Storyline

Sinbad and his crew intercept a homunculus carrying a golden tablet. Koura, the creator of the homunculus and practitioner of evil magic, wants the tablet back and pursues Sinbad. Meanwhile Sinbad meets the Vizier who has another part of the interlocking golden map, and they mount a quest across the seas to solve the riddle of the map, accompanied by a slave girl with a mysterious tattoo of an eye on her palm. They encounter strange beasts, tempests, and the dark interference of Koura along the way. Written by Ed Sutton <esutton@mindspring.com>

Riveting adventure film with amazing creatures by Ray Harryhausen
20 April 2005 | by ma-cortesSee all my reviews

The pic talks about the hero Sinbad and his extraordinary and surprising adventures . Loose retelling of the ¨ 1001 Arabian nights¨ , based on ancient legends , deals with Sinbad The Sailor (John Philip Law) who travels until an island to discover a fountain of fantastic power with the aim to heal a Vizier (Douglas Wilmer) . Simbad sets off in search of the fountain and aboard a ship along with a motley crew (constituted by an enticing Caroline Munro , Martin Shaw , Aldo Sambrell and Kurt Christian) . They will have to face off several dangers : Homunculos , ominous monsters , giant animals and villains (Tom Baker and henchmen) .

In the movie there are mythology , emotions , adventures , fantasy , swashbuckling and it's pretty bemusing . It is an exciting fantasy-adventure full of special effects created by means of stop-motion technique by the magician Ray Harryhausen . The runtime is adequate with various incidents and sub-plots . Harryhausen works his animation magic around a well-developed screenplay and engaging acting by the entire performers . Ray can once again claim credit for the unusual and marvelous mythical creatures springing to life . The confrontation amongst the protagonist and enemies along with monsters is mesmerizing and fascinating : impressive duel between ¨Goddess Kali¨ with amount of arms and Sinbad , great monsters as the centaur and the breathtaking scale models are made by the Dynamation system , by means of stop-motion . The motion picture is the best from ¨Sinbad trilogy¨ : ¨The 7th voyage of Simbad (directed Nathan Juran with Kerwin Matthews and Kathryn Grant)¨ and ¨Simbad and the eye of tiger¨ (directed Sam Wanamaker with Patrick Wayne and Jane Seymour)¨ . The film obtained much success and achieved enough Box Office . Good production by Charles H. Scheneer habitual of Harryhausen's films . Cinematography by Ted Moore is colorful , brilliant and shining and classic music composer Miklos Rozsa creates a magnificent and astounding score . The motion picture is rightly directed by Gordon Hessler . The yarn will appeal to fantasy and fancy imagination movies buffs . Rating : Above average . Well catching .

Other pictures about the great hero Simbad are the following : ¨Sinbad the sailor¨ (1947) with Douglas Fairbanks Jr , Maureen O'Hara and Anthony Quinn ; ¨Sinbad of the seven seas¨ by Enzo G Castellari with Lou Ferrigno and John Steiner and the cartoon movie ¨Simbad the legend of seven seas¨ (2003) produced by Dreamworks , a combo of computer generator and hand-drawn animation by Patrick Gilmore and Tim Johnson with voices from Brad Pitt and Catherine Zeta Jones .
