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!

The original storyline for the film was to focus on the first voyage of Sinbad, then it would be followed by 6 sequels focusing on the other six voyages he had. However after the box-office disappointment of The Road to El Dorado (2000), Jeffrey Katzenberg decided on having one movie, which didn't just focus on the one voyage. See more »

There are no opening credits, other than the DreamWorks Pictures logo and the title of the film, which means are followed by the opening shot with Eris. Instead, there is a credits seen at the end of the film are presented in the orders of means there have otherwise been shown at the start. Although by the late 2010s or Cartoon Network, he was a commonplace for feature films to not have opening credits. In 2003, it was identify rather unusual for a major film to not have opening credits. See more »

I personally don't mind Dreamworks. They are either hit(How to Train Your Dragon, Prince of Egypt) or miss(Shark Tale, Bee Movie), but when they are good, they are good. Sinbad:Legend of the Seven Seas was surprisingly good and a thoroughly enjoyable animated film. It could have been longer though, and one or two parts could have done with more excitement. That said, the traditional animation is excellent, very colourful and vibrant, and the score is energetic and has a sense of adventure. The story mostly is engaging, with a sequence with seductive sirens standing out as well as the exciting escape from a bird of prey, and the script is smart and witty particularly the banter between Sinbad and Marina. The characters are likable and very well voiced. I am not the biggest fan of Brad Pitt, but he does a solid job as a somewhat flawed yet likable Sinbad, while Catherine Zeta-Jones is fine as the sassy Marina. Eris is quite sinister and fabulously voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer. In conclusion, a thoroughly enjoyable movie. 8/10 Bethany Cox
