Did You Know?


When Sinbad and the others land on Lemuria there is a cliff along the left side of the beach with carvings on it. According to an interview given by Ray Harryhausen this cliff doesn't actually exist. The scene was shot on a popular beach in Spain and the cliff is a matte painting that was put in to hide all the spectators. See more »


Shortly after the defeat of Kali, Koura presents the different amulet parts and describes their function. The smallest part is named to be the "Magic Cap". Later on, however, at the "Spring of Destiny" that very amulet part is used for the "Strength of Youth" function. See more »

The best Sinbad from the trilogy!
5 August 2003 | by (Palm Harbor, Florida) – See all my reviews

I've said it before and I'll say it again, "Love that Ray Harryhausen". As far as Harryhausen's effects go, this is a very adventurous effort for him. The animated ship figurehead,AWESOME!, the six arned statue, BRILLIANT!, and the epic monster summoning battle at the end is a dream come true. I can't believe the griffon got beat by that brain-dead centaur. And Tom Baker! Hell yes! He is my favorite actor. His portrayal of Doctor Who is the best. Someone made the comment that this came out the same year as the dungeon's and dragon's game and that it came out right before star wars and how it doesn't live up to expectations and blah blah etc... Well, feel free to rent the Dungeons and Dragon's movie that came a few years ago done with that oh so wonderful computer animation we have now. What a joke, other than the special fx from star wars, Rob Bottin(The Thing) and a select few others, Harryhausen's effects are the best! Buy this movie!
