Trivia

The character wearing a skull mask and called The Great and Wise Oracle is actually a stock footage insert of the leader of the Moon Men taken from Maciste e la regina di Samar (1964), slightly modified by voiceover and light effects. In the movie's next scene battles a stone man on Skull Island. This can be understood as an homage to above-mentioned peplum, in which similarly fashioned stone men play an important role as well.

Sinbad, a genuine 'tour de force'
18 January 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is inspired. You may not realize it at first, but heck, when Apocalypse Now came out some people were vacuous enough to dismiss it. Years later it is rightly recognized as a classic. Some critics never seem to learn. One of the main reasons for watching this film is a show stealing performance by the Town Crier (who is that guy?). The rest is a riotous hoot that few could convincingly find fault with. Sinbad, for once depicted as a conflicted tragic figure, is flawlessly portrayed by Lou Ferrigno, who displays considerable acting muscle here, in a performance that lights up the screen and at moments even eclipses the impeccable photography: think Storaro on acid, meticulously framing mythical creatures, damsels in distress, lavish landscapes galore. The memorable cast of characters (who will ever forget Jaffar?), and their titillating escapades, leave an indelible impression on the viewer - a veritable magical mystery tour through visual and emotional landscapes forgotten by modern cinema. For the cerebral cinephile in search of a rare moment of movie magic.
