The sailor of legend is framed by the goddess Eris for the theft of the Book of Peace, and must travel to her realm at the end of the world to retrieve it and save the life of his childhood friend Prince Proteus.
A teenager finds herself transported to a deep forest setting where a battle between the forces of good and the forces of evil is taking place. She bands together with a rag-tag group of characters in order to save their world -- and ours.
A Persian sailor named Sinbad is on a quest to find the magical legendary Book of Peace, a mysterious artifact that Eris, the Greek wicked goddess of chaos, has ultimately framed him for stealing! If he fails on this quest, his childhood friend Prince Proteus of Syracuse will take Sindbad's death penalty, while Eris gains a desired foothold of power in the world of mortals. Written by

According to an article in Wired, this is the "first Hollywood production created entirely on Linux". Animators used more than 250 HP workstations, loaded with Red Hat Linux and custom animation software, to render the film. See more »

You're really not going to lose any sleep over this, are you?
Not a wink.
Because me, I'd be tossing and turning, knowing I'm alive... because I let my friend die.
Augh! I'm not responsible for this mess! And I didn't ask Proteus to put his neck on the line for me!
Look, clearly I can't appeal to your *honour*. But I have other ways of convincing you.
Really? Uh... Just how do you expect to do that?

I know and love all the movies with the famous "Sinbad" (from the Ray Harryhausen time). But I find the recent remakes (TV production) are always boring because off the lack of imagination from the directors.
So I hesitated a long time before watching this one. (above all with a "DISNEY" movie ! I feared to fall asleep.)
But I love this one ! The story is absolutely new, surprising and imaginative. The runtime's movie is short, so no time to bore. The charactere way of talking is really fun and modern, with hilarious quotes. My favourite one is when the Sinbad's ship arrives at the end of the sea, and someone says : "Well, at least, that proves earth is flat !" (LOL !)
Not a masterpiece, but a really good entertainment !
