Great Animation, Poor Characters

Sinbad the Sailor (1935)

** (out of 4)

Here's a rather bizarre short from Ub Iwerks that has a group of pirates tracking down Sinbad and stealing his treasure. Sinbad decides to stick around to see what they do with it and with the help of a large bird he goes to steal it back. Iwerks made a lot of shorts based around famous characters and more times than not the animation was terrific but the stories were rather weak to say the least. I'd argue that perfectly sums up this movie because we're given some wonderful visuals but all of the characters are rather bland and the film lacks any good laughs to help keep it entertaining. The Technicolor is another major plus but it's just not enough to save the picture.
