Dreamworks' latest effort sees a roguish sailor wrongly accused of a theft he didn't commit, thanks to the machinations of the Goddess of Chaos, briliantly voiced by Michelle Pfeiffer. Finding himself condemned to execution, Sinbad's playmate, and prince of the realm (Ralph Fiennes) nobly steps in to take his place. Thus, Sinbad finds himself on a potentially suicidal voyage, racing to retrive the book of Peace, before his estranged friend must be put to death. The action sequences and special effects are incredible, and were especially breathtaking without the scratching on the cinema screen, but the film suffers for its writing and the over-acting of some of its cast members. Brad Pitt as Sindbad is well-cast, obviously enjoying the role - this comes through wonderfully in his performance, but the film's attempts at pathos and romance often seem forced; the best drawn relationship is that between Sinbad and his dog, which provides quite a few of the laughs...
Despite its flaws, the film is enjoyable for its energy and visual audacity alone, and comes highly recommended for all ages - even more so in all its digital glory.

Having Sinbad-mad kids we finally succumbed to buying them this DVD in the hope that they would like it. Well, contrary to many critics’ views that it is an animated adventure only for kids, I found the whole DVD delightfully entertaining with enough smart one-line quips to keep adults amused and plenty of swashbuckling battles of the goodies against the baddies to maintain 100% children attention.
Brad Pitt’s voice comes across extremely well, as does his Joseph Feinnes, but in my view the star voiceover was that of Michelle Pfieffer who plays the Eris, the goddess of Chaos who resides in the fantastic realm of Tartarus. She adds so much more to the character than either Pitt or Catharine Zeta Jones, perfecting a warm sensuality, a pinnacle of deviousness and a flash of brutality that leaves you almost hoping that Sinbad really does sail away to paradise with her.
The extras that come on the DVD are good… Cyclops Island is a post-film preview of what Sinbad and Marina get up to on their subsequent adventures and the Making of Sinbad is entertaining.
No real downsides at all. A good buy.

What a great movie! Brad Pitt as the voice of Sinbad is excellent, his vocals bring so much energy to the role that you nearly forget you are watching an animated film.

The movie itself is very fast with great action scenes, wonderful animation (no less can be expected from that amazing DreamWorks team), great one-liners and an invloving story/adventure. The music and sound effects are excellent adding greatly to the enjoyment of this movie.

The DVD extras are very good indeed. There are a large number of games for the kids which should keep them entertained for several hours and several other features, including a 'making of'. This is a great family movie and a good watch on a slow Sunday afternoon.

Its not the greatest story I've experienced in an animated feature (Sinbad goes in search of a magical book to save his childhood friend from being executed) but then, Sinbad movies never really are about deep and complex storylines - they are just an excuse for some fancy special effects and escapism. Such is the case with the old live-action movies that featured Harryhausen's animated creatures. But this updated version of the Sinbad legend does indeed contain some gorgeous visuals. The sea is beautifully animated and there are some colourful and dramatic backdrops.
The action scenes are tremendously exciting, with some awesome camera angles and lots of fancy acrobatics and swordfighting. This is some of the nicest blends of 2d and 3d animation I've seen.
The monsters are impressive, but not too scarey for kids. Most of the appeal comes from the human characters as they perform death-defying feats to survive against the monsters, which often results in a little gross-out comedy.

Sinbad himself (voiced by Brad Pitt) is depicted as a brutish thief - I suppose this is to contrast him against the usual nobel heroic type of Sinbads that we've seen in other movies. The thuggish, sarcastic act does feel a little annoying and uncreative after a while, with Sinbad's response to most questions being "yep" "uh... yeah" and "uh... No". And the whole romantic comedy aspect between Sinbad and the heroine (voiced by Catherine Zeta Jones) is also kind of predictable and tedious. What saves this movie for me, however, is the rest of Sinbad's crew, which is comprised of kind-hearted thugs armed with some vicous weaponry and crazy acrobatic skills.

Sinbad - Legend of the Seven Seas is a little less rushed than usual for a DreamWorks 2D animated feature, but it still never quite works. The plot feels a bit too TV and the mixture of traditional hand-drawn animation with computer graphics isn't exactly successful, with the CGI coming off as the loser - generally fine for the creatures, though like Sinbad's ship they often seem to lack any real weight that prevents them from properly integrating with the rest of the film. Okay if you're in an undemanding mood, but Ray Harryhausen has nothing to worry about.
