Rambunctious, light-hearted Arabian Nights adventure..
16 September 2006 | by (Fairfax, VA) – See all my reviews

This rambunctious, light-hearted Arabian Nights adventure is a definite throwback to the genre prominent in 40's and early 50's Hollywood. And it is thoroughly entertaining, thanks to Jeff Cooper. He's just the right mix for the hero, looking fierce and macho when serious and engaged in action sequences. But when he sets out to charm a lady and breaks into a radiant smile with wide eyes, his face lights up and he suddenly looks like an innocent teen heart-throb. Lucianna Paluzzi is fetching as the lovely genie who falls in love with her master (Cooper)and helps him in his trials while jealous of his amorous exploits. This belongs in the league with the Sinbad films with it's humor and fantasy elements. Though not as spectacular, the lively and well written characters as well as its ambiance more than make up for dazzling special effects.
