You're not thinking big enough, Sinbad. Steal the book for ransom and you can be rich enough to lounge on an island beach. Steal the book for me, and you can buy the beach. And the island. And the world.

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 »

"Sinbad: Legend of the Seven Seas" is a wonderful animated feature by Dreamworks. This under-rated movie was very well done with eye-catching visuals and an intriguing story. The scenes of the battle against the sea monster, and the visit to Eris' realm in Tartarus are particularly artistic. Granted, the legend of Sinbad may have been taken far from its "Arabian Nights" roots to go more towards Greek mythology. But all the mythic elements make the story a thing of wonder. Personally, I think every mythology and folklore canon in the world has some connections with each other, so who's to say that Middle Eastern folklore doesn't share any similarities with Greek mythology? Anyway, "Sinbad" truly deserves to be seen and enjoyed!
