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.

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.

Apart from the animation, hence the special visual effects of this animation, the film is rather banal though it has little to do with the original Sindbad the Sailor. It adds a supernatural evil world dominated by a woman that goes far beyond the story as we know it and even as we can dream it. The main story here is about the existence of a book of peace that establishes peace in the world. The supernatural evil being wants to steal it to create chaos and havoc. She manages at first and then Sinbad has to recuperate it.

Yet the story adds three elements that give it some interesting dimension. The first one is a dog. Sinbad has a big and extremely faithful and frightening dog that can fight just like any other sailor. Sinbad is not a merchant he is a captain and he has the whole crew of his ship under his own command, including the dog who is also a perfect autonomous attacker..

The second real change or addition is the fact that Sinbad has an extremely old and close friend and it looks and sounds like more than just a best friend. This best-er friend is ready to exchange his own life for that of Sinbad after the evil woman has stolen the book and Sinbad is accused of being the mastermind of the theft. But this best friend is about to get married to the daughter of the local ruler. So she does not exactly like the deal. She knows Sinbad has not stolen the book his best friend had brought in the first place, but she does not trust Sinbad who is supposed to go and recuperate it. So she goes along, incognito at first but very fast known of all and public.

That’s the really funny part because she falls in love of course with that poor Sinbad who did not exactly fell for her at first sight, even if his dog did.
