so that she may fly off to warn Sinbad of the trap set against him. She flies off just as Galgo is discovered by the guards, who take him to El-Carim. As Sindbad and his crew sail towards Baristan, the Princess-Firebird descends and lands on the ship. But before she can deliver the message, El-Carim transforms the guards into giant human falcons, to drop rocks onto Sindbad's ship sinking it. However, Sindbad and some of his crew have survived, and they carefully make their way to shore. Galgo makes his arm stretch out to an enormous length, long enough to grab El-Carim's magic ring, but the evil king wakes up in time to burn Galgo's hand. Sindbad manages to get arrested, and soon appears before the dictator as a petty thief. El-Carim is not ...

Extremely Energetic Fantasy...Dense Color Drenched Playfullness
2 November 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gaudy and Cheesy, but Charming and Colorful Fantasy aimed directly at the Children's Matinée. This is an Outrageously Ambitious (for its minuscule budget) Fun-Fest that is Energetic and almost Every Scene is Punctuated with Chintzy SFX and Puppetry with a Background of Candy-Colored Costumes and Sets.

The Small and Confined Studio is Loaded and Crammed with Wild Wonderment and Claustrophobic Calamity. It is one of those that is Fondly Remembered by Youngsters who were Entertained in Theatres and on TV.

Never Reaching the Artistry of Ray Harryhausen's Signature Series and had No Hope of Achieving Anything Near the Respect or Money Making Ability of other Similar Movies that were Popular at the Time, it made up for it with Audacity and Flaunted its Limitations Front and Center for Everyone to Ogle.

Guy Williams (TV's "Zorro" and "Lost in Space") seems to be having Fun, Frolicing through the Staged Fantasyland and Racing to Rescue the Princess. There are Villains about and Monsters to be Slain and Everyone, including the Audience, is having a Grand Ol' Time while it is all Unreeling.
