Since I saw Jason and the Argonaughts when I was seven I was completely drawn in by the Ray Harryhausen movies. Although the monsters don't look as real as the ones in Jurassic Park and Aliens they are more like fairy tale monsters and fairy tales aren't true! When I got to see this movie on TV there was even more special effects in which was even better! The story is about Sinbad the Sailor who is going to ask Prince Kassim for his sisters hand in Marridge but Kassim has been turned into a Baboon by his evil step mother Zenobia. To break the spell Sinbad must find Malanthials the wise man who knows how to cure Kassim on thier way they encounter a Bronze Minaton, Army of Fleshless Ghouls, A Sabre Tooth Tiger and a friendly Trogledite called Trog.
FIVE STARS!

I have been waiting for quite a while for this film to emerge on DVD. The wait has of course, been worth every second.
'Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger' is the third film to feature the intripid Captain Sinbad and co-starring a whole host of fantastically lifelike monsters, bought to life by Ray Harryhausen, who is of course the King of stop motion animation!
If you have already watched through 'The 7th Voyage of Sinbad', 'Jason and the Argonauts' or 'The Golden Voyage of Sinbad', (which are also fantastic films), then you'll know, more or less, what to expect. If you haven't, then trust me, you're missing out, but here's roughly what to expect from 'Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger'. You can expect, good, evil, magic, adventure, monsters and another princess.
Captain Sinbad (played by Patrick Wayne), having apparently decided that neither the princess from his Seventh Voyage, or the slave girl from his Golden Voyage, were good enough for him, is now after another Princess. This time it's Princess Farah (played by Jane Seymour). Okay, nothing wrong with going for another notch in his belt. The problem is, that before he can wed her, he must seek permission from her Brother - Prince Kassim, who is soon to be crowned. Okay, still not a problem, since nothing is mentioned of Sinbad's two previous 'voyages'. The problem comes when Sinbad learns that Prince Kassim has been put under an evil spell by his wicked stepmother, Zenobia, who wants her own wet-blanket of a son to become ruler instead of Prince Kassim.
So, Captain Sinbad has no choice but to grit his teeth and set out on yet another daring voyage, to find a way of reversing the evil curse.

Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger is directed by Sam Wannamaker and is the third and final Sinbad film that Ray Harryhausen (and his stop-motion creations) made for Columbia after The 7th Voyage of Sinbad and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad. It stars Patrick Wayne (Sinbad), Jane Seymour (Princess Farah), Taryn Power (Dione), Patrick Troughton (Melanthius), Margaret Whiting (Zenobia) and Nadim Sawalha (Hassan). Studio work was done in England, with the exterior location work done in Spain, Malta and Jordan.

Evil sorceress Zenobia has designs on the throne and transforms the heir, Prince Kassim, into a Baboon. Kassim's sister calls on Captain Sinbad for help, who learns that a fabled man by the name of Melanthius may be their only hope. They face a perilous journey to the end of the World (a place called Hyperborea) with Zenobia and her black magic tricks in hot pursuit.

Depending on if you are a fantasy/adventure fan or not may determine how much, if at all, you get from Sinbad & The Eye Of The Tiger. For the film is chocked full of cheese and acting of the hammiest kind. The plot is your standard set up for the irrepressible Sinbad-he must travel to some remote destination to stave off evil and realign the World, and our faith, in the name of good. While it's safe to say that the film is about 15 minutes too long for a Sinbad adventure. On the other side of the coin, tho, fans of the genre and Harryhausen's work are in for a treat.

The cast have as much charisma than you can shake a stick at, perhaps not surprising when you have the offspring of John & Tyrone starring, and the adventure is colourful and dealing nicely in the realm of the fantastique.

Like Clash of the Titans and The Golden Voyage of Sinbad, it's Ray Harryhausen's special effects that steal the show. Yes, they look a little dated now when you compare them to some of Hollywood's current big budget offerings, but, if you can look past the obvious blue-screen then you'll find yourself getting lost in a fantasy world that just doesn't seem to be about any more.

`Sinbad and the Eye of the Tiger' is the sequel to `The Golden Voyage of Sinbad' and this time out, the fearless sailor must help restore a prince to his rightful throne. Only the price has been turned into a baboon and the witch who made him that way is hot on Sinbad's crew's heels.

If you've seen `The Golden Voyage' you'll know what to expect. Personally, I preferred the first one, as this one has a longer running time and, as a result, tends to drag around the middle. However, the beginning and the end more than make up for any slowness in the middle. So, if you're a fan of classic fantasy movies then give this one a go. It will retain its special charm for years to come.
