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 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

In order to get a U rating (same as an American G) the British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) requires that 12 seconds featuring a head-butt had to be removed. An uncut 12 years and upwards rating would be the lowest that would allow the head-butt to be kept in. See more »
In the beginning it clearly showed that Eris pulled a thread from the world that is round. When Sinbad reached Tartarus, the "end" of the world indicated that earth is flat. See more »
So, how do we get down?
I don't know.
[She stares at him]
I don't know yet. I'm workin' on it.
You scaled a thousand-foot tower of ice, and you don't know how to get down?
Hey, if you'd rather take your chances by yourself, that can be arranged!

This mostly traditionally animated motion picture demonstrates that computer special effects hasn't completely dominated the cartoon genre. The solid storyline and only the briefest of dummy moments inserted mostly for the kids, makes Sinbad an excellent offering for summer entertainment. Instead of fluff, we get creative animation with great computer effects as highlights, characters we can care about, and a storyline based on the most basic, fundamental moral premises - the nature of friendship and sacrifice, along with a strong female character. With few outlandish, quips except for marginal characters that provide a backdrop of comic relief, the use of humor with tact, and a delightful adventure and a moral tale that brings both sadness and hope, Sinbad brings back and more the classic animation motion pictures with vivid, bright, and glorious expression. Eight out of ten stars.
