Young Sinbad


Young Anthony comes from a materialistic rich Republican family. One evening, his mystical flatulence-prone grandfather shows him a book about the adventures of Sinbad, a legendary medieval Middle Eastern sailor, explorer and adventurer, who's also their ancestor. Grandpa also show Anthony a magical coin that can remove the boundary between fantasy and reality. They use it to take part in the adventures Sinbad has in the book. However, this causes a Jumanji-like effect, since stuff from the book occasionally comes to life inside of their mansion. Despite being a sailor, Sinbad and his party are this time on mainland, where they meet a funny and strange old sage. At first, Sinbad can't stand him, but the immediacy of their situation brings them together. Bophisto, one of the most powerful and evil wizards of all time, is dying, so he's sent his minions to find the key to all knowledge, which could tell him how to heal himself. They are led by two generals, evil and very eccentric Murki...

The most awful movie that was ever made.
12 July 2004 | by (Victoria, BC, Canada) – See all my reviews

I have seen some stinkers, and this was the worst.

How bad was it? There were 8 of us in the audience...2 people left 15 minutes in, another 2 left halfway through, and one guy left right before the end. The three of us who remained heckled it until it was over. We didn't even know each other, and we were all taking turns yelling insults at the screen.

Everything was abysmal. The script, the actors' performances, the effects, the dialogue, EVERYTHING. It's just not possible to see how terrible it is without sitting through it for yourself...and fortunately they didn't ever release it to video. What a surprise! :\

I want those two hours of my life back. No; I want compensation for the time I spent sitting in the theatre.

And for the record, did we *really* need to see that much of Mickey Rooney's sweaty chest?! I respect Mickey Rooney's career, but that was a NEW low.
